The Exchange

Hello, my name's Pham but you can call me Mr.T. I started this English center one and a half years ago. My main goal is to help our local community, providing them with LOW COST or FREE classes. I also want to create an environment of cultural exchange for our students. Haiphong is a city with a small number of tourists, so people don’t have many opportunities to practice their English.

Program Details

The volunteers will teach English for 10 - 15h a week, in exchange for authentic Vietnamese food and accommodation. The students range from young kids to adults, with varying proficiency levels. We also provide some charity classes for poor children in a local fishing village near Hai Phong. No teaching experience is required, just an open mind and a positive attitude. We need people willing to stay for a minimum of 3 weeks.
We can offer a FREE VISA invitation letter (3 months single entry) for people who can stay for at least 2 months.

Activities & Shift

We have a big building with 4 floors, with 4 bathrooms, hot showers, and air-conditioning. In our house, our volunteers from all over the world can live together and experience a cultural exchange amongst themselves. Many English classes are held in the building where we live, so the building functions as your home and your workplace. We provide bicycles and motorbikes that are free for volunteers to use to explore the city and the surrounding area, including Elephant Mountain and the Pagoda. We also have Vietnamese volunteers that, besides helping out in the classes, cook delicious lunch and dinner for the volunteers every day. But of course, volunteers are more than welcome to cook their local dishes.
