I used to attend Vietnamese Language Club from this site that gathers in district 1 near Ben Thanh market until Jan of 2016 from Sept. of 2015.
It meets on Sunday eveinging for about 2 hours weekly.

I highly recommend it since it is free, Vietnamese vounteers are really committed, and you can improve your Vietnames as well as make good international friends.


I'm Jenny,I'm Vietnamese . I have been teaching English for 6 years .I know how to help you learning another language because my teaching experience. I can help you sometimes on skype in our free time.It is all free!! If you're interested I'll help you as well as any foreigners who wanna learn Vietnamese in my free time on skype. :)

Didn't any of you notice that freelan4035 has a profile that says she is a Vietnamese citizen?  You can click on the avatar.  Her/his grammar betrays this as well, but that may not pop up immediately for Vietnamese respondents.  Some posts have been modified and others have been allowed to list names of schools.  The whole thing is a little bizarre.  I think everyone has been spoofed.


I agree it's a little strange. However,  I know several Vietnamese citizens that speak less Vietnamese than I do. So, it's entirely possible, but less probable.

I read and write eight languages, though only one of them is human. Someday I may actually lean to speak Vietnamese, but for now I get along very well with Vietnamese speakers.

I have found that Not speaking Vietnamese has some great advantage; I don't have to pay attention to most conversations. I have managed to understand my wife and teach her English.

Sorry to hijack your thread Kim
I am also looking for a private tutor to teach me some basic Vietnamese.
I am British and have zero VN language ability (apart from asking for a Banh Mih with egg).
If anyone feels up to the job, please send me a private message.
I live in D3 but would be happy to meet in a cafe for tuition.


There are many places where you can learn Vietnamese is Ho Chi Minh City University of Social Sciences and Humanities. Or a private tutor.

Thanks. I just wanted something pretty informal, like a private tutor once a week for an hour. I haven't got time to enrol on a University course

Did you try searching the classified "Jobs" section? Choose Language Teacher, Ho Chi Minh City.  Then repeat search for city = Saigon.
( still maintains these as 2 different cities which makes searching a hassle.)
If nothing matches your requirements, you can post your needs there. In both places of course!
There are also Facebook groups for Saigon/HCM.

Two ways: pay for private tutor or find an language exchange

After you learn with your teacher, if you want to practice, you can contact to me. I want to be a friend.
