Meanwhile, the Canadian International School (CIS) have spent roughly VND1 billion (over US$ 43130) on bringing new foreign teachers over from Canada to Vietnam. The expenses largely consisted of flight tickets, quarantine fees, and the fees for several COVID-19 tests.(Photo: aFamily)
Similarly, English teaching centers in Vietnam are facing numerous difficulties as a result of a shortage of foreign teachers.
According to an owner of an English center based in Ho Chi Minh City, despite a huge demand among Vietnamese students for foreign teachers, the center is unable to pay to bring them back to the nation.
Moreover, a similar situation is occurring in public schools throughout Ho Chi Minh City with students joining integrated programs. This shortage has caused several schools to adjust their schedule and the number of times students spends with foreign teachers, in addition to forcing many to lower tuition fees.
