Worked in Vietnam for a few years now and at some of the big schools. This is by far the better one I've worked at.
Pay is decent, schedules are good, nice holiday too. They have workshops and check in on you to ask how you're getting on so I've definitely learned some new skills while being here.
Quite a bit of test marking at the end but manageable. Management is friendly and helps out a lot. HR is really supportive.

Working for Schools Link (not the language centers - this program works in public schools) means that you get a regular timetable of daytime hours (no evenings! no weekends! yay!) with roughly 18-20 teaching hours per week. Books and materials are all provided and lots of support is available to you from the management team if you need it. The books they teach from are easy to use and interesting too. As well as public holidays and Tet you get a week off for Christmas and also up to 12 days annual leave. You also don't have to write reports (other similar companies want you to do that every week) and you get observed twice a year to help with your teaching.
I worked for this company for several years and in that time have taught at multiple schools, the majority of which have been great working environments. They support your professional development and are always happy to help if you need further support. The pay depends upon qualifications etc and you do have to pay tax but that is because the company is legitimate and follows Vietnamese law, unlike many other less scrupulous companies that pay cash in hand so they can avoid contributing anything to the society in which they operate. If you do a good job and wish to stay with the company then your salary will increase every year and they have a very open system regarding pay scales. Overall it's been a really positive experience working for them.

I had suffered a light pain at the left shoulder, because everyday I carried bag ony at this side. Comparing to the other side, it was hard and inflexible.
When came here I did not think that it could help but I was really satisfied.
The staff only used her hands, not just massaging, very thankful to her.
Nice staff and good service.

Sau khi ngủ dậy lưng của tôi bị đau đột ngột, tôi hầu như không thể cử động được vùng lưng. Lúc ngồi, hay lúc đi tôi đều bị đau nhói vùng lưng. Tôi rất lo lắng. Rất may tôi đã được chữa khỏi đau ở lưng chỉ sau 4 buổi tới kinmaku. Tôi rất kinh ngạc vì hiệu quả bất ngờ.

El pasado mes de Enero de 2019, efectuamos un circuito de 6 días por Laos, privado, hoteles 4 estrellas, media pensión y guía en español. Antes de comenzar el circuito nos subieron el precio unos 300€ , nos duplicaron el precio de alguna excursión, y el presupuesto de la comida , según el guía era de 10€ por persona....mejor no confiarse...

My partner and I are dedicated to our yoga practice and are somewhat new to Hanoi. We found Amit and Yoga Cafe by chance and now feel like home in this studio. As a teacher Amit is warm, knowledgeable, and very encouraging. Off the mat he is ready and willing to share wisdom from his many years in study of the mind/body. The cafe is awesome and homemade chai is amazing!

Ordering from their website is a nightmare. Avoid it.
The website doesn't reflect actual stock, so just because it says something is in stock, it doesn't mean it really is. "Maybe at the end of the month."
If they can't fulfil your order immediately, they will cancel any special offers or discounts that applied when you ordered and insist that you pay full price. (In many other countries this is called "Bait and Switch" and is illegal).
Then, they won't actually deliver on the day that they promise to. "We will be on time" they wrote but they didn't come at all. After a lot of back and forth, they agreed to come by 11pm the following day (yes, that is 11pm, not 11am).

I’d like to share a very warm recommendation for Minh Ho as an insurance agent, who for the last ~4 years has helped my wife (Vietnamese) and me (not Vietnamese) with health insurance from both Liberty Mutual and Pacific Cross.
We've dealt with emergencies requiring immediate assistance in Hanoi, routine medical checkups in Thailand, direct billing issues, dental questions at Westcoast, and claim problems with Minh and he's always been extremely helpful and responsive. This also includes finding packages that cover maternity, which my wife and I have used successfully this year.
If you're looking for health insurance and not sure where to begin, Minh should be your first stop.
The quality of packages all differ from place to place so there's no one-size-fits-all plan that I can recommend, but I do highly suggest contacting Minh if you're looking for someone who might be able to help you find a health insurance plan that's suitable for you.
Thanks so much to Minh for all he's done for my wife and me, and have a wonderful holiday ahead!

Higher priced than Pepperoni's but the same low quality fare. Had lunch at their Aeon Mall location this week - what God awful excuse for a pizza! I must say the service was excellent, but I'm sticking with Capricciosa (Vincom Bà Triệu) because I like good food.

I went to this storage facility earlier this week and rented a unit called M size. The store manager (Mrs Ly) was very kind and explained the whole process. I now have a key and can go to my mini storage unit anytime, which is great! Overall, very happy. Recommended.

Reminded me of Tacos bars in california. Has a really fun time here with friends on a rainy evening. The watermelon and basil margarita is DANGEROUS !!! was soooo good. From the food, the winner was the chopped cheese taco and the shrimp, which is spicy!! Price is ok, makes a nice change from noodles anyway :)))
