This is Brian Smith and I just wanted to drop a line to let you know what I am doing. I have been living in Da Nang, Vietnam and teaching English for the past 4 months. English teaching jobs are abundant here and fairly easy to get. Not as many are available as in Saigon or Hanoi, but they are available. I am enjoying the experience so far and wanted to say thanks for the opportunity to get my TEFL certificate.
