My experience here was good and bad. I love the family and really felt like a part of the house and its occupants. Lunch and Dinner with the family was tasty and a great time to talk about the area. When it comes to teaching, there is no training so learn as you go. Because you are thrown in it can be stressful and overwhelming so be prepared for that. There is not a whole lot of organization so you never know how things will go. The schedule times/locations are 85% correct and the materials/class topics are about 70% correct. Living area good, no heater. It is clean. Bus to town is easy.

My experience with Dung's family in Hanoi and with Oanh in Halong Bay was great.
We spent 5 days at Dung's house where we had the real Vietnamese experience. Lovely family, house, super yummy food... the lessons were ok, it needs a little bit more organisation, but they are just starting, so I'm sure it will be improved. Anyway if you want a challenge teaching and a real experience, this is for you! Then we spent 10 days in Halong Bay with Oanh at her academy. Living the real teacher experience. It was also awesome! I totally recommend both. Thanks a lot for all your kindness Dung and Oanh!

I think people interested in volunteering here may see the 100+ pictures and high reviews and think this is more organized than it is. You will not be given a clear lesson plan or training. For most classes you will not have a Vietnamese assistant to help you teach and control the kids. Sometimes I didn't have transport to classes. For the most part, you won't be able to go into Hanoi city during the week, as it takes an hour to get there. The rooms and bathrooms are not cleaned for you. I was not comfortable in the house, and the teaching was overwhelming. Other volunteers felt the same.
