Course location

International House New York

International House (IH) is one of the largest groups of language schools in the world, and has been teaching English and 25 modern languages worldwide since 1953. The International House World Organization (IHWO) is a network of language schools worldwide that are committed to implementing high standards of quality and innovation in education and training.

International House was founded in 1953 with the aim of providing an innovative approach for learning English and other langauges. The founders, John and Brita Haycraft, were themselves teachers who sought to promote international understanding through language learning and teacher training. Haycraft introduced the first training program for teachers of English as a Foreign Language (EFL), which blended teaching theory and practice. This course, developed at International House, was the forerunner of the Cambridge ESOL Certificate of English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA).

The International House World Organization is today made up of 150 schools in over 50 countries worldwide. Although these are independent schools, they all share the same philosophy and teaching approach. The aims of International House remain essentially the same as in Haycraft's day, with a dedication to promoting international understanding through education, provide great environments to learn English and take foreign-language classes and the raising of teacher-training standards worldwide.

International House New York is proud to be part of the IH World Organization.
