Learn to Love Swimming

Swimming is not only a funny way to do good exercise and stay fit. Above all, it is also an essential life-skill. By teaching people how to swim we can make the world a safer place and share our love and passion for being in and around the water.

Swimming in Hanoi

SwimFun Hanoi started teaching swimming lessons in Hanoi as a small swimming school for private classes in 2018. At that time Teacher Koen had already been successfully teaching swimming, ESL and other life-skills in Hanoi for several years. He developed a teaching style based on trust, flexibility, patience, understanding and support. Apart from the aquatic skills needed to feel confident and safe in the water, your child foremost will learn how to have fun, play games and enjoy being in the pool. 

Applied English

We can combine our swimming classes with applied English language lessons. In our experience students learn best through meaningful experiences and activities. In addition, teaching English in the swimming pool is the perfect setting for students to practice their second language skill in a funny and natural way.
