¡Bienvenido IH Cali!

We are delighted to announce that we have a new community school joining the IH network in Latin America. Join us in welcoming International House Cali.

IH Cali is a new school owned by Ariel Lopez. Many of you will know or have met Ariel, he owns various International House schools in Mexico.

“Latin America is an important market in the language education industry and we are thrilled to have a new IH school in the enchanting city of Cali,” remarked Emma Hoyle, Managing Director of International House World Organisation. “Ariel Lopez has had such success with his International House schools in Mexico and we are excited to see the success of this new venture in Colombia. We hope the exam preparation courses, in-business corporate language training and exam centre services of the school will be an asset to the people of Cali.”

Exam Preparation, Exam Centre & In-Business Courses

The new community school is primarily focused on providing exam preparation courses and operating as an IELTS and Cambridge Exam Centre. IH Cali offers IELTS preparation courses both face-to-face and online. They offer Cambridge Assessment exams mostly offsite in local schools and colleges. As well as group courses, there is also a one-to-one format for individuals who want to prepare at a specific pace. Thirdly, they offer in-company and ESP teaching. These are bespoke language training courses that take place online or face-to-face.

In-school language classes are in small groups, limited to a maximum of 15 students. The school’s courses are mostly directed at adult learners but they also cater to under-18s through their extensive exam preparation offerings. This dynamic school offers the Cali market and surrounding region new opportunities and a reputable education brand with whom to take their international language exams.

Sending Students to IH Study Abroad Schools

As IH Cali joins our valued network, they want to play an important role in supporting other IH schools too. The school aims to recruit students from the Cali region who would like to follow a language course abroad. The team will make the connection between the student and the IH school where they would like to study. So, if you’re interested in acquiring more students from the Cali region, be sure to get in touch!

A Modern School in a Leafy Cali Neighborhood

This well-equipped school is nestled into the tree-lined streets of Ciudad Jardín, a residential neighbourhood in the south of the city. The premises include 6 classrooms, a large social area for staff and students, a peaceful garden, a computer lab and a reception area. The classrooms have state-of-the-art technology to facilitate teaching, they come equipped with computers, Smart TVs and whiteboards. The purpose-built computer lab is used for Cambridge and IELTS examinations.

The City

Cali is a magical city, south of Medellín, known for its vibrant salsa scene. It’s the third-largest city in Colombia with a population of just over 3,570,795. The magical city has a rich history and a competitive language education market. IH Cali taps into the high demand for exam preparation courses, centres for exams and bespoke corporate classes.

We are delighted to see the number of International House schools growing in Latin America. The more schools we have in our network, the more our brand grows and the more it gets recognised. This is a valuable benefit for all schools in the network, both community and study abroad.
