Overall I had a good experience at Dung's Family. From the accommodation it takes about an hour by bus to get to the center of Hanoi, which made it only possible to explore on our days off. The positive of location is that you really get to see how the local people love in the village. Most of the students we taught were very young and we weren't given very much guidance on what to teach, so it at times it was challenging. Also I only stayed for one week, so I had to pay for the room each night and for $5, it would have been possible to get a hostel in the center of the city.

What a beautiful experience it was to volunteer and stay with Dung and his family. Bean and Mark are great kids and it's awesome to expend time with them. The classes can be challenging sometimes, but with the time you learn how to handle it. The other volunteers were also amazing. I had an incredible time. Thank you, Dung and your beautiful family for such great memories. I'll be back soon!

Living with Dung’s family it’s been a great experience. He and his family are very kind. His wife cook very delicious Vietnamese food for the volunteers. About the classes I had a very good experience even if some times can be a bit caothic and unorganized, but kids are lovely and you feel so good when you see a big smile on their faces, as they are happy to know that they have done a good job.
Thanks for all Mr Dung, hope to see you again!

The time with Dung and his family was great! I teached English to children and spent time with disabled children, children with Down syndrome and autistic as well, which was a huge experience and absolutely recommendable! I spent most of my free time in the village, which was also a great experience, because there is a lot of contact with locals. So just join!
