10° Annual Conference
“Mind Games, Learning about People and not only Language”
At the start of every academic year, International House Milan organises a conference for teachers from the state and private schools sector. We can proudly say that our conference, dedicated to the teaching of languages, attracts internationally renowned speakers. A day replete with interesting and inspiring ideas and an occasion to meet friends and other teachers like yourself in an informal and enthusiastic setting.
Our 2017 conference “Mind Games, Learning about People and not only Language” took place on Friday the 13th of October.
The speakers invited to mark our tenth anniversary guided us through the discovery of new ways of understanding ourselves and our learners, enabling us to empathise and tune in with their needs and wishes based on the awareness that we are all first and foremost people. Our speakers were: Mr. Jon Hird, Mr. Sam McCarter, Ms. Silvana Richardson, Mr. Simon Ward.
The afternoon sessions are usually held by the teachers of International House Milan who share their many years of experience teaching kids and teenagers.

There was also the opportunity to visit the stands of other IH schools in Europe and some of the main ELT publishers.
Our school provides participants with an attendance certificate recognised by the Ministry of Education for teacher training. Enrolment is free but limited places available.
We regularly organise open days focused on the Cambridge English exams, which teachers from state and private schools are welcome to attend. Our open days offer teachers the chance to keep up to date on the latest methods for teaching English and offer an opportunity for teachers to share experiences and exchange views.
Furthermore, as a member of the International House schools network, we provide constant training and refresher courses for our teachers. Refresher sessions are organised on a weekly basis to ensure that the knowledge and methods adopted by our teachers are continuously improving.
