Working In Hanoi

Moving to another country is always going to be a hugely exciting, but equally as daunting task. Getting to grips with a new culture, a new city and a new language can get a bit overwhelming, so having someone there to guide you through it makes all of the difference.

Hanoi is an amazing city; rich in culture, vibrancy and teaching opportunities. Finding the right opportunity, however, is not as simple as you might think.

My girlfriend and I both chose to move to Hanoi, hearing that there were so many teaching positions available. What we weren't told is that quite a few of these positions are with untrustworthy employers. Finding TFV has made everything so much easier. We now have jobs at respectable, legitimate Language centers, live in a lovely apartment and feel like we are part of the city.

Alex (company owner) has been great with helping us find work. He has a vast network of language centers and schools that he works with, and helped us choose one that suited us best. He was also there to give interview advice and tips, and provide help with teaching specifically in Hanoi.

Although we didn't take the full package (as we heard about the company once we had already gone through the grueling task of finding our apartment), our experience with TFV has been nothing but positive. If you're thinking about taking the plunge into the world of ESL teaching, then I can't recommend Teacher's Friend and Vietnam enough.

Yes, I recommend
