I really loved staying with CVTD for over 3 months. The host family was very helpful and they welcomed me as a family member. The food was amazing! I also had a chance to meet volunteers from all around the world. The teaching experience was a bit challenging since we did not reveive any training or introduction at the beginning and usually we were not assisted by Vietnamese teachers during our lessons but the kids were adorable so all in all it was a real pleasure to teach. Sometimes there was some disorganization but if you can get used to it, you will enjoy your experience very much!
The hours for volunteering were reasonable. I was able to transfer from Hanoi to Ha Long Bay for teaching options. This was great. There was some disorganization, but you just got to make sure to ask lots of questions, so that you aren't left in the dark. Accommodations were as expected. Lunch and Dinner were provided, so that was super awesome. As long as you are flexible you will enjoy the experience.
Overall, I learned a lot. Trang was a really helpful and delightful staff. Thanks to her, I was able to explore Vietnam more than I expected. However, the flat I stayed at had a serious problem with water-clogging which was not the most pleasant experience to have in such a tropical country like Vietnam.
Further, I was a little bit shocked to see staff's poor English fluency.
