Hello, my name's Anthony McCarthy from London. I am an English teacher currently living in Saigon. I have experience volunteer to teach English in Ecuador, Kazakhstan, and Hanoi. I really enjoy it as it gives me great opportunities to meet local people and to learn more about their culture. I’m excited to help others who want to learn and improve and to meet many new interesting people.
Hello my name is Anthony McCarthy and I am a volunteer ESL teacher at A Better Vietnam, it has been an incredible experience giving me the opportunity to meet some wonderful people. When I live in a new country the most important thing to me is to learn and understand the local culture and people. ABVN is the perfect platform for me to achieve this, every student I have met has taught me something new, whether that be the local customs, cuisine or the language. The students are all so positive and fun, it's not work, it's a pleasure, swapping stories and laughing about cultural differences. The students want to better themselves and ABVN gives me the opportunity to help them whilst improving my teaching skills and my understanding of this amazing country. This project has given me the chance to make lifelong friends and to learn more about myself. Volunteering here is one of the best decisions I have ever made.
