English teachers are needed

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionWho are we?
    We are Everest English Centre! A suburban network of teachers, volunteers and members of the local community. In 2012 we were a just small English club set up to exchange knowledge and teach English in Me Linh, suburban Hanoi. In 2013 a group of students expanded this idea and the Center was established. Now, younger generations here in the suburbs of Hanoi can access practical English lessons with English speaking volunteers from all over the world. We are also a social enterprise for education development in Vietnam. We work in communities training, tourism and education.
    Our Aim
    We believe that education is key for development in Vietnam, therefore we aim to create an open and fair learning environment for all communities regardless of economic status. Everest provides some free classes, as well as low-priced English lessons for all ages in rural areas of Hanoi. Our priority is in helping students to overcome their fear of learning English and to achieve their dream of communicating with foreigners fluently. We also hope to empower the local people of Me Linh through enabling them the opportunity of getting a good job in an English speaking environment. We believe that your contribution can fuel these aims, bringing many benefits to our local community and society.
    Our Volunteers
    Here at the centre we enjoy creating a social and multi-cultural environment for both volunteers and Vietnamese people. You can discover the wonderful Vietnamese culture and customs through home-cooked meals, traditional suburban landscapes, daily life and local festivals. Whatever your background we welcome you here at Everest, and hope that you will learn new skills through your experience of teaching in Suburban Vietnam.
