Recently I have received a lot of emails from strangers and Facebook messages from friends asking me about where to teach in Vietnam. This post is for all of you who might have the same question and I could only share about HCMC as this is where I have been living for the past years. 

Each school has its own requirements and standards so I wouldn’t be able to give you a definite answer whether or not they would hire you. I could only give you a list of schools or language centers that I know, some which I have worked for and others I have heard from my friends and they are supposed to be reputable. If you ask me about the best school or language center, that’s relative.  You’d be the one to find out for that…and tell me about it 😉 


Schools in Ho Chi Minh City:
