There are no government teaching programs that set up English teachers in the public school system. Instead, language center jobs are much more likely in Vietnam. Because there is a big push for young learners to pick up English, this is the main ways for language conversation classes.

The average monthly salary in Vietnam is in the range of $1,200-1,800 USD (35,000,000 VND). This is more than enough to live comfortably because the cost of living is low in Vietnam. Depending on your employer, you may work 15-18 teaching hours per week. If you work in a public school, you have a summer holiday for vacation.
