Come work in Vietnam at ILA!
Whether you are a career-minded ELT professional or looking to take a break from your current career, you will find few opportunities to match those offered by ILA Vietnam.
Why choose Vietnam?
Few countries can offer EFL teachers a lifestyle that compares to Vietnam and an opportunity for teachers to immerse themselves in a truly diverse culture. The people are warm and hospitable and encourage you to enjoy the undeniable richness of their country. Additionally, teaching in Vietnam is made extremely positive by the Vietnamese appreciation of learning and the profound respect they have for teachers.
The cost of living is low, which means you can enjoy a fantastic standard of living yet still save money. The choice of lifestyle opportunities is 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 a wealth of natural treasures and traditional charms, made easily accessible by the reliable and inexpensive travel options. Follow Vietnam’s extensive coastline or explore its scenic mountain ranges; choose from large, chaotic and modern cities to tranquil, picturesque villages. 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.
