Foyle Chris - “A teacher falling in love with Vietnam”

After travelling throughout Vietnam and falling in love with Vietnamese food, people and incredible landscapes, Mr. Foyle Chris decided to stay here. Through a friend who works at TOPICA, Mr. Chris has lived in Vietnam and worked for TOPICA Native for over a year.

He loves the flexibility TOPICA Native offers as he can arrange classes according to his schedule as well as have an opportunity to talk to people from all around South East Asia.


He thinks that with real lessons, online teaching is a great way to improve speaking and listening skills. Moreover, it allows students from all over the world to participate in the same lessons. While they're learning English from him, he gets to learn about the cultures of Vietnam and Thailand from them.



Besides teaching, Chris has a great passion for sport, especially badminton, skiing and climbing. Having a good job of teaching language for needed people, good food and coffee is everywhere, interesting everyday culture exchange, Hanoi has become a can-not-be-more-perfect “second home” for this young English guy.



This Christmas, Chris is heading home to the UK for his first Christmas with family in five years and stills plan on teaching while at home - one of the advantages of working for TOPICA Native! For the time being, he loves living in and exploring Vietnam as well as learning French so that one day he can move back to France.



One of  Chris’s favourite quotes is "The more relaxed you are, the better you are at everything: the better you are with your loved ones, the better you are with enemies, the better you are at your job, the better you are with yourself." (Bill Murray)


Witnessing the exclusive growth of TOPICA Native, Chris is confident to say that the program will dominate the market of South East Asia in the near future, and having a chance to contribute his part in the mission of Help Mission study has made his life more meaningful. “Being a part of the community of over 700 online educators worldwide of TOPICA Native is an opportunity that brings a lot of valuable experience in my life. I hope that in the future I can contribute more for the great mission of the company besides just teaching online classes”, he shared. .
