English Language Schools



m2r Education are recruiting ESL teachers to work with the largest language provider in Vietnam.

This language provider in Vietnam has more than 50 Language centres located in 15 towns and cities across the country, plus public school programmes in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. They have more than 20 years’ experience in providing English training and a strong emphasis on academic quality and service to students.

There are also positions available at an affiliate company that has an emphasis on decreased course fees to expand English educational services to a larger demographic of students. The wages, benefits and schedules will be the same, with the primary difference being that you would share half of the course with an experience and qualified Vietnamese teacher, with 2-hour lessons being split 1 hour taught by you, and the other hour taught by a Vietnamese teacher. This gives you the opportunity for collaboration and teamwork!

There will be an opportunity to teach all ages, but a focus put on Young Learners (age 3-17).
