Teaching Opportunities Available at ILA Vietnam

Come Teach in Vietnam at ILA!

Whether you are a career-minded ELT professional or looking for a new challenge overseas, you will find few opportunities to match those offered by ILA Vietnam.

Why Choose Vietnam?

Few countries can offer ELT teachers a lifestyle that compares to Vietnam as well as the opportunity to immerse themselves in a truly diverse culture. Vietnamese people are warm and hospitable and teaching in Vietnam is made extremely positive by the cultural appreciation of learning and profound respect for teachers.

The cost of living is low, which means you can enjoy a fantastic standard of living whilst still saving money. The choices of lifestyle opportunities are immense. In the daytime there is a large array of activities such as shopping, going to the spa, seeing historical sights, or taking a day trip. You can stay healthy by playing football, going swimming, doing yoga, joining a five-star gym ($50 usd) or have a relaxing full-body massage ($4 usd).

Every night you can choose a different restaurant to dine in, from Vietnamese cuisine to one of the largest selections of international fare in Asia. If you enjoy a drink in the evening, there are plenty of bars, clubs and breweries to choose from. All of this is at a fraction of the cost of back home.

Vietnam has an extensive coastline which means the beach is never far away and opportunities for diving, surfing and other beach activities are extensive. Vietnam is also home to two World Heritage sights, Ha Long Bay and Hoi An. The Central Highlands are famous for their cool mountainous climate, numerous minority groups, and spectacular waterfalls. Furthermore, travel throughout Asia is easy; the number of reliable and inexpensive flight carriers means that there’s no shortage of choice of exciting, exotic, regional destinations, all just a few hours away.
