International House London was founded in 1953 by John and Brita Haycraft, and is renowned as one of the best language schools in the world. In 1964 they set up a non-profit-making Educational Trust committed to raising the standards of English language teaching and training world-wide. In 1962 International House London was the first school to introduce a formalised teacher training qualification, known today as the CELTA course. Today International House
London welcomes over 7,000 students
from over 150 countries around the world.
