Develop your English

Our courses are designed to build your confidence and ability in the four language skills: reading; writing; listening and speaking. You will also develop your use of grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation. We adapt our lessons to the needs of the class and supplement the use of textbooks with authentic materials including digital resources and news articles.

Our English courses are taught at our state-of-the-art language school by skilled and experienced teaching staff. Our teachers are experts in motivating you to develop your skills and confidence.

We favour small classes with an average of 10 students per class to ensure teachers can provide the support you need.

All English language courses at International House London are accredited by the British Council's Accreditation UK quality assurance scheme.
