  • DescriptionMy center opens on 5th August 2018. I strongly believe that studying English at the early ages would make children improve their English. This result in my students have not had chances to study, to talk, to practice speaking skill with foreigners although they are really good at grammar. I thought that being born and living in the suburb is really a disadvantage for rural children in comparison to those living in the city. That is why I have decided to create an international community for foreigners in my area by applying to be a host in Workaway. So, coming to my center to help my lovely students to overcome their fear of learning English, so they will achieve their dream of communicating with foreigners fluently and getting a good job in an English speaking environment.
    Moreover, I would like to create a multi-cultural environment for both volunteers and Vietnamese people. You can discover the Vietnamese culture and customs through meals, landscapes and festivals. I believe that your contribution will bring many practical benefits to the community and society.

    Ideally we prefer volunteers who are able to commit to a month or more, in exchange for your work, we will provide:
    - Monthly living allowance: 100 USD (this only applies for volunteers staying more than 1 month, and starts from the 2nd month)

    - Two free traditional and delicious cooked meals (lunch and dinner). For breakfast, eggs, bread and soya milk is prepared for you.
    A monthly barbecue party is held in which you all can cook your own traditional food for everyone to enjoy, drink beer, sing karaoke….;
    - There are nearby markets and supermarkets where you can buy fresh products and cook meals by yourself if you want to;
