Job Prospects & Pay in Vietnam:
Image of TESOL / TEFL Certification in Ho Chi Minh City, VietnamMost English language teachers in Vietnam take jobs at language centers, although some public schools can now afford to hire TEFL certified teachers. 

The work week typically entails 25-30 hours of class time in addition to lesson planning and preparation. Most language centers offerevening classes on weekdays in addition to weekend classes.

Typical wages in Vietnam for certified English teachers range from US $1000-$1500/month. Benefits vary greatly from school to school. (Salaries are always paid in dong and are usually paid at the end of the month.)

Quite often, if a teacher stays for one year, the school will pay for the airfare to another destination or will give a bonus. As you would expect, the larger cities have higher living costs, but pay rates are also higher.

Local living expenses are low: about US$500-700/month. Certified English language teachers can earn enough to live very comfortably and still save at least several hundred dollars a month.


Online TEFL / TESOL Certification Program:
The online TEFL / TESOL course consists of 150 class hours and 20 hours of teaching practice and takes approximately 11 weeks to complete.

The 20 hour practicum (teaching practice) will be conducted at an ESL classroom in your town.

An additional 30-Hour Business Professional & Young Learner module is available as an optional add-on to the main course for a total TEFL / TESOL certification of 200 hours.
