I spent only 10 days there and I am already planning to go back at Mr Dung's house! I was teaching English to kids - OMG I had a crush with all of them! They're so adorable. Dung's family is amazing and so helpful. I actually got lost in the city during my day off and Mr Dung came to pick me up late in the night... Thanks again haha I definitely felt like at home and I had lots of fun with Mr Dung's family and the other volunteers. Greatest experience ever! xxx
My stay with Dung's family has been a life changing experience! Mr. Dung and his family treated me like I'm a member of their family and I felt at home right away when I got there. I couldn't explain in words how I am truly thankful and grateful that I have met them. Teaching the kids was quite challenging but I felt so happy after all. The local volunteers were also accomodating. I've become friends with them too! One of them (Lua) offered me to come to her house and even showed me her hometown. I've gained a lot of friends in Vietnam! I will definitely come back there and stay longer!
Dung has a beautiful house and family about 30 minutes from Hanoi's Old Quarter. Together with his wife and two children they are a nice family to stay.
I applied to work at a center with disabled children which needed to be combined with teaching English during the weekend and some week days. It was a great experience to work with the disabled children and to get to know their specific needs and help where possible.
Since the time i arrived in the airport and saw dung's face smiling and waving at me, i knew, i was in a safe place. It was proven as i knew the family of dung. His wife, Ms. Lanh, is a very good cook. I love all her menu. Though it's just simple, all of it is delicious and even decided to try it back home :) Mark, the cutie patootie Mark and Mr. Bean who always loves to say awesome are their children whom i learned to love. They are smart and nice kids! Mr. Dung is a kind man,too. No doubt the kids as well. He's friendly, approachable and a funny man. You will feel at home around them.
Dung's is a nice guy and his family is just lovely. I expended two week and it was just great . You live with other volunteer and share cultures and experiences and also learn Vietnamese culture and food.
The experience doing clases is has fun and also hard, sometimes the kids don't understand and that is, have the atención is a little hard but is a really good experience is you just want to challenge your self. And also they help you with tips how to get better and you also you can share experiences teaching.
I absolutely will come back some day, it was just a amazing experience! thank
