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
Our language teaching enables us to promote communication and understanding between people across the world. Learning a language enables you to see the world from another perspective – a genuine route to international understanding.
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, including French, Spanish, German, Italian, Russian, Arabic and Chinese. They offer a broad spectrum of courses tailored to the needs of both the general public and business clients.
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.
By drawing upon our global exposure, our depth of human resources and a wide range of professional expertise, International House is able to provide unique consultancy services in teacher training, teacher recruitment, school management and the development of course materials.
International House developed the first training courses for English teachers and has continued to innovate both in pre-service training and in teaching itself. The language teachers that we train are globally acknowledged as being 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.
