The history of International House Milano

International House Milan was founded as Centro Lingue Tradint in 1982 by Sieglinde Wolkan and Claudio Tedesco in San Donato Milanese, Milan.

In 1997 a second school was opened in Milan city centre, just a stone’s throw from the Duomo Cathedral and the school became affiliated to the International House World Organisation, the international organisation set up in 1953, renowned throughout the world for it’s high standards of quality and professionalism it expects from its affiliated language schools.

The history of International House Milano

Founded in 1953 by John and Brita Haycraft, International House World Organization is one of the largest and oldest networks of language schools in the world. The International House network is currently present in 52 different countries and on every continent with over 160 affiliated language schools.

A high-quality language school

The quality guaranteed by International House is the result of the experience and know-how of its teachers. At the heart of everything there is a concept of constant development and enrichment, fulfilled by the constant and systematic training of our teachers.

All our teachers are native speakers or bilingual, with certifications for language teaching such as CELTA, DELTA or equivalent, and all are experienced in their field of specialization.

Our teachers take part in periodic refresher courses on teaching methods and techniques for approaching students with the aim of constantly improving their quality as teachers. If you want to be the best teacher, you never stop learning!

To complete the picture, our didactic management establishes the content of all courses, periodically observes the lessons, coordinates and supports the teachers and makes sure that everything goes as planned.

International House Milano and the environment

International House joins Greta Thunberg’s protest against environmental degradation, and has decided to do its part as best as possible. Preempting the timing of politics, starting from April 11, 2019 we have delivered completely recyclable PET bottles to all our students, so that they can always carry the bottles with them. We have also replaced the disposable plastic cups of the hot drink dispensing machines with biodegradable cups.

It is only a small step toward a more ecological approach, but we hope it will serve as an example and incentive for everyone who knows us and frequents us.
