Hopefully somone can pop in with the names of some of the larger language schools in Vietnam.

In the mean time, you might want to check out a Canadian volunteer teaching organization that needs English teachers in rural Vietnam. I know you are looking for a paid position, but this is a great opportunity to get some experience, learn basic Vietnamese, and become better aquainted with the culture!

Check out:
