We had an amazing experience!
The family is very friendly,  Levy and Gao are the best kids!

The Team was always available to help us and the material for the class was prepared in advance. We taught English to kids from 5 to 11 years old, and for sure we will miss hearing them say "Hello Teacher!".

We were living in a volunteer's house and we had fresh Vietnamese meals every day. We also had a motorbike available at all times.  

Thanks for having us.
This is an experience that we will never forget!
We hope to work with you in the future!

This was our first Worldpackers experience and we couldn't be more pleased to be here.
The family is very friendly and Levy and Gao are SUPER hosts!! It was great to be part of this educational project. The Starlight Team was always available to help us and the material for the class was prepared in advance. We were teaching kids from 5 to 11 years old, and we will miss hearing them say Hello Teacher! We were living in a volunteer house and we had fresh meals every day. Thanks for having us, looking forward to crossing paths again.

We had an amazing experience volunteering. The host is amazing, we liked them so much. They are so friendly, and easy going.
We had a private room with our own bathroom and all the meals every day.
We had a motorcycle to use, which was great.
Teaching english to kids was really easy. They are so smart and it was fun working with them.
This was an amazing experience, where we had a chance to live with the lokals, teach english, and had time to visit all the tourist spots. If that is something you are looking for then this is a place for you.
Thank you so much for having us!

Ms Hue and the team at Starlight are wonderful! If you're looking for a fun, interactive and educational experience this is the place for you. We spent three weeks here and did many things including: teaching 3 different age groups, learning about local culture as well as visiting many cool sights! Couldn't recommend this experience enough.

Really disappointing experience, because even if the host and the family were very cool and polite to me, the project is not what's announced. It's not a social project and it has nothing to do with "helping children from single mother families, children from poor families and low paid workers in rural areas of Binh Duong province that are unable to afford for English courses in other English Centers". All the student's parents are paying a lot of money for the English classes and the travelers are volunteering for this company. If you agree with this situation, the project is ok for you.

You just stayed here 3 weeks. How much do you know about us? You said: All the students's parents paid a lot of money for English class. Do you have something to show me How much????. And Please tell me Why you have good food everyday?, the Visa fee, accommodation. Do you know Why I have the fund to buy clothes for Kids in Orphange. You are 47 years old already but You thought like a baby.
