Student Reviews

Words most commonly used to describe this centre


It was really great and rewarding. The tutors, Jason and Susan were really supportive, their feedback was very helpful and detailed. The input sessions were amazing, and I learned many things from every single moment of them. The center and the tutors were also really disciplined. Although it was demanding, it was worth it.

, CELTA student,

I have had a tremendous experience while taking Train the trainer course online with Anatolia Training Institute. Our precious course tutors, Simon Phipps and Suzan Özgelen were one of the best professional trainers whom I have ever met. Thier support and mentoring were valuable for me, because through online education we need more mentoring rather then teaching.

, Trainer Training Course - Cambridge Train the Trainer student,

The Delta course has noticeably taken me a step further in both my teaching knowledge and practice. I also feel grateful for the invaluable support of my tutors.

, DELTA Module 2 student,

I had the opportunity to refresh and impove my knowledge about teaching English appropriately by listening to my tutors and doing the activities they carried out. Also, I had to read a lot of books and articles, which improved my knowledge a lot. Everthing was so organized so we could see our improvement day by day.

, CELTA student,

Our tutor was excellent: clear instructions, always available for support, very informed and experienced, and always professional. A fine course. Recommended.

, CELTA student,

1- I believe the course is excellently designed to teach how and why to teach English. 2- I participated in the online course, so my rating (5 stars) of the facilities and location is reflective of the convenience and use of online options.

, CELTA student,

My experience taking DELTA module 2 at the Anatolia Training Institute was certainly a positive one for many reasons. Firstly, I liked very much how everything was structured using specific deadlines and the way in which the course was organized into different sections using Moodle. Secondly, the interactive sessions every Saturday morning kept me focused and they also helped me to sharpen my skills as a teacher as they helped me to increase my knowledge and understanding of teaching English. I was really satisfied with these sessions because the groups were small, I felt comfortable, and I got to meet some interesting teachers from around the world. Thirdly, the tutors were very professional, friendly, and approachable and were excellent at sharing their knowledge and experience as well as giving constructive feedback on our assignments. The feedback was detailed and pointed out our strengths and weaknesses. I truly believe that it allowed me to reflect on my teaching habits and make adjustments where needed to improve my teaching overall. I knew I was in good hands after the first session, and I had made the right decision to register for DELTA Module 2 at this institution. Finally, this course really made me feel more confident as a teacher and it certainly pointed me in the right direction for continuous professional development. The peer observations as well as the input sessions and feedback on assignments encouraged me to try out new techniques in my classes. What made this so rewarding was the simple changes that I made which had such a huge impact on the motivational levels of my students. This course was certainly a positive learning experience for me.

, Trainer Training Course - Cambridge Train the Trainer student,

The course made for a very valuable learning experience, the tutors' support and insight has been particularly notable for me.

, CELTA student,

I just want to thank you for every thing I've learnt during the course and supporting me with constructive feedback. I found the course really practical and I hope I can apply all the techniques in my real classes. I only have a suggestion, we covered unit 25: Language review after our TPs, but I found it really helpful for analyzing the LG, I wish we had it before our TPs.

, CELTA student,

As the course successfully balanced theory and practice, it helped me alıt to cover about being a teacher trainer. It also enabled me with a wide contact of colleagues all around the world in various contexts.

, Trainer Training Course - Cambridge Train the Trainer student,

Both Suzan and Simon were great. The only criticism I would make would be the pair/group work tasks. It was difficult to meet deadlines when my task depended on others. It would be better if such a task is not on the last week. I get anxious if I cannot meet the deadline.

, Trainer Training Course - Cambridge Train the Trainer student,

Everything was excellent-I just wish we had more sessions focusing on practical exam practice for ATI students as it was sometimes confusing to follow with ITI.

, DELTA Module 3 ELTM (Management) student,

It was an enjoyable and educational course. Thank you for everything

, Trainer Training Course - Cambridge Train the Trainer student,

, CELTA Online student,

Best tutors ever! Simge, Jason and Metin😍 Supportive and helpful 🙏🏻

, CELTA student,

Tutors were amazing, very helpful and supportive. The course itself was very intensive and tiring but also fun as well.

