Participating in the ITTT TEFL course in HCM is a great way to meet people and experience the Vietnamese culture. During my time in the course, training to become a teacher, I made life long friends and had a blast. The course load is what you'd expect (a bit much), but the head trainer is fantastic and makes the class very easy to understand. The course also offers vital experience in the classroom. They have a great way to ease you in and feel comfortable in front of ESL students. I would have not had the success that I have had if it weren't for that. The staff was also great. HCM is full of hustling and bustling and is a completely different culture. They are very helpful getting you used to this new and different culture and in many cases, saving you money. Overall I had a great experience and would recommend not only the class, but HCM as a place to come teach English.
