We arrange our groups based on proficiency levels, ensuring that you are paired with students possessing similar Vietnamese language skills as you. This way, you can all learn and progress together towards your goals.

The casual chat is a relaxed conversation with a member of our team and is not designed as a test.

It can be done via WhatsApp, Skype, Zoom or a phone call.


We can organise an airport pickup for you, so your arrival in Hanoi is as smooth as possible.

Let us know if you’d like us to organise it for you, and our chauffeur will come get you at Nội Bài International Airport. They will have a sign with our logo and your name on it so you can easily find each other.

We offer further additional extras which you can discover here.

If you’d prefer individual classes with a private tutor, we’ve got you covered.

We can also organise more specific Individual Courses for you to study Vietnamese in Vietnam. Some examples:


How many students per class?

We have a maximum of 6 students per class, with an average of 2.

We limit the size of our groups to encourage active participation and provide ample opportunities for students to practice speaking.

Additionally, our small class sizes allow our teachers to give individual attention to each student, ensuring that every question is answered.

Rest assured that in our classes, you will always have a voice.

How long is a lesson?

Each lesson lasts for 55 minutes.

Where will my classmates be from?

Your classmates will come from all over the world.

We accept students of all age groups, backgrounds and nationalities, so you’ll be meeting a lot of interesting people at LTL.

Students often make friends for life at LTL given the fact our community is so tight-knit.

Check out our review page to see all the different nationalities who come to LTL.

What is a typical class schedule?

A typical class schedule is 2 hours of class in the morning, and two hours in the afternoon (10am-12pm / 1pm-3pm).

If you joined an intensive program, the two extra 1-on-1 classes per day can be taken at any convenient time for you. Typically this is from 3pm to 5pm.

This schedule can differ depending on the period of the year, and classroom availabilities.

Is Vietnamese easy to learn?

It is a very difficult question to answer as learning languages is different for everyone.

If you have a strong interest in learning Vietnamese, then it might be easier as there is a real passion behind your goals.

Generally speaking, the Vietnamese pronunciation is said to be the most difficult aspect of the learning process, as it is a tonal language.

However, once you’ve mastered the pronunciation, the rest of your learning will become easier.

You’ll be able to focus on learning more vocabulary and grammar structures without focusing too much on the pronunciation, as you’ve already mastered it.

Will I have time to visit the country after the program?

Yes absolutely.

Vietnam is a beautiful country with lots to visit all year round, and you’ll definitely be able to go and explore plenty after your program.

During the booking process, we recommend that you consult with your LTL Student Advisor to discuss your plans and ensure that you have sufficient time on your visa (if applicable).

Do you provide accommodation?

Yes we do.

We provide Homestay accommodation, meaning you’ll be living with a Vietnamese family.

We pride ourselves in our ability to create a truly immersive experience for our students, and living with a homestay family is the best way to do so.

You will be able to speak Vietnamese everyday after school, eat delicious homemade dishes daily and participate in every activity organised, just like any other member of the family.

Visit our dedicated page – Homestays in Hanoi for more details.

How much progress can I expect to make?

Progress really depends on each and everyone.

Attending our classes, completing assigned homework and exercises, and actively participating will undoubtedly enhance your Vietnamese language proficiency.

However, engaging in extracurricular activities, such as cultivating friendships with Vietnamese locals, watching Vietnamese TV, and attending community events can significantly accelerate your progress.

One of the best ways to make great progress is to live with a homestay family, as you get to speak Vietnamese on a daily basis in a very immersive environment.

Progress can be as fast as you’d like it to be, put yourself out there and practice as much as you can.

Adding on individual classes is a surefire way to improve even faster.

How can I sign up?

Speak to our student advisors by opening the live-chat at the bottom right corner of your screen, or send us an email here.

We look forward to hearing about your study plans.

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 processes 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, 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.

I’d recommend this kind of class to anyone who wishes to learn the language. As the classes are small, you can develop friendships. Thanks LTL.

Our teacher made sure there was enough room for personal accents and questions. She really encouraged us to speak, read and write. I’ve made real progress.
