Teach in Vietnam

Vietnam has in recent years become another exceptionally popular destination for travellers to East Asia, due not only to its sub-tropical beauty, cultures and numerous attractions but also thanks to the fact that it offers both low cost living and extraordinary sightseeing opportunities.

Stunning Ha Long Bay with its unique limestone islands is one of Vietnam’s most famous attractions and alone worth choosing Vietnam as a teaching location, but it has plenty of competition from Vietnam’s beaches on the South China Sea coast, as well as truly stunningly beautiful countryside full of marvels, lush terraces and endless rice paddies, vibrant towns and villages – complete with friendly villagers in traditional dress.

TEFL teaching opportunities abound in this fascinating country, both full and part time, especially in Hoh Chi Minh City and Hanoi. Travel and accommodation are inexpensive, and beer and food are arguably cheaper than anywhere else in Southeast Asia.

Founded in 1996, Language Link Vietnam, a member of the International Language Link Group, was one of the first international organizations to provide courses with English foreign teachers in Vietnam. Over the past 20 years, Language Link Vietnam has been steadily growing into a leading education system dedicated to teaching English in Vietnam. Language Link Vietnam is comprised of 4 business segments, including Language Link Academic (Language Centres), Schools Link (Public Schools), Corporate Link (Corporations – Business English), and Language Link Overseas Study.

With decades of international experience and local understanding of Vietnamese students, Language Link Vietnam succeeded on the mission to raise the quality of English education, and help students form and develop the ability to use English comprehensively. Students should be able to communicate fluently on a daily basis, as well as use English efficiently in academic and working environments, both domestically and internationally.

In addition, Language Link Vietnam is a leading institute in promoting the broad approach to English learning at school in Vietnam through active collaboration with Hanoi Department of Education & Training (DoET). Over the past 16 years in co-operation with DoET, we have successfully organised the annual English Olympics for primary, secondary and high school students, attracting tens of thousands of participants.
