Teaching in Hanoi

It's hard to believe I have been teaching in Hanoi now for over 7 months. I am currently teaching around 20 classes a week, kids from 7 to 18 years old. I am still really enjoying teaching and I am learning new things all the time. I am also learning new and insightful opinions/comments from my students. I was playing a game with the above class when one of them noticed my mobile phone and with surprise asked;

"You are very handsome Mr Dan. Why do you have this phone?" Its a crappy cheap $50 Nokia phone I have had for a few years.

"Ummmmmmmmmmmm" I replied

"Where is your iPhone?"


Despite having learnt and adapted well to the teaching environment in Hanoi and formulated teaching methods that are both fun and productive for the kids I still find I am often left speechless by the things they say; and that makes the job so much more enjoyable.
