What You Need
Our schools prefer that you only speak English in class, so you don’t need to learn Vietnamese (Tiếng Việt) before you depart. While some schools may like it if you have previous teaching experience, it is not mandatory. Most of the teaching jobs require a bachelor’s degree in any subject, but there are limited schools who do accept native speakers without a degree. TTI can help you through an easy application process to obtain the Visa, TEFL or TESOL certificate. Once the paperwork is complete, we will help to place you in a school in one of your preferred cities.
