  • Description

    Description

    Our center was founded by a group of students in 2013. In 2012, It was an English club to exchange and teach English to all students in Me Linh, and we expanded the idea to establish this English center where young generations in the suburbs of Hanoi can access practical English lessons with English speaking foreign volunteers.

    We are also a social enterprise for education development in Vietnam. We work in communities training, tourism and education.
    We believe that education is the key for development so that we aim to create an open and fair learning environment for all communities regardless of the economic status of the students. We provide some free classes as well as low- price English classes for all people in rural areas of Hanoi. Our aim is to help them to overcome their fear of learning English, so they will achieve their dream of communicating with foreigners fluently and getting a good job in an English speaking environment.
    We also want to create a multi-cultural environment for both volunteers and Vietnamese people. You can discover the Vietnamese culture and customs through meals, daily life and traditional landscapes and festivals. We believe that your contribution will bring many practical benefits to the community and society.

Your lesson plans will be shared can learn from your experience.

    - To increase work capacity and teamwork skills for Vietnamese youth and students in community activities .

    Working time: Maximum of 20 working hours/ week. During the day, you will have a lot of free time; therefore, you can travel, explore and meet with friends in Hanoi or surrounding areas.
