New Italian IH Affiliate: IH Schio-Vicenza

The announcement of a new IH affiliate school in Italy has brought excitement to the International House network. IH Schio-Vicenza, located in northern Italy, is a community school directed by Julie Wallis, who is also known as the President of the Italian Association of Language Schools, AISLi.

Originally established in 1987 as The London School of Languages by Angela Chard, the school saw significant growth under the leadership of Julie Wallis, who joined in 1993 when there were just 29 students.

Emma Hoyle, Managing Director of IH World, expressed enthusiasm for the addition of IH Schio-Vicenza to the network, stating, "Julie and all the team at IH Schio-Vicenza will bring so much to the International House network. Their dedication to quality, their students, and their employees chimes perfectly with IH values."

IH Schio-Vicenza's reputation for quality education is underscored by its multiple accreditations, including those from the Veneto region, AISLi, EAQUALS, Cambridge English, and authorization from the Italian Ministry of Education.

The school offers a diverse range of courses, including adult and young learner programs at their modern premises in Schio, Veneto. Additionally, they provide numerous off-site and online courses for businesses and state schools in the region, a venture that began in 1999 with the 'Progetto Lingue 2000'.

In mid-2020, the school relocated to its current contemporary property in Schio, showcasing careful planning and attention to detail in its layout and design. The school's offerings encompass General, Business, and Exam preparation courses for English, French, Spanish, and German, accommodating a wide range of age groups, from adults to very young learners. IH Schio-Vicenza also serves as a teacher training center, offering courses for educators at all levels.

The school's commitment to fostering cultural exchange and interpersonal communication is evident through its innovative Language Café, designed to enhance students' speaking and listening skills outside of traditional classes. Students have the opportunity to engage in themed conversation sessions, promoting fluency and the exchange of ideas and experiences.

IH Schio-Vicenza aligns closely with IH values, boasting a diverse team of highly professional and qualified language teachers who prioritize the needs of their learners. Interactive teaching methods tailored to individual learning styles are a hallmark of the school's approach. Teachers regularly participate in training courses and seminars, reflecting the school's belief in lifelong learning for both clients and staff.

IH Schio-Vicenza's dedication to excellence in education and professional development aligns seamlessly with the International House network's principles. The network eagerly anticipates the contributions IH Schio-Vicenza will bring while also looking forward to the benefits the school will gain from being an IH member. This exciting new partnership marks the beginning of a promising journey ahead.
