CELTA... one of the most enriching experiences I have had in my life. Rae


Cambridge Diploma in English Language Teaching to Adults

A major step up from CELTA, DELTA is designed for people who have several years' experience of teaching English...

Part-time (October-March) and full-time (July and August) options.

That's the difference between CELTA and DELTA: on DELTA courses, teaching is what people do, that's what they're good at, and they just want to get better. Emma

Foundation TEFL course Our foundation course is intended for those with no, or very little, previous teaching experience who wish to discover what is involved in language teaching before committing to a fuller qualification.

Language Analysis for English teachers Our online language analysis course combines analysis of major linguistic areas selected by our tutors and discussion of linguistic areas selected by participants.

What I enjoyed about all of the modules was their practicality. I also liked the fact that we had to create lessons and discuss them and not only reading boring theory. Sanae
