Languages Taught

Languages are an important part of the learning experience at BIS Hanoi, helping prepare your child for success in our globalised world. We support your child to become a formidable communicator in English and at least one other language.

As the world becomes increasingly interconnected, a command of multiple languages will be an asset for your child’s future. Beyond conversing with others, learning languages also promotes international mindedness by building your child’s understanding of other cultures and perspectives.

English is the main language of communication and instruction throughout the school. We can offer support to students learning English as an Additional Language.

Students also have the opportunity to study additional languages including Vietnamese, French, Spanish and German with specialist teachers from Year 1 until they leave our school.

Additionally, we offer several extra-curricular activities which support your child’s international learning. Japanese Beginners and Learning Basic Korean give your child the opportunity to study further languages and several ECAs teach about culture around the world, such as International Club, Vietnamese Culture, Vietnamese Traditional Games, and Italian Cookery Club.


We believe it is important for our Vietnamese students to preserve their mother tongue and so until Year 7, they must study Vietnamese to develop their understanding of their native language and culture. At this point, they can choose to continue with their Vietnamese studies or choose to learn another Modern Foreign Language.
