International House was founded in 1953 to provide an innovative approach to language teaching. Today the International House World Organization (IHWO) is a network of over 159 schools in more than 52 countries.

All of our schools are independently owned and managed, but all adhere to the same codes of practice and follow rigorous inspections to ensure they all offer the same high quality education and customer service around the world.

IH schools are all committed to implementing the highest standards of education and training and have an enduring determination to raise the standards of language teaching.

IH has remained at the forefront of development in the field of language teaching and in the training of language teachers. Our teacher training programs carry a hallmark of excellence and outstanding professionalism.

Over the past 60 years, IH teachers have attained the renowned reputation of being amongst the most highly trained, creative and respected instructors within their profession. Many successful English language teaching books have been written by IH teachers past and present.
