General English

Students who want individual tuition to focus on their specific goals and needs, at their own preferred pace. One-to-one lessons can be booked as a full course or added to any other IH London courses. The lessons can be delivered in London or online.

Our story

Our story began in 1953, with our founders John Haycraft (CBE) and his wife Brita Haycraft who started a school because they believed in international communication and building communities across cultures.
