Learn with International House and Achieve Your Goals and Ambitions

Our schools are independently owned and managed and they are all committed to the very highest standards in language education.

International House has been the bench mark for language teaching and training in Lisbon since 1963. One of the first members of the fledgling International House World Organisation, IH Lisbon quickly established itself in the forefront of teacher training: offering the revolutionary International House Certificate and then – after this qualification was adopted by the Royal Society of Arts and, later, by the University of Cambridge – the CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults). Apart from CELTA, we offer a broad range of training and development courses and run a Teachers’ Centre for teachers who enjoy discussion and debate in English.

In 2017, we joined forces with International House Torres Vedras and moved into new premises in Alto dos Moinhos. As the IHTVL team, we pride ourselves on the quality of what we do and the care with which we do it. We are proud members of the International House World Organisation (IHWO).

We are an official examination centre for Cambridge Assessment and offer regular sessions of all of the Mainsuite exams: Key, Preliminary, First, Advanced and Proficiency. We also arrange sessions of the YLE exams in primary schools, on request.

We offer English courses in companies and private schools, as well as exam preparation and adult courses in our own well-equipped classrooms.

You can trust the global network of International House schools to provide the expertise and support you need to succeed in a positive and enjoyable environment.

We’d love to hear from you!

The goals set are always clear and achievable, the sessions are impeccably planned, creative material and effective resources are used and the teacher trainers easily create an engaging environment. Moreover, these sessions are always an excellent opportunity to refresh my language skills and to challenge my teaching routines."

  • "No meu caso tive aulas particulares porque precisava de melhorar rapidamente o meu nível de Inglês "falado" tendo em conta que tinha uma entrevista de emprego em que o inglês era um dos requisitos. Tive a sorte de ter uma professora com a disponibilidade e os recursos específicos para o cargo a que eu estava a concorrer trazendo para as aulas material de apoio específico com exercícios e manuais de acordo com o que eu pretendia."

    Pedro Vieira, 27 anos Professor de Golfe
