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.

Introductory Classes / Essentials course for Travelers
For those who are not staying on a permanent basis we offer a very tailored program to help you quickly gain confidence 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 travelling in Vietnam more than 1 week. Here is the best course that we offer you. The 5 to 20 hours teaching program will not only teach Vietnamese but also introduce to you Vietnamese Culture, tips to travel in Vietnam, etc.

Weekly Classes
Our weekly classes are the best way to become proficient with the language quickly. Daily exposure and practice is 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 the school. They include time for breaks during 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 the school and study here or we'll come to your office or home. You choose the time and days that you study.

Virtual Lessons
For those wanting to continue, or begin, their learning abroad we offer virtual lessons taught by 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 it's how our instructors are trained to teach. At times students ask about group classes, 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.
