A public university, a private K-12 school, a center for visually impaired adults, and the Vietnam Institute for Development Strategy (VIDS). These are your partners in English teaching. Experience this fascinating culture as a valued resource!
- At Foreign Trade University, you generally use standard English curriculum texts and established lesson plans to present lectures on specified topics, but occasionally you may lead open discussions on North American culture, history, lifestyles, and the like.
- At Nguyen Binh Khiem School, you use games, songs, quizzes and puzzles to coax primary and secondary school students into expanding their vocabulary and conversational skills. Team-teach in classrooms, or work independently with small student groups.
- At Blind-Link, you teach basic conversational English skills to young, visually impaired adults who are in training for professional massage therapy careers. Your skills, enthusiasm and encouragement go the distance in giving them a “leg up” in their long-term professional development, and ultimately, their self-sufficiency.
- At the Vietnam Institute for Development Strategy (VIDS), a research center on national socio-economic development strategies, you’re a resource to their English Communication Program. Tutor high- and mid-ranking officials and bright young researchers on conversational English pronunciation and vocabulary. You work with up to five students and a local volunteer who helps prepare teaching materials and coordinates logistics. You may also be called on for simple English translation.
