Learning English is important for your kids' future

Petra And, because it is, we hire only the best teachers, trained specifically to teach English as a second or foreign language at the many different levels we offer.

The classes are in small groups and totally in English from Day 1.

Learning a language at International House will be a fun, gratifying experience. Our young learners will find themselves in a stimulating, motivating environment, where they'll be actively participating in every class.

How we evaluate progress

The methodology we use is project-based learning, which motivates young learners to use English as a means of communication from the word “go”.

For Kids, Juniors and Teens we have short, termly progress tests.

Parents get progress reports and we have parent/teacher meetings in February or March.

Cambridge English exams for Young Learners

From the age of 8, children can (optionally) take Cambridge English exams, which we run in-school.

The Young Learners tests are a great way to stimulate children’s learning and to see how they are progressing.

For children aged 8 to 12 there are two possible tests, Starters and Movers. They are practical, with a fun element that keeps young learners motivated without putting them under undue stress. Everyone gets a diploma showing what level they have reached in Listening, Reading & Writing and Speaking.

These first tests are a natural step to prepared young learners for the challenges of the examinations designed for university students and adults that come later (KET, PET, First Certificate and Advanced), which are recognsed around the world.
