Words most commonly used to describe this centre


awesome experience

, CELTA student,

The tutors were very knowledgeable and insightful during the course. The administrative staff were also very quick and helpful in answering questions. It was an excellent course that thoroughly prepared me to be a EFL teacher.

, CELTA student,

Overall the experience was good. The level of difficulty increases at a rate which is extremely challenging but not beyond what I felt was necessary to get the most out of the course, well balanced and clearly thought out. The tutors are very supportive. Graeme and Michael have quite different characters which I felt was a huge asset to the learning process. Switching between the two tutors during the course helped me develop a broader perspective on my performance. Although the type of feedback given is consistent with both tutors, the way it is delivered varies, which really helps with reflection and adaptation. Graeme gives slightly less direct criticism, which early on really helped my confidence grow. Michael is far more direct which later in the course gave me a well needed push to improve on my action points (to be clear, this never felt unfair or harsh, it was always relevant and constructive). I honestly feel as though the way I was guided and helped throughout the course could not have been better. The only reason my rating for the facilities is not 5 stars is due to the wifi. There were frequently issues with the network which meant on many occasions I could not access resources needed to work on assignments and lessons plans. Time is the most important resource during the course, and when you have an hour free to work but don't have access to the internet, it can disrupt your productivity dramatically.

, CELTA student,

The experiences i have had during this course, have not only helped me develop professionally, but personally as well.

, CELTA student,

I really appreciated the help and guidance thr tutors gave. Everything went smoothly and I feel like I learned a lot. I also lived that the tutors both had very different styles in their approaches and how they grade and critiqued us. It gave a well balanced program.

, CELTA student,

The tutors were experienced and motivating. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The students were extremely engaged and understanding. I would highly recommend this place.

, CELTA student,

It was such a life-changing journey I had with both the tutors and other trainees. I am grateful to them for always motivating and listening to my problems and concerns. My skills as an ESL teacher have improved a lot since then and the course did open my eyes to the world of teaching. Thank you once again for making the whole month less stressful and more fun. CELTA has greatly morphed me into a much better teacher and that could not become true without their support.

, CELTA student,

It was a wonderful experience. The tutors were so professional. All the facilities were well-set for the course. a life changing experience :)

, CELTA student,

All great!

, CELTA student,

It was great. The course was very intense and stressful. But it was a fantastic course for developing teachers for adult classes. The tutors were fantastic. They conducted a great course. They have so much ESL/EFL experience to share.

, CELTA student,

Phil and Graeme are the best.

, CELTA student,

The course overall was good, and the school is well equipped.

, CELTA student,

I really enjoyed the course. Although it was an intense month of lesson plans and assignments, it was definitely worth it. I, now, feel more prepared to be a teacher and have learned some wonderful teaching skills/techniques from the course tutors.

, CELTA student,

Just Intensive as notified beforehand. Nevertheless, I do see my progress, And the sense of achievement is rewarding. Overall contents are helpful and quite practical.

, CELTA student,

I had great experience on the course. I learnt how to prepare my own lesson plans, manage the class and deliver my lessons in an efficient way. I’ve become a more independent and confident teacher after this course.

, CELTA student,

I learned a lot during the course, professionally and personally. It was my first time abroad and I don't speak Vietnamese. I’m quite sensitive and fainthearted and was really scared of every single person I met in the first week. After every teaching practice, in addition to feedback, the input sessions were overwhelming as I felt that everything I did in my TP was wrong. By the end of week two, I just wanted to give up. My fellow trainees and tutors were very supportive and motivated me saying I need to be more assertive and have confidence in myself which I really needed to hear at that point of time. I’m glad I did the course at IH Apollo. The staff members were really helpful as well. I’m happy and thankful for everything I gained through CELTA.

, CELTA student,

It was a great experience. The course was intense but every stage was developmental. Thanks to the tutors for the constructive obeservations and feedbacks.

, CELTA student,

An amazing experience. Great tutors, lots of support and best decision I've ever made.

, CELTA student,

It's a great experience! Excellent tutors, wonderful trainees, super-efficient admin. So grateful for this course!

, CELTA student,

İt was an intense but highly effective course. I am happy I did it, as it changed my perspective on teaching and learning a foreign language.

, CELTA student,

It was an intensive and challenging course. The course tutors were committed to my success and I could not have completed the course without their assistance.

, CELTA student,

It was absolutely great!

, CELTA student,

Two great, unique course tutors. An enjoyable class with individuals of varied abilities and backgrounds. I've never learned so much in a single month!

, CELTA student,

A very valuable experience.

, CELTA student,

The course was very productive, useful, effective, and fun even though bit hectic. The lessons and materials were very informative and they were presented very well by our best 2 mentors. I was glad for being part of the course and proud of passing the course although I expected to get the higher grade.

, CELTA student,

This was, by far, the most intense, demanding and rewarding education/certification I've taken. What was good was the very little directives given by the instructors. It steered you into realizing that everything taught on the course, utmost everything, was something to keep in mind in order to do better and better. Brilliant.

, CELTA student,

Brilliant experienced tutors, organized staff; assistance with all the documents & visa; assistance in getting the certificate by DHL, finding the accommodation next to the school

, CELTA student,

Although is was a lot of work, the instructors gave us the guidance and support we needed in order to complete all tasks. I was a great experience.

, CELTA student,

I was impressed with the level of motivation shown by the students at Apollo. They were extremely engaged in the lessons and participated as much as possible.

, CELTA student,

A great course, thanks everyone! I learned so much.

, CELTA student,

I thought both tutors, Chris Jones and James Cleere were excellent. I enjoyed the course very much and feel I learned a lot from it and I feel that they are the main reason behind this.

, CELTA student,

A very effective training programme. Got a job quickly after completing it. It's prepared me very well for teaching English in Vietnam.

, CELTA student,

I thought it was excellent. James and Chris were fantastic. I would like to suggest at the beginning of the course it os highlighted how to get a pass, pass b or pass a. As no on my course got higher than a pass. It would have been good to know what was required to reach these grades. I particularly enjoyed the coffee and biscuits.

, CELTA student,
