Big Hero community language center

Be a part of our project!! We do support volunteers with 3-month business visas if you expect to stay in the country in the long -term ( currently the maximum time for a tourist visa is only 1 month) You will not only have a chance to meaningfully contribute to improving local lives but also meet many friendly people, truly explore Vietnamese culture, and enjoy traditional food. Some of your students might even take you around the city in a way that you could only experience with the locals. Don't be a tourist. Be a traveler. Come and experience a place off the beaten track. This life does not disappoint. We are living in a super beautiful wooden house which is close to nature so I am sure you will love it here a lot. Many volunteers extend their stay because of the house and the meaningful experience with local friends and other volunteers Our support - Vietnamese lesson - Cooking lesson - Visa support - Motorbikes or scooters are available for use to get around at no charge - Beautiful accommodation at a safe and civilized residential area - Football match with local teams

At Big Hero, you are treated as part of a family. After classes, volunteers often hang out and have fun with local staff and students at Bia Hoi

I absolutely loved my time at Big Hero! I got to connect with so many locals and the teachers and other volunteers made my trip amazing. The food is really good and thanks to Daisy I tried a lot of local specialties! Andy and Vy were also very helpful and accommodating. I would recommend this host to anyone :)

I loved my stay in the school, the place is super nice, the family and the teachers are very helpful. The teaching part is pretty simple, having conversations with the students and correct them. I would definitely come back here if I have a chance.

Had a great time during my 4 weeks in Hai Phong thanks to all of the teachers, other volunteers, and students!
They could definitely improve their communication so that there is less confusion at the beginning of each volunteers stay. Most of the information I got about the teaching, homestay, etc. was passed down through other volunteers rather than from those working at the Center.
I also ended up being the only volunteer for my last week even though I had told there should be 3-6 other volunteers.
Overall really enjoyed the experience and am going to miss everyone I met while I was there!
