About IH Spain

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 Cadiz, IH Madrid, IH Malaga, 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 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 exceeded our students’ expectations. In January 2005, the original four schools were joined by the IH language center in January 2007, by the IH school in Valencia; in May 2010, by CLIC IH Cadiz; and in June 2017, by CLIC IH Malaga.
