IH Young Learners Conference 2023

17-18 November 2023

November is around the corner, which can only mean one thing... the YL conference is back!

In this very special 70th anniversary year, we are delighted to return to the school where IH was born, International House Cordoba! The event will take place on the 17th and 18th of November.

We will welcome YL coordinators and senior teachers from the IH network to Cordoba to attend plenary sessions, workshops and presentations from IH speakers.

This is a key event to share practical classroom ideas as well as managerial content. It's an opportunity to share old and new ideas, explore principles and procedures of YL teaching and collaborate with the wonderful IH YL community. 

The event will be held at:
