5 Reasons to Teach English in Vietnam (In Under 60 Seconds)

I first moved to Vietnam to teach English in 2016. I fell in love with the country after a backpacking trip in 2014, and I had to return.

I moved to the capital of Vietnam,Hanoi. It was an incredible experience that I will always cherish.

Now, in 2020, I am back in Vietnam, now in Ho Chi Minh as an online ESL teacher.

Falling in love with the country once again, I am inspired to tell you some reasons why you should relocate to Vietnam

So…Here are 5 reasons why you should be an English teacher in Vietnam!
