Megan's Journey to Vietnam

Current Location

Lang Son Vietnam

Hello everyone! My name is Megan, but you can call me MJ. I live and teach in Lang Son, Vietnam, and I'm really looking forward to telling you all about my life in this fascinating country. Let's go!


I spent most of this past week planning for a middle school English festival, my upcoming trip to South Korea and future lessons for my students. I worked a lot but I still found time to explore!


Living in Vietnam has changed me. For one thing, I am a now more flexible person who can face new experiences with a calm mind. And this is after just a few months living and working overseas!

Field Notes

Pollution is a problem that impacts the entire world. Everyone has a responsibility when it comes to keeping our planet green. How do people in Vietnam deal with pollution? The answer is not simple.


I am spending the first week of February in South Korea. While Korea has some things in common with Vietnam, Korea is definitely its own place, too. I recommend a visit!
