We provide high quality English & Spanish language instruction and internationally recognised teacher training courses, which aim to increase standards in teaching and learning in wider contexts.

Help with Employment

There is a dedicated session on the course which focuses on helping you to start your job search either locally or internationally and write the best possible CV to accompany your applications. The school also has a jobs board blog for our alumni which is regularly updated with the latest opportunities both here in Buenos Aires and abroad. For those candidates who wish to stay in Buenos Aires and work post course, we have many local contacts who are very keen to take on our graduates, having had lots of success working with our previous candidates. We can also put you in touch with previous candidates so that they can share their up to date experiences with you about living and working in Buenos Aires.

Because of the intensive nature of the course, we recommend that candidates find accommodation as close to the institute as possible.

Student Reviews

Words most commonly used to describe this centre


I took the 4 week course. It's really intensive. You cannot devote your time to another thing but the CELTA course. However, now I really missed that routine. The tutors were excellent and they guide you throught the whole process (from the interviews till the tps, input sessions and assignments). It was a pleasure to meet my peers. I still are in contact with many of them. We spend son many hours together that we missed each other haha. The tutors push you to your limits, to the ones that you think you'll never survive, but you do indeed. The whole experience was great! I am looking forward to seeing what is next...

, CELTA student,

I had an amazing time; I was in great hands with the tutors. The place itself was very welcoming and ended up feeling like home!

, CELTA student,

The Celta course lived up to its reputation as being intensive. However, it was tremendously rewarding to get through it with the support of such good tutors. I learnt so much during the course and I am really glad I did it. A huge thank you to Neil and Kate for all their assistance and for making it such a worthwhile experience!!

, CELTA student,

An amazing experience through and through. The course is intensive and could be a bit overwhelming at times (not much sleeping for a month), but it is definitely worth it! The staff is excellent and both Neil and Kate are incredibly supportive. Every feedback session and input session was meaningful and carried out in the same way as we are expected to carry out our lessons. Thank you!

, CELTA student,

The course is really tough but it is a rewarding experience without doubt, the tutors are the best, top notch teachers, you won't have a life for a month, so be prepared.

, CELTA student,

It was a bit difficult to deal with everything at the same time, but overall it was a good learning experience.

, CELTA student,

The course proved to be an enjoyable and rewarding experience from which I took countless aids and got amazing ideas to improve my teaching. I couldn't have asked for better tutors to show me the way of CELTA.

, CELTA student,

It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience! My expectations were high to begin with, and I didn't get disappointed! The tutors were really top-notch, the feedback was really clear and comprehensive, I learned A LOT! I will definitely be applying in order to do DELTA in a couple of years

, CELTA student,

It's a very challenging course, but Aldo very rewarding.

, CELTA student,

The course was delivered perfectly and completely. I've already started working at some places where the techniques and processes I was taught weren't known, and that definitely helped improving the teaching learning process.

, CELTA student,

It was a great experience, which left us with lots of food for thought. The time constraint made it super intensive, but it would be difficult to do it any other way.

, CELTA student,

Even though the course has been tough from begining to end, the tutors who guided and supported us all the way, set up great, helpful, and interesting afternoon sessions which were still intense but also very fun and enjoyable. Everything we had to do (lesson plans, assignments) was set up clearly and the tutors were very approachable and extremely helpful. As a whole, despite some stress and some lows, it was an excellent experience. I have learnt so much through it and I am glad I decided to take this course.

, CELTA student,

An excellent course and professional tutors. I felt I had 100% support. However, the classroom sizes are quite small and the teaching facilities need upgrading for example having a screen and laptop available for both teaching rooms

, CELTA student,

Everything is well-organized and tutors are very helpful. I also enjoyed the wide collection of books to check.

, CELTA student,

Passionate teachers and a great curriculum.

, CELTA student,

It is intense and demanding but it is worth every minute you spend on it. It not only gives you the theoretical framework to become a better ESL teacher but also the 'real-life' practice. I highly recommend it!

