Teaching English in Ho Chi Minh City schools, Vietnam

Powered by Truist

Volunteer Opportunity Details:

Last updated on April 17, 2016

The aim of the program is to provide English language speaking environment for children to practice and improve their confidence in using a foreign language in communication.

Volunteers will be responsible for the English class and will work as the sole teacher. You will be required to make a teaching plan with lesson plans using the learning materials provided to ensure continuity in learning from the teachers before and after you.
Some students have been studying in the school for a few years and now they can communicate well with the volunteer teacher. However, most of them have difficulty speaking and understanding. That's why, the volunteer’s work should concentrate on helping students with speaking and listening.
Remember to be their friend too, having fun with them through games and exercises will make it much more rewarding for them and for you.
The timetable will be given on arrival with volunteers working 2-3 evenings per week. Working hours are from 5:00pm to 6:00pm. Volunteers will work around 2-4 hours per week at the class and will use the rest of their time between other projects and classes that require voluntary assistance and planning for lessons. In summer time, volunteers can work in the class in the day time between 8:00am and 5:00pm.

Special requirements: Volunteers must show eagerness, the ability to maintain motivation and reliability, creativity and initiative when planning and running classes. Most importantly, volunteers need to have confidence in the classroom and time management skills to ensure an effective lesson.

Number of participants: Maximum 6 volunteers at a time

Language: English

Duration of the project: 2-4 weeks. Please select the dates that work best for you and submit them with your application.
