International Hospitality Center


The International Hospitality Center (IHC), is a private, community-based volunteer organization that was founded in 1976.

"We provide a variety of cross-cultural experiences, homestays, English language study and professional training to sponsored exchange students and government and foundation grantees."

With more than 1,000 community volunteers, it is possible to bring global living and learning experiences in Hawai'i and on the continental U.S.

Join us for the 42nd year of IHC’s English Language program in beautiful Honolulu, Hawaiʻi! 


Small class size ensures individualized attention and allows students to start at their own level and make rapid progress. 

Spoken and conversational English is emphasized. The curriculum is keyed to the practical experience of living and adapting to life in Hawaii and the U.S. Reading, writing and grammar are also included.
