Student Reviews

Words most commonly used to describe this centre


Taking CELTA at ATI was a valuable experience for me; throughout the course, I received a lot more than my expectations. Thanks to my professional tutors and their unlimited support, I have developed a variety of new skills and gained confidence in my career.

, CELTA student,

It was a highly beneficial and fulfilling experience for me. Thanks to the tutors and their feedback, I felt that I improved and further expanded my knowledge.

, CELTA student,

It was a great experience for me as a person who is completely new to teaching. I learned a lot with this Celta course and I feel confident about teaching now.

, CELTA student,

I was very happy with the education and care I received throughout my CELTA course.

, CELTA student,

The Course has been very fruitful and fun thanks to our tutors.

, DELTA Module 2 student,

On an arduous DELTA Module 3 journey, I could always rely on the highly qualified support of Simon, the ATI Director, and the centre tutors, who carefully guided our group of trainees through all the parts of the assignment, providing constructive feedback and valuable insights both in the Moodle platform and Zoom sessions. ATI offers a very attractive fee for high-level training. I definitely recommend the training centre.

, DELTA Module 3 student,

Directions are given, knowledge levels are set, my mind is pushed to build a multi-layer cross-reference neural network of learning backrounds, methodological approaches, lesson shapes, learning and teaching styles, 'massively interconnected' with language systems and communicative skills. . After all, the DM1 exam is a tester of whether such a network has been built/exists in the candidate's brain. Thanks to the tutors, I now have a different quality of pedagogical thinking.

, DELTA Module 1 student,

The course has been an intense experience for me. The majority of the input sessions were like a review of my BA courses, however, it was a very nice experience to get together with teachers from all around the country. The biggest contribution of this course to my teaching is TP sessions and the feedback I received from my tutors. Now, I am more aware of my strengths and weaknesses in my teaching.

, CELTA student,

I like how teaching how to teach was enhanced through different input sessions, and feedback I received one of the tutors contributed me a lot in my 6th years of teaching. I also think some things should be improved. There are serious disparities on the feedback we received from different two tutors related to "online" teaching. They had very different ideas when to use BORs, how to use them, how to arrange interaction patterns in online lessons etc. When two tutors tell you something so opposite to each other. It feels like it is not a standard but an opinion.However, we were obliged to follow their opinions and got unfair feedback when we didn't follow them. If something is really criteria to follow they should be standardized. Furthermore, I saw different tutors do not use Zoom effectively, for instance some of them shared their PPT on presenter view. I think if tutors worked and taught with technology, they should have known better how to teach online and they should be standardized certain things.

, CELTA student,

It was intense but fruitful. Special thanks to Mrs. Hasırcı and Mr. Dahman.

, CELTA student,

It was the most intense and hardest course I've ever taken; nevertheless, the exprerience was priceless.

, CELTA student,

It was a great experience to be trained by the wonderful tutors. Thank you for everything.

, CELTA student,

It was nice in total,thank you very much for everthing but tutors ı have met with one (second half)my tutors just five minutes before my tp, she did not have any inputs, and we did not communicate enough, because she let us just before the lesson, since other collegues know and can communicate easily it was unfair, our first Tutor Miss Selen was great, she did an earlier meeting with us, always took us to the class at least 15 minutes early so we could talk and get our notes. And for students I wish you found us students, since nobody showed off, I created whats app group amd invite the students, so they just came for the sake of me, and sometimes they left early, it was unfair to my collegues again.

, CELTA student,

It was an intensive course as they suggested. However, now I am a confident teacher candidate thanks to our training!

, CELTA student,

, Workshops - Active Learning - Actively involved or actively hypnotized student,

It was an enriching course with all the modules, TPs, but especially with the feedback sessions and supporting of the tutors. I gained a lot. Of course it is a quite demanding course, you have to spare enough time to succeed it.

, CELTA student,

It was an engaging experience with our lovely supportive tutors and the great team work we had during the teaching practice helped me to gain the knowledge and know many information from them and learn from them. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who would like to improve her/his teaching skills.

I've had a good experience with ATI and CELTA course in general. The lessons were quite productive. Thanks to ATI I've learned a lot from the units as well as assignments and TPs. Tutors' feedback were educative and to the point.

I 'm grateful for the course as it combined theory with practical guidance to explore a range of techniques and strategies in training English teachers. It gave me opportunity to look at teaching from different point of view. I'm happy to implement my new knowledge in sessions.

, Trainer Training Course - Cambridge Train the Trainer student,

I had a wonderful experience, The course was refreshing, interactive and interesting. a good mixture of practical and theory with enough time to discuss issue. Overall the course is going to be very useful in my day to day job:) Really well done, congrats to everyone involved. For sure i will recommend it !!!

, Trainer Training Course - Cambridge Train the Trainer student,

This was a good introductory course to teacher training. The course not only covered important topics like giving feedback and designing professional development sessions for teachers, the instructors used a wide variety of online learning tools to enhance the online training and equip the participants for their future training opportunities. The course was especially enjoyable and motivating due to other participants' consistent and timely interaction.

, Trainer Training Course - Cambridge Train the Trainer student,

I really enjoyed the mixture of theory and practice this course had to offer. I really liked the fact that the course's topics were very relevant to my field of work and that although the course was exclusively online, we were indeed able to share our comments and ideas with one another. The amount of content we had to get through was also spread out quite evenly during the entire eight weeks.

, Trainer Training Course - Cambridge Train the Trainer student,

I loved the Train the Trainer course, even if just online! It was a wonderful experience, I feel like we learned a lot and it was very nice to have something to look forward to every week!

, Trainer Training Course - Cambridge Train the Trainer student,

It has been overall a smooth course thanks to clear instructions in every step and objectives shared at the beginning of every week both on the platform and via e-mail. It has also been practical because of its being online for the ones who have a tough schedule. It consists of beneficial and logically-ordered topics and sub-topics for trainers from teachers. It has given us a chance to learn as well as practise what we have learned. Our knowledge has been reinforced with the presentations offered parallel to what is done on the platform.

, Trainer Training Course - Cambridge Train the Trainer student,

It was a fruitful course. Thank you!

, CELTA student,

It was an intense and challenging course for me, I have learnt wand practised a lot, thank zou for the clear schemes and ideas you gave us to use in our every day teaching!

, CELTA student,

, CELTA student,

Over the course of 5 weeks, I learnt about so many things! The tutors Jennifer and Özlem were supportive every step of the way. If you take the intensive course, make sure you get other things out of the way, it's really challenging

, CELTA student,

It was rewarding to come together with colleagues and learn new things from professional trainers every single day of an entire month. It has definitely widened my knowledge, taught how to put together and teach a top-quality English lesson, and helped to detect developmental areas to work on. I just can't thank my tutors (Jason and Suzan) enough for their support and constant feedback.

, CELTA student,

A wonderful experience that changed my perspective on teaching. I was really lucky to have two amazing tutors ( Suzan and Jason) who supported me and provided me with the guidance I needed to complete the course. I am absolutely happy with how it turned out! I'm so glad that I had my CELTA in ATI. Thank you.

It was really great and rewarding. The tutors, Jason and Susan were really supportive, their feedback was very helpful and detailed.

, CELTA Online student,

It was a great experience!

, CELTA student,

It was demanding but so inspiring

, 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,

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 was great. Tutors were very helpful and positive.
