Hi I’m Dennis and I’m currently based in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and have been a local here since birth. I’m currently working full time as a developer, and in my free time I enjoy teaching people languages. Language learning has been one of my oldest hobbies simply because it helps you to adopt different perspectives and also to share mine. Growing up in a Chinese household, I use 3 languages on a daily basis. And that allows me to experience language from an expat’s point of view.

The teacher has great energy and we converse and develop vocabulary that's related to business-professionalism. Because the teacher is also a white-collar professional, I think he is someone good for engagement, who can understand office politics, clothing, and other topics related to the office.

Having a structured approach is great for beginners but when one studied Vietnamese for a long time, finding that way for additional improvement may not be trouble-free. The teacher has helped me by allowing myself to drive the lessons but also provide feedback and suggested material. His having great English usage (better than many teachers) helps with the lessons especially when it's business-focused. In a way, it feels more like having a business conversational partner which I enjoy. If you're looking for a partner to induce you to drive your learning especially in business, he may be someone you should consider.

I've managed to communicate with the supermarket staff and give directions in Vietnamese thanks to Dennis' "Getting by in Vietnam with basic Vietnamese" course. When studying the course, you choose the topics and Dennis delivers a tailor-made lesson using authentic materials like Facebook posts and podcasts. He shares a lot of personal anecdotes to help you understand when and where to use the learnt language. In addition, he takes the time to ensure that your pronunciation is on point and that the language you learn is authentic to make sure that you'll be understood in the real world. If you're looking for a Vietnamese course that enables you to succeed in your life in Vietnam, look no further than Dennis' courses.

Great first experience! Dennis is very knowledgeable in the English language, so he does an amazing job at explaining things in a way a native English speaker can understand. I’m looking forward to future lessons with him 👍🏼
