Teaching Children in Hanoi city CENTER.
Our children’s class sizes are kept at a manageable size, usually between 6 and 15 students. Further to this, one of our staff will always be with you in the classroom to assist in any way possible. We also provide any teaching materials that may be required as well as detailed teaching guides, to ease you into planning your first classes.
The children are very friendly, enthusiastic and eager to practice communicating with a native speaker. Most students do have a native teacher in their school already, and have been learning English from a young age. However, with school class sizes often being over 50 students, and foreign teachers only coming to teach them once a week in school, our students are extremely keen to make the most of the time they with our volunteers.
These classes are well structured, so you'll be able to apply your existing experience in a new environment or gain teaching experience in a welcoming atmosphere. This is an opportunity to gain genuine teaching experience in a classroom setting.

Help with free activities in Hanoi.
Besides teaching students inside the class we aim to increase their confidence, conversational abilities and soft skills. This is done through regular events, including both kids and adults on Sundays (which are optional for volunteers to attend). We focus on free activities such as team building, free talk, picnics, food tours, field trips and football games. This is a great way to share experiences, explore Vietnam and participate in cultural exchanges with the locals! foods, and customs. If you have any particular skills you would like to share with the students, you are welcome to organize your own activities as well.
