Being a fan of Asia; when I saw this module being advertised on the I-to-I TEFL website – I was excited! The Teaching in Vietnam module was amazing! I found the Culture section of the module the most interesting. This section inspired me to buy the Lonely Planet Travel Guide; which I have read and marked some pages I want to research more. I have also looked into the Vietnam Internship.
I did not realise that Vietnamese food is one of the most varied and delicious cuisines anywhere. It’s a melting pot (sorry, for the pun!) of influences from the country’s foreign rulers. I also did not realise that eating is a social ritual in Vietnam. Meals comprise a number of dishes, served in no particular order, placed in the centre of the table to be shared by diners. I will have to be careful with my Nut Allergy when I am out there.
If you are thinking about teaching in Asia; adding this module to your resume will be a good idea!
