Idea about English club, Need expats help

I would like to open a club In Hochiminh for student/staff office or anyone from any country want to improve english.
I would like to find some expats can help me and help people in vietnam could talk by english better, expats from every country.
I would like to looking around 6-8 people could help me to orgainze this club and a lot of expats as tutor from everywhere.
I work by my heart and don't want to earn money from this group but I still arrange some cost for expats join my club. The cost is mean your salary (but that's small; important we work by our heart)
So, Would you please message or email to me if you want to join and help me?
You can join as tutor or member of orgainze.

From my experience; club in other only got 1-3 expats, can't handle and talk for all of member in club. Addition, they scare to talk and try to keep silent. In my way, I will set up 1 team have 3 people and have 10 team in group (1 tutor and 2 members for a team) We have activities and game to help all of members must say english. Believe by my way, around 1-2 years, They can speak and listen english very well and don't use much money. Addition, for each session, we will talk about career, life, culture, not just for fun, we spent time useful and have more the knowledge.

Thank you so much
Kerry

Don't they have something like this going on once a month already? What you're proposing is someone to take their time of in their daily life just to meet up with a complete stranger(s) and talk about random things? Why can't people do this on their own? I mean if you want to socialize just freaking step up to someone and start a conversation. Why does it have to be chaperone in a group? No body has time for that.

Hi Kerry,
you have a good idea, how can i join this club ?

Hi, Kerry,

I'd like to help you but I don't live in Saigon.  I only visit about 4 months a year. That being said, I'd like to meet with you in August while I'm in Saigon and see how I can help.

I worked for a magazine in the the US as Technical Director and Editor and I know English rather well. I am currently teaching my wife English though I speak no Vietnamese.

While in the military I had no issues with communicating with Vietnamese, South Koreans, Cambodians or Germans.

PM me and we will discuss.

Gary.

In Vietnam there is nothing if not time

Hi Kerry

I support for your ideal. I would like to join to improve my English. How can I join the club? Thanks

I'd really like to help. But, this would put me away from my wife's bedside for at least 3-4 hours on a regular basis. Remind me in a couple of months. I'll have a lot better idea about how stable her condition is then.

Actually its quite common, there are numerous clubs like this, but not enough for the amount of students who want to practice their speaking and listening skills.
