English language teaching at International House Sydney is based on Communicative Language Teaching methodology. The central principles that surround this approach to language teaching are based around students being very active and engaged in the classroom. Lessons are ‘student- centred’ which allows them to participate fully and discover English with their teacher facilitating this process. In order to be successful, students must be motivated through encouragement, and by engaging our students we achieve very positive learning outcomes.

On all of our English programs you will be working on improving your language knowledge. This involves working on your vocabulary, grammar and functional language, broadening your passive and active ability with the English language system. In combination with this we work on also improving your skills in language – speaking, listening, reading and writing. As a result, our English programs will be comprehensive enabling you to better function in an English speaking environment.

To deliver this learning we employ qualified and experienced English language teachers many of whom also work at our centre as teacher trainers. Our centre is modern and well-equipped with comfortable classroom spaces complete with computers and other media.
