We are an independent high school located in Long Khanh, Vietnam (70 km north of Ho Chi Minh City). Whilst local schools tend to only teach grammar and vocabulary, we look to make a difference by teaching English in an engaging and practical way, and by giving them the opportunity to interact with a native English speaker. Our mission is to create a fun and interactive environment where students are exposed to authentic language situations, and can see for themselves the benefit of English in the real world. We believe that with the right teacher and pedagogy, students will be motivated and are more likely to reach their full potential. We are looking for the right teacher to share this journey with us.
We also have a language centre inside the school’s campus. You will be working primarily at the high school and casually at the language centre.
