We believe that the best way to learn English is to be immersed in American language, lifestyle, and culture.

IHC's four week summer programs tailor the curriculum to each student's needs, whether a beginner, intermediate, or advanced. The courses are designed to start at any level and for students to make rapid progress.

The program includes morning English language classes with a degreed instructor (native English speaker) and teacher's aide and fun afternoon activities on the island of Oahu. A limited number of optional homestays are available for high school students.

Classes take place on the campus of St. Andrew's Priory School in downtown Honolulu, an easy 10-15 minute ride from Waikiki.
