Information Sessions at the Career Center: Teach in Vietnam, PULSE, and St. Ann’s School

teachersforvietnamTeachers for Vietnam: TFV is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the teaching of English in Vietnamese colleges and universities. Teachers for Vietnam brings teachers of English as a Second Language (ESL) into classrooms which otherwise would not be exposed to native speakers. Teachers for Vietnam thus enriches the educational and pre-professional development of Vietnamese students. An important component of our mission is promoting greater contact, understanding, and friendship between the peoples of Vietnam and the United States. American teachers at Vietnamese universities accomplish these goals in a direct, personal way and have a lasting impact on their students. The teachers themselves are also transformed by their experiences in Vietnam. (12:00p on Wednesday, February 5; 41 Wyllys Avenue)
