About Me
italki teacher since Dec 12, 2021
I'm Dennis ( or you can call me Hồng ), a developer based in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. I'm full blooded Chinese and growing up I speak Vietnamese, Cantonese and recently English on a daily basis. The YouTube culture back in the 2010s motivated me to learn English and that has sparked my interest in language learning and also geography. By learning about the lifestyle of expats both inside and outside the country ( through YouTube ) I was eager to interact and help with expats with their language needs.

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.
