Lovely way to learn how to teach and make new friends

I definitely was a bit shell shocked having coming to a totally different country but it made it worth while having an amazing group of people in the same boat as me. Additionally, our course instructor was such a great source of knowledge not only from a teaching sense, but from her many years of teaching experience in Vietnam. She was very approachable if we had any questions and was always able to get us to think more creatively and out of the box. My favorite part of the course was the ability to go to many different English centers and practice teaching to real Vietnamese students. I found that that it was definitely way less scary than I thought it would be, and that it could even be quite fun. I would recommend this course for any person looking for a practical hands on approach to teaching English as well as someone who looking for a great community to help you out during the harder parts of the course.
Excellent experience & highly recommended

AVSE is an employment directed training course. The course provides 150 hours certification in teaching English as a foreign language, a highly regarded qualification in the English teaching industry. The course is a great experience and you are guaranteed to learn useful tips and teaching methods which will be invaluable in your ESL career. If you want to be successful in teaching English as a career I recommend AVSE’s TESOL course. I personally gained a lot from the course and I have seen them turn ZERO into HERO in 4 weeks!
Well worth it

Having done some online research and gotten some favorable feedback on AVSE, I decided to give it a try and jumped in with both feet. With only some conversational English instruction behind me, I wasn't sure how prepared I would be for such an undertaking. I must say, that from the moment you are greeted by the AVSE staff to the final goodbye, you are in for quite an experience. Peter and his trainers are such great people and will go above and beyond what you'd expect from them. Utilizing classroom instruction, role-playing, on the job training, you will find yourself as I did, often out of your comfort zone. But I needed that and I surmise many of you do too. You will be prepared and AVSE will see to it that you are employed as well. So take it from someone who had little idea of what he was getting into. If you are interested in an career not just teaching English, but changing the lives of the learners in front of you, there is no better place to start than AVSE. Yes, definitely well worth it.

It’s hard to believe that two months have gone by since I completed the TESOL program at AVSE in Ho Chi Minh City. As a non-native English speaker (Latvian), securing a teaching job after the TESOL course was always my greatest concern. I was very relieved when I started my first paid teaching job a matter of days after submitting my TESOL assessment tasks. I put this down to factors: 1. AVSE’s brilliant reputation in the marketplace – AVSE graduates are sought after by English language schools of all shapes and sizes; and 2. the knowledge and skills I picked up during the 4-week TESOL program. I am very happy that I chose to invest in the TESOL course at AVSE.

The course was really great. When I started, my teaching confidence was low but once finished the course I had the confidence to teach in all circumstances. I would recommend the course to anyone who wants an extra head start in settling into Vietnamese life. I also made wonderful, like minded friends on the course. 10/10 for sure!
