English and World Language Classes

International House Davis offers two types of Language Classes.

Registered Language Instruction Classes offer a structured, progressive learning environment for students. Classes are offered to both members and non-members, I-House members receive a discount on the class fee.

Drop-In Conversation Classes are free for I-House members only. These classes allow for practice of language skills.  Those who need language instruction or a progressive learning environment should attend Registered Language Instruction Classes. I-House members can join these conversation-based classes at any time — no preregistration is needed! Become an I-House Member. 

Children 14 years and younger MUST be accompanied by parents or guardians.
