Online TEFL

I had a wonderful experience, The course was not easy but the teacher was able to assist with anything I do not understand, and the feedback was great and useful and with study material I managed to gain all the knowledge I need to be a good teacher.

The live class session was very helpful and effective because everyone will get to talk about where they are in the course and what is most challenging and most being able to learn from each other.

Overall what I have gained a lot from the course on how to be positive.

I would recommend.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
My stressful moments were doing a presentation, but I learned to overcome it slowly and to pace myself.

Awesome team

The Ninja Team was awesome! Every team member is just genuinely kind and it is a pleasure to be around such nice people. From day I signed up, I was continuously asked how things are going. It's a detail but when living abroad, it just feels nice to have someone around.

They told me all details for legalizing documents and authenticating them and how to do it before my arrival. Questions which have so many answers on the internet, they were able to answer accurately.

What would you improve about this program?
If there is one improvement I can think of, it would be the following:

On the way to a job in Vietnam, as in any other country, there are many things to consider:
1. Which employers are good to work/reputable companies?
2. What questions should be asked in an interview?
3. What are the differences between employers in terms of payrate, working hours, number of hours, atmosphere, professionalism.
As this information is valuable for everyone, it can be written once and then shared with the community.

Just do it already!!

The Ninja Teacher staff have been absolutely amazing in helping me get out to Vietnam, providing support in gathering my documents, sorting out my accommodations, and of course making sure I was doing well throughout the course, and even after! I don't see Ninja teacher as a company that I payed (even though I did) but theyre really just a group of cool people that are excited for your new adventure, and they do everything they can to make sure your experience here is successful.

I was worried about "teaching"... I'm not a teacher. But the classes you'll take are a fantastic crash course on how to plan and give a lesson. You learn lesson planning techniques, you observe real English classes, and you complete 7 real teaching practices before the course is over. By the time the course ends you're literally a ninja teacher. Just do it already.

What would you improve about this program?
Everything has gone pretty smoothly for me.. and I can't think of anything that needs improvement.

Best decision 😄

I just completed my course on the 13th of September and I definitely think this is one of the best decisions I've made.

I was skeptical of Ninja Tecaher at first because I was curious to see if everything they were saying was true.
But after speaking to someone from ninja teacher and receiving so much support from them, my worries were put to rest.
From the moment I first contacted them back in my home country until now, I have received continued support from the Ninja Teacher team.
If I ever had a question, no matter how silly, Miranda would always provide me with an answer.

The course was quite intensive as I was warned but I still enjoyed it.
I was really nervous to stand in front of real students and teach as I am naturally a very shy person.
But after I got up there a few times, I gained so much confidence.
There's nothing like getting that real practical experience.

I couldn't imagine doing interview demos or teaching in front of students without getting that practical experience first.

I would highly recommend ninja teacher and the TESOL course they offer. They provide a lot of support which is real comfort when you're in a new country.

No Regrets!

Before deciding to do this course, I already had an online TEFL certificate, so I was debating for a long time if the cost of doing another course was worth it. I have no regrets! The course allowed me to gain confidence in teaching in front of a real class, it allowed me to ease my way into living in an Asian country for the first time by meeting new friends doing the same exact thing and having access to staff members who have been living here for a long time and can provide helpful tips and advice. They also set me up with an interview with one of the most reputable centers in Vietnam and I was offered a job before my course was over! The only negatives I would say is that for the accommodation, some people were put in recently renovated apartments whereas mine was older with a cockroach problem so I felt a little cheated there having paid the same price as everyone else, but it was only for a few weeks. I also felt we were a bit over promised on the potential salaries we could make- we were told to expect $20-$25 an hour but I don’t know anyone from my course who makes more than $17 or $18 to start even after negotiating. This is still more than enough to live comfortably in Vietnam. Overall I would recommend this course to a friend, but I would tell them to be prepared for a lot more work and less free time than I expected. Again, it’s only for a little while!

Awesome Support!

I could write about my impressions and go through all the details, but I simply by telling you my outcome...that should speak for itself.

They lined up a job for me before I even finished the course! At one of the best High Schools in Vietnam...”gifted” students. I started working 3 days after course completion with my pay rate at the high end of the scale!

After one week at my new school, I secured a great apartment two blocks away for just $270 per month!

Throughout the entire experience, and still ongoing, Ninja Teacher has been there for me. I have no doubt I made the right decision.

Happy with my decision

I had already done an online TEFL, and for a long time was debating back and forth between just showing up to Vietnam and trying to find a job or going through another course but this time with real teaching practice hours. I don’t know what the first outcome would have been but I don’t regret doing this course! It allowed me to have real teaching practice and build my confidence since I had never taught before, and brought me a whole network of friends and access to helpful resources for life in Vietnam, which made the transition so much easier.

What would you improve about this program?
While the teaching practice was great, the course content could be improved, as there were a few times the book says to just “Google” for the answers. Going much less into the theories and methodologies and more into the grammar which is what we’re actually teaching would be much more helpful:)

Helpful, Friendly and Genuine

I heard about Ninja teacher through a friend who'd recently gone through the program in 2017, after watching a few Youtube videos I decided to schedule a skype call to learn more. I instantly got the feeling these people really cared about making sure I was 100% comfortable before I left.

My first night in Saigon, Alex invited that month's Ninja Teacher group to a rooftop bar on Bui Vien, we drank, played pool, and got dinner together. Periodically through the course Alex stopped by in Go Vap and would ask us to grab lunch and catch up about our feelings on the course, always making an effort to help us have the best experience possible.

When the course finished, our group stayed in touch, and so did Alex, after a few lunches to check up on us, making sure we were content with our job placement and living situations, our meetings became more casual and I consider him to be a good friend.

Ninja teacher has added new members to their team since I arrived who are equally as helpful. I don't think there's been a question I've had that Miranda hasn't been able to answer.

I would say without a doubt, Ninja Teacher has made the transition into living the expat life in Saigon as seamless as possible. 10/10 would recommend!
