Homestay English Immersion course

IH InTuition header

Improving your level of English quickly requires an immersion in the language and culture, and what better way to achieve this than living in your English teacher’s home?

IH InTuition Languages logo

International House London has partnered with IH InTuition Languages to place students in the homes of English language teachers where they live and study, receiving properly structured one-to-one lessons in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

As with normal homestays, students join in conversations at mealtimes experiencing English culture first-hand, with the added bonus of their host being a qualified English teacher.

Using English every day with your teacher both in structured lessons and socially helps you improve faster.
