Student Reviews

Words most commonly used to describe this centre


It was a really good experience overall. It certainly wasn't easy, demanding on both time and abilities, but the tutors seemed to ensure that we wouldn't get broken while getting molded into better teachers. I feel like I got a lot out of the one month.

, CELTA student,

The CELTA course was an excellent investment in my professional development. I've gained valuable techniques, frameworks, and knowledge that directly enhance my work as an IELTS teacher. By applying the course's design principles, I've seen a noticeable improvement in my students' learning experience. I'm particularly grateful to my tutors, Natalie and Michael. They are the best teachers that I could ever hope for. I also enjoyed the friendship with my classmates and will value the connections we made. I would without doubt again choose to go through the course again.

, CELTA student,

The tutors were supportive and professional.

, CELTA student,

Great course

, CELTA student,

The tutors were excellent, as were the facilities!

, CELTA student,

I had a wonderful experience with supportive tutors and colleagues

, CELTA student,

The tutors Michael N and Natalia V are competent and very good at their jobs. This is not to say we students weren’t at times frustrated by them, but our frustration was an inevitable consequence of the course’s design. That is, at times they let us go to figure things out for ourselves. I knew that this measured disengagement was part of the plan. CELTA was an invigorating experience for me, but at times it was even more stressful than I had expected. I fully endorse Michael and Natalia and tried to take aboard every syllable they tried to give me. Two thumbs up for these two valuable instructors

, CELTA student,

It was an intensive but a great course. The tutors were amazing and made our journey a lot better and easier. The Internet connection was a bit unstable as it kept reconnecting and we had to reconnect every few mins. Other than that, there were really no problems, even if there were, they're not worth mentioning. Overall, I had a great experience connecting and getting to know different people and work with them.

, CELTA student,

My overall experience has been positive. I recommend taking the course with Michael and Natalie. They were quite strict in terms of teaching in order to push us forward and I believe that makes me a better teacher

, CELTA student,

I am satisfied with my experience during and after the course. Eveything was as expected and beyond.

, CELTA student,

I am so glad that I took my CELTA course at Apollo International House. My CELTA tutors Michael and Natalie were amazing. They were extremely supportive and helpful and provided excellent feedback They are also great role models and I am glad to have them as a future resource as I start my career in English teaching. The quality the CELTA course was highly professional, and I learnt an immense amount during my time at Apollo. There are so many classroom techniques that I am continuing to use now when I'm teaching, and it has given me confidence to be creative too.

, CELTA student,

I finished the course having learnt something, and improved myself not just as a teacher but as a person.

, CELTA student,

CELTA is truly an intensive course but it's also really rewarding. It requires a lot of reading, research, and planning. Sometimes, you might feel like giving up, but my supportive tutors were the reason I didn't quit, and they'll be there for you too. If you choose to do CELTA at Apollo English, you're surely going to pass because of the great tutors and the type of support you are going to get from them. You'll learn a lot of useful things that will make you a better teacher. So, even though it's hard, it's definitely worth it in the end.

, CELTA student,

I can say that it was an intense and challenging experience, but also incredibly rewarding. The course provided me with a comprehensive understanding of teaching English as a second language, and the opportunity to put theory into practice through observed teaching practice. The trainers were knowledgeable and supportive, providing constructive feedback that helped me improve my teaching skills. Although the course was demanding, it was worth the effort and has prepared me well for a career in English language teaching.

, CELTA student,

Apollo is a great place to have my CELTA course. The building is located in central Hanoi and it is equipped with sufficient facilities to support the course. Starting from the pre-interview process up to the end of CELTA, the staff has been very helpful. The tutors were very professional and supportive during the course; they provided excellent support for me and it helped me complete the course.

, CELTA student,

It was a great experience when I could meet and learn from outstanding people. Michael and Zach are fantastic tutors with different styles of teaching and guidance. I've learned a lot from them. Although the course was really intensive, other trainees and tutors were supportive and gave me a lot of advice. Highly recommend Celta Course and Apollo Pho Hue for future professional English teachers. Good luck with your journey ahead!

, CELTA student,

I had a satisfactory experience and learned a lot in the course

, CELTA student,

I did my CELTA course with Michael and Zach this July, and it was one of the best courses I have ever taken. The trainers are extremely knowledgeable, patient and enthusiastic. I gained both theoretical and practice knowledge which gave me more confidence in teaching. Thank you, Apollo and I will definitely recommend this course to everyone who wants to take CELTA.

, CELTA student,

An excellent course, very well structured, though a bit too intense. All of the tutors were extremely supportive and helpful and provided excellent feedback. Location was fine and easy to get too. The aircon was broken in rooms which made them very hot and there were delays in fixing it. The CELTA room was cramped and PCs had various configurations some had WORD some did not etc. The rooms and facilities were only weak spot on course but they were generally fine. We could have done with more students attending class. Otherwise excellent.

, CELTA student,

I had a wonderful time learning useful input sessions together with experiencing tough but essential Teaching Practice. My tutors were very supportive throughout the course, and I feel so grateful for being encouraged to discover the knowledge by myself. Thanks for an amazing course, and I believe Celta did boost my techniques and methodologies for future teaching.

, CELTA student,

Great experience, exceeded my expectations. Graeme is an amazing training professional.

, CELTA student,

The course was intense and you can count on your tutors to help you at any time. As for the staff in the center, they are very nice people also keen to help if you need anything.

