Student Reviews

Words most commonly used to describe this centre


It has been an amazing learning experience - thank you so much!

, CELTA student,

I really enjoyed the practical part of the course including observation and feedback sections. Great experience, intensive and highly recommended for all teachers!!!

, CELTA student,

The course was exceptional and very informative.

, CELTA student,

Every minute of the course was worth it. Practical,useful and very intense.

, CELTA student,

The lesson were well conducted. The tutors were always available to discuss about the next TP or assignment. Thank you to the main tutor for his continue encouragement.

, CELTA student,

The course was extremely challenging. But as a reward it gave me a lot of practical knowledge, new vision and ideas for effective teaching. I'd like to thank my tutors for sharing their knowledge and experience with us and for being open and approachable :)

, CELTA student,

The course was well run and superbly taught.

, CELTA student,

A very intensive, but rewarding experience. The tutors were very supportive, making suggestions for constructive improvement along the way.

, CELTA student,

Good group of tutors and participants. Everyone worked hard to develop further. Tutors were helpful at improving our teaching standards.

, CELTA student,

Super cool and enriching

, CELTA student,

Very intense but worthwhile. The course provided a good general base to start teaching from.

, CELTA student,

I enjoyed the course a lot and I think I learnt a lot, too. There were a few things I thought would be incapplicable in real life to the extent Akcent wanted us to do them (e.g. asking too many ICQs). I would have appreciated being told at the beginning of the course what I need to do to get a Pass A.

, CELTA student,

I thought the course was well-organised and that the quality of the lessons was very good on the whole.

, DELTA student,

Excellent course and well-run by the course coordinator. Very insightful input sessions and very learner-centered approach to instruction overall. I feel a lot more confident on lexis, grammar, discourse, pronunciation and all of the skills, especially writing. Staff are very helpful most of the time, and there is a genuine concern on their behalf for candidates to succeed. However, my main issue with the whole course, and one that needs serious improvement in all of our opinions, is the lack of proper analysis of the two main constituents of the Delta: background essays and lesson plans. At no stage was there a thorough breakdown of these two main components; instead, we all felt that we were simply handed sample essays and sample lesson plans and told to replicate them after a quick chat with our partners. This is not good enough. When teaching a certain genre to learners, it would not be acceptable to simply hand them an example and tell them to get on with it. A thorough systematic analysis of key points needs addressing for such vital components of the course (in reality, only the lesson execution itself is more important). Given that 75% of Delta candidates failed an essay at some stage on the course, a lot more time, energy, resources, analysis and review should have been spent here.

, DELTA student,

The course was intense, but overall, I learned so much. I feel like I was given the tools I will need to be an effective teacher. I had a great experience with my own tutors and the administrative staff was always helpful.

, CELTA student,

I was thoroughly engaged and highly stimulated intellectually by this course. Everything about the course, from the tutors to the facilities, was top-notch. I left with a feeling of immense satisfaction due to the challenges faced and overcome while on the course. I left also with knowledge that will act as a steadfast foundation for my future career. The course has set me up on track to pursue a rewarding and valuble career by giving me the toolkit that I will need to do this. By taking this course I have also discovered the path that I will need to stay on if I wish to make my dream of becoming a good teacher a reality.

, CELTA student,

Very stressful and time constrained, but extremely useful and practical

, CELTA student,

The tutors were great: friendly and approachable, passionate, competent and with a lot of experience in running CELTA courses. The course was very intensive as well as interesting because of the teaching approach. Definitely it was worth doing it for me not having any previous teaching experience. I now feel much more confident about starting a career in teaching English. Thank you Akcent IH!

, CELTA student,

I am so impressed, mostly with the course delivery and the excellent mentoring of the tutors. Michelle and Cathy really showed how to act as facilitator for the students learning.

, CELTA student,

Overall, the course was helpful in providing me with useful tips on how to convey the meaning of vocabulary words and functional language. I learned different ways to plan my lessons and how to present the material.

, CELTA student,

It was perfect, I enjoyed every single day of it.

, CELTA student,

Outstanding tutors, great value and a great place to study.

, CELTA student,

Very good. Demanding but rewarding!

, CELTA student,

The teachers were excellent and the Czech staff were very friendly and highly competent English speakers.

, CELTA student,
