If you’d like to study more specific topics such as Vietnamese for Expats, or to prepare for a Vietnamese Language Proficiency Test (such as Năng lực Tiếng Việt) we can organise a custom language program for you.

These programs will require more specific details from you in order for us to prepare the perfect course. Be sure you talk to our team about your project early on, and we’ll help you get ready for your exciting language program with us.


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

80% of our students choose to stay with a Homestay family. You can enjoy life as a member of a Vietnamese family, practice your Vietnamese speaking skills every single day and eat delicious homemade food in the comfort of a cozy apartment with a loving Vietnamese family.

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.


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

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.

You will be accompanied by a certified Vietnamese teacher who will teach you the necessary vocabulary. You will then receive feedback and before you know it you’ll be using Vietnamese on the streets everywhere you go.

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

No need to worry about where to go and how to get to your accommodation after you arrive in Saigon.

Our chauffeur can come and get you from Tan Son Nhat 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.

All lessons are designed to be diverse and entertaining, and our teachers know plenty of methods to teach in a fun way to keep you focused.

This could be through watching videos, playing board games, creating role plays… you will have a lot of fun studying 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.

First of all, we all have different learning speeds and retention abilities. You need to find what kind of learning works for you, and that can take time.

It will also depend on the time you can dedicate to your learning, if you can take individual or group classes at all, and if you are able to engage and practice your language skills in an immersive environment.

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.

Studying Vietnamese with LTL has been an educational, immersive, and vastly positive experience overall. My teacher, Hoàng Ân, has been absolutely brilliant.

Great school. The teachers are great people who really want you to win. The flexibility to learn in person when you need extra motivation or online when you’re very busy is very helpful.

– Josh from US


Friendly people. Fun teachers. Classrooms are much cleaner and more organised than other places I’ve been too. Nice convenient location close to a local pub street.
