Everyone who is successful in completing the course is offered a guaranteed teaching placement at a local school.

This is a great amount of money compared to the cost of living in both countries. You will be able to dine out, party and save some cash on the side for your travels! Initial contracts are usually around 6-10 months in length and you are able to negotiate different aspects of the contract with the help from our team in your city. If you'd prefer to have some time to travel around before starting your placement, it is of course ok to do so! You can keep in touch with our team in Vietnam or Cambodia and contact them when you are ready to start working.


Stop 🛑 what you are doing, and head to

Your accommodation is covered through out the course and is included in the course fee! In each city you can expect to stay in either of these places: a local hotel, a local guest house or a residential property owned by our partners. You can of course have a preference of which type of accommodation you stay in, but it will be subject to availability. Many applicants often sign up with a partner/friend, if this is the case for you, you can request to stay together in a property. Partnering up may also reduce your final course fee! Like anywhere in Asia the accommodation is basic and clean with Wifi and air-conditioning, we have attached a link so you can see the standard of place you'll be living in for the 4 weeks.

Vietnam truly offers something for everyone. From picturesque sun-soaked beaches and mountains to hyperactive cities and characterful rural towns. Getting around is easy and affordable, as flights connect the most popular spots, while buses and trains link the rest. However, the motorbike is king here, and those willing to jump on two wheels will be spoiled for choice of where to go and what to see. One of the most notable experiences to do in Vietnam is the Ho Chi Minh Trail which is a network of roads built from North to South Vietnam through the neighbouring countries of Laos and Cambodia, this is the perfect chance to explore this wonderful place. As you explore the country, you’ll also be treated to some of the most delicious and diverse cuisine around. Northern, central and southern Vietnam are each home to their own distinct food traditions, and even certain cities within these regions have their own local specialities.


Cambodia is a vast land with a history both challenging and inspiring. The first time you lay your eyes on Angkor Wat will be something that stays with you for a life time. You will experience a new sense of empathy when exploring the countries dark past, from its all too recent genocide at the hands of the Khmer Rouge. The Cambodian spirit is irrepressible and visitors will find welcoming smiles wherever they roam. You will get to explore some wondrous places that nowhere else on the planet has, such as the Mondulkiri Project which is an elephant sanctuary protecting forests and indigenous livelihood. If you head to the southern coastline you'll be able to explore some amazing islands; Koh Rong Sanloem is our number one destination you have to visit! Where the sand is white and the water is aquamarine. For those of you wishing to let your hair down and experience a true party island; head to the wonderful Koh Rong, which has become Cambodia’s go-to spot for travellers looking to experience a Full Moon party!
