Vietnam Tourist visa: for a limited period of leisure travel, no business activities allowed. This type of visa is for those who want to enter Vietnam with the purpose of travelling or engaging in recreational activities such as having a rest, going sigh-seeing, visiting relatives or friends, taking part in short-term non-work purposes or even short-term studying. Tourist visa is usually valid for 1 month; you can enter Vietnam once or more than once with this kind of visa. I.E. it allows single or multiple entries. Tourist visas may be extended after your arrival in Vietnam.

Vietnam Business visa: A business visa is usually valid for 3 months, allowing single or multiple entry and the right to work. For those who want to enter Vietnam for work with Vietnamese enterprise, this type of visa is an appropriate one.  The procedure of getting a business visa at present is cheaper and simpler than before, although the prices are nearly double those of a tourist visa.

You can enter Vietnam by tourist visa, enroll in a Vietnamese course then apply at the immigration office for changing your visa status.
