"I recently completed the Ninja Teacher course and highly recommend it to those considering teaching in Vietnam.
I was working a 9-5 job in my home country and was craving a new adventure. Having been to Vietnam before, I thought this would be a great place to start the adventure.
The course is a perfect way to prepare for an English teaching career and offers a great introduction to Vietnam. You're provided with a ready-made group of friends, which makes the adjustment period a whole lot easier.
I found a full-time teaching position shortly after completion of the course, and teach young learners and teenagers in a friendly and supportive setting. I'm glad I found Ninja Teaching and would recommend the course to anyone!"
Brian talks about getting a job after the course and private tutoring.
Kevin D took our course in Vietnam and gave it an 11/10!

"I loved taking the course in Ho Chi Minh City! It was great getting to meet so many people who were just starting out like me. The folks from Ninja Teacher were very helpful in setting me up to work in such a beautiful country. I was grateful I took the course, and I would recommend it to those who are looking to experience something new! I love teaching, and I would recommend the course to anyone in pursuit of a teaching job in Vietnam. I felt that I was helped out lots with every aspect of taking the course, and living in HCMC." -Brady Scott, USA (June 2017 course)
"I have always played live music, but when I decided to do it full time after I finished my commerce degree it started to feel too much like a job. I decided I needed a change of scenery and I wasn’t (and I am still not) ready for the corporate world. I have some basic teaching experience, so I was researching TESOL in SE Asia and found Alex’s videos – he made me feel so at ease about the decision and Vietnam looked like just the place for me. So, in February 2017 my girlfriend and I decided to enroll in the June course offered by Ninja Teacher. We left Cape Town on 19 May and spent two weeks in Thailand before heading to Ho Chi Minh City!
The course was a ton of fun. We met an amazing group of people who we still see regularly since we finished our course, and the ongoing support from the school is incredible. Within two weeks of finishing we found great jobs; the school arranged an interview for us, and we arranged a couple of our own. Otherwise, we received so much inside information on how the market and system works in Vietnam, along with daily networking and teaching practices that filled us with confidence to go into the TESOL workforce.
I am teaching predominantly children and teens, ranging from ages 5-7 to 14-17, with as few as 11 students in one class and never more than 22 students. My wage is a dreamy $19/hr (far better than I’d be being paid at home) and I am working roughly 80hrs-100hrs per month. Living expenses are very low and after we have put some extra furniture in our awesome new apartment I’ll be able to save 50% or more of my salary without even tightening the belt.
Most importantly, I have fallen in love with Vietnam and the people who live here. They are kind and helpful and want you to be happy here. The pollution levels took a bit of getting used to, but an air purifier at home and a pollution mask when I’m riding the scooter helps a lot.
I would suggest to anyone who is looking to spice up their lives to look into teaching English in SE Asia and contacting Ninja Teacher. It allows you to create opportunities, change the lives of people you have never met, all the while giving you the opportunity to experience a new life and save some cash."
I completed the TESOL course in HCMC during the month of June 2017. Ninja Teacher , through their excellent videos , made my transition to life in HCMC , seamless. The TESOL course adequately prepared me for the ESL market. Ninja Teacher , during the duration of the course, kept in weekly contact with all their students . Alex and Kyle organised regular get togethers. I am delighted that I got employed by one of the "big" schools in VN , within 8 days of completing the course. Ninja Teacher followed through on their guarantees! I would strongly recommend Ninja Teacher to any person considering entering the ESL market. It's a decision that one will not regret making.
