From: Gold Coast, Australia
Alumna: AVSE-TESOL, Phnom Penh, Cambodia


Would I recommend the TESOL training programme at AVSE-TESOL? Absolutely! This isn’t a course packed only with theory, 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 this course that gave me the confidence to begin teaching English in Cambodia. AVSE-TESOL also assisted me with finding a great teaching job straight after the TESOL course concluded. I loved my time at AVSE and you will too.



Name: Hieu
From: Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Alumnus: AVSE-TESOL, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam


The day after I completed my university studies (B.A, English), I enrolled in the Australian Government accredited TESOL course at AVSE in Ho Chi Minh City. I’ve been teaching now for more than a year at one of the larger Language Schools in Ho Chi Minh City. There are four other graduates from the TESOL course at AVSE working at my 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 course at AVSE will provide the training and government regulated certification that’s a core prerequisite. 




Name: Reyna
From: Makati, Philippines
Alumna: AVSE-TESOL, Hanoi, Vietnam


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. I completed the Australian Government accredited TESOL course in Hanoi at AVSE-TESOL almost three years ago. 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.

AVSE’s online TESOL course can be completed from the comfort of your own living room or any other location that you choose. Importantly, our online TESOL course 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 course year-round.


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.
