EVERYTHING YOU NEED in one place, to start teaching English in Vietnam or Cambodia
Eight easy steps to a great
teaching job in Vietnam – by Peter Goudge
Teaching jobs at top schools including:
I have lived in Go Vap District, Ho Chi Minh City for my entire life. My parents enrolled me at the AVSE Language School (Quang Trung Street, Go Vap District) in 2009. As a child and a teen, I progressed through the various English language levels at AVSE – Starters, Movers, Flyers and so on – and went on to study English at university in Ho Chi Minh City.
The day after I completed my university studies (B.A, English), I enrolled in the Australian Government accredited TESOL programme at AVSE-TESOL. 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 programme at AVSE-TESOL working at my school.
While there have been breaks in between, my connection with AVSE goes back more than a decade. I know the owners, the teachers and the staff. I know that AVSE is highly regarded in the Go Vap community and across Vietnam. 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-TESOL will provide the training and government certificate you need.
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. I was also excited by the idea, like many Filipinos, that I can earn a good salary to support my family in the Philippines. The feelings of trepidation were rooted in the unknown – and because I was travelling abroad as a single woman.

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 signature attendance 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. Certainly, 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.
