Get out of the classroom and start practicing your speaking skills in real life!

Welcome to the LTL’s Hanoi Safari. There is no better way to learn Vietnamese in Vietnam than in real life situations. Go shopping, enjoy ordering food or use public transport. You’ll learn and use day to day essentials in this Safari.

A certified Vietnamese teacher will guide you through the vocabulary you need to know. Through constructive feedback and practice, you’ll quickly gain the skills to communicate confidently in Vietnamese in any situation.

Before you know it, you’ll be able to use your newfound language skills on the streets and in everyday situations.

NOTE | This program is an upgrade and can only be purchased on top of an Individual Vietnamese course.

If you are wondering where to stay, or would like to make the most of your experience in Hanoi, we highly recommend you book a homestay with LTL.

A Homestay family is the preferred choice for 80% of our students. By living with a Vietnamese family, you’ll have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the local culture, practice your Vietnamese speaking skills daily, and savor delicious homemade meals in the comfort of a cozy apartment. With the care and warmth of a loving Vietnamese family, you’ll feel right at home while experiencing a new way of life.

Living with a homestay has proved to be the most efficient way to make progress, as our families usually don’t speak much English. This creates an immersive atmosphere that cannot be replicated elsewhere.


No need to worry about where to go and how to get to your accommodation after your arrival in Hanoi.

Our chauffeur can come and get you from Nội Bài International Airport. You only need to look out for your name.

Let us know during the booking process if you’d like us to organise the pick up for you. We offer further additional extras which you can find here.


How long is a 1-on-1 Vietnamese class?

Each lesson lasts for 55 minutes.

How long is a Vietnamese language program at LTL?

You decide on the length of your Vietnamese language program.

From 1 to 52 weeks, you choose how long you wish to learn Vietnamese in Saigon with LTL.

Some people even book another course after their first one is complete so it’s truly flexible.

If you are unsure about the optimum length for your program, we would be happy to hear about your plans and assist you in this decision.

Contact us here to get in touch with a Student Advisor.

Do I have just one teacher?

You can have one or two teachers, this will depend on your language program and your preferences.

Please let us know during the booking process.

This is also subject to teacher availability.

Isn’t 6 hours a day too much study time?

Six hours per day can sound like a lot, but in our experience it is not as draining as it sounds.

Our lessons are designed to be diverse and engaging, and our teachers incorporate a variety of fun and innovative teaching methods to keep you focused and motivated.

From watching videos and playing board games to creating role-plays and more, you’ll have a blast while learning Vietnamese.

There is no doubt it’s a challenge, and we aren’t saying it’s easy, but we’ve had plenty of students enjoy the six hour per day schedule.

How can I meet other students with 1-on-1 classes?

Meeting other students and making friends is actually very easy at LTL, even if you’re taking individual classes.

We organise school lunches, as well as school activities after class and weekend trips.

Students, teachers and staff usually get together during breaks, or stay for coffee after class, so don’t worry about meeting new people.

If you live with a homestay family, you will be able to meet even more people as you will take part in the family’s various activities.

What’s best, group classes or 1-on-1?

This will depend on various elements.

Group classes are designed for beginner to intermediate students typically.

Individual classes are made for every level, but even more so if you are of a higher level.

Individual classes are best for people who’d like to learn fast and make great progress in a short amount of time.

What are the after school activities?

After school activities can be visits to historical and touristy places, parks or shopping areas.

We can also organise cooking classes, traditional clothes fittings, movie nights, etc.

We are always open to new suggestions so feel free to suggest anything.

How long does it take to learn fluent Vietnamese?

The number of lessons and how long it takes to be fluent in Vietnamese will depend on multiple factors.

It’s important to recognize that we all have unique learning speeds and retention abilities. Finding the most effective learning approach for you may take some time and experimentation.

Additionally, your progress will depend on factors such as the amount of time you can dedicate to learning, whether you prefer individual or group classes, and your ability to immerse yourself in a language-rich environment and practice your language skills regularly.

This is exactly why we work with Homestay families, so all of our students have the chance to practice their Vietnamese skills 24/7 at home after school, and make progress a lot faster.

The term ‘fluent’ can also differ from person to person. Is your goal to navigate life comfortably as an expat in Vietnam, or do you need to be able to work in a specific field with a Vietnamese team on a daily basis?

If you need some guidance, we are here to help.

The adminstration behind the teaching is well organized and supportive where needed. I am very hapy with LTL and would recommend it to any one.

My Vietnamese has improved exponentially with my teacher’s help, and he has continually gone above and beyond to make classes varied and interesting.

– Oliver from the UK


The school offered a “Safari” program, in which my teacher would take me out to real-world situations to practice speaking. Don’t be afraid to inquire!
