Language is a very effective and important tool, and also a channel for reaching out to the younger generation in Vietnam. It can help young people connect with the outside world and be able to communicate with people from different backgrounds and cultures. English can also help equip people and give them opportunities to apply for a much wider range of jobs and have better job opportunities.
So, it is very important for us, as YWAM HCMC, to be able to help and connect with young people by giving them the opportunity to study Language without having to worry about the cost. Also, if they can be taught by native speakers, they will be able to benefit even more.
Therefore, we started a free Language teaching ministry in March 2019. Currently, we are running two basic level classes with about 10+ students in all. We will run each course for 3 months. And then, we plan to open higher level classes to accommodate our students as they grow in their English abilities.
Vietnam is a nation where more than 50% of the population is under 40 years old and Ho Chi Minh City itself has more than 5.5 million people who are under the age of 30. This shows us that there are a lot of young people that we can meet and help, and that there is a great opportunity for us to reach out to this young generation through teaching English.
So, this is our need. We see that more and more students are coming to our free English classes and we will soon need to begin offering higher levels classes. Therefore, we are in need of native English/Korean-speaking teachers who have a heart for Vietnam and who love to connect with and help young people. We are looking for people to commit for at least 3 months at a time (although 6 months or 1 year would be even better).
If you join us, you will have the opportunity to visit many universities and talk to students who want to practice speaking English with native speakers, as well as, being able to teach the students in our classes. If you have a heart for mission, young people, joining YWAM HCMC’s Language ministry could be a good opportunity for you! If you want to join us, or if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
