Summer / Where We Work / Vietnam

There is an ever-growing need for more English education in Vietnam.


At the invitation of the government and universities in Vietnam, ELIC teachers continue to enjoy positions of influence in their classes, campuses, and neighborhoods. We find that our students in Vietnam are eager to learn English and excited to be our friends and introduce us to their culture and country.

Be a part of impacting the next generation of Vietnamese students by teaching them conversational English and building intentional relationships. Play a personal role in shaping the future of these students in a country that’s changing in front of your eyes!



When you come to Vietnam, you and your team will spend the first week in a cultural exchange program with students. During this week you will have the opportunity to share about your culture, learn about their culture, build relationships, and participate in sightseeing activities. The following weeks will be spent in a provincial town teaching English to high school students who have much less access to English language learning—especially from a foreign teacher. Evenings are spent primarily with your team. Not only will you need the time to plan for the next day, but you’ll also enjoy a time of intentional community, fellowship, and reflection.


June 16 – July 19
Orientation & Debrief will take place in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
