TEFL Hanoi

Hanoi is the capital city of Vietnam and is located in the north of the country. Despite not being the biggest city in Vietnam, Hanoi has a population of just over 7 million people- that’s twice the size of Jamaica and Qatar.

Described as dynamic and busy, many find that they stay much longer than intended, thanks to the warmer autumn and winter seasons and picturesque landscapes that include tree-lined streets, historic buildings and museums, and 20 + lakes.

So, why do people want to teach English in Hanoi?

Accommodation in TEFL Hanoi

The advertised fee for our TESOL programme in Hanoi does not include accommodation, providing you with the flexibility to choose the accommodation that suits your needs best.

To sort out your Hanoi accommodation, you will be supported by our local partners to find a place to stay that’s within your budget and will meet your personal needs. These choices will be presented to you, with clear information and photographs after you have booked the TESOL programme, allowing you to make a final, informed choice. 

Accommodation near the TESOL training centre for a duration of 25 nights could set you back anywhere from US $250.00, around £203, for more basic options, to US $500.00, around £406, for more luxurious surroundings. Once you have decided where you’d like to stay, our staff on the ground can either make the booking on your behalf, or you can take care of it yourself- it’s completely up to you.

Things to do in Hanoi

Hanoi is celebrated worldwide for having lots of things for visitors to do.

Enjoying a bowl of Pho Bo while seated on a small, plastic stool at a small plastic table, on the sidewalk of an insanely busy street, is considered a rite of passage for any visitor to Hanoi, and should be near the top of your to-do list.

The city’s Old Quarter is a great place to wander or to catch up with friends or work colleagues and has everything you need to socialize after work, including:

  • Hole-in-the-wall bars and restaurants
  • Karaoke venues
  • Cinemas
  • Pool halls
  • A wide variety of pubs and clubs

The Vincom Mega Mall Royal City is Asia’s largest underground, Western-style shopping mall that contains 230,000 square feet of retail and leisure space. For those looking for entertainment, it also features a large skating rink, a water park, and a movie theatre. Perfect for shopaholics!

History and culture buffs can escape the everyday and immerse themselves in the many artistic and historical spots across the city. From the 15 museums to cultural hotspots including preserved pagodas, sacred temples, and the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, you’ll never run out of things to see.

Travel in Hanoi

If you prefer not to walk across busy streets, there is plenty of public transport options to take you across Hanoi, including:

  • A metro train system
  • Local buses
  • Taxis
  • Grab cars
  • Grab motorbikes

Crossing Hanoi on a motorbike is akin to a high-octane extreme sport, great for adrenaline junkies! You will likely see more motorbikes in Hanoi than in any other city in the world, with reports suggesting that over 5.5 million motorbikes cross the city daily!

If you are looking to travel further afield, getting in and out of Hanoi is straightforward. The city is serviced by modern, international, and domestic airports, as well as buses and trains to towns and cities the length and breadth of Vietnam.

Bringing about the possibility of travelling to other Vietnamese must-sees on your days off simply and easily.

School life in TEFL Hanoi

After a period of settling in, your TESOL training in Hanoi will start.

The training base in Hanoi is located in Ba Dinh District, close to the central business district and the Old Quarter. Although busy, Ba Dinh enjoys a more relaxed pace and has plenty of local amenities and public transport options, meaning you can live nearby or commute easily.

Our senior staff in Hanoi have all completed exactly the same government-regulated TESOL programme that you will undertake. They’ve been where you are now and have a clear understanding of where you want to go, so can be an excellent source of help and support.

The four-week TESOL training programme is regularly described as intense, but rest assured that it’s worth the effort. By the end of the course, you’ll have the knowledge, skills and government-regulated teaching certification that’s needed to be a brilliant ESL teacher in Vietnam and other countries.

This will allow you to teach English to support your new lifestyle, while travelling anywhere in the world.
