I spent almost 2 months at VCV and had a fabulous time. I loved not only teaching, but building friendships with the students in the adult classes. They were all incredibly motivated to learn, full of enthusiasm, and very good fun! I am still in touch with many of the students, who were so instrumental in making my experience in Ha Noi so great! The day trips, where we went to various interesting places with the students, travelling on the back of the students' motorbikes, provided me with many great memories, as well as the chance for the students to converse with volunteers in a more informal, less contrived setting. 2 days a week were set aside for volunteers to either get some well-earned rest or explore more of the surrounding area. However, one thing I learned during my travels was that the most important thing is not the places you see, but the people you meet. I was fortunate enough to meet so many cool people but my greatest thanks has to go to Ms Hay, Linh and Toan, who looked after me so well and were just such lovely people. These three people could not have done anything more! All in all, my stay at VCV was a fantastic experience, and I would love to come back next year to see everybody again!
