I did this course because rather than study online for a TESOL certificate, I thought it would be useful to have some hands-on training before I began teaching English in Vietnam.
I was happy with the accommodation provided and enjoyed most of the classes. I learned some teaching methods that I've continued to implement during my 3 years teaching in Vietnam. I look back on the time spent doing this course fondly. It was a great classroom environment. And I made some friends that I'm still in touch with today. Most of which have also continued teaching in Vietnam. The staff were friendly and helpful. I've taught in many centers in Vietnam now and witnessed some very dodgy practices taking place. AVSE does infact provide what they claim to provide. In my opinion anyone who wants to begin teaching in Vietnam with a good basic understanding of how things work here should take this course. And enjoy the experience!

I am a US parent whose 20 year old daughter decided to go half way across the globe to attend this school. Needless to say my wife and I were very nervous. Well we were blown away by the staff. We lost communication with our daughter (her phone was lost) and we were freaking out. A quick email to Peter the Director and within minutes he was on it and in short time we received word that she was fine. There were many other instances where they bent over backwards to help her. They took such great care of her it was like she was staying with family. I also know she felt the same and had an amazing learning experience. Do not hesitate to attend this fine school that really cares.
A learning experience with a splash of fun

I enjoyed my time with AVSE, it is quite an intense course but I feel that it definitely gave me the confidence to walk into a class room and teach. They gave me the foundation I needed and I have had fun and loved meeting people from all over the world that are like minded.
The most invigorating, productive certificate course I have ever done!

My experience at Australia-Vietnam Skills & Education, HCMC, Vietnam (AVSE) was absolutely fantastic. Instructor David Chalker is world class! Very interesting, knowledgeable teacher. The teaching methods, if absorbed, ensure you exit being a qualified beginner instructor. Mr. Goudge has expanded from HCMC into Hanoi, and now into Cambodia. The test teacher classes we did were the best method of introducing a new English teacher to the classroom with young learners. In closing, my classmates were a group of fine individuals from AUS down under, USA yanks like myself, Portugal, and the U.K.

Arriving in Vietnam might be a big culture shock, but I can definitely say that taking the TESOL course through AVSE has been an excellent experience and allows one to adapt fairly easily. The teachers are very professional and the school tries their up-most best to make your stay and course as memorable as possible. I have met some great people from all corners of the world while doing the course and will highly recommend the course to individuals wanting to try something different.
