School Overview

School Description

ILSC Montreal is Quebec's only CELTA provider and we have been offering the CELTA program for over 15 years. Our fulltime trainers are dedicated to providing quality teacher training and to preparing you for an exciting new career is teaching English.

Help with Employment

Many of our CELTA graduates find work at ILSC-Montreal or at other ILSC schools in Canada, Australia and India. We are also contacted by other language schools both locally and abroad who are looking for qualified teachers and pass that information onto our graduates. We provide references when requested by prospective employers.


We have many CELTA students who come from outside Montreal to take the program with us. Most find their own short-term accommodation through services such as Airbnb. Montreal's accommodation is a lot cheaper than other North American cities, particularly if you're coming from the US - the exchange rate is very favorable!

These are short term rentals that CELTA students have used as well:
Trylon Apartments

We can also assist with homestay, though this is more suitable for language students than for CELTA students who will need a bit more quiet due to the intensity of the course.

Student Reviews

Words most commonly used to describe this centre

I was impressed from the beginning orientation session and I was not disappointed after getting into the course. Having already received education training (Bachelor of Education) I recognized modern learning theory and gained a lot of specific application strategies for language learning facilitation. The CELTA course is certainly a quality and in-depth professional development program that can empower you (with comprehensive training) to be more effective as a teacher.

, CELTA Online student,

Excellent teachers, very supportive and a clear outline and expectation given throughout the whole course.

, CELTA student,

Overall, very good program. Our tutors were excellent - encouraging, caring, nurturing, knowledgeable and patient. I would like it if the program could be spread out to 5 weeks to give us some breathing room between TPs and assignments, i.e. time for reflection, to digest and review what we've just learned before the next class. The pace is too quick for four weeks. The classroom is small - we could fit in but not much room to breathe.

, CELTA student,

James Meanwell was an amazing tutor ! And Najma was extremely helpful.

, CELTA student,

I loved the course - it was rigorous and demanding but I have never learned so much. The instruction was practical, the feedback incredibly helpful and the teaching practice was invaluable. Thank you!