, CELTA student,

Thank you very much for everything! I've learnt a lot and I found it very useful for my new job. Best regards

, CELTA student,

Words would not be able to describe how amazing and challenging this course is. It is not only a course, it is the the hardest lesson I have ever had in my life. Tis course helped me a lot in different aspects of my life as a mother, teacher and person.

, CELTA student,

My CELTA experience was an overwhelmingly positive one, in large part due to the staff; namely the tutors and instructors of the course. Feedback was prompt, criticism was fair, and they placed themselves at virtually every opportunity to help. It's obvious they care about their students. They were an outstanding modal of professionalism and the IH should be grateful for their glowing reflection of what it means to be CELTA certified.

, CELTA student,

Neil and Kate were great teachers!! I learned so much in just one month. And the lessons were fun and engaging!

, CELTA student,

It was a very challenging and demanding course but I enjoyed every minute of it and learned tons of useful stuff. Absolutely recommended for all those who wish to start teaching English professionally.

, CELTA student,

It was very intense, but worth it at the end. Learned alot of things that I'm putting into practice now!

, CELTA student,

It's a challeging intensive course. Fruitful and rewarding. It takes you to the limit but it's worth it.

, CELTA student,

Very positive experience overall. Knowledgeable and supportive teachers, good facilities, and well structured, relevant course material.

, CELTA student,

I really enjoyed the learning process because I learned a lot in a fun, relaxed way. All guidelines were very clear and the tutors were very supportive.

, CELTA student,

I had a great experience! I think I learned a lot from the course and I am really glad I did it.

, CELTA student,

The course was reallly great! I took A LOT out of it!

, CELTA student,

It was very fulfilling and I am very glad that I chose to take this course in IH Buenos Aires. However, I think it might be helpful if the course covers various teaching situations such as teaching a large class (with more than 20 students) or teaching in public education sector. In addition, it might been better if the session about teaching adolescents/children had been longer and more profound.

, CELTA student,

The experience we received here was worth much more than the tuition we payed. We were able to learn so much and complete our assignments without over stressing ourselves. We all are guilty of the occasional all nighter during the course but we expected to do many more in the first year of our teaching careers. Thanks Neil and Kate!

, CELTA student,

Intense but highly rewarding

, CELTA student,

Great and well worth it!

, CELTA student,

Course schedule and responsibilities were clearly laid out and verbally expressed to us repeatedly. Resources, such as books, computers, and printers were easily accessible and maintained well. Neil was also great! This made an overall demanding and challenging course much easier to survive! I actually even enjoyed myself a bit!😊

, CELTA student,

The most extraordinary experience I've ever had. It was tough, I couldn't sleep during those days, but it was totally important for my career. A Life changing course.

, CELTA student,

Studying the CELTA course in Buenos Aires was a very rewarding experience. The course is tough, but enjoyable. The staff are great, and I made some great friends. I would highly recommend choosing BA to study CELTA.

, CELTA student,

Excellent, I just think the rules were sometimes not very sympathetic....Oral student presentation shouldn´t be so strictly qualified. Sometimes it is demotivating to get so many critiques.... The theoretical part was superb!!!

, CELTA student,

It was the best course that i did, i would do it again just to experience the whole process one more time.

, CELTA student,

Fantastic experience, all the staff were very friendly. They really guided you as much as needed. Would highly recommend

, CELTA student,

Ir was ok as an overall experience. It was useful to up date my Teaching skills which was my main aim at the course. However, I consider that the course is very much Language oriented and Lacks more modern orientations in Teaching such as NLP, literature, and cross curricular activities.

, CELTA student,

Great course. Really made me think about my methodology in teaching and, whilst it was hard work, drilled some great habits into me. I felt the tutors were quite tough at times but they got us all successfully through the course. Well recommended overall, the admin side of things was very smooth other than a delay to the delivery of my certificate, and the school is in a fanstastic area of BA. They give lots of help finding accommodation beforehand, and work afterwards.

, CELTA student,

It was a very intense month, but a very positive experience overall. I thoroughly enjoyed every part of the "learning how to teach path".

