Join our English Homestay, make your next trip to Vietnam unforgettable as you experience the Vietnamese culture in a brand new way

  • Marker details
  • DescriptionHello! Welcome to our Homestay. We are a group of friends working on an NGO with the purpose of improving English as a second language for Vietnam via a new method of learning English where learners are fully immersed in an English speaking environment. We aim to create a learning environment where eveyone lives in harmony, where everyone can help each other learn and improve.

    We welcome people with a great attitude and are willing to teach and share your experiences with others from all over the world to our English Homestay. Prior teaching experience is not a prerequisite but is always welcome. All we need from you is that you are friendly, outgoing, and eager to learn. We will provide accomodations and allowance for food to our volunteers for free.

    Our volunteers will be living with the students in our homestay, teaching them, cook with them, have coffee with them, share stories and join in community activities like fieldtrips, outings, etc. Our goal is to bring English into everyday conversations about daily lives, create an English speaking environment just as if the students are studying abroad. We provide an English speaking environment to those who can’t afford it. “Practice makes perfect.”
    What is the benefit, what can you get from this program?

    You can experience culture in a genuine way, get a peek into the daily lives of Vietnamese people, something you can’t possibly get living in a hotel or a hostel.
