        “Hi, I`m Anthony Brewer and I’ve known Georgie for about 1 year now. Although it feels as though I have known her for several years like a close friend. Working with her gives me a sense of confidence due to all the knowledge and professionalism she has displayed. She has a positive attitude and is very friendly. I fully understand the process of relocating to Vietnam thanks to her. She is usually upfront and to the point when talking to me regarding schools, the CELTA and TEFL, and how Vietnam`s work permit and employment process work. Honestly, I would not have been able to come to Vietnam without her assistance. Her guidance is the ultimate safety net for people studying to be teachers someday. ” Anthony, US, 10th Sept 2017

“Georgie’s work is so much more than a service. Georgie is truly a friend to the people she works with. When I was browsing through different companies and resources to start my adventure to Vietnam I was overwhelmed by the options. There were lists of endless different companies wanting to help me but I never felt truly connected to them, it felt more like they were out for my money. Immediately after speaking to Georgie I felt comforted. She was like talking to a friend I had known for ages and who had already gone through this process. I am sure those other companies do a great job at helping you through the visa processes and all the other paperwork but Georgie sticks with you through the weird questions. Georgie was always more than willing to help me out with more personal questions that I think other places would have been annoyed or weird about answering. Teacher’s Friend is not only a great company that is looking out for you but also a support system when starting a new life on your own. Georgie helped build my confidence and establish my comfort levels to start this new journey. Though this seemed huge and daunting Georgie helped me feel prepared and excited to start a new life!” Anneliese, UK, 18th Sept 2017
“I couldn’t believe my luck when I came across the website ‘Teachers Friend Vietnam’: it was offering precisely what I needed to embark on my new teaching venture.  What is advertised is exactly what is delivered and it is exceptionally good value for money.  Without ‘Teachers Friend’ and Georgie, the company director, this experience would have been so much more challenging and time consuming to organise.  Georgie is extremely well versed in all things Vietnamese!  She is an excellent communicator and has dealt with my endless questions swiftly and effectively; she is also very empathetic, encouraging and a great listener.  There has been many a time when I have just wanted to hug her!   I am so very thankful for the expert guidance and ongoing support. ” (Crystal, UK) Aug 2017   

“Teacher ‘s Friend Vietnam is truly an ESL Teacher’s Friend– not only will it ‘hold your hand’ all the way

til you land a job, but Georgie will keep on keeping in touch with you after acquiring a teacher job. It’s very professional in it’s advice and in its job of finding its clients teaching jobs. TFV always replied quickly and always in a timely manner. I highly recommend it and it’s well worth your money.” (Patricia, US) June 2017


“Georgie has been amazing from start and she has completely superseded my expectations!  From the support via Skype prior to interviewing with potential Language Centers to helping with housing etc – the service has been top notch! She helped me to feel more confident and comfortable with the idea of packing up and moving half way around the world to try my hand at being an ESL Teacher.  I cannot stress enough how helpful and encouraging she has been every step of the way. Georgie helped to navigate the job search despite my health issues and perimeters.  I would highly recommend Georgie and Teacher’s Friend Vietnam to anyone apprehensive about making the move or to even the most seasoned ESL traveler. She is a dream to work with and all of her recommendations have been spot onThanks a million Georgie!”(Melissa, US) May 02nd 2017

“Georgie is very patient, devoted and dynamic! She was able to answer all my questions and to adapt the contract to my professional needs. I would definitely recommend Teacher’s Friend Vietnam to anyone interested in working in Vietnamese schools or language centres. This is the easiest and most reliable way to do it. I also really appreciated receiving so many documents about life in Vietnam, Vietnamese students, etc. Don’t search any further, Georgie is the person you need to find a job!”  Maxime, (France) April 08th 2017

“The service provided by Teacher’s Friend exceeded all my expectations. The staff are very helpful and they answered all my queries and tried their best to accommodate my requests. They have trustworthy and resourceful staff. I would recommend them highly for their services.” Rohit (India) Jan 28th 2017