, CELTA student,

It was a great experience, I learned a lot from my tutors and classmates. I would definitely recommend CELTA in IH Buenos Aires.

, CELTA student,

I had a great time during the course! I met fantastic people and made great friends. The classes were very interesting and fun! I have nothing negative to say about it.

, CELTA student,

Highly challenging but excellent course

, CELTA student,

My CELTA experience was nothing but great. The course was much more than I expected, very complete and enriching. The tutors were very helpful and encouraging, and my peers were the best people to do this type of course with. I loved every single day of that tiring and intensive month, but no doubt I would do it again.

, CELTA student,

Amazing!

, CELTA student,

Incredible :) would (and will) highly recommend!

, CELTA student,

It was an enriching and unforgetable experience. I learned a lot from the tutors and the course. I´m very grateful.

, CELTA student,

Well structured, thorough, and designed skillfully for practical application in EFL teaching opportunities.

, CELTA student,

I found the course to be very (almost too) challenging, which is exactly how it should be, what I expected and what I wanted. Great course and I got out of it exactly what I wanted.

, CELTA student,

I had little prior experience teaching and learned a lot.

, CELTA student,

The course was intense and fast. Sometimes the feedback from our tutors was confusing and stressful. Some other times, the tutors performed wonderfully. I'd say that my experience was positive, overall.

, CELTA student,

It was the experience of my professional life. I'm a better teacher now. Thanks Neil and Jane, you guys are awesome!

, DELTA student,

Very very hard and demanding -- just the way I expected it to be.

, CELTA student,

My experience at International House Buenos Aires was everything I hoped it would be. The course itself met all my expectations and the staff at IH BsAs was as helpful as they could be.

, CELTA student,

It was a unique challenge and wonderfully constructive!

, DELTA student,

Excellent course, I recommend it to anyone intending to start a career in teaching English.

, CELTA student,

It was an amazing experience! Everything was so well organized and the tutors were so supportive and objective.

, CELTA student,

The course fulfilled all my expectations. The content was very well planned, as well as the dynamic of the classes. However, some of the last issues, which were important for me, were dealt with in not much detail. Overall the course was very good for me.

, CELTA student,

The CELTA course is challenging, but the tutors did an excellent job to ensure that we understood the materials and we were prepared to teach classes in the real world.

, CELTA student,

Thank you very much for an amazing experience that contributed a lot to my profession as an English Teacher and gave new, interesting perspectives of what teaching could be.

, CELTA student,

Learned a ton during this course! Great place to do your CELTA.

, CELTA student,

Very positive overall. It exceeded my expectations.

, CELTA student,

The course was delivered in the most efficient way. It was not pure theory but instead we were being shown what to do. I have learned a lot during this month, and even though it was indeed intensive, it was really interesting and well designed planed. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone interested in CELTA training.

, CELTA student,

I very much enjoyed the course. It was an intense month but an enjoyable one with a good mix of learning, pressure, meeting new people, etc. It was like being back at school with a 9-5 classroom routine, homework, seeing your friends every day! The tutors - Fran and Neil - were excellent. The location of the school was also very good - in a nice, safe part of Buenos Aires. I considered doing my CELTA in the UK but decided to do it in Buenos Aires instead. I recommend doing it in the city/town you plan to live and work in as you'll meet people you can live with and hang out with, but more importantly you'll network with people who are teaching in that city and they can help you find work, give advice, etc.

, CELTA student,

Loved it, learned loads and think it is a brilliant course which really gets you ready for teaching. The tutors are excellent and help you every step of the way.

, CELTA student,

Fantastic, life-changing courses.

, CELTA student,

The course is demanding, but the staff offers all the support needed.

, CELTA student,

long time ago, but it was excellent at the time!

, CELTA student,

I loved my experience at IH Buenos Aires. The course was extremely intense and more than I ever imagined but the tutors were so positive and encouraging with a great sense of humor which pulled me along the whole way. I learned more in those 4 weeks than I did during the 3 years I spend studying at uni and still apply many of the skills I learned in my daily life. Thank you!

