I not only chose to live abroad, but to teach abroad again because I genuinely enjoy working with students, especially with the youth. Despite the fact that I am in the teaching position, I feel like I am learning just as much, if not more, from my students. It serves as a reminder of how fulfilling it is to work with students as there is something new to be learned every day, and that you do create an impact – be it big or small – in their lives. Their liveliness and energy encourage me to do more, and to do better for them.Teacher Joyce

About the school and city

Apollo IH Hanoi is part of a large group of language schools concentrated in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. Each branch has a very modern feel, and its styled with an eye for detail. 

If you are at school at class drop off time, watch out for all the parents dropping off their kids as passengers on their mopeds! With great safety and order, hundreds of excited kids rush into the school! 

Situated a 10-minute drive from the hustle and bustle of Hanoi’s famous Old Quarter (home of Hoan Kiem lake), our Pho Hue centre is situated in the Hai Ba Trung area of Hanoi. This is where teacher training happens.
