The ages of the student’s ranges between 3 and 6 for kindergartens, 6 and 12 for elementary schools, 12 and 15 for middle schools, 15 and 18 for high schools and 18 and 22 for colleges. We have different schools and you will have a chance to teach all level of students.
Our schools/clubs will provide you with a schedule of about 18 teaching hours per week. You will in charge of the lesson plan, in the classroom, with cultural exchange activities, teaching, parent meetings and so on. Though we have a teaching assistant (Vietnamese English teachers) to help you with every step and sample lesson plan for you to use.
We usually get students coming around from 8:00 – 11:00 AM and 3:00 - 9:00 PM on the weekdays and from 9:00 AM – 9:00 PM on the weekends. Each Class is 1 hour and a half and you will need to take maximum 3 classes a day (on weekends) and having at least 2 days off a week.

HELP NEED
1. Teach English at our schools/English learning centers
2. Marketing and communication, business development, etc for all the organization and its brand products. This one required volunteers to stay in Hanoi – the headquarter.

ACCOMMODATION
We offer international volunteers an experience of a lifetime!
We provide people from all over the world with a comfortable ‘home-stay’ in a lovely area of different provinces in Vietnam. Volunteers are fully supported and live within a ‘family’ situation at the house with other volunteers and/or, single mothers and their babies and staff from the organization.
Volunteers have the opportunity to learn to cook or observe Vietnamese food preparation and cooking; explore the city and region on days off; learn Vietnamese, and be immersed in the Vietnamese culture.
International volunteers live for free at the houses in return for a commitment to facilitating English classes (and other activities suite their expertise). Volunteers are asked to prepare for a commitment to facilitating about 18 working hours per week. English teaching books and a lesson plan on Dropbox will be your resource and you will be able to prepare for your lessons with your coordinator during the day.

You will have a private room with basic facilities including wifi, laundry, a kitchen, though you may need to share with other volunteers from time to time.
Food will be prepared by our staff, though you are asked to prepare breakfast for yourself since we wake up at a different time in the morning. Vietnamese food is amazing so we encourage you to practice cooking by supporting our staffs.
