AVSE-TESOL is a family owned business with a real Australian connection. Our ‘home base’ is Go Vap District in Ho Chi Minh City, which is located 25 minutes by taxi from the downtown area. We employ more than 20 people – Vietnamese, foreigners and a couple of others who are trying to work out where they fit in given their passion for this truly wonderful part of the world.

The owners, instructors and staff at AVSE-TESOL are dedicated to delivering high-quality educational services, which exceed the expectations of the TESOL in Vietnam trainees and partner organisations we serve. Working collaboratively with local and foreign partners, our company is a leader in Southeast Asia’s booming education and training sectors. Over the past 5 years alone, more than 2000 people from the 4 corners of the world have completed our Australian Government accredited TESOL TEFL programme in Ho Chi Minh City and embarked upon a rewarding career as an English as a Second Language (ESL) educator.

It’s about teaching skills and knowledge

Our TESOL in Vietnam programme is all about providing job related, skills, knowledge and internationally recognised certification for aspiring English language teachers of all ages and backgrounds including people who are not native English speakers. Around 30% of people who enrol in our TESOL in Vietnam course in Ho Chi Minh City have English as a 2nd or 3rd language.

The TESOL in Vietnam course at AVSE-TESOL gives an in-depth understanding of how to teach English as a second language. It also provides an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of local people while earning a decent income. Our 4-week TESOL TEFL programme in Ho Chi Minh City exceeds standards set by the British Council and is equivalent to CELTA.

You will find graduates of our TESOL in Vietnam programme teaching English as a second language in schools and language centres the length and breadth of Vietnam and in other parts of the world. In addition to being a graduate of our TESOL in Vietnam course, these wonderful people have other things in common that are so important in a professional work environment – they have the skills, knowledge and hands-on experience to do the job.  How did this occur? They invested in quality training that’s Australian Government accredited, internationally recognised, involves face-to-face instruction in a real school environment and has a substantial practical component – doubling known competitors.

Interestingly, more than 40% of people who graduate from our TESOL in Vietnam programme were referred to our company by someone who previously completed the TESOL course. While the high number of referrals from alumni and substantial growth over the past 5 years suggests we’re on the right path, AVSE-TESOL is mindful of the link between continuous improvement and future success.
