This list has been uppdated: More English Schools In Danang
Here are the current crop of English schools in Danang in no particular order.
ILA – 66 Vo Van Tan Street
One of Vietnam’s largest language centers with schools all over the country. ILA is more likely to transfer teachers from Ho Chi Minh City or Hanoi rather than hire somebody already in Danang. They cater mostly to kids classes but also have adult and corporate programs.
ELI – 41 Le Duan Street (closed since 2016 now is VNUK)
The new kid on the block and established by Queensland University, ELI certainly has the nicest building of any language center in the city. This place is probably the most exclusive language school with high prices for students and as such high demand from its teachers.
APOLLO – 81 Quang Trung Street
Apollo has a similar story to that of ILA with massive expansion in recent years, it has been in Vietnam for over 10 years and has schools nationwide. Apollo teaches a mix of childrens, adults and corporate classes and has mostly full time teachers who work exclusively for Apollo.
VATC – 85-87 Nguyen Van Linh Street
Vietnamese American Training College is a Vietnamese owned and managed school and probably has more centers than any other language school in the country. The Danang branch is in the center of town and caters to the middle classes with reasonable prices and a mix of foreign and local teachers.
AVIEC – 288 Nguyen Van Linh Street
American Vietnamese International English center has recently moved to Nguyen Van Linh street, it is quite small and employs a handful of foreign teachers who work alongside local staff. It runs a range of classes, IELTS, TOEIC, general English and kids classes on the weekends.
HONG DUC English Center- 104/9 Le Dinh Ly Street
This school is relatively unknown and new to the business of employing foreign teachers. The owner is friendly and eager to please with a reasonable salary and modern facilities. The focus here is mostly on academic English and test preparation for students wishing to study abroad.
FISHER’S SUPERKIDS – 99 Nguyen Van Linh Street
As the name suggests this school caters to young learners and requires that its teachers be energetic and enthusiastic. It used to rely on volunteer teachers but now hires teachers and pays a reasonable wage.
English For Kids – 74 Pastuer Street / 74 Cao Van Street
They have been around for quite a bit and growing very fast, more than a thousand pupils now I have heard. They are always looking for foreign part time teachers to do (mostly) review lessons. The usual requirements of being enthusiastic, energetic and good with small children, on top of being native English speakers, of course. The pay rate is quite decent and the kids are very well behaved.
Australia / Saigon English Training Center (AUS) – 57 Phan Dang Luu Street
This is quite a new school that is growing quickly which means they are usually looking for new foreign teachers.
