Some Things You Might See During Your First Week in Vietnam

Some Things You Might See During Your First Week in Vietnam

All Greenheart Travel teachers in Vietnam will participate in a week long group orientation upon arrival to Vietnam! At orientation, you’ll have the opportunity to meet many other new like-minded and adventurous teachers who have also just arrived! Since most teachers are placed in and around HCMC and Hanoi, you’ll get to know a few people you’ll eventually be placed alongside and/or might live with. Orientation includes important activities and classes on what to expect on your program, Vietnamese language, and local culture.

Orientation week is full of fun activities and excursions, which are included in the program (note that these will vary based on start date):

  • Welcome dinner
  • Vietnamese Culture and History lessons
  • Vietnamese language lessons
  • Vietnamese cooking class
  • Vietnamese martial arts class
  • Hanoi: Ethnology Museum, Water Puppet Show and Hao Lo Prison
  • HCMC: War Remnants Museum and Cu Chi tunnels
  • Market tour with the Vietnamese staff, to help learn basic phrases and how to buy items at a market
