Premier TEFL - Vietnam Internship Review

After university I found myself in a monotonous routine, I wanted to do something adventurous and that's when I stumbled upon Premier TEFL's Vietnam internship. Looking back, the internship was the greatest and most authentic experience I have ever had.

While 4.5 months sounded perfect, it exceeded my expectations, and I found myself returning to Vietnam the following year (and again in 2021).

Weekends away to the coast or stunning landscapes, evenings free, and delicious coffee, teaching English in Vietnam is a lifestyle that is unparalleled. Whether you're a city or a nature lover, a beachgoer or a mountain hiker, a beer or a coffee fiend, Vietnam appeals to everyone.

The program helps you to transition into your TEFL and traveling journey seamlessly, and you meet plenty of new personalities along the way. With accommodation, work placement, and training, you're always supported. Our internship had over 100 like-minded teachers, many of who are my closest friends today.

If you're stuck in a rut or are naturally adventurous, the Vietnam Internship is the perfect opportunity for an authentic experience without committing to something too long.

What was your funniest moment?
On my birthday, I went to a local bar (or bia hoi) with my teacher and many of the older locals took part to celebrate my birthday. Despite the fact that none of I and my friends spoke Vietnamese, and they didn't speak English, we drank together for a long time. They drowned us in so much of their rice wine, and we were communicating through jokes via Google Translate (and the limited phrases we already knew).
