How We Were Founded
Tieng Viet Oi was founded in 2013 by Lan Nguyen and Hoang Anh Phan. Lan was a freelance Vietnamese teacher at the time whose schedule was so full that she wanted to find people with the same passion for teaching as her to share the workload and help each other grow. Hoang Anh was also a Vietnamese teacher working at a centre where profits were regarded more important than the quality of the lessons. He was frustrated and wanted to work in a more student - centred environment where the progress of the students is more important. That's how Lan and Hoang Anh came up with the idea of founding their own group of Vietnamese teachers where they promised to always stay true to their principals; fair treatment of their teachers and high quality lessons. And to this day, they're proud that they've been able to do so.
We offer face-to-face Vietnamese classes in Hanoi, Da Nang and Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) and online Vietnamese classes for students outside of our locations.
We have a Youtube channel dedicated to teaching Vietnamese. Head to our channel to watch weekly Vietnamese video lessons, listening materials for all levels and other fun Vietnamese-related stuff.
Our team is working hard to create more and more useful Vietnamese learning materials both for internal use and for students around the world.
What We Do
Tieng Viet Oi teachers are chosen for their teaching ability, teaching experience, personality and passion for spreading Vietnamese language & culture.
Our team of teachers are also dedicated to co-creating rich resources of Vietnamese learning and teaching materials.
At TVO, we believe that a good teacher is not simply someone who has a lot of certificates and experience, but is someone who can understand, connect and get on well with her students. Teaching skills is something we can train and provide, but not attitude, humour, and kindness.
TVO team have developed our own Vietnamese teaching curriculum, course book and course materials based on our 7 years of experience teaching Communication Vietnamese (since 2013).
Our curriculum follows levels from Beginner (A1) to Advanced (C1). Our books focus on teaching Communication Vietnamese, and therefore include a lot of speaking and listening materials.
