Hi everyone.

The first point I have to make is that I will not be able to arrive in Vietnam anytime before September. How is that going to affect my getting a job here?

Secondly, I am hoping to just teach kids in either public schools or commercial schools. Who should I apply to for this kind of work? I have 11 years experience teaching kids and teens in Asia and Europe but little experience with adults.

British national, 35 years old if that helps.

Any thoughts?

What qualifications do you hold (i.e., degree, TEFL cert, PGCE...)?

I'm currently trying to get enough money and time together to get quals. In terms of general qualifications I have a non-education based undergraduate degree.

Just get a cheap 120 hour online TEFL.

Come here and look for work.

If you can not find work (doubtful) AND you decided you want to live in VN for more than a year AND you want to teach ESL for more than 2 years then get a CELTA.

My advice anyways

You will late to the game and fighting for leftovers with all the other late arrivals. Not sure why, but it seems a lot of foreigners want to show up in September and then look for work. But it is already almost August and hiring is in full swing on the ground in VN. If you want to pick and choose, now is the time not in September. But I guess you will find something, most people do.
