Homestay Project: Enjoy Hanoi culture, make lifelong friends and gain valuable teaching experience!



WHAT IS A HOMESTAY?

A homestay is an opportunity to for you, the volunteer teacher, and a group of mature students to live under one roof and learn from each other, also known as immersion learning!


We have homestays all around the city available for volunteers to join. Each Homestay is located in one of the many exciting districts and located close to cafes, restaurants, lakes and vibrant nightlife.





WHO ARE OUR STUDENTS?



From university undergraduates to business professionals, all of our students are ambitious learners looking to improve their English skills for a wide variety of reasons. All students are over 18 and have a basic understanding of English before joining the Homestay program.

Each homestay also has a live in Vietnamese manager who will make sure you’re comfortable and can help you, should you have any questions or need anything during your stay.

WHAT WILL YOU DO?

You will spend time cooking, going on day trips, having loads of fun and giving students the opportunity to learn English in REAL life situations! In return you will experience Hanoi and the surrounding areas as a true local. This has proven to reap excellent results and is guaranteed to be an experience no one forgets!


You will teach our students for 3 hours a day. There are two classes of between 10 and 15 students that take place for 1 hour and 30 minutes each. One basic and one advanced lesson, these are split between 2 teachers. There will also be tutoring time where you will help 2-3 students out of the class for 1 - 2 hours on topics they require more help on. The classrooms are based within each homestay and have a whiteboard and a television available for presentations etc.

In return you will receive comfortable accommodation, three meals a day and a house full of your very own tour guides who cannot wait to show you the best of North Vietnam!



Help


We need English speaking volunteers from all over the world, especially from countries such as America, UK, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Ireland, etc...

It is helpful if you have previous teaching experience. However, if you do not have any experience but are keen to help our students or are looking to gain experience for professional purposes we would love to hear from you!

This is about culture exchange and conversational English not just lessons.

We have teachers staying all over the city that will be able to guide you with lesson planning as well as experienced managers who can answer any questions you may have and provide you with examples of previous lesson formats. The students are vey eager to learn and will also help you anyway they can.

If you’re interested in learning Vietnamese the students will be more than happy to teach you!

We would really like teachers to stay for at least 4 weeks to fully experience life in our homestay environment, get to know the students and gain valuable teaching experience. However other lengths of stay can be discussed should you want to join us.
