JHodgson on Washington Language Center

I worked for Washington Language Center for just 5 months, but I had an absolute wonderful experience with them. Someone from WLC picked me up at the airport when I arrived, they took care of my work permit (and everything that came along with it), and any problem I had was dealt with promptly and effectively.
I worked at the center where I really enjoyed teaching the older age-groups and I felt that the book was a great match with their level.
I also taught at a secondary school where I had a lot of freedom to teach the students how I saw fit. I really enjoyed that experience because learning a new language shouldn't always be about what's written in a book and with all the freedom I had, I was able to incorporate a lot of fun and educational activities into the mix!

Overall, my 5 months at Washington were great. Unfortunately I had to leave early for health reasons, and the company was very supportive on this matter.

I would highly recommend Washington Language Center

I honestly don't know why this place gets such impressive reviews. Only thing outstanding here is the decor, but the food is very average in my opinion. I have enjoyed far better quality in Indian food elsewhere in Hanoi and other VN cities. VERY AVERAGE INDIAN FOOD AT DALCHEENI!

Good pool, good alcohol, friendly staff. Great place to spend a night after work.

I have now been working for E-connect for 2 months and have never been made more welcome by a company. I understand that in the past, mistakes have been made. This is only down to lack of experience and things getting too big too fast. The effort that has now been put into making the whole company as professional as possible is second to none. I have contacted many existing members of staff and none of them have ever been underpaid, as stated by the the previous reviewer. The new branches are all completely refurbished and modern. The teacher contract and it's many many benefits would be hard to beat and I can say that with 8 years teaching experience in many different countries. what i will say to any teachers looking for a comfortable, steady contract with a full course provided for all classes, is to come and have a look for yourselves and then make up your own minds and to not only believe a review written by somebody who may or may not have had a problem in the past.

A lovely coffee shop with Japanese and English flavor. Excellent macha tea and coffee. Try the Ginger Tea!

That terrible review kept me from going to Big C for many months, but the truth is that my trip to this market (by bus #50 from E. Ba Dinh) was pretty good, and I'll go again. I couldn't find everything I needed, but this is crazy Vietnam, after all.
