    About Hanoi – things to do and see

    Hanoi, the second largest city in Vietnam, is a special city with a unique feel. Known as “Little Paris of the East,” Hanoi retains its charm and romance from the influences of French-Indochina. French-influenced architecture and avenues are juxtaposed with traditional Vietnamese culture filling its streets. Hanoi is the capital city of Vietnam but has a more relaxed atmosphere than its larger southern counterpart of Ho Chi Minh City. There are countless things to do in Hanoi such as eating street food, enjoying a Vietnamese coffee, and jogging and exercising around Hoan Kiem Lake in the center of the city.

    While Hanoi is characterized by a warm humid subtropical climate, it still experiences four distinct seasons.

    • Summer: May – August – Humid climate with abundant rainfall, commonly referred to as “monsoon season.”
    • Autumn: September – November: Humid climate with decreased precipitation
    • Winter: December – February – Cloudy and foggy days
    • Spring: March – April – Warm, clear spring weather. Most popular time for tourism

    The TEFL Course is centrally located, close to Hanoi’s famous “Old Quarter.” The Ba Dinh District is a bustling area of residential apartments and small businesses. Our TEFL candidates will feel comfortable walking around for all their comforts including Western and Vietnamese restaurants, grocery shopping, and bars.

      What course alumni have to say

      Thank you for your wonderful guidelines on how to teach children English. I learned a great deal about all of the important fundamentals. I feel very prepared to teach English to a variety of types of learners. I feel confident in being able to help others to progress in learning English as I have progressed in learning to teach English. I would recommend this program to anyone interested in being a good TEFL teacher in another country or in your own respective country for that matter. Thank you!


      The experience was unique because it was something I’d never done before and I wasn’t too sure what I was getting myself into! Therefore this was a good opportunity to learn something new and see if it was for me. 


      The course was very informative, inspiring and insightful. It stimulated my intellect and shaped my role as an educator. I now have knowledge about classroom management. I gained vast knowledge about learning theories and how to incorporate the elements from different theories into my lesson plan.
