Vietnamese at HAIS

HAIS prides itself on Vietnamese values and with that, the school offers two comprehensive Vietnamese language subjects. The Vietnamese language subjects are divided into two learning pathways: One for second-language learners and one for native Vietnamese speakers. Both subjects are learned and developed through literature, history, geography and more. 

With having the Vietnamese language subject, in addition to the main curriculum of the school, HAIS international students become more worldly and integrated with the local culture. HAIS bilingual students still retain their native language and cultural values while also receiving a quality internally-standardized education. Students from both programmes graduate as truly global-citizens. 

VNL - Vietnamese as a Native Language

This programme is for the native Vietnamese students at HAIS, many who are enrolled in the Bilingual Programme. The curriculum is based on the curriculum framework of the Ministry of Education and Training of Vietnam, with focuses on Nationalism, Literature, History, Geography and Lifestyle Education, appropriate for each grade level. 

For primary school students, they learn many of their core subjects in the Vietnamese language, including Mathematics, Lifestyle Education, Vietnamese Language and more. For secondary students, they study Vietnamese language for four periods a week. Their language is developed through the subjects of Literature, History and Geography of Vietnam.

VAL - Vietnamese as an Additional Language

This programme is designed for international students and taught by a team of HAIS Vietnamese teachers, under the direction of HAIS Founder Ms. Tran Hanh An; a linguist, a lecturer, an editor and a book writer, with experiences in the field of Vietnamese language learning for foreigners.

The collection of books is uniquely designed and highly practical; suitable for the age of the students to learn and use Vietnamese in the school or with local people in their out-of-school activities.
