Browsing the forum as suggested by Stumpy will prove helpful, as there are many threads talking about same.


You have a any plan in vietnam? You Should be check first contact person who have a plenty of experience about that. Then make a decision.

In VN you don't need permit to work if you want to teach English. You can search location to recruit  on facebook  or google


Please do not give false information to members. As an expat you do need a work permit and relevant correct paperwork to work in Vietnam.

Im looking for a teacher .

Do you available about 2 - 4 p.m on the weekend ?

Hello Nicole!

I am actually looking for entry-level sales people to join my team.  It could be a great opportunity if you're interested.  Otherwise, the job market is pretty slim unless you have your TEFL or TOEFL certificate and want to teach.

Let me know if you're interested!


Ps. I posted the JD on expat.com (below)

Hi Nicole, I'm a Vietnamese-New Zealander and I was in the same situation as you 9 months ago. I'm now settled down with an English teaching job. If you need some help setting up, message me.

where are you from
what language can you teach ?

If you are asking the OP, Ms Nicolealex21, you can simply click on her avatar circle and see that she lives in the US and presumably is a native English speaker.  Easy, no?

Good advice by all for all
Really enjoying this forum

Whoa, these are heavy questions!

A WP costs what, 20 million? Surely, employers will want to see candicates lasting through the probationary periuod.

I found lots of liars who claim to want foreign teachers, only to get a "free ride". Or they promise outlandish things, then not keep the promises. Be careful. Go sign a contract.