, CELTA Online student,

It was a great learning experience. The tutors and trainees were always helpful and kind.

, CELTA student,

The course itself was really fruitful and I achieved many positive approaches through teaching English which placed me in the right path of my aim.

, CELTA student,

I enjoyed every moment and I think that it was a great experience.

, CELTA student,

I am grateful to have the chance to participate in an online course like this!

, Workshops - Error Correction student,

Had a very good experience

, DELTA Module 2 student,

Thanks to Suzan's explanations, I was able to understand difficult topics.

, DELTA Module 1 student,

The insights I have gained from my teachers, the observations I made, the lessons I took and the feedback I received were not only limited to professional knowledge, but also affected other aspects of my perspective on the profession and personal development. Indeed, this program has a very important place for me in my professional life. Thanks to these opportunities provided by Suzan and Simon, I have improved myself. The critical thinking I learned from my instructors allowed me to find solutions to problems very quickly. Even in my daily life, I realized that I have started to use the techniques I learned from DELTA. It was a professional program that I can recommend to anyone who wants to improve themselves. Thank you so much Simon and Susan for everything. They have become people who have two main roles in my life with what they have contributed to me professionally. It was a professional program that I can recommend to anyone who wants to improve themselves.

, DELTA Module 2 student,

It was very challenging and demanding to keep up with the course work. However, it was rewarding from professional and personal standpoint. I have learned that there is more to discover about the teaching process. Never stop learning what you teach!

, DELTA Module 2 student,

It was challenging. But I also felt the satisfaction of learning and improving as a teacher. Besides , I definitely recommend Module 2 before Module 1, it will help better with the exam.

, DELTA Module 2 student,

As a first time teacher, it was a really steep learning curve. It turned out to be a lot more difficult and a lot more work than what I had anticipated - but it was well worth the effort. Thank you Muge and Simge for (gently) whipping me into shape!

, CELTA Online student,

It was a great experience to improve professionally and learn about new techniques that I will include in my lessons. The best part of the course were tutors, always very supportive and ready to help if needed.

, CELTA Online student,

I though the course was very helpful

, CELTA Online student,

As a primary teacher in a Turkish private school, I know that the move from face-to-face teaching to virtual teaching has forced us to change many of the things we were doing before, for example, provide more concrete examples of the things we expect our students to do. I believe my group would have benefited from more direct instruction and guidance prior to submitting lesson plans and practice teaching. We were told to follow outlines on how to do our lesson plans, but when we believed we set up the lesson plan according to the example, we were criticized for not following the correct form when we thought it was a replica of the example provided. No one ever checked in on us during the course to see if we needed help or if we were doing well. A more positive approach and more understanding for the people taking the course would have been appreciated instead of just negatively criticizing us immediately and threatening, warning that we will fail the course. We were told to watch the videos and we expected that was how we must do the TPs, but when we followed those examples, we were told we were wrong. It would have been helpful, in advance, to have rubrics of what was expected. The Cambridge approach seems to be the opposite of how we teach in my IB PYP school, where we help and nurture students to be successful. The Cambridge approach seems to be to give an assignment and expect the student to figure out how to do it and criticize them when it turns out they did not understand it. Sink or swim. Perhaps in face-to-face lessons, where there is a relationship between the teacher and student, this is more effective, but virtually, it made things difficult. The whole course was very stressful.

, CELTA Online student,

I took an online course so I can't give a clear answer about facilities and location. However, I would like to admit the great work and help of our tutors Simge and Simon. They were very helpful and professional. It was a pleasure to work with them and learn from them. Thank you.

, CELTA Online student,

It is an interesting and fruitful experience. I did not expect that I will learn so many things in an organized and professional way like this.

, CELTA Online student,

CELTA online was a rough ride but very useful. I am already seeing the effects in my own classes. The tutors are wonderful and extremely supportive and I cannot thank them enough!

