Our partner was founded by a group of educators who have diverse experiences in education in Vietnam, all the way from Kindergarten to high school. They believe that experience is the biggest factor for change and growth. As a team of educators with a network of professionals from around the world, they want to help create a path for everyone who is in search of an adventurous teaching career.
They believe that traveling and teaching in Vietnam is one of the best ways one can make a change in the world, discover your true passion, and develop your untapped potential because everyone has the power to make a difference in life!
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. Travel and accommodation are inexpensive, and beer and food are arguably cheaper than anywhere else in Southeast Asia.
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.
This internship in Vietnam creates a new environment for you to learn and discover yourself. As an intern, you can spend your free time discovering the beauty of amazing parts of Northern, Central and Southern Vietnam whilst experiencing a completely different culture. You give back to local communities by working with local students, teachers and leaders, and through this process, you can discover yourself!
