International House in the world

The International House World Organisation (IHWO) is a network of language schools worldwide that are committed to implementing high standards of quality and innovation in education and training. There are currently over 140 schools in more than 40 countries.

International House was founded in 1953 by John and Brita Haycraft, with the aim of providing an innovative approach to language teaching.IH has remained at the forefront of development in the field of language teaching and in the training of language teachers.

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.

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 communications by teaching English - today's international language - to over 50,000 people worldwide.

Learning other languages

Many International House schools teach a range of languages in addition to English. They offer a broad spectrum of courses tailored to the needs of both general and business clients.
