Our Hanoi package offers the following:
We can find jobs both before you arrive in Hanoi and when you’re in Hanoi. We ask you a range of questions about your teaching style and preferences. Then we consult our large database of schools and teaching agencies to find out where we think you’ll be best suited. If there are none available we will search through various other sources to find you a job that we think you’ll love! Whilst we can’t guarantee jobs for absolutely everyone that applies, we’ve never had a paying teacher yet who we haven’t found employment for. We guarantee an absolute minimum of 4 promising interviews arranged by us or your money back. But in reality you can expect a lot more than that. If you’re unhappy in your job, we will strive to find you a new one. If you would like more hours we will try and find them for you. We pride ourselves on being a very personal service.
The motorbike is by far the number one method of transport in Vietnam, and life is infinitely easier once you have one. You will receive the details and a special TFV discount of a reliable, trustworthy mechanic who speaks fluent English. As well as selling motorbikes they can teach you how to ride them, and equip you with any other equipment that you might need – helmets, maps, driving rain coats. As well as the discount they will offer one month’s free warranty.
We know the neighbourhoods very well, we also know how far your money can go. After speaking to you, we’ll recommend you a few neighbourhoods that we think you’ll like. Then we’ll find out what sort of property we think you’ll want and contact a range of different estate agents we have in our network. Once they have sent us details of all properties in your price range and neighbourhood that meet your demands, we will remove any that we think you one be interested in and provide you with a shortlist of the best properties offering good value for money. If you’d like to live with others, we can arrange that too!
Meet and Greet /Tour of the City
To welcome you to the city, we’ll come and meet you for a friendly drink and then give you a personal city tour to wherever you want to go, or wherever we think you’ll like! Learn the secrets of the city early!
Vietnamese people love a chance to practice English and meet foreign people. We will match-make you to a friendly Vietnamese person that you have similar interests to or that we think you’ll get along with. After arranging the first lesson in a nice café, it will be up to the two of you to arrange how you would like to organize the lessons. Formally or informally, it’s all up to you. Whilst the purpose is technically to exchange languages, it’s a fantastic way to become more immersed in Vietnamese culture and make friends.
