  • Raising language education standards

    Throughout International House’s network of schools around the world there is a unified commitment to the highest standards of education and a determination to raise the standards of language teaching.

    Promoting international understanding

    Through our language training activities we develop communication and understanding between people across the world. Learning a language develops the process of seeing the world from another perspective – a genuine route to international understanding.

    Learning English

    We are making a significant contribution to global communication by teaching English - today's first international language - to over 50,000 people worldwide.

    Learning other languages

    Many International House schools teach a range of languages in addition to English: French, Spanish, German, Italian, Russian, Arabic, Chinese etc... They offer a broad spectrum of courses tailored to the needs of both general and business clients.

    Training materials

    International House staff have been involved in the writing of numerous best-selling textbooks and have contributed to a wide range of publications in the field of language teaching.

    Consultancy Services

    By drawing upon our global exposure, the depth of our human resources and a wide range of professional expertise, International House is uniquely placed to provide consultancy services in teacher training, teacher recruitment, school management and the development of course materials.

    Teacher Training

    International House developed the first training courses for teachers of English and has continued to innovate both in pre-service training and teacher development. Globally, the language teachers that we train are acknowledged as amongst the most able, creative and authoritative within their profession. Our teacher training programmes are a hallmark of excellence and outstanding professionalism.

    IH Teacher Training Centres have a special commitment to working with teachers whose first language is not English, creating career opportunities for teachers from different backgrounds and working to improve the quality of language teaching provision in the state system.