“Teacher’s friend Vietnam has been extraordinary for me. It has saved me from a cost perspective. It has helped me understand the legislative and social challenges for a Singaporean wanting to pursue an ESL career in Vietnam. The warmth through their consulting on an ESL career in Vietnam one cannot source elsewhere. Their candid approach particularly was much appreciated. Even though I did not end up taking up a package with them….if you going to Vietnam, these guys would be your best bet from a cost, legislative and social perspective. Georgie is your go to person. She is an encyclopaedia of knowledge with regards to ESL in Vietnam. All my contact with other language centres in Vietnam would always mirror Georgie’s guidance. Great soul. Straight talk all the way…”Devinder Singh (Singapore) Jan 27th 2017

“Me and my boyfriend made the bold decision to travel the world instead of buying our first home a year before we set off. We knew we wanted to work and settle somewhere along the way…we just didn’t know where! It never occurred to us that Vietnam would be the expat dream! A friend had recommended we search TFV- we contacted Georgie and within a couple days I had signed a contract and was more than excited to get going! I have suffered with anxiety for over 6 years and to me, travelling and moving abroad was incredibly daunting, but I knew I had to be brave and get out there! My stress and anxious questioning was calmed and soothed by TFV who couldn’t do enough. Every minor ‘silly’ questions (obvious for most but not me) were answered and I quickly felt reassured that everything was going to be Ok!”

Myself and my boyfriend were able to travel both China and Thailand confidently knowing when we get to Hanoi, everything would run smoothly – which it certainly did! After arriving in Hanoi, I have built up several jobs within 1 week and am now living more comfortably then back home. I originally thought I would be here for 6 months. However, after just 2 weeks, I signed up to 1 year contracts, knowing this is the place for me. I am also assured that in my time in Vietnam I can look for advice on anything with TFV and Georgie. I now feel at home, and can save even more money to travel elsewhere than originally planned!” Amy (UK) Jan 21st, 2017



“If you are looking for fast, efficient, FRIENDLY and professional assistance, then Georgie is THE person to run to. Utilizing Teacher’s Friend Vietnam, with regards to finding a job in Vietnam, has taken a lot of stress off my shoulders . Georgie also follows up, and she has kept in touch with me, even after I got the job! Even now, 4 months after starting my new job in Vietnam, I can honestly say that I still feel welcome to contact Georgie for assistance” – Sonia Kruger (South Africa) Nov 12th, 2016 




“”I can’t say enough good things about Teachersfriend. From helping find a job to transitioning to Vietnam, Georgie’s advice, knowledge and customer service has been brilliant. She is proactive and works closely with you to ACHIEVE your goals. Knowing if I get really stuck I have someone I can call on has brought a lot of peace of mind and having someone to ask questions about ANYTHING Vietnam was really helpful. At times the process of transitioning to a new country can be overwhelming and confusing, at these times I have been so THANKFUL that I chose to engage Teachersfriend. They help take out a lot of the stress involved in the whole process. Obviously no agency can be miracle workers and you need to be flexible and open if you want to have a successful transition but I have never regretted my partnership with Teachersfriend.” Rachel (Australia) Nov 9th, 2016

“G, That’s very valuable and worthwhile information (especially RE: rabies).  Almost anyone I would ask over here would be making money off of me, so their advice would be biased.” Eric, US, 10th Aug 2017


“I did my Welcome Tour today and Tan my guide was awesome!  I let him know that I had been to Hanoi before so I really needed his help finding the closest supermarket, bank etc to me.  We did have a lovely meal in Westlake as well and he was a complete lifesaver!  He helped me navigate opening a bank account and I am so grateful that he was there!  Thanks again for everything – the job at the language center is working out great so thanks for guiding me through the process of finding a job before I arrived.  I am really enjoying it here so far!” Mel, March 28th, 2017
