About IH London

Why choose us?



All our in-company language classes are fully bespoke and are based on a consultation where we analyse the needs of our clients in detail. We listen to what they would like to achieve, what their current capabilities are, and discuss the most practical, cost-effective way of working together. We subsequently create a proposal which details: learning objectives and outcomes; course design and delivery; class reporting and feedback; review and assessment processes; and full costs. This can be discussed and amended as our clients require.

We offer in-company classes in eleven different languages. Lessons can cover general language,
or be industry specific and tailored to
clients’ business needs.

Classes can take place at IH London or at our clients’ place of work. Lessons are timetabled around our clients’ schedules and can be postponed at one full working days’ notice.

A detailed training needs analysis & level testing mean programmes will be ready to hit the ground running from the first session.

Course plans and learning objectives are clearly set and designed to give a clear sense of what will realistically be achieved in the course.

These are shared via the online course management system. There is plenty of flexibility, and plans can be amended as the course progresses and new needs emerge.

All of our teachers are qualified, experienced, native and native-level speakers. We assign the best teachers for your programme by
experience, background and cultural fit. IH London teachers use a modern, communicative approach designed to be practical,  engaging and relevant.

Our teachers are supported by a world-class academic department, on-going professional development and an excellent library of
teaching materials.

All students have free online support, including lesson summaries and materials, extra learning resources, and discussion forums.

The IH London online course management system allows the company to track: lesson attendance; course content; assessment results; feedback; key documents, such as training agreements, needs analysis and level test results.

IH London account managers work with clients to ensure the overall success of their training programme.

Once the course comes to an end, suitable post-course study options will be discussed. These may include self-study, workshops,
online support, or a further period of tuition

Due to the culture and language immersion systems at International House, I was able to learn a new language much faster than I had anticipated. My time at International House not only established a foundation for professional success, but also allowed for personal growth that aided in living in my new country of residence.

Chris, Abercrombie & Fitch

I enjoyed the course very much and I am very happy about the teacher - she is excellent! So much so that I have already recommended her to another colleague here at Travelzoo who would like to take up German lessons!

Raffaele, Travelzoo (Europe) Ltd

The course was brilliant. International House made extensive enquiries beforehand to find out exactly what we wanted so that the programme was entirely bespoke to suit our challenges. The days flew by and were led by a vastly experienced and knowledgeable facilitator.

Jonathan, Speak the Speech

My course was perfect! The best thing was how much I saw myself improve.
