    Description

    We are a company engaged in an English language training centre. Our company started in December 2015 in Phu Tho town, located in the north-eastern part of Vietnam. It is 80 kilometres away from Hanoi, the capital city.
    Phu Tho town is situated on the left bank of the Red River. After 100 years of establishment, the town has been extended in many ways, most importantly in size.

    Our company is also providing free English classes for less fortunate children as well. We want to reach out these children, especially those living in remote areas, and show them how wonderful life is. We can't do it alone, so we're knocking on your doors to make our little dreams comes true.

    We are located very close to the Hung Temple. The Hung Temple is the mountain tomb of the first King of Vietnam. Considered sacred to all Vietnamese, this location actually houses the remains of the First King, and his sons. No visit to Vietnam would be complete without seeing one of our most respected temples!

    I'm a Biology/Chemistry teacher in one of our public high schools here in Phu Tho. As for my family, we have lived in Phu Tho since the time of my great, great grandfathers. We live in a large home, which is where you will stay. My wife, 2 adorable children, and my mother & father. My mother is a former primary and secondary school principal, and my father was a former army officer, who is now engaged in local wine making. You'll have plenty of opportunities over meals to sample his craft!

    We offer a complete homestay experience, with delicious home-cooked meals 3 times a day. Rooms are comfortable, with hot showers and even your laundry taken care of free of charge. We know you will not want to leave after just a few days! This is a great chance for you to live like a local in a comfortable home. You will see the real Vietnam, away from tourists and all the hustle & bustle of the big city.

    You'll teach English to children ranging from primary through High School. *NO TEFL REQUIRED* These students are very eager to learn, and want to engage with you even when our lessons are over. Since we are a smaller town, and not on the usual tourist path, our children do not often see foreigners. Due to this lack of tourism, our volunteers are often treated like celebrities! It is common for our students to ask for selfies with you, and even to ask for autographs! Some of our earliest volunteers have been left feeling like they our students treated them as if they were rock stars!

    Just to recap, we offer:
    English lessons to children with NO TEFL REQUIRED
    Homestay in a comfortable house with a local family
    3 delicious meals per day are offered free of charge. Most of our food we grown organically ourselves!
    Laundry service
