British International School Hanoi is looking to appoint a Teacher of Spanish, to join our talented and dedicated team of educators from August 2022.

The whole-school Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) department at BIS Hanoi is a collaborative, forward-thinking team consisting of highly motivated teachers who deliver the highest quality learning to our students.  Students commence their MFL journey in Year 1 in our primary school and then choose either French or Spanish at KS3, which are also offered at IGCSE and IBDP. French and Spanish are highly valued subjects by both students and staff, producing strong academic outcomes.
