“Towards the end of 2017 I started thinking a lot about what I might like to do in 2018. I was ready for a change and I’d been entertaining the idea of living abroad for a while – I’ve always wanted to spend some time in Vietnam, but I had no idea where to start. I researched on the internet until I was square-eyed and still was no clearer on how to actually go about making it happen – in fact, I was more confused; should I try and secure a job before I go? Should I just turn up and go from there? The more my questions boiled up, the more disillusioned and doubtful I felt. One evening I was reading a travel blog and they mentioned ‘Teacher’s Friend.’ I went onto the website and I knew it was exactly what I needed. Georgie has been a key factor in my moving to Hanoi – from the beginning she was attentive, knowledgeable, calm and available. Any question I had, she had an answer – she also had answers to the questions I didn’t know yet to ask – such as how to properly prepare so that your arrival is as smooth as can be. She helped me find a great job before I left and then guided me through the entire process. Recently she has helped me find an apartment that I love, and she’s checked in to make sure I’m settling OK and if she can do anything to help. The service Georgie provides is a really special one – it is personal, human, understanding, as well as informed, efficient and reliable. If it wasn’t for her help and the confidence she inspires, I wouldn’t be in Vietnam – I’d still be trying to work out how to go about making a change.
With Georgie, I’ve felt accompanied on my solo adventure. You absolutely cannot beat the wisdom of experience that she generously shares. Thank you, thank you, thank you!” Charlotte, UK, 28th January 2018
“Georgie was a massive help for my partner and I relocating to Hanoi. For work she set us up with interviews and we’re now working at a great language centre. She also recommended good businesses and helped us to find an apartment. She is extremely helpful and personable, exactly the sort of person you need to know when choosing to teach abroad. We would highly recommend Georgie and we’re very thankful for she has done for us.” Hannah, UK, 27th Oct 2017
“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
“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 on! Thanks 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!”
“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
