Teaching English in Vietnam or Cambodia at top schools





Name: Kelly – From: Gold Coast, Australia


I did the Aussie Government accredited TESOL programme at AVSE-TESOL in Phnom Penh, Cambodia on the recommendation of a family friend. This isn’t a course packed with theory only – from the start you’ll be practicing what you learn with your peers and subsequently, in real classrooms. You’ll be given practice opportunities with a range of classes, young learners through to adults. It’s the practical nature of the course that gave me the confidence to begin teaching English in Cambodia.

Would I recommend the TESOL training programme at AVSE-TESOL in Cambodia? Absolutely! AVSE-TESOL gets a five star rating from me.

Name: Hieu – From: Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
The day after I completed my university studies (B.A, English), I enrolled in the Australian Government accredited TESOL programme at AVSE in Ho Chi Minh City. I’ve been teaching now for two years at one of the larger Language Schools in Ho Chi Minh City. There are four other AVSE graduates working at the same school.
If you’re a Vietnamese person like me (or a foreigner), who’s looking to start a career teaching English in Vietnam, the TESOL programme at AVSE will provide the training and government regulated certification that’s a core prerequisite. Doing a cheap, unregulated course is certainly tempting, but if you’re serious about teaching English in Vietnam, best not to cut corners in my opinion.

Name: Reyna – From: Makati, Philippines

My flight from the Philippines to Hanoi in Vietnam was the first time that I had been on an airplane and the first time I had travelled abroad. I had feelings of excitement – and trepidation. I was excited by the prospect of taking my career path as an educator to a higher level through teaching English in Vietnam. The feelings of trepidation were rooted in the unknown.

It’s almost five years since I completed AVSE’s Australian Government accredited TESOL programme in Hanoi. The great Terry Smith from the United Kingdom was my TESOL Trainer. What AVSE-TESOL offers in Hanoi isn’t cheap, but it is immersive and worth every peso. By the end of the course, I felt fully prepared for teaching English in Vietnam.

If teaching English in Vietnam is on your radar, then doing your TESOL training at AVSE-TESOL in Hanoi is a wise move. Steeped in history, culture and the arts, there is a new experience – something that will capture your attention -around every corner in Hanoi. Importantly, there are more English teaching jobs available in Hanoi at any given time, than there are TESOL qualified people to fill them. With AVSE-TESOL in your corner, you’ll be in a great teaching job in no time.


In addition to being the nation’s commercial hub and international gateway, Ho Chi Minh City is the epicentre for teaching English in Vietnam. If you’re a person who loves what big cities have to offer, you’ll be in your element. Like elsewhere in Vietnam, there’s an insatiable demand for English language skills in Ho Chi Minh City and this directly translates into teaching jobs in abundance for people just like you. Interestingly, Ho Chi Minh City is where the owners of AVSE-TESOL started their own journey teaching English in Vietnam, more than 15 years ago.

Phnom Penh is the last frontier for English language teaching. If you’re adaptable and up for a challenge, then teaching English in Phnom Penh or another part of Cambodia is a great choice. AVSE-TESOL has been on the ground in Phnom Penh for years and we know where the best teaching jobs are available at a given time. AVSE is the only vocationally training entity in Cambodia that offers government accredited TESOL certification. Why is this important? It’s about your certification being genuinely internationally recognised.

AVSE’s online TESOL programme can be completed from the comfort of your own living room or any other location that you choose. Importantly, our online TESOL programme comes with the same Australian Government accreditation, content, trainer support and job help as our in-class course. Online TESOL at AVSE is equally suitable for teaching English in Vietnam, Cambodia or another country – and online. We accept enrolment applications for the online TESOL programme year-round.
