Coffee Talk English in the perfect place to get to know locals and Vietnamese culture.
The staff is really welcoming and friendly.
My work was fun and interesting, I had to participate to some cultural exchanges and debates with local people who wanted to practice their English.
I got the opportunity to make some local friends with whom I spent some of my free time.
I really reccomend Coffee Talk English 😊

It was a good experience that I can recommend. You only work a couple of hours each day so you have enough free time to do whatever you want and the people coming to the conversation meet ups are great, I got to try vietnamese food with vietnamese people several times after the lessons and they told me a lot about their country, which was great! Also I got some money from CTE for food which I was very thankful for.
The only inconvenience would be that you cant come back at night anytime you want since the front door is closed, but that wasn't a big problem.

One of the things that initially drew me to this place was Huong's story about how she got this English Learning center/ community space off the ground. Huong has such a self- starter, entreprenuerial spirit and a genuine love for her people- it is remarkable to see it in action. I've made so many friends here and have had such a wonderful experience which I will remember for a lifetime. An overall exceptional space, where cultural exchange can happen between locals and travelers, and meaningful connections can be made that transcend language barriers. Some things are truly universal.

I spent two weeks at CTE and I had a great time. I enjoyed so much the time I share with the students they tell you about their lives, most of them have come from other provinces to study and at the same time ask you about how is your live in your country. You really have a good time while you enjoy a drink.
You also have Vietnamese lessons, they did their best with me, but there was no way! You also have plenty of time to explore the city.
Huong is a great host you feel like at home at her place, so if you are thinking about coming to Saigon this is the right place !! Thanks Huong!

Thank you so much Alicia. Hope to see you again one day, and hopefully by the time, I can speak some Spanish.

We spent only 4 days at Coffee Talk English and we loved every second of it! From the lessons and language exchange to the amazing community of HCMC. Ms Huong made us feel super welcome and made our stay great. Her students are the kindest and even took us out in city for a tour and some delicious dinner! Ms Huong has created such a great place for people to not only learn English but where a community is created. We loved our stay! Thank you Ms Huong!
