There are at present more than 20 International House (IH) language schools in Spain. Most of these schools concentrate on teaching English to the local population, but eight of them — IH Barcelona, IH Cadiz, IH Madrid, IH Malaga, IH Palma de Mallorca, IH San Sebastian, IH Seville and IH Valencia — are schools that specialize in teaching Spanish to students from all over the world.
In 1998, the IH language schools in Barcelona, Madrid, San Sebastian and Seville formed a consortium called IH España (IH Spain). All four schools shared a common philosophy: we all wanted to offer Spanish courses which exceed our students’ expectations. In January 2005, the original four schools were joined by the IH language center in Palma de Mallorca; in January 2007, by the IH school in Valencia; in May 2010, by CLIC-IH Cadiz; and in June 2017, by CLIC-IH Málaga.
Spanish teacher training
In 2010, IH Barcelona, IH Madrid, IH Cadiz and IH Seville started a joint venture, FormacionELE.com, to provide blended — as well as 100% online — Spanish teacher training courses as an alternative to our traditional, face-to-face teacher training.
Other International House schools
There are 150 IH schools in 50 countries around the world — not just in Spain. Find out more about all IH schools on ihworld.com.
