International House World Organization is now one of the world’s major language school networks. When John and Brita Haycraft established the organisation in 1953, they main aim was to organise communicative and practical courses with professional, motivated and dedicated teachers. Nowadays, IHWO is present in 52 countries with 160 schools, who all work closely together. They help each other via the sharing of the up-to-date teaching methodologies, the distribution of new professional materials and even the movement of teaching staff.


In 1983, IH Budapest became the first member in Central-Eastern Europe to open its doors. Nowadays, our schools on the Buda and Pest side play a key role in the Hungarian language teaching market with its three main profiles:


We are proud of our business partners - many of them are among the most important firms and institutions in the country. We teach market-leading companies from the IT sector, pharmaceutical industry and building trade, and we also have prominent clients from the fields of government and finance.

The co-operation with both our long-term and new business partners is flourishing, because it is important for us to meet the high standards and expectations of our clients, providing them our most suitable and highly professional services.


IH Budapest is not only a language school but a teacher training centre as well. Trainee teachers come from all over the world to learn the techniques methods of their profession. Graduating with certificates from the University of Cambridge, CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) and DELTA (Diploma in English Language Teaching to Adults), with these qualifications they are able to teach at any prominent language school in the world.


From private lessons to general language group courses and even exam preparation programmes, IH Budapest offers a wide range of services.

Thanks to online platforms, students can reach us and participate in lessons from all over the world. This also means that international students, not only Hungarians, are able to choose our reliable, world-renowned brand.

We offer flexible, communication-focused courses with professional and modern teachers. At IH Budapest it is important for us to encourage our teachers to develop professionally while also enabling our students to achieve their goals.

Using the name International House is not just a title for us, but also an honour and a commitment in the world of language teaching. As an IH World member, our work is closely examined and we are inspected by the central office in London on a regular basis, so it is compulsory that we meet their strict professional requirements. Our teachers attend weekly professional seminars and are frequently observed by educational management, who evaluate lessons in order to ensure the high quality of our courses.

All of our teachers are native(-level) English speakers from other countries, and many of them travel around the world from one IH school to another spending varying lengths of time in each country.

IH Budapest is also a certified member of the Hungarian Professional Association of Language Schools (NYESZE) and as a result we are fully licensed and qualified to offer services in foreign language teaching.

We are able to offer online and contact lessons for the full range of our teaching profiles. Our up-to-date methods and modern teaching materials with online applications and study-aids ensure that our lessons are more interesting and interactive both inside and outside of the classroom.
