First Experience as an English Teacher

The Exchange

English House Homestay is a project meant to bring together people from all over the world under one roof. The goal is to help one another to have a better understanding of other cultures. And the best way to do so is to have a common language to share our experiences and customs. In order to do so, i need your help to spend time with some vietnamese students, to fix common mistakes and to help them formulate better sentences overall.

Program Details

I also started as a volunteering english teacher in a homestay and i can't even begin to describe how useful the skills i've developed are on a daily basis.

Though, i can say for sure that it will increase;
your patience,
your ability to understand other people's point of view,
your ability to express your thoughts depending on who is in front of you,
your actor skills (haha, and i am not even joking... body language becomes a key to explain anything)

The other skills it will bring you depends mostly on what you are looking for and what you expect to improve on!

But do not worry, not having any experience is not an issue at all. As long as you are friendly, or you like to share your adventures and your culture, the students will make wonderful teachers out of you.

Activities & Shift

We expect from volunteers to help us out 3 to 4 hours a day, from Monday to Friday.

The daily schedule is split in 3 differents parts;
morning from 08:00 AM to 11:00 AM
afternoon from 02:00 PM to 05:00 PM
evening from 07:00 PM to 09:00 PM

And we try to organize the schedule depending on your daily schedule... So that you'd have time to go around the city and experience vietnam and Sai Gon (Ho Chi Minh) the way you should.
