TESOL Jobs in Vietnam
Vietnam is a great choice for anyone who wants to teach English as a foreign language in Southeast Asia. Demand for teachers is high and salaries are sufficient for a comfortable lifestyle.. Increasing levels of tourism and foreign investment mean Vietnam’s economy is one of the healthiest in the region. All this adds up to higher demand for English language skills and a very bright future for teachers.
In order to maximize the odds of finding a job teaching in Vietnam, you’ll want to hold an internationally recognized TESOL certificate such as that offered by ITTT. With the help of our lifetime employment assistance, you’ll be able to find jobs in Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC, previously Saigon), Hanoi and other cities.
In relation to living costs, salaries in urban areas are rather high. However, rural Vietnam is better for volunteering or working for a small stipend. In the big cities or out in the rice paddies, we’ll help you find a great job teaching English in Vietnam.
There’s an old Vietnamese saying that goes: “My king, my teacher, my father” and it expresses just how highly revered teachers are in Vietnam. Most school children are well behaved, courteous and eager to learn. For adult students, learning English means a better education and better salaries. This means that teachers in Vietnam usually have motivated students and very few difficulties with classroom discipline.
Finding a TESOL Job in Vietnam
Many employers in Vietnam post TESOL jobs on the internet while others choose to contact training organizations like ITTT so that we can put them in contact with recently graduated teachers. So if you’re unable to find a job on the internet, there’s a good chance we will know about unpublished teaching opportunities in Vietnam.
Like most countries, it’s best to find a job teaching English in Vietnam while you’re there. This will give you a chance to meet your employers, get a feel for your work environment and perhaps meet some teachers while you’re interviewing.
Securing a TESOL Job in Vietnam
When contacting potential employers, be sure to ask questions regarding rates of pay and other benefits, as well as working hours and work conditions. If accommodation is offered, ask to see it and try to speak with other teachers who live in similar accommodation. And of course, be sure to sign a contract before taking up the job.
