IHECS Academy uses a dynamic learning process that values ​​the pedagogical quality of its teachers, which is why we guarantee that:

  • Each teacher is a native speaker.
  • Each teacher modulates their courses in order to alternate theory and practice in a balanced way, while remaining focused on the concrete use of the language in context.
  • Teachers’ educational approaches take place in a context of collegial exchanges.
  • Teachers give great importance in following-up with the learner throughout his/her learning path thus offering the student the possibility to learn all levels of a language if he/she wishes to, allowing a continuous and coherent learning process.
