The AVSE course in Ho Chi Minh city more then met my expectations. The accommodations that they provided were comfortable. The guest house owner was kind and helpful. The staff at AVSE were always able and willing to answer questions help with anything that came up.
The teacher in the course was amazingly helpful and when he taught he taught in the exact way that he would expect from us when we would be teaching. The in class room practice classes were incredibly helpful.
AVSE helped me find a job quickly and I started teaching the day after the course was finish. The classmates I had are now fellow teachers as well. I honestly look forward to living and teaching in Ho Chi Minh city.

I came across this institute while doing my online research for TEFL courses in Vietnam. I contacted several institutes in Vietnam and I can easily say that AVSE-TESOL ticked lots of boxes straight away. Sj and Peter were incredibly helpful and also very efficient. Pricing is reasonable and you have various options of payments.
I highly recommend this institute because the employees of this place are not just there to do their daily job but they are always ready to go above and beyond to help you succeed throughout this exciting journey.

If you are reading this questioning as to whether or not you should apply or take the chance. The answer is that you should.
It has taken me far too long to write this review. I had done the program in the summer of 2019 before I had graduated college. Little did I know what was around the corner for me in the coming year.
I am finally using my certification, and I am so happy I pursued it; not only did it help me obtain a job during COVID. In an uncertain world, this certification program is certain.
Mr. Smith was my teacher for the program; he was honest and thorough. He taught us what we needed to know and what he thought was vital for us to be good teachers.
His students are his priority which gave us an outstanding view of what a good teacher should be.
Next, outside of the classroom changes the whole game. I learned more than I would ever sitting in a classroom theorizing the idea of teaching. Setting foot in my first class was terrifying and went horrible. I learned mountains, but kindergarten is a beast. The kids had no idea what I was saying and only understood pictures. One consistent word the kids used was ‘Ball There was a blue ball that worked like a talking stick; I figured that out at the ‘end’ of the class.
About your second or third class, things start to come together.
Slowly but surely.
Review 91 of 94 AVSE-TESOL
I thoroughly enjoyed my teacher training at AVSE. The course provided everything I could have needed to help me go from a Vietnam tourist to a qualified and confident teacher.
AVSE gave me all the necessary tools, knowledge and guidance to not only help me to become as good a teacher as possible, but also helped provide all the assistance needed to help with all the difficulties that comes from arriving and living in a new country.
I couldn’t imagine doing a quick online course instead of the full-training AVSE provided, and I am so thankful I took this option.
The course is hard-work but it’s more than worth it if you are serious about becoming a good teacher and living and teaching abroad for however long you plan.
Thank you again to all those who helped and assisted me, as without your help I wouldn’t be where I am now!
