The Job
Wall Street English in Vietnam is holding interviews for English language teachers to join our team and teach communicative English to our adult students. Come and work with a fun, friendly, and professional team dedicated to helping every student speak English with confidence.

The Schools
Established in 1972, Wall Street English is the global leader in English language training for adults. Our innovative Wall Street English Method, which focuses on teaching people to understand and speak English, integrates interactive lessons, self-study in workbooks, and small classes led by native English speaking teachers to provide the most effective English language instruction available.

For over 40 years, Wall Street English has successfully taught over 2 million students through over 450 centers in 28 countries worldwide and is the international brand of choice. Wall Street English is owned by Pearson Group, the global leader in the publication and delivery of English language learning content, distributing to over 60 countries and helping to educate over 100 million people around the world.

Wall Street English Vietnam currently has five centres in Ho Chi Minh City and will continue to expand throughout this year and the subsequent years.

Our centres are designed, built and equipped to premium standards, thus providing teachers, employees and students with an excellent study and work environment. We place a strong emphasis on academic quality and this is reflected in our approach to teacher recruitment, development, support and management.

Video introduction to Wall Street English Vietnam:

The Students
Students are typically 20 to 35 years old professionals, well educated and from a wide variety of backgrounds. They are motivated to learn English and recognise it as a skill essential for their career development. Levels range from beginner right through to advanced and all students are clearly placement tested to ensure they are studying alongside students of the same abilities.

The Courses
Standard Classes
Class sizes are kept small, to an average of 3 students per class, which helps ensure real progress is made by all and allows for easy classroom management.

Lessons are made up of a variety of teaching materials and are designed to be engaging and communicative. Teachers guide students through both controlled practice and authentic conversation activities. All the lesson materials are already in place, so minimal lesson planning is required.

Social Club
Teachers also run sessions with more of a social focus, designed to further give students the opportunity to use their language in a natural setting, while having fun at the same time. Topics are limited only by your imagination and can be anything from baking cookies to speed dating.

Professional Development
We provide training for our teachers and it is a great opportunity to experiment with new methods of teaching and increase the range of your professional development portfolio.
