Learning & Fun


Alex was a wonderful host, welcoming and ready to assist the volunteers in any issue that may arise. His wife Sarah is a skilled cooked and I was fed even beyond what I could take.

I made many friends and had a nice room with everything I needed. The school offered me the opportunity to learn about teaching english to children in different places and he really showed me what skills I should acquire to start a career in this field.

Just a note: the schedule was only seldom observed, this was partly the management's fault and partly the vietnamese way, but Alex is working to improve this.

Volunteering at Ngoc Hoa Preschool was an amazing experience. Alex did everything that was possible to provide a pleasant stay for my girlfriend and me. We had the possibility to teach to students of different ages, which was a challenge and at the same time a great opportunity to acquire teaching techniques. Also, Viet Tri is a city that offers several attractions, organised, clean and people is super friendly with foreigners. The school is growing fast, therefore I would recommend this volunteering opportunity to future Worldpackers!

Alex & his wife were THE best! I feel so lucky to have found them. They went out of their way to make my boyfriend & I feel welcomed & adjust to the teaching life as we had relatively 0 experience.

The Homestay was was clean, efficient & the food was DELICIOUS!!! They also took us on various trips during our stay to show us around Vietnam.

The school was amazing! Our host took the time to show us exactly what it took to teach children & adults of many ages in order to succeed.

Everything that is stated in the ad is all true! We had the time of our lives! I highly recommend them!

We really appreciate what you and Shane did for us. Welcome you back anytime


Teaching at Ngoc Hoa School in Viet Tri was an incredible experience! I learned a lot about Vietnamese people, about teaching and about myself.
Even thought our stay at Viet Tri was short, Alex, the host, was always trying to make us feel like home.
We slept in a classroom with a bed. It was cool, but the only problem was that the restroom was far away and dirty. We had to clean it up by our own.
Alex is building a foreigner community in Viet Tri and I made really good friends over there.
I will definitely recommend it and I would definitely do it again!

Thank you a lot Diego. Sorry for the accommodation was not so good, but now we already made several apartments for teachers, it’s much better. Hope to host you guys back in future

About the host

This host receives a lot of worldpackers and has a high average rating.

We have a quite large school with beautiful scene, alot of trees, plants and not noisy. We are not close to crowded living zones, so it's really relaxed.
