The COVID-19 pandemic has brought sudden changes in the academic world. On-campus teaching and learning have become online, onscreen, and at-home, thus, the term emergency remote teaching (ERT) has emerged. While many people label this unprecedented shift of teaching-learning situation as online learning and distance education, ERT scholars describe it as a distinct pedagogy that is far different from face-to-face delivery and not comparable to well-prepared, fully-structured online education offered in schools and universities. Meanwhile, it is beneficial to review and reflect on what has been done and what can be improved for the new school year. This paper aims to present feedback of English as Second Language (ESL) students and teachers in Vietnam who have been adapting ERT in some periods over the course of two years. A survey among ESL teachers was conducted via Google form and follow-up questions and clarifications were communicated through an interview. Meanwhile, the students' feedback were gathered through a collaborative web platform. The responses were coded and arranged according to themes through content analysis. The themes will be used in the identification and discussion of good practices and problems encountered during the recent ERT delivery. In this way, teachers who are still engaged and will continuously be into ERT will be able to gain insights from the teaching and learning experiences of others.
