International House World Organisation
The International House World Organization (IHWO) is one of the largest and oldest groups of language schools in the world. Founded in 1953, we are a global network of over 150 affiliated private language schools in 52 countries, spanning every continent.
Whether you choose to learn English, or one of 30 other languages available, all of our schools are committed to delivering the very highest standards in teaching, facilities and customer care.
Our schools teach English and a wide variety of other languages and are all independently owned and run:
- Quality is at the core of everything we do. Only schools that meet our exceptional quality standards are allowed to use the International House brand.
- International House pioneered Teacher Training programmes for English as a Foreign Language (EFL) and our courses and centers remain some of the most sought after in the industry.
- International House teachers write the course books. Many of the course books used today by ELT teachers are written by teaching experts trained by International House. These include Headway, Cutting Edge, Language To Go, Natural Grammar and Fountain.
Commitment to quality
All schools are inspected prior to affiliation and if they do not meet our exacting quality standards they cannot use the International House brand. This ensures that International House remains a name that both students and teachers can trust.
All IH schools share a quality commitment to our clients and staff. We want our clients to achieve their aspirations and open new horizons by learning with International House, and we want our staff to be a part of a team which supports students progress and achieve.
All IH schools are inspected regularly to ensure that students have the best school in which to learn, and that teachers and staff have the best environment to work in. Our objective is to ensure that staff and students can trust all International House schools regardless of their city and country.
In inspections we not only check what schools are doing now, but encourage them to keep up to date and lead the industry with innovations.
The IH Promises say what quality will mean to you – either as a client or a member of staff.
International House affiliates benefit from idea sharing and networking opportunities within the organization and beyond. They are invited to International House conferences, events and workshops and have access to a wealth of shared teaching, management and publicity materials.
Head office support
Administrative support and all membership services for affiliates are provided by the IHWO headquarters in London. This company operates separately from the International House London School and acts solely in the interests of affiliate shareholders.
