What teachers say

Life in Vietnam

“Working where others go on holidays.” All year round, the south of the country is pampered with temperatures of 25 to 35 degree Celsius. Endless beaches, dreamlike islands, mountains with coffee plantations, and miles of rivers define the landscapes outside the pulsating metropolis Ho Chi Minh City. The country’s economic boom is particularly noticeable in the major cities. Despite the momentum of the upturn, the cost of living remains below the European average.
