Students: Need Summer Plans? Teach English in Vietnam!

College students can apply now to teach English to Vietnamese students at Wesley Theological School in Ho Chi Minh City. The Vietnamese students will also learn about and participate in collegiate ministry activities with the English-speaking students.

This English Language Institute program is supported by the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry’s Collegiate Ministry section. Students must be recommended for the program by their campus minister or chaplain and the deadline to apply is March 1.

“By providing a way to send students who are active in their collegiate ministries and willing to teach their native language, The United Methodist Church is able to extend its collegiate ministries globally, while helping Vietnamese students develop their English language skills,” said the Rev. Michael McCord, GBHEM’s Director of Campus Ministry Resources and Training.

The basic English-as-a-Second Language classes will be taught in an intensive three-week format. The cost to students who are accepted as teachers is $750 per student, including airfare, lodging at the Methodist Center in Ho Chi Minh City, food, and transportation. Advance training for the teachers is scheduled May 19-20 in Nashville, Tenn., and student teachers will be in Ho Chi Minh City from May 21-June 13. College students who are accepted as teachers must pay a $350 non-refundable deposit by March 1, 2012, with the balance of $400 due April 15.
