WHY MANY TEACHERS LOVE WORKING AND LIVING IN DANANG:
Danang is quickly becoming the destination of choice for tourists, expats, and locals alike. It’s one of the fastest growing cities in Vietnam, and it manages to mix the feel of a lazy beach town with a quickly growing, modern city. Within the last few years, Danang has experienced an explosion of growth, opening many Western-style shopping malls, restaurants, resorts, and other entertainment venues.
However, it still manages to stay true to the Vietnamese culture with its slower pace of life and ease of access to beautiful secluded beaches, mountains, rivers, and natural resources. You can have opportunities to escape the city life and explore the pristine natural beauty of Vietnam within a 20-minute drive.
Danang’s central location also allows many travel opportunities all over Vietnam and South-East Asia, with the centrality and easy accessibility of Danang’s International Airport. So whether you prefer the excitement of the city or the seclusion of nature, Danang is a wonderful place to live.

About Danang – The most talked about place in Vietnam at the moment
“My name is Bronwyn. I am from South Africa and have called Da Nang, Vietnam my home since May 2016. I studied a Bachelor’s Degree in English and Education as well as a Postgraduate Certificate in Early Childhood Education (specializing in learners from birth to 9 years old). I am also TEFL certified.
I have been working at Fisher's since July 2016 and I am so happy to have found an English Centre that has a deep love and care for the students and their growth. Fisher's SuperKids is more than an English Center, it is like a specialized school environment. Moving from South Africa this was the most important aspect for me when applying to schools. Due to the great environment, my passion for teaching and love for the learners continues to grow daily. I love the structure and support which Fisher’s provides to all Teachers. The Academic team assists each teacher with the material, ideas and classroom management. The constant support and professionalism make Fisher’s a dream job for any person who has a teacher’s heart."
