1Why I Chose to Teach in VietnamThere are a few big companies: Language Link, E-connect, VPbox to name a few. Most agencies are smaller, and don’t support work permit, visa process. In terms of getting paid and treatment there are less risks with bigger companies, but more paperwork and less wiggle-space to negotiate good hours/pay. 2018-01-18 17:32:43
