     This year celebrates 24 years of successful business

Foreign Language School Interlingua International House - the leader in modern teaching methods in the region, celebrates its 24 years of existence in 2012. The school was founded by Mr Edin Hadzic in 1988, as the first private Center that provided services of teaching foreign languages in ex YU region. Since the founding itself the main objective of the school was to provide high-quality teaching of foreign languages, secure competent staff as well as top-quality materials. The realization of these objectives started with great enthusiasm. Aside from a few very strong public institutions for foreign languages, at that time, the job of Interlingua Manager was not easy at all. Taking into account that the school was the first private center, it became very attractive for the market at the time and became competitive very soon. The school has not interrupted its work, it even remained alone on the market in certain periods which offered more opportunities for making new experiences with the meaning of more modern teaching of foreign languages.

Mr Hadzic knew how to recognize the given opportunity and he succeeded with the help of his associates to get one step closer to the EU standards. Consequently there was a successful collaboration with a few language schools from London. In 2000, 2002 and 2005 Mr Hadzic went to London on more occasions and after successful negotiation succeeded  in getting the attention of the managers in IHWO International House World Organization. As a result the school joins this Organization in the end of 2005. After 7 years our school step out from IHWO and keep going all standards without them since it was and will stay our main goal.
