IH Riviera Maya was opened in 2004, as a joint project between IH Barcelona and IH Mexico City. The school has become an important centre for language teaching, teacher training, study tours and related activities in Mexico.
There are four main areas of activity in the school:
Teaching Spanish to students from all over the world
Teaching other languages (mainly English) to the local population
Training teachers of Spanish and English
Sending students from Mexico to study languages abroad
IH Riviera Maya has a number of local people studying English in the school, so there is plenty of opportunity for our students of Spanish to meet native Spanish speakers, make friends and improve their fluency outside the classroom, in the bar, at social events, etc.
We also have an out-going programme, sending students to study language courses in different countries. This helps us to see things from the learner’s point of view. In other words, we know from our own experience what sort of issues tend to concern students most, and this helps us to ensure that the students who come to study Spanish with us are given the necessary help, care and attention.
IH Barcelona was founded in 1972 and has since grown into a major centre for Spanish and English language teaching, teacher training (for both Spanish and English teachers), study tours and related activities.
Founded in 1953, International House is a network of more than 130 schools around the world, all committed to the highest standards in education and business.
A key aim of International House is to raise the standards of language teaching around the world. One important way in which we do this is through Teacher Training courses for which International House has a world-wide reputation. We train our own (as well as many other schools’) teachers to enable language students to learn the language of their choice simply, quickly and efficiently in a rich linguistic and cultural environment.
To ensure that every school maintains the high standards that are specified in the Affiliation Agreement, an external assessor visits each school every two years and conducts a thorough investigation into all aspects of the school’s activities. These visits ensure that the unparalleled reputation International House enjoys for the quality of its services is safeguarded.
