  • a TEFL certificate or any other certificate that resembles this one, or a degree from university or college.

Teaching English in Thai Binh: info & requirements

We teach at a variety of schools ranging from kindergarten to high school. This requires our volunteers to be or become comfortable in teaching children of ages of 2 – 17. Volunteers are not required to teach any grammar, this is done by the Vietnamese teachers that are either employed at state schools or our own teachers in the New World teaching centre.

The goal of volunteer work is to help students with vocabulary and putting emphasis on pronunciation. Much of the preparing of classes is already done beforehand by the Vietnamese teachers themselves however, volunteers include their own planning of grammar if they have the capacity and skill to do so. From the ages 2 – 8 flashcards are prepared for each class based on the topic of the month (prepared by the teaching staff at New World). Furthermore, for students of ages between 9 – 17, lesson plans are prepared with given topics and goals of the class. Much of the preparing you will do as volunteers involve how the classes will be taught. We have prepared a guideline on different methods current and previous volunteers have used for their classes.


Usually, we get up at around 7-8 and sometimes earlier depending on the start of your shift. Early morning classes require you to wake up early since we have to travel outside of Thai Binh to the state schools. Duration of travelling is normally around 1:30h (going and coming back). Early morning shifts are usually around 1-2 days per week, for the larger part of your stay your shift will start between 12:00-14:00 pm and finish at around 7-9 pm depending on how many classes you have. And you don’t teach the whole day, you have 2-3 hour breaks in between. The maximum amount of classes you will be teaching in a day are around 6 classes each accounting to 30 – 45 min per class.

Furthermore, classes in kindergarten are 4 classes of 30 minutes and when your teaching in state schools you usually teach around 3 classes of 45 min. However, state school classes are only given to older volunteers, so most of you will just be teaching kindergarten and kids.

We also teach classes at the different New World schools where we tend to have classes starting at around 17:00-17:30 up to 21:00. 21:00 is the end time of the last classes of the day, we are the closing time for the centre. In a day volunteers will spend max 5 hours a day teaching (excluding travel). note that you won’t be travelling every day, only to state schools 1-2 times per week.

We provide food twice a day every day. Lunch is served around 11:00 am and dinner around 6:30 pm every day. The menu is always Vietnamese (meat and vegetarian) dishes, but if you like you can also cook some food for yourself as some volunteers choose to do. If you’re a vegetarian, food will be prepared for you as well just let us know beforehand so that the cook takes you into consideration. Food is for the most part eaten together, in the main house (the main school) we eat together and we also clean up together. Sometimes volunteers choose to eat out or eat with the families of their students, this is completely fine, but it is very much appreciated if you let the staff know that you are not going to partake in the meals so that food spillage can be avoided.
