INTERNATIONAL VILLAGE Project is constantly expanding. We keep on working on new innovative products for students. We’re very proud to announce that we established a cooperation with an educational organisation from Vietnam called HEADSTART Vietnam.
HEADSTART VIetnam is a community engaging members with real-world English environment. They use new and innovative programs to provide English training in a fun and natural way. They embrace the idea of free open space for creative and unlimited learning, playing and working experience.
HEADSTART prides on their staff who are kind, open-minded, passionate and always engage full eagerness to help everyone seize opportunities in today’s global world.Headstart’s vision and goal is to help as many non English native speakers become global citizens who are not only natural in using English but also experts in 21st century skills-Critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity. In order to achieve this goal, they have a research team that continuously study the most updated neuroscience and linguistic research in the World to best tailor our programs for the learners.
Over the course of 8 years, they welcomed over 10,000 members coming from different backgrounds at different ages and levels of English living in Headstart community at 5 different locations

There will be two levels of the cooperation:
1.Cooperation with INTERNATIONAL VILLAGE: HEADSTART Vietnam will be sending Vietnamese students to take part in the project. A group of about 10-15 students will be taking part in the INTERNATIONAL VILLAGE project which takes place in Slovakia. We expect the first groups to come to Slovakia in 2017. Expanding the project out of Europe will take it to a different level and will make it really unique and one of its kind. There is no similar project in Europe which gives students a chance to meet their peers from a country in Asia which represents totally different culture. It will be a real culture clash meeting and will be an unforgettable experience for both European and Vietnamese students.
2.Cooperation with VILLAGE TRAVELS: We offer you a chance to take your students to Vietnam. We call this „Vietnam Adventure” The main idea of that cooperation is: students from Europe will have a chance to go to Vietnam, have language workshops ( English language ) with English native speakers organised by HEADSTART Vietnam, visit the capital of Vietnam Hanoi, visit the southern part of Vietnam Hoian (HEADSTART VIETNAM has one of their schools there), get to know the culture of Vietnam, the food and most important and beneficial, they will have a chance to meet Vietnamese students ( also students from Thailand, Japan, China, Malaysia and Singapore )
We think that this is a very great opportunity for your students to experience a real culture clash, visit interesting country, taste delicious Vietnamese food and meet Vietnamese teenagers …. That may be the most exciting and interesting experience in their lives ….. I dont know of any other organisations in Europe which can offer your students sucha n interesting project.
