International House London offers modern language courses in Arabic, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Mandarin and Russian.

Evening, weekend and private language courses can be taken at our purpose built language school in Covent Garden, central London.

Business language training courses can be delivered in your company or at our school.



Flexible modern language courses

Our evening language courses are split into ability levels from complete beginner through to advanced learners.

Each language level is divided into four six-week modules designed to follow smoothly on from each other to give a clear sense of progression.

Our modern language modules allow you to take language learning as far as you want to - from a single 6 week course to as many modules in a level as you need.

It takes 24 weeks to complete a level, or 12 weeks if you take a fast track course. 

Modern language classes at IH London

Evening language classes at International House London are dynamic and interactive. Your teacher speaks in the language being taught and uses teaching aids to help you understand.

Emphasis is on spoken communication and interaction, supported by systematic work on grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation.
