TESOL Certifications in Ho Chi Minh City | Vietnam

Our tesol course in Ho Chi Minh City is the perfect place to begin your teaching career in Vietnam and South East Asia. Our TESOL course is very highly regarded and there will be plenty of opportunities to find teaching work when you are finished. Vietnam is a rapidly developing country and as it has become more economically liberal, the demand for learning English has grown dramatically.

The Vietnam War of the ‘60s and early ‘70s has tarred Vietnam’s image somewhat, however this is being put right by the amazing beauty of the country, its fascinating culture and friendly locals. These factors, combined with rapid development and modernization of the country, means that more and more visitors are choosing to visit Vietnam.

The rapid economic growth has not been at the expense of the nation’s heart and culture. A trip inland will take you to lush green paddy fields being tended to by rice farmers in colonial headwear and the towering mountains hidden by the rainforest that cover them. Moving outwards to the coast will take you to the many beautiful beaches that line the Vietnamese coast.

Formerly known as Saigon, Ho Chi Min City is the largest city in Vietnam with a population of around seven million people. It is known as Vietnam’s most modern city and is the financial heart of the country. The sight of the old colonial buildings standing amongst the modern skyscrapers is evidence of the contrasts visible here; it really is fascinating to see how comfortably the old and new Vietnam co-exists.

The conflict of the ‘60s and early ‘70s is still a huge point of interest all over the world and there are still many things to satisfy the intrigue of visitors. The War Remnants Museum and Reunification Palace can be found in the centre of the city, while if you take a trip out of the city, you can visit the Cu Chi tunnels, where the Viet Cong conducted many of their military campaigns.

Ho Chi Minh City is also home to attractions of real beauty. There are numerous beautiful temples and pagodas to be seen in the city itself and around the surrounding area. You can get away from the bustling hurly burly of the city by taking a boat trip on the Saigon River, or by heading out to the coast and the lovely beaches that can be found there.

  • What is the course schedule?

    Expand

    Orientation and the first class take place at 9:00 a.m. on Monday morning. Course sessions will generally run between 9:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. with suitable breaks. Trainees will also receive the full course schedule on Monday morning.

    Trainees are expected to attend all input and other sessions included on the schedule unless they are sick and require medical treatment. This is particularly important for teaching practice. It is very difficult to arrange alternate times and there will be an additional fee for rescheduled teaching practice.

  • What can I expect during teaching practice?

    Expand

    Lessons are delivered to students aged 16 years and older. The vast majority of students are Vietnamese but other nationalities do attend some classes. Class sizes vary from one-to-one lessons up to 16 students. Lessons are based upon real teaching resources found all over the world and you will have the chance to create your own materials as well. You will receive the aid of your course trainer throughout lesson planning and receive immediate feedback on your lesson after it’s been delivered. Practicum is assessed and a satisfactory assessment is required to earn your TEFL/TESOL certificate.

  • Who usually attends the course?

    Expand

    We average 24 trainees on each course. The majority of trainees are British or American, while many others come from Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Ireland, South Africa and the Philippines. Occasionally, we do get fluent non-native English speakers from Western Europe, Scandinavia, India, China, Thailand, etc. Trainees must be 18 years of age or older and the age range varies greatly depending on the course.

  • Is there a dress code?

    Expand

    For all input and tutorial sessions at the training location, there is only one specific dress requirement: Both men and women should have a shirt covering their shoulders. The course operates from within a school so we ask you to be mindful of this, as well as being mindful of your peers and to respect the fact that you are a visitor in another country.

    During teaching practice there are specific requirements that adhere to the local dress code. All trainees are expected to dress professionally according to the following guidelines:

    Women: Shoulders should be covered, blouses with sleeves are suggested. No low-cut necklines, very short skirts or bare midriffs. Open-toed shoes are acceptable, but not hiking or flip-flop sandals.

    Men: Long pants, slacks or trousers are required, jeans are not acceptable. Short or long-sleeved shirts with a collar are necessary, although a tie is not required. Loafers or dress shoes are both fine, sandals are not acceptable. Long hair should always be tied back.

  • What should I bring for course studies?

    Expand

    Please bring a pen and a notebook for taking notes during class. You may also want to bring a Dictaphone. It is not required equipment, but many trainees have commented that the possession of their recording device made the course easier for them. A laptop would also be particularly useful.
