VI. Material’s Project
The average salary for a TEFL-certified, degree-holding, native English speaker is around $20 USD per hour. This is often higher depending on your experience and qualifications. Most trainees arrive in Hanoi with no prior teaching experience and are able to find a part-time job in a language center within the first days after graduation.
The quality of life for EFL teachers in Vietnam is fantastic! There are two main ways to earn a living as an English teacher in Vietnam: you can sign up for a long-term, full-time contract at one major school or you can take on multiple part-time contracts at several smaller centers. There are opportunities to teach all ages and all levels, from kindergarten to adult, although teaching young learners’ classes are easier to find. A usual full-time position is considered to be around 20 teaching hours per week; however, there are opportunities to take on less, or more, hours depending on your goals and priorities.
Numerous language centers, kindergartens, international schools, agencies and private schools in Vietnam dedicated solely to teaching English. This abundance of opportunity, combined with the all-year-round hiring system creates a very lucrative experience. Moreover, teaching English in Vietnam is a thriving business as the National Foreign Languages Project’s goal is for Vietnam to be bilingual in the next few years.
Most teaching jobs usually provide a steady job, set hours, health insurance, assistance with your work permit, holiday pay and often a tidy bonus upon completion of one-year’s contract. You can expect to earn up to and around $1,500 – $2,000 USD per month in this sort of position. These types of jobs require a 4 week/onsite TEFL TESOL Qualification and will entail applying for a work visa.
After graduation from your TEFL Course in Hanoi, the school at which you accept a teaching position will help you with this visa process. This will often mean signing a minimum contract of a year with that particular school. The more reputable schools and language centers will often cover the cost of your work permit and, while some schools might try and get away with it, it is usually possible to come to an agreement in sharing the cost. In order to obtain a working permit you must have the following:
– Internationally recognized TEFL certificate (original document)
– Health check from an approved hospital (this is very easy and cheap to have done in Vietnam)
– University degree (original document)
– Academic transcript (original document)
– Police clearance check (original document, not more than 6 months old)
Three-month Business Visa
Many people prefer the “no strings attached” lifestyle that is available in Vietnam. It is possible to enter the country on a three-month business visa (which, depending on your nationality, should cost around $90-$130 USD).
With this business visa, you can easily find cash- in-hand work at many of the smaller language centers. This will require you to renew your business visa at the end of every three months (at a similar cost as the initial visa but with no need to leave the country). This option won’t provide you with the benefits of signing up full time with one school, but it will allow you to create your own timetable and working hours. It is fairly common to have multiple jobs of this nature as these centers usually offer contracts of around three or four teaching hours per week. Three or four of these part-time contracts can provide you with enough money to live a fairly comfortable lifestyle. It is possible to survive on as little as 10 hours upwards per week in Vietnam.

How is the Cost of Living in Vietnam?
Living costs are exceptionally inexpensive in Vietnam. A meal at a local food stall (which can be found everywhere) will set you back around $2 USD. This will be for a traditional dish of Pho (noodle soup) or similar. If you want to ‘splash out’ and eat Western food, you can easily go for a nice meal in a restaurant for around $5-7 USD. Local beer is available everywhere in Vietnam and you can get a glass of organically brewed ‘biahoi’ for less than 50 cents. Local markets provide fresh fruit and veggies in abundance. Just be aware that your status as a foreigner will leave you exposed to massive overcharging. You can visit ‘Western-style’ supermarkets where the prices are set, and you can find a good selection of groceries for reasonable value.
How can I set up a bank account?
Opening a bank account in Vietnam is fairly easy and recommended banks are ANZ Bank, Sacom Bank and HSBC. All you usually need is your passport and a Vietnamese address. You will have to fill out lots of forms and the card may only be a cash withdrawal card, making it difficult to transfer money out of the country. There are ways around this and usually your school will be able to help you.
