    Overview icon

    Overview

    You will be playing the role of a mentor inside the Bach Viet College (Nursing and Business Administration being the main majors of this school).This is often in the form of re-enactments, real-life scenes and communication. Your advanced level English or Native Speaker level will be just what your peers need to move their language skills forward.

    Each class runs a total of 2 hours and will be led by a head participant mentor (everyone will get a chance to lead the lesson). During each session, the lead mentor will spend 30 minutes at the beginning of every class reviewing old lessons and previewing the lesson of the day. Thereafter, students will be divided into small groups, whereby each participant will mentor 1 group.

    In order for this to be successful, you will be required to prepare a teaching plan using the teaching manual provided in collaboration with other participants.

    You will regularly attend the classes and have maximum interaction with the students throughout the day. You will be able to spend your free time during the evenings and weekends with the friends you make throughout your stay.

    The students here are always keen to improve their English, and they welcome foreigners into their culture and are eager to show you their way of life!

    Objectives

    • Offer education in the tourism and leisure industry for Vietnamese students
    • Make new friends and contacts in Vietnam
    • Experience peer-to-peer English language learning and cultural exchange
