Teach English in Vietnam with Vietnam TEFL Internship

Short-term commitment, but long term memories ❤️

Vietnam TEFL Internship

With TEFL UK’s Vietnam Internship programme, you’ll get the skills, knowledge and quality certification to teach English as a foreign language, and the opportunity to teach actual ESL classes in a real school environment in Vietnam for a period of two months.

Over the past twenty years, adventurous folks of all ages have embarked on a life-changing journey by signing up for a TEFL course (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) and then travelling abroad to put their teaching knowledge and skills into practice. Some teach English abroad as a full-time job, others dabble to fund their travels – and there are ‘gappies’ who immerse themselves in a foreign culture during a summer break or similar. Our Vietnam TEFL Internship programme caters for allcomers. You might see it as a springboard to something permanent or purely as short-term experience in an exotic foreign country. The choice is yours to make.

The Vietnam TEFL Internship programme takes place over an intensive period of eight weeks (perfect for a summer break) in Vietnam. Students will need to complete some online TEFL (theory) units prior to arriving in Vietnam, with hands-on support from TEFL UK staff.


Here’s what you’ll get:

  • Accommodation Provided

    Housing throughout internship and TEFL training
  • Cultural immersion

    Workshop and training in Ho Chi Minh on arrival
  • 170 Hour TEFL Certificate

    Inclusive Assessed and Observed Teaching Practice
