My girlfriend and I are considering relocating to Vietnam this year. She is a qualified primary school teacher in the UK. I hold a BA degree and I am looking to take a CELTA course. She is hoping to find a primary school teaching job which will be (I am assuming) during normal school hours with weekends off.
After doing a little research, I have found that the vast majority of TEFL-related jobs require you work weekday evenings and weekend mornings/afternoons. My question is, are there jobs available whereby I could work weekday daytime teaching English to match the hours my girlfriend would be working as otherwise it looks like we’d be working completely opposite hours and seeing very little of one another. I see there is work available in both international and public schools, however, are the working hours for English teachers within these establishments the same as in the language schools; weekday evenings and weekends.
Can anyone who has worked in Vietnam recently or is currently working in Vietnam answer the above questions please?
