It was my first volunteering assignment and I was nervous going in but I was made to feel home right from the moment I was in. Mr Hanh is very kind and friendly and helps you get well familiarised with the assignment, the lessons. The students and the fellow teachers were also very warm and friendly and were there to support you setting up in the place and the city. And the weekend tours are equally fun.
Thanks a lot LivingEnglish for having me, I look forward at crossing paths with you soon again.



Was a really great experience ! If you are looking for a relaxed atmosphere with other volunteers and local students then this a great thing to do! The hosts are very welcoming and the food is great! Accomodation is good and it’s a good way to get to know Ho Chi Minh city. Feels like home

Overall a good experience met a lot of cool
people !



I had such a good experience in living English! I
was part of marketing team working 3 hours a day doing photos, videos and social media content working with mr Hung and Veronica that are very lovely people. The homestay was really good and the food was nice! At the weekend we usually go out for a city tour explaining the local food o some local places. Totally recommend this place if you thinking about volunteering in Saigon!



My experience in Living English was very good! Vietnam was my first country in Asia and i am traveling by myself! Arrive in Living English was the best way to start my travel. I had the opportunity to feel “at home” even in a place I didn’t know anyone. And had also the beautiful experience of living with the Vietnamese students and volunteers from all over the world! Beside that the accommodation + food + tours they provide its absolutely incredible!! I am so thankful for my experience and totally recommend for everyone!
