About the school and City

Become a part of International House Moscow! It’s a great chance to develop your managerial and teaching skills as part of IH, the organization which is the home of the ''communicative method". Our DOSes and ADoSes provide personalised support with lesson planning and teacher development throughout the year. We have a wide range of classes ranging from YL to in-company and business, from complete beginners to exam preparation classes.

There are few countries in the world with as much to offer in the way of culture as Russia. Apart from the Kremlin and the Bolshoi Theatre, the famous Russian sights everyone knows about, and world-class galleries, such as the Tretyakov and the Pushkin Museum, Moscow has many other less well-known tourist attractions. Even if you were to visit one every weekend, you would still not have scratched the surface of Moscow's history after a nine-month stay.

You will have a chance to visit numerous historical sites in Russia’s two capitals Moscow and St. Petersburg as well as the ancient towns of the Golden Ring. For instance, you can take a sightseeing bus tour from Moscow to Vladimir (a 900-year-old Russian city some 200 km north-east of Moscow) for as little as $75. Entrance fees to Russian museums, exhibition halls and entertainment parks are also surprisingly low and cost between $5-10.

Established in 1992, BKC-International House has since grown into the largest language school in Russia and Eastern Europe. It is considered the most reputable and established language school in Moscow. Over the years we've been providing our students with quality language courses, as well as our international teachers with excellent opportunities for professional development.
