About the school and City

International House was founded in 1953 when John and Brita Haycraft opened their first language school in Cordoba, Spain. John and Brita sought to promote international understanding through language learning and teaching. In 1959 they established IH London in its first premises in Endell Street, later moving to 40 Shaftesbury Avenue.

In 1962 the school introduced the first training programme for teachers of English as a Foreign Language, which blended teaching theory and practice. Trainees taught real students and were observed by experienced trainers who gave them support and feedback. The language teacher training course developed at IH London was the forerunner of the Cambridge University CELTA qualification and the IH CLTA certificate in French, Spanish and Italian teaching.

In 1964 John and Brita set-up a non-profit-making Educational Trust committed to raising the standards of language teaching world-wide. Since then, we’ve come a long way and were recently ranked by the British Council in the top 1% of language schools in the UK and are known around the world for our commitment to language teaching and teacher training.
