Teach English in Vietnam

Teach English in Vietnam with Cosmic Volunteers at a government school or group home. Our volunteers teach conversational English to students as young as 5 years and seniors 65+. You can teach in Ho Chi Minh City in south Vietnam or in Da Nang in the central part of the country. 

The group homes provide free education and services like health care, counseling, social support, and reuniting families. In addition to teaching English, you will be a caring presence for the children and seniors. Our local staff can help provide you with lesson plans and materials. You are more than welcome to bring your own lessons plans and ideas to the classroom. Previous teaching experience is not required.
