The International House World Organisation (IHWO) is one of the largest and oldest group of language schools in the world. Founded in 1953, it is a global network of over 150 affiliated private language schools in 52 countries, spanning every continent. Our schools teach a wide variety of languages and are all independently owned and run. Quality is at the core of everything we do. All schools are inspected prior to affiliation to ensure they meet the exceptional requirements of our Quality Charters; once affiliated, the schools continue to be inspected every one to three years, depending on how recently they joined the organization. Staff and students can trust International House schools to demonstrate a uniform commitment to quality across any city, country or continent. As an International House affiliate, we are proud of our excellent teaching quality. A full-time Director of Studies coordinates and supervises all our experienced native speaker teachers.
