if your looking to teach English at schools and living 30mins away from Hanoi in a smaller town then this is perfect for you . heaps of free time . sleeping in a dorm .

about 1 year ago



the volunteering was amazing ! i made loads of great memories while volunteering .
Mr. dung is one of the great people you will ever meet, he is funny and very understanding !
the volunteering house is half an hour far from hanoi city , but it's okay ( riding the bus as a foreigner and everyone is looking at you is quite an adventure ).
the food was good , traditional vietnamese food made by mr. dung's wife :)

Great place to volunteer with very flexible hours. Weekends will be the busiest for you because there are more classes on weekends. During the weeks, if you have nothing planned you will get bored be cause there are less classes to teach and so not much to do. But Hanoi is just a 30 min bus ride away (pretty decent in my opinion. Accom is hostel style (nothing glamorous) and food includes home cooked, simple Vietnamese dishes (again nothing super glam). You must pay a fee if you are planning to stay less then a month. The lessons themselves are great to teach once you get comfortable teachin

The place is in the north of Hanoi, about half an hour to the city center. Classes are held both in the CVTD and in communities around the area. Mr. Dung takes you to class when he can but sometimes you'll have to take a bus. Food provided is good and you can also walk to the village's main street if you want to buy something. You have Monday and Tuesday off.

The classes are quite nice, some better than others. Sometimes you have a TA to help you control the students, which is helpful for the small ones.

Beds are quite uncomfortable, I couldn't get a good night of sleep most days.

Our experience in the great volunteer house was great. We were comfortable and the hosts made us feel at home. We collaborate in social networks, videos and photographs. We learned more about English. The meals were great, excellent to be honest. We particularly fell in love with the Vietnamese culture.
Thank you, Dung and Lanmai for opening the doors of your home and your heart.
