Despite coronavirus impacting on the teaching at the school, James still made sure we had as good a time as possible. The students I did teach were amazing to teach and hang out with. The accomodation is basic but comfortable and the private space for volunteers was much appreciated. The food was also delicious and the ability to use the bikes for free throughout the stay was extremely useful. I met some amazing people, both volunteers and locals, in Hai Phong and I recommend Big Hero to anyone thinking about going there.

Overall a great experience. James, his family, and the other volunteers were super welcoming and friendly. Very genuine and kind people. I definitely made some life long friends :)

Great way to experience the Vietnamese culture in Hai Phong. I liked that there weren’t many tourists in the city. There’s not too much to do in Hai Phong if you’re staying for long, so it’s more like living & working like the locals.

I think organization and communication can improve, but with the worlds current events and schools being closed, it made it a little difficult.

Overall, loved it!
