All the students were incredibly enthusiastic about learning English. The fellow volunteers have become friends for life. The apartment is in an incredible area, everything is easily accessible
The students attending are very eager to learn and very helpful if you need to know anything during your stay.Its the best thing I have ever done while holidaying.
I definitely recommend this program to anyone serious about teaching and helping the community. Truly an experience I will never forget.
I had the time of my life teaching here and can only wish to return one day. The students were the absolute best
I worked at VCV for just under a month and I had such a fantastic time! It was the highlight of my whole trip.
I was so sad to leave and I will always remember my time with VCV and I am so grateful for everything Miss Hay did throughout my stay to make it a really unforgettable experience.
Delicious food and enough free time to explore Hanoi and thereabouts. I will definitely come back one day! :*
The school is a rather nice five minute walk as you walk the streets of the village. Being a Westerner, you will get many smiles and "hello's" from the locals.
This was my first workaway experience and like many others have stated previously Ms. Hay makes you feel at home immediately.
The students are friendly and really impressed me with their exisiting knowledge of English. There was plenty of time before and after teaching to explore the city. Additionally, the food was delicious and the apartment in Hanoi is a great size.
I cannot say a bad word about this program, don't think, help this awesome community, you won't want to leave!
I spent an unforgettable month in this community, and I couldn't have asked for a better way to get to know Vietnam.
If you're looking for the perfect opportunity to live in Hanoi, meet people, and get to know Vietnamese culture - this is the place for you
They made me feel incredibly welcome. The apartment that's provided for volunteers is spacious, clean and comfortable, and the food prepared by Ms. Hay and Hang was consistently delicious!
I am so glad I had this experience, I will never forget Mrs. Hay, Hang, and the other volunteers I met or the students we befriended.
The apartment is close to everything you need, walking distance to the gym, across from a large mall and movie theater, and there is a shop to buy anything you need right downstairs!
I spent 3 and a half months here. It was a superb experience and I've made some life long friends along the way. I'm still in Hanoi and regularly visit, it's like my second home ;) The family.
All around this is a great experience if you're interested in getting away from the tourist trail and meeting people who actually live here while having a great time along the way!
We are really happy of our time in Hanoi, thank you very much Ms. Hay for your kindness and for taking care of us and thanks to everyone for this amazing opportunity to discover your beautiful city and also to realize how much we loved to teach.
5 stars - A great way to experience and explore Hanoi * Genuine teaching opportunities * Social outings with the English students * Excellent hospitality from our Host - Ms Hay
It was my first teaching experience. I was nervous and didn't really know what to do from the beginning, as you can imagine. But thanks a huge help from Ms Hay and other amazing volunteers, I managed to get into a teacher role 'easily'.
I couldn't have lived with a nicer set of people. I will definitely miss them even the high pitched good mornings and werid youtube mixes
it has been one of the highlights of my travels. I learned so much from the other volunteers and my teaching grew immensely.
There is always friendly people coming and going, staying after classes, having dinner and lunch together as a family.
i would recommend vcv to any traveller considering coming to hanoi and wish all the best for vcv in the future
the organisation is growing and i know they are looking for a bigger base of operations because of it.
