Mr Dung and his family are really nice. They help ou if you need help for anything
However it is really deseorganised.
You don't have a schedule. You are alone for the class. You don't know how many student you have , what was the last lesson...
Sometimes I supposed to work at 9 and I received a message at 11 he will not come.
I think Yepvin need to be really more organise.

Don't go.This is not an honest organisation. I feel used, cheated,sad and angry.
The children in here are paying for the english classes, not the kind of NGO you have in your mind. I know this bec an assitant for the classes told me. In my application it was said that the classes were free for the children,but in the other programs that Dung has, it is said that maybe they pay a little, so it is not clear at all because I signed that they don't pay. Maybe the family is not taking profit of this money, but I don't believe that, we will need to do a research to be sure. Write to me to know more

Thank you for your time.If you don't want to be volunteer in our organization, you can talk to us and leave here soon. Don't use free accommodation and foods,... Other people needs that. Good luck to you!

Very good experience! The house is comfortable, good food and people are very friendly. You can meet volunteers from all over the world and sharing many experiences with them. You also can visit different places of the north of Vietnam in your free days. Sometimes it can be a bit disorganized but I'm sure that with the new ideas it could be better. I definitely recommend it!

I really enjoyed my time volunteering in Vietnam! By living with Mr. Dung and his family you get a good impression of how locals there live. The food was very good and their house is nice and spacious. It's about 40min by bus to Hanoi but it's located in kind of a village with a market which I thought is a nicer place to live than Hanoi.
The teaching itself is challenging, can also be fun but that totally depends on the class. Sometimes poor organization (No assistant in my first class).
Mr. Dung is nice and funny, the other volunteers as well!
Overall a really nice experience!