, CELTA Online student,

I was very happy with the course's organization and help and feedback. I never felt like I was alone in it as I could always ask questions and get feedback.

, CELTA Online student,

It was a difficult but a beneficial course.

, CELTA Online student,

It has been a great and totally enlightening experience. Thank you for everything!

, CELTA Online student,

It was quite a beneficial experience for me. Before attending the course, I lacked teaching experience. The course supported me with theoretical and practical teaching techniques. Now, I feel more confident about teaching.

, CELTA Online student,

I had a great and fruitful adventure during the course. It helped me improve a lot in the field of teaching and understand the main concept of every method. Thanks to those who were helpful and supportive during this process.

, CELTA Online student,

I still can't believe that it is done. It was demanding and challenging, yet it was worth every moment of hard work. I feel that my efforts were fruitful and now I am more aware of what I am doing in my teaching. I also can never forget Suzan and Simon's support ad help during the course. Thank you, my dear Tutors.

, DELTA Module 2 student,

It was a valuable and practical course. All the trainers were very knowledgeable and presented the objective materials effectively.

, DELTA Module 2 student,

Everything about the course and the school was great! A welcoming atmosphere with great tutors and lovely people, all I’m taking with me is a time full of nothing but hard work and great fun!

, DELTA Module 1 student,

Everything was great. Tutors were very helpful and positive.

, CELTA Online student,

It was a hard and breathtaking period but enjoyable.

, CELTA Online student,

I decided to take CELTA course to continue my professional development and it changed my perspective through the teaching and the way I conduct the lessons. The feedback that I got from my tutors and my classmates helped me to improve my teaching. Simge was always there to answer our questions and guided us throughout the whole course. The first TP week was a turning point for me to realize how was my teaching in real. At the end of the course, a lot has changed in my attitudes towards teaching and learning a language.

, CELTA Online student,

A very fulfilling and inspiring experience with amazing tutors. It was perfectly integrated so that we had exposure to both theory and practice. I have learned a lot and I look forward to putting all this knowledge and information into practice!

, CELTA Online student,

I thought that CELTA would be easy to finish, which was eventually not so. I am now feeling more confident in teaching thanks to CELTA Program. It is worth the time spent for responding its demanding tasks and high course fee. Even though the teaching practices were intensive and intimidating at first sight, I really enjoyed them, and they made me feel confident and proficient.

, CELTA Online student,

I found the CELTA course challenging. I learnt lots of useful techinques which I have already used back at school this week. The tutors gave really effective feedback and were very helpful. I felt that the support from my fellow candidates was amazing and sharing knowledge and experiences really helped when the going got tough.

, CELTA Online student,

After this course, I can say that I am a real teacher. I have learned lots of things from my tutors and colleagues.

, CELTA Online student,

It was tiring and challenging especially TP days, but I have learnt many things about being more effective teacher.

, CELTA Online student,

I had the opportunity to improve my teaching skills. Thank you very much.

, CELTA Online student,

You can benefit from this course a lot. It was both useful and fun experience.

, CELTA Online student,

The course was intense but very informative. I learned and improved a lot as a teacher. We had to work hard but the assignments and lesson plans and the sources that were provided were really effective and they helped us gain very valuable knowledge about how to teach English. I feel like I am a much better teacher now.

, CELTA Online student,

Even if was an intensive course I experienced so many things as the pace was challenging, alternating between preparing, observing, teaching, reflecting and listening feedback on our lessons from tutors and fellow Celta trainees to preparing, observing and feeding back to our colleagues about their lessons. It was really valuable learning and development opportunity for me and one I would certainly recommend to others, including modern language teachers.

, CELTA Online student,

It was a very pleasant experience. I learned a lot and the ATI staff was always friendly and supportive whenever I needed help.

, CELTA Online student,

It was an extraordinary experience since you become families with new way of teaching and perception

, CELTA Online student,

Everything I’ve learned will be very helpful for me. It was hectic but a great experience.

