International Village is a place for English education. IV is both traditional brick- and-mortar schooling and an incubator for ideas and programs that are changing the face of English education in Japan. International Village has two physical locations: International Village Youth House (IVYHouse), a dorm and educational center near Huis Ten Bosch in Saebo, Nagasaki; and the Nagasaki Planning Office  in Shindaiku, Nagasaki City. International Village is committed to developing and providing innovative, exciting programs for English education. The teachers for our programs are university students studying Teaching English as a Foreign Language and university students and graduates participating in our teaching internships in Nagasaki. IV has three main components: teacher training, English teaching programs for schools, and English program assessment tools and training.
