Job description

DYNAMIC ENGLISH TEACHER NEEDED

inc. VISA SUPPORT, TA, & COMPLIMENTARY HOUSING

We believe that the perfect time to learn English as a foreign language is from a young age. Hence, we facilitate children’s English language learning by giving them an opportunity to interact with an English speaker right from the start. Our classes feature a fun and collaborative environment, where students are exposed to authentic language, within an engaging environment. Vietnamese students tend to generally focus on grammar and vocabulary in a regular school environment, but we believe learning a language involves much more than that. Proper language acquisition involves listening and speaking skills also, and more importantly the need for a motivating educator to deliver an enjoyable experience whilst learning English. If you are a motivated teacher who loves working with children, then we invite you to apply for this position.
