International House Córdoba is known locally as Academia Británica, and was founded in 1953 by John and Brita Haycraft. IH Córdoba has an excellent reputation locally and we pride ourselves on the quality of our language services. In 2010 we opened a second school in the city which is a tribute to our success.
At International House Córdoba our aims are to:
Provide language services of an excellent quality to our clients, whether they are adults, teenagers or children.
Achieve excellent results in examinations we prepare students for.
Innovate and constantly improve our services.
Encourage our teachers to develop professionally.
Our students are made up of:
Working adults and university students learning languages to help their job prospects or for pleasure.
Secondary school students aged 12-17 (some of whom are beginners).
Primary and pre-primary students aged 4-11.
The two Schools:
Academia Británica Centro
The original school is located in the town centre. It is divided over two typical Andalusian houses with interior patios. English is the main language taught and there are also French and German classes and an independent Spanish department known as Academia Hispanica. There are 20 classrooms in total and 17 English teachers, 2 German teachers and 2 French teachers.
There is a well equipped staffroom, computer room, study centre/library and offices for the DOS, Young Learners coordinator and Teens Coordinator.
Academia Británica Sierra
The new school is located in a residential area twenty minutes from the city centre. It is a modern purpose-built ground floor building with 11 classrooms, a study centre, offices for the Young Learners coordinator and DOS and a well-equipped staffroom with kitchen facilities. There are 9 full-time teachers, a librarian and 2 admin staff. English is the main language taught but there are also some German and French classes.
The schools actively encourage professional development and as part of International House’s philosophy of being innovative, all teachers have access to interactive whiteboards.
