Other Languages

Our modern foreign language courses are designed for students of all ages, levels and learning styles. The classes we offer suit all levels and are taught in groups, one-to-one or in-company.

What distinguishes us from other language schools is that our lessons are taught in the target language (no or very little English is used) which we believe and is proven to be the best way to learn a language. Students will feel immersed in the language of their choice and put at ease by our qualified, experienced, native or near-native teachers. 

IH Bristol is part of a worldwide group of more than 150 language schools that are passionate about providing excellence in language courses. With over 25 years' experience, we are sure to deliver a professional service.

The school holds accreditations from the British Council as well as EAQUALS.
