School Profile

International House Benghazi (formerly The Success English Institute) welcomes more than one thousand students every year from all over Libya and various other countries.

IHB strives to provide an energetic and culturally diverse atmosphere which allows students to meet and get to know others from various cultural backgrounds.

IHB provides training courses for individuals, companies and government institutions and has become synonymous with the application of the latest curriculums and programs in language teaching and teacher training.

Our customers can choose courses that fit their needs from a variety of options that we provide such as courses in General English and Cambridge exam preparation courses.

We also offer a list of courses that have been prepared according to the needs of English for specific purpose students and/ or businessmen.

IH Benghazi is the only Authorised Cambridge ESOL Centre in the East of Libya. The centre promotes Cambridge ESOL Examinations which are the world’s leading range of certificates for English learners and taken each year by more than two million people in 130 countries.

The General English Section accepts students from the age of sixteen and up and each class has a maximum of sixteen students. We also offer special courses for ages 12-15 designed to suit their age and meet their needs. Course lengths range from 8-9 weeks with an average of 3 (2 –hour) classes per week.

We also offer intensive one month courses (every day except Friday and Saturday) during the morning period.

All our teachers have either achieved the IH Certificate or the equivalent CELTA. A number of our teachers are also certified Cambridge ESOL Oral Examiners.

The Institute holds a weekly workshop directed at keeping teachers motivated and up to date with different aspects related to English language teaching.

The Institute is housed in a three-floor building and includes twelve classrooms which are all equipped with air-conditioning units, TVs and CD /DVD players.

The Institute also provides opportunities for learning outside the classroom using the latest technologies, such as an up- to-date computer laboratory.

Students in the Pre-intermediate and higher levels are allotted one free Speaking Practice lesson per week which gives them the opportunity to develop their verbal skills with their peers in the open air cafeteria.
