Teaching Methodology

One-on-one instruction
Our teaching program focuses on one-on-one instruction with a native speaker trained in teaching Vietnamese. Group classes, even if they're lead by the best instructor simply don't compare with the focus and personalized attention that a competent one-on-one instructor can offer.
Teaching methodology
We emphasize learning to speak foremost, learning to communicate verbally, learning correct pronunciation. While you will certainly learn to read and write, the verbal aspects of Vietnamese are typically most challenging, and also the part that pays the largest dividends for learning.

Vietnamese Language Garden's teaching style is adapted from successful South American Spanish language schools where one-on-one teaching with well trained, local, native speakers is a proven, effective, and efficient style of language school. We strive to bring this excellent style of teaching to Asia where it isn't yet common.
A focus on the student, on You

As a private lesson, we quiz you to learn your strengths and listen to your needs. Each lesson is naturally tailored to your skill set, needs, and goals.
Allow us to lead you through the process of learning Vietnamese or customize your learning experience yourself.

We typically rotate instructors on a weekly-to-monthly basis as you learn, in order to keep your lessons engaging and challenging. However, if you prefer to stick with 1 teacher, it is totally ok too!

Introductory Classes / Essentials Course for Travellers

For those who are not staying permanently, we offer a tailored program to help you quickly gain confidence in navigating Vietnam on your own. You will learn the fundamentals for directions (guide a taxi to your destination), shopping (cost, numbers, bargaining), eating (ordering, social norms), etc. In these courses, we focus less on language perfection and more on immediately useful skills typically needed by travelers who only have one or a few weeks to learn. We also spend some focus on cultural topics of interest and value to most travelers.

If you are traveling in Vietnam for more than one week. Here is the best course that we offer you. The 5 to 20-hour teaching program will not only teach Vietnamese but also introduce you to Vietnamese Culture, tips to travel in Vietnam, etc.

Weekly Classes (daily Learner, Avid Learner, Outstanding Achiever, Scholar, Intense, and Resident): 
Our weekly classes are the best way to quickly become proficient with the language. Daily exposure and practice are key. For those wanting to get up to speed quickly, we encourage you to consider a morning or afternoon study routine of 4 hours per day.
Weekly classes go from Monday to Friday at the same time each day at school. They include time for breaks during the study.
Flexible Time and Location Study

We realize that schedules are challenging, especially for working professionals. Our flexible time and location study offers what you need. Come to school and study here, or we'll visit your office or home. You choose the time and days that you study.

Virtual Lessons

For those who want to continue or begin learning abroad or who are not in Saigon, Vietnam, we offer virtual lessons via Zoom, Google Meet, Skype, or Yahoo. Please refer to our flexible time and location offerings for online lessons.

Private Lessons vs. Group Classes

We strongly emphasize one-on-one instruction; it's simply the best way to learn and how our instructors are trained to teach. When students ask about group classes, and we allow for a maximum of two individuals to one instructor, in such cases we charge the couple 1.5 times below the rate of the normal single-student price.
