My daughter signed up for a class in April 2018. As a parent one is always concerned & cautious when your child is so far away from home. My daughter was most impressed with the quality of the training. She completed her education at various training institutes and universities spanning South Africa, Belgium & the UK and this was the first time she felt this inspired and enthusiastic ­ I think that says a lot As a parent I was impressed with the support and help provided to her. She was assisted with the process of her securing a great job opportunity. She is now settled with a really nice apartment, new friends and a great opportunity to grow. Thank you to all the friendly staff and a special mention to Vinny (teacher) who truly inspired my daughter and kindled a new fire she did not know existed. From the start to end the whole process was handled professionally and seamlessly.

Coming into this with a special education and language development background, they gave me the tools to take my talents international. I was not only given incredible educational experience but also the insight to bring my skills into an entirely new world and make me able to change lives. In addition, I was placed in an incredible school where I have the privilege to help shape
the lives of children. I could not have asked for a better TEFL course, and just as importantly, a new family thousands of miles from what I once called home. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to head down a life changing path.

VIETNAM

The destination
Think rice paddies and friendly locals!

Vietnam has so much to offer. Breath-taking natural beauty can be found from North to South, rom the beautiful mountain ranges of Ha Giang and Sapa, littered with emerald green rice paddies, all the way down to the golden tree lined beaches of Nha Trang and Hoi An. The people are warm, fun loving and welcoming, the food is unrivalled, and the culture is rich in history, charm and beauty. Our international part ner’s course is internationally recognised, you get complimentary accommodation & guaranteed employment. It’s offered at 2 locations, Hanoi & Ho Chi Minh City.

Where will you start your teaching adventure?

Hanoi
Vietnam’s capital city, the centre of government and home to over 7 million people, economic growth in Hanoi is envied around the world. Hanoi is a special place – arguably a place of unparalleled historical significance that dates back over 1000 years. With almost a bohemian feel, art and culture are on display for all to see and take in. Hanoi offers a temperate climate (for most of the year) – the traditional four seasons – and a pace of life that is noticeably slower than Ho Chi Minh City. Local people in Hanoi are big on getting out and about. From early morning through to late evening you will see local residents enjoying ‘street food’, a quite drink of some sort or just ‘people-watching’ in one the myriad of outdoor coffee shops, bars and restaurants. With a relatively flat terrain and a number of picturesque lakes, jogging, cycling and walking are common recreational pursuits in Hanoi. Our international partner’s training centre in Hanoi is located in Ba Dinh District, close to the city’s famous ‘Old Quarter’. Ba Dinh District is a mix of residential dwellings, small businesses and a sprinkling of light industrial activities. There are plenty of grocery shops for essential supplies and places to grab a bite to eat. The local area is known for being safe and is well- serviced by public transport, which is very cheap by western standards. With a fully operational English language Centre in the same building as our partner in Hanoi, you will be immersed in a real school environment from day one of your TESOL/TEFL course.

Ho Chi Minh City
Ho Chi Minh City is where it all started for our international partner more than a decade ago. Functioning as a TESOL/TEFL training centre and an English language school, the campus in Go Vap District, Ho Chi Minh City is a hive of activity all-day (and in the evening) 7 days a week. Go Vap District is a typical suburb of Ho Chi Minh City, located immediately north of Tan Son Nhat International Airport. It takes 25 minutes by taxi (US $12.00 +/-) from Go Vap to reach the downtown area. Landmarks close to the training centre include Mercedes Benz (Vietnam), Isuzu (Vietnam), the Pandora Shopping Mall, Quang Trung Software Park (the largest information technology hub in Vietnam) and the internationally renowned Go Vap Orphanage

While meeting the requirements of the TESOL/TEFL training programme will be your priority, there will be ample time to socialise with your classmates, mix with local residents going about their everyday life and to do some exploring in the lanes and alleyways that characterise Go Vap. Downtown Ho Chi Minh City might have popular tourist sites like Ben Thanh Market, Reunification Palace, the War Museum, the Saigon Basilica and an array of expat bars, but Go Vap District has what Vietnam is best known for – local people. In a quiet moment when you reflect on your time completing the TESOL/TEFL course in Ho Chi Minh City, almost certainly the friendliness of local people will immediately come to mind. In addition to affording the opportunity to experience ‘the real Vietnam’ while you are completing the TESOL/TEFL course, Go Vap District has one of the best night markets in Ho Chi Minh City, a multitude of restaurants and all the services you would ordinarily find in a suburb of a major city. Banks, postal services, medical clinics, movie theatres, a bowling alley and more outdoor coffee shops than you will have time to visit are all close by.

Online was a briefly tempting option because of how cheap they can be, but in the end, I opted to study in Vietnam. I’m 100% sure I made the right choice. A great mix of theory and practical, where you are encouraged to be creative.

Nicholas

If you are thinking of doing a TESOL course, I highly recommend this place. Right after the course, I landed a job at one of the prestigious language schools in Vietnam. I have also met some of the most amazing people through the course

CAMBODIA

The destination
Think rice paddies and friendly locals!

Cambodia is a Southeast Asian nation whose landscape spans low-lying plains, the Mekong Delta, mountains and Gulf of Thailand coastline. Phnom Penh, its capital, is home to the art deco Central Market, glittering Royal Palace and the National Museum’s historical and archaeological exhibits. In the country’s northwest are the ruins of Angkor Wat, a massive stone temple complex built during the Khmer Empire. The raw beauty of this splendid nation is something to write home about!

Where will you start your teaching adventure?

Phnom Penh
The course is based in Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia. This is a city on the march with a level of growth envied by most developed countries. Now, very much open for business, the transformation of Cambodia from a rural backwater to an economic powerhouse and ‘must visit’ location over the past decade is nothing short of a miraculous.

The TESOL course is fantastic. I wasn’t sure that I would feel confident and ready to teach in the ‘real world’ as soon as I finished the course, but man, I really did. I landed a job right away, and have been teaching since. Kym

The course is a great experience and you are guaranteed to learn useful tips and teaching methods.If you want to be successful in teaching English as a career, I recommend this course. MK
