Overall, I learned a lot. Trang was a really helpful and delightful staff. Thanks to her, I was able to explore Vietnam more than I expected. However, the flat I stayed at had a serious problem with water-clogging which was not the most pleasant experience to have in such a tropical country like Vietnam.
Further, I was a little bit shocked to see staff's poor English fluency.
I had an awesome and memorable time with CVTD. I got to meet many great people from all over the world. Taking care of children with disability in Phuc tue was fun and fulfilling. They make sure we have the basic "must knows" about and "must dos" in the Hanoi and North Vietnam. We were given enough time to explore the city. They even organized a trip for us to Sapa.
I would definitely recommend this place. I tought English in the center of Hanoi and Victor and Luana were great and helpful hosts. They provide a large, clean apartment with 2 shared bedrooms and you meet great other volunteers there and make friends easily. The center of Hanoi has nice markets and great clubs which you have lots of time to visit since you only have 1-4 hours of class a day and 2 days off. Only downside: sometimes poor organization. Classes were cancelled on some days and I went to the school and waited there for a long time and nobody let me know. The fee is also quite large
