About the school and city

Apollo IH Hanoi is part of a large group of language schools concentrated in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. Each branch has a very modern feel, and its styled with an eye for detail. 

If you are at school at class drop off time, watch out for all the parents dropping off their kids as passengers on their mopeds! With great safety and order, hundreds of excited kids rush into the school! 

Situated a 10-minute drive from the hustle and bustle of Hanoi’s famous Old Quarter (home of Hoan Kiem lake), our Pho Hue centre is situated in the Hai Ba Trung area of Hanoi. This is where teacher training happens.
