AVSE-TESOL’s new, two-month Vietnam TEFL Internships programme is a ‘game-changing’ initiative. It allows many folks who have been excluded from a teach and travel adventure in Southeast Asia by high fees and visa restrictions, to live the dream.
At US $1,150.00 for 9 nights’ accommodation in Ho Chi Minh City, 42 nights accommodation in the Mekong Delta region (51 nights accommodation in total), government-regulated TEFL Certification, pre- and post-programme support, cultural immersion in a local school community, teaching actual ESL classes for seven weeks, pocket money to cover basic living costs – and a lot more – you will not find a better opportunity to teach English abroad for a short period.
Degree or no degree, native English speaker, or non-native English speaker, AVSE-TESOL’s two-month Vietnam TEFL Internships programme is open to all comers. Interns will acquire ESL teaching knowledge, skills, government-regulated TEFL Certification and an exceptional work and cultural experience in a developing country. The TEFL Internship programme at AVSE-TESOL in Vietnam is perfect for adventurous people who are adaptable, keen to learn new things – and contribute to making the world a better place.
You might see the Vietnam TEFL Internships programme at AVSE-TESOL as a ‘foot in the door’ to ESL teaching and learning or as an educative and immersive experience in an exotic country. It’s ultimately your call.
Before arriving in Vietnam for the two-month practical component of the TEFL internship programme, participants will complete a number of ESL teaching modules online. This online work comes with hands-on support from one of our highly-qualified TESOL Trainers. AVSE will be by your side every step of the way – guaranteed.
How does it work?
The first 9 days of your Vietnam TEFL Internship Programme will be at AVSE in Go Vap District, Ho Chi Minh City. The emphasis will be on acclimatising, making new friends, cultural immersion, completing the practical part of your TEFL course – and checking out what Ho Chi Minh City has to offer. You will move to your internship placement in the Mekong Delta region (south of Vietnam) on day 10 of your programme and work as an ESL teacher – real school, real students – for 6 weeks. Importantly, at all times, the friendly staff at AVSE in Ho Chi Minh City will only be a phone call or an email away.