, CELTA student,

The course was intense and challenging but with the help of two fantastic tutors, we all succeeded in our goal of attaining the CELTA. Having the opportunity to learn from Joelle, one of the most inspiring and talented teachers I have ever seen was a true bonus, and she is a credit to your school. The sole reason the facilities didn't get full five stars is because the air conditioning was not working for the first three weeks in the TP practise rooms, and teaching lessons was like a sauna sometimes! But the other facilities (interactive monitors, computers, course books etc) were excellent and the staff working there were lovely and friendly, and the air conditioning was fixed shortly before we left.

, CELTA student,

My tutors were great and very helpful. I enjoyed the course and learned a lot from it. The only thing is the rooms were hot and it was pretty irritating sometimes.

, CELTA student,

Completing the CELTA at the Apollo (Hanoi) is without doubt the best decision I made when selecting a training facility and location. This is truly an intensive course, and without the unconditional support of the tutors (a massive shout-out to CELTA trainer Joelle, you are an angel and a real credit to Apollo!), the administrative staff and amazing students, completing this course would have been nigh impossible. I honestly couldn't recommend the Apollo in Hanoi highly enough and hope to continue my teaching career with them! Thank you for all the guidance and support.

, CELTA student,

Joelle and Phil were outstanding tutors, both so knowledgeable and skilled and ready to support us in any way they could. The air conditioning in the teaching rooms was an ongoing issue during the course which did make the rooms uncomfortable and we were there in Spring so I can’t imagine what it could be like in Summer.

, CELTA student,

Overall, it was ntensive but awesome in the end. I'm very glad I had done it in Hanoi with these trainers! The classes on DVD were a bid outdated and tepid. Lindsay's was Ok because she used the interactive whiteboard and was pretty on it. But Jane's and Frances' felt a bit outdated.

, CELTA student,

I feel the course is challenging for both tutors and trainees, Billy and Graeme are true assets in that they're organisation is reasoned, informed and well implemented so as to create the best possible circumstances and environment for the trainees.

, CELTA student,

Overall, the course met all my expectations. It's a good start for inexperienced ESL teachers.

, CELTA student,

Excellent experience, very glad that I did it.

, CELTA student,

Fantastic. This is one of the best decision I've ever made in my life to do my CELTA with Apollo.

, CELTA student,

The course was great, really challenging but never overwhelming. Run very professionally with access to modern equipment and a huge library of resources. tutors knowledge and input sessions invaluable.

, CELTA student,

Its a great experience and I've learned so much. Thank you for the fantastic course!

, CELTA student,

Great, helpful course which did everything I expected.

, CELTA student,

I had an really great month doing my CELTA at Apollo Hanoi! A lot of it had to do with the amazing people that I got to work with, such a hardworking, supportive group :) Given how intensive the course is, being surrounded by positive people really helps. The tutors were also really nice and helpful. My favorite part was probably the teaching practices. The students were nice and eager to learn, and afterwards there were always workshops where you and your peers give candid and constructive feedback. The facilities were pretty nice, even though I am from Hanoi I didn't have working space where I was staying so I spent a lot of time in the trainee's room where there are literally everything you need to prepare for you lesson. The area around the center has a lot of good, cheap, local eateries less than a 5 minute walk away. Overall would definitely recommend.

, CELTA student,

The course was fantastic! Well worth the money spent!

, CELTA student,

I am so glad that I took my CELTA course at Apollo International House in Hanoi. My CELTA tutors Chris and Flo were amazing. They genuinely care about their students, their progress as teachers, and their future careers. They are also great role models and I am glad to have them as a future resource as I start my career in English teaching. Also, Hanoi is a great city to be in. The people are really nice and the food is amazing. It makes the hard days of CELTA much easier when you can stay in Hanoi.

, CELTA student,

Both Chris and Flo are clearly excellent teachers and that shows during the course. Not only did they exceed my expectation in terms of teaching expertise, they also did a great job creating an environment that was both enjoyable and educational. The combination of these factors meant that the course was overall a fun and rewarding experience.

, CELTA student,

The course was indeed very intensive but equally rewarding. The two tutors were extremely supportive and encouraging.

, CELTA student,

The course was extremely demanding, but through the support and genuine care of our tutors it was manageable and a learning experience I am very glad I had.

, CELTA student,

The course was fantastic. The trainers (Chris Jones and Flo Feast) were extremely knowledgeable and helpful. We trainees had everything we need. I'm totally satisfied.

, CELTA student,

The quality the CELTA course was highly professional, and I learnt an immense amount during my time at Apollo. Special thanks is due to both of the experienced teachers who made the intensive learning time a truly beneficial and rewarding experience. Their commitment to every student was highly commendable. The intensity of the well organised course was all worthwhile and logical in the end.

, CELTA student,

It Is a fantastic opportunity for brand-new English teachers. The course is well organized, and the input sessions are extremely helpful.

, CELTA student,

Great people and an amazing amount learned in such a short space of time. I left feeling 100% confident of teaching unassisted

, CELTA student,

I loved the course and instructors. The building was under construction with limited functionality, which was frustrating. The commute from my district in Dong Da is long, but I understand that most foreigners live near Hai Ba Trung, Hoan Kiem, and Tay Ho. Overall, I am proud, honored, and pleased to have been a CELTA trainee.

, CELTA student,

I found the content of the course and the course tutors exceeded my expectation. The structure of theory and intergrated practice helped to improve me so much as a teacher. There are so many classroom techniques that I am continuing to use now when I'm teaching, and it has given me confidence to be creative too.

, CELTA student,

Did exactly what it said on the tin. A great location providing great value for money.
