International House Teachers

The continued success of International House London is due in no small part to our highly skilled, friendly and knowledgeable teachers. Many of our language teachers are also teacher trainers, bringing to class new and innovative teaching methods and resources. Some members of staff were originally trainees: enjoying the experience so much they stayed on as teachers. A number of leading course books such as Cutting Edge and Headway were written by current or former teachers and trainers at International House London.
