Explore Vietnam

Have you always dreamed of going to Vietnam? Home to 30 national parks, three World Heritage sites and nearly 2,000 miles of coastline, Vietnam’s tropical climate and delicious cuisine make the country an attractive place to spend a couple of months teaching English. Its capital city of Hanoi is a fascinating metropolis that exudes history while allowing you to experience the hustle and bustle of contemporary Southeast Asian urban life.

CHI works with our trusted partner in Hanoi, Vietnam to find and screen the best host families possible for you to live with. Our partner agency is also able to place volunteers in local elementary schools as English teachers. This is an amazing opportunity to gain hands-on classroom experience abroad. If you are studying to be a teacher, we can contact your university to see if you are eligible to receive college credit for your teaching efforts. Sometimes, dorm-style accommodations are available instead of homestays if that better suits your needs.

Our partner agency also offers local support during your stay. They will connect you with other international teachers in Vietnam when possible. They can also help you sign up for affordable Vietnamese language classes if desired.

Cost Calculator

We understand that keeping the World Explorers cost down is as important as the life-changing experience you will enjoy. Hence, we prepared a cost calculator which shows the cost of the program (excluding airfare) compared to the cost of a standard vacation. The prices are calculated according to the destination chosen, the arrival and departure dates, and the length of your stay. The length of your stay is an especially important factor: the longer you stay abroad, the cheaper the cost per day becomes.

CHI is a non-profit organization, but we still have fixed costs that are necessary for running the program. Our overseas partners are actually for-profit, and we must take that into consideration as well. Our partners do the work to find and screen excellent host families that match your interests and needs!
