About INTERNATIONAL HOUSE – NEW YORK

International House (IH) is one of the largest groups of language schools, teaching English and 25 modern languages in 150 schools in more than 50 countries 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 to language teaching. 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, which was 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 businesses, 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 and the raising of teacher-training standards worldwide.

    I took the CPE exam at IH New York, and I am glad I did. Since I could't attend the preparation course in NYC I took distant lessons to prepare for the exam. I spoke every week days for two months with my teacher to talk about my work and practice and also prepare for the Speaking Paper. I have been very impressed by the professionalism and efficiency of the staffs at IH. From the very first contact by e-mail until exam day every thing went very smoothly. Everyone has been incredibly helpful, knowledgeable and gave me invaluable advice. Thank you.

    I loved my experience at IH because it taught me to open my mind to others, because in class I was with people from different countries and also because my awesome American teachers helped me to see how important it was to understand the culture of the language you learn.
