Student Reviews

Words most commonly used to describe this centre


The pedagogical side of the course was excellent, and the sessions were clear and informative. Tutors were extremely helpful and always around, even at the weekend. Super friendly and useful feedback. You are set up to succeed. That said, I would say that at administration level, it needed to be better in terms of ensuring there were students for the classes (and the same ones consistently), in particular the externally assessed LSA. It made it very difficult to plan, and I had some issues as a result. It is always difficult with student numbers, but I feel that a lot more effort could be made in this regard (financial incentives). Overall I would definitely recommend the course, with that one caveat.

, DELTA All Modules student,

The Delta course is a lot of work, but the tutors at Akcent have worked hard to arrange the schedule so that it’s as balanced as possible. I learned a lot and felt supported all the way through.

, DELTA Modules 1 & 2 student,

It was a great experience!

, DELTA Modules 1 & 2 student,

The course was as demanding and intense as we were warned that it would be, however the tutors were extremely supportive and provided the framework necessary to ensure our success. They patiently answered our endless questions, pointed us to resources that would enable us to complete our assignments, and gave us detailed feedback to help us improve our teaching practices.

, CELTA student,

Exactly what I was looking for and needed at this point in my career and in my life! Thank you!

, CELTA student,

Course tutors were very professional and patient answering all our questions. The course itself was very intense and sometimes felt like you don't have time to absorb new information. The course gave a lot of new tools ans insights on the teaching process and how to approach different kind of students.

, CELTA student,

It was hard and I barely coped with it. But made it. Tutors were great and provided very constructive feedback.

, CELTA student,

It's been an effective and pleasant course. I liked the people - tutors as well as colleagues and Czech students who attended the course. I'll remember it kindly.

, CELTA student,

Life changing experience, but a steep learning curve.

, CELTA student,

Very worthwhile experience with like-minded colleagues and tutors

, CELTA student,

The course is highly beneficial, I've gained a lot of experience in terms of teaching and personal development.

, CELTA student,

It was more than I expected. I learned a lot! Even though it has been exhausting, everything was great.

, CELTA student,

Feeling very grateful for accepting me on the course, for doing here in Prague, and for giving me that amount of knowledge I’m taking with me now

, CELTA student,

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,
