About the school and city

In response to the COVID-19 situation, we are now offering a 100% online CELTA. This is still fully approved and validated by Cambridge English . In terms of content, course structure and daily schedule, the online CELTA differs very little from the face-to-face format, only that the training and teaching take place over the internet.

Look below for 100% online courses.

IH Budapest opened in 1988 – we’ve been teaching languages and training teachers for more than 30 years. We’ve moved location three times, but we are still in the same neighbourhood of Buda.

We are very central, next to next to Széll Kálmán Square, a key transport hub in Buda.

IH Budapest has always had a great reputation for teacher training, and in terms of English teaching the school has always covered the full range of adults, young learners, company classes and exam preparation courses.

Managed by Judit Varady, IH Budapest maintains a wonderfully diverse teaching team and student base that makes it an interesting school to work and study at. The different departments of the school all work together to make it a success: happy students and a loyal staff.