, Trainer Training Course - Cambridge Train the Trainer student,

The course was quite enriching and all aspects of the program were conducted effectively. Future Learn course content was well-prepared and useful with practical activities and helpful videos. Live sessions made the whole training more real with hands-on interactive activities. Also, Simon and Suzan's attitudes and constant support were always so positive and supportive. I feel glad to have taken this course and worked with Simon, Suzan and all the colleagues.

, Trainer Training Course - Cambridge Train the Trainer student,

I really enjoyed the course. Thank you!

, Trainer Training Course - Cambridge Train the Trainer student,

It was a great learning experience. Exercises and principles were thorough and clear and helped us understand and gain the skills. Of course, we will need practice to consolidate it all but it was really helpful and useful. One comment I can say as a lit major (not an ELT major) with no training experience, that it took me much much longer to complete the tasks than 4 hours/week, especially on weeks with written assignments like the lesson plan.

, Trainer Training Course - Cambridge Train the Trainer student,

Thanks Simon and Suzan, it has a been a great learning experience.

, Trainer Training Course - Cambridge Train the Trainer student,

Simon... Suzan... Thank you so much.... It was worth every minute of hard work.

, Trainer Training Course - Cambridge Train the Trainer student,

This was a great course. I recommend it to everyone.

, Trainer Training Course - Cambridge Train the Trainer student,

I have learned and improved myself a lot. The inputs, feedback styles, how to evaluate observations and other aspects that a teacher trainer should learn were in the context. Especially our lead trainers were awesome. They helped us all the time and never left us alone. If you want to become a trainer, ATI is the best option for your professional development.

, CELTA Online student,

ATI is a reputable training institution and the quality of the training provided is outstanding.

, Cambridge Train the Trainer student,

From the very beginning to the end, both the trainers and the administrative staff did their best to facilitate my learning journey. Without their guidance it won't be easy for me to find a solution how I can cope with my huge study plan, as there are loads of things to study. If I want to describe my experience with some adjectives, those will be: useful, innovative, accelerator and awesome. Thanks for your patience and everything.

, DELTA Module 1 student,

The course has been more than fruitful, providing us with detailed session notes, zoom sessions that allow further clarification of topics, and constructive feedback provided by tutors.

, DELTA Module 1 student,

Overall it has been a positive experience and I enjoyed my time and learned a lot in the course.

, CELTA Online student,

It was a great experience to learn important keys in ELT and use them in the classroom. It really works and makes you feel more confident as a teacher.

, CELTA Online student,

The course was difficult at times, but highly beneficial. I learned a lot of useful techniques and methods of teaching. All the tutors were helpful and supportive throughout the course.

, CELTA Online student,

I benefited a lot and gained many skills that will be useful for me as a language teacher in the long run. It's a great opportunity to observe experienced teachers and improve yourself in a very systematic and professional way.

, CELTA Online student,

Online component of the course was really beneficial for me to improve my teaching skills and learn other aspects of teaching English. Teaching practices are definitely helpful to put the theories and knowledge into the practice.

, CELTA Online student,

I've enjoyed the whole process quite a lot. Although it gets tiring and difficult at times, the feeling of successfully completing everything is worth the hard work. I am an experienced teacher of 7+ years of teaching different learners, but I wish I had the chance of taking a CELTA course way earlier. The knowledge, skills, ideas, and materials collected throughout the course are priceless. I've also learned a great deal form the course tutors and I hope to be as good as them one day. I guess, if you're a teacher who likes his/her job, you will adore CELTA.

, CELTA Online student,

It was an excellent experience for me to have a chance to get CELTA. I sincerely thank you for everybody for giving this opportunity for me.

, CELTA Online student,

Great

, CELTA Online student,

It was demanding but very effective overall. I learned a lot during the course.

, CELTA Online student,

I had a really beneficial experience by all means. In addition to learning new teaching techniques that I was not aware of personally it was a fruitful growing experience.

, CELTA Online student,

Tutors were professional and friendly and even though the course was very demanding, it was a really memorable and enjoyable experience.
