Hi, my name is Julian and I'm bilingual in English and German; though I have only taught English as of now.
I came to Vietnam about four years ago and have been teaching English almost ever since I got here.
I have taught teenagers at Highschools, adults and kids at language centers as well as staff in companies. I am very familiar with Achievers ( A1, A1+, A2, B1 ) Speak up, Family and Friends, Everybody up and Market Leader.
I have gained extensive experience in preparing students for the IELTS and APTIS exams over the course of my career, and thus have an archive full of - I reckon - fun activities at hand that will not only help you achieve your goal but enjoy getting there.
I'm happy to tutor a small group, so in case you got a friend or two that are also interested, team up and share the cost. The lessons can be either held at my home, your home or any other shared workspace in Ho chi Minh city. I currently do not offer online tutoring but I probably add this feature in the future.
Shot me a message if you have any questions.
I'm looking forward to hearing from you.
Well, that depends. Vietnamese is obviously very different in terms of tonation, pronunciation and grammar.
But at least we share the the same Latin alphabet, so technically we can read each others language. Which is a good start.
With the right determination you can learn it and if you enjoy the process, it won't feel hard. That's the trick.
Again, that obviously depends on the individual and ones native language. Learning English for a European is most of the time much easier given our common roots than it is for someone from China or Japan for instance. If you really want to learn a language you need to immerse yourself in every aspect of it. This includes people, culture, traditions and all kinds of media you can get your hands on.
Use it and you won't lose it. Don't be afraid to make mistakes. They are crucial for learning.