, CELTA student,

friendly, helpful, motivated staff. great atmosphere and excellent coaching. really enjoyed the course and found it helpful in getting teaching work later on.

, CELTA student,

Loved it!

, CELTA student,

It was a great chance to learn the basics of teaching. I definitely felt like I walked away with a better understanding of the structure required to teach. The only thing I found a bit frustrating was that the criteria seemd a bit arbitrary. I know with something as open-ended as teaching nailing down specifics can be difficult, but I often felt like the objectives were not quite clearly stated.

, CELTA student,

A fantastic experience.

, CELTA student,

I had a fantastic experience. The tutors were both amazing. They are experienced, interested and approachable. I'm very happy with how much I've learned during this course.

, CELTA student,

I can't rate the course tutors highly enough. They were personal, professional and gave me a fresh and valuable insight to the world of teaching.

, CELTA student,

The course was good. It has theory and practice. It helps a lot but it is very tiring. It should last more than a month.

, CELTA student,

Great tutors, friendly place. The only problem was that the number of students (of English) in our first class got very low but the organisation was trying everything they could to improve the numbers.

, CELTA student,

Fantastic experience and wonderful staff and tutors at International House Buenos Aires.

, CELTA student,

Although it was very intense, it was one of the best training experiences I've ever had.

, CELTA student,

The course was interesting and helpful.

, CELTA student,

The trainers are extremely knowledgeable and helpful, They worked us very hard as that's par for the course. They also worked incredibly diligently themselves. They genuinely want the trainees to do well and will go out of their way to help if they see that you're putting in a valiant effort. I definitely learned a ton and am applying this knowledge daily in my current teaching.

, CELTA student,

It was a great experience! Very intense 4 weeks, but it was absolutely worth it. I´ve learnt many techniques that made my teaching more effective and my planning easier!! ABSOLUTELY POSITIVE!!! :)

, CELTA student,

I enjoyed the course very much. The tutors were excellent, very helpful. The only thing to critizise was the lack of modern equipment in the classrooms. A good set of speakers and flat screen in the classrooms would have made a big difference to work with audio and videos.

, CELTA student,

Overall it was a challenging, rewarding and unforgettable experience. Not only did the tutors excel at guiding and providing us with theoretical and practical knowledge, they made sure everything was in good standing with us throughout the month-long course. Not long after completing the course I was hired as en English teacher and it was evident that I had made one of the best investments of my life.

, CELTA student,

Fantastic experience, would recommend IH Buenos Aires to anyone.

, CELTA student,

Doing the CELTA was a fabulous experience for me. I think I have improved and learnt a lot about the teaching practice and I got to meet great people as well. I would definitely do it again.

, CELTA student,

The course was tempest of new facts, procedures, techniques and after it all I feel ready to handle almost any teaching situation.

, CELTA student,

It was an intense and rewarding experience and It left me wanting even more. I would like further capacity building . so please let me know if there are more courses similar to that one.

, CELTA student,

Really good

, CELTA student,

It was a great experience for me and it enhanced my knowledge. It was so useful for my teaching and for my personal growth. I'm so grateful for the opportunity I had to be there. Also the tutors were incredible. So professional and accurate.

, CELTA student,

was good

, CELTA student,

Fran and Neil were fantastic teacher trainers. Great space but could do with larger facilities (computers, learning space)

, CELTA student,

It was a great experience. Maybe too intense at some points, but definitely a great experience. I even think I could do it all over again!

, CELTA student,

It was indispensable to learning teaching methods.

, CELTA student,

I had a great time doing the CELTA and would recommend IH Buenos Aires to anyone.

, CELTA student,

I loved the course, learned so many of the things that I now use in my classes. Fran and Neil were excellent teachers. I am very thankful to all of the staff and the course itself and I would highly recommend it.

, CELTA student,

Wonderfully delivered course that gave me a strong foundation to go on and develop as an ESL teacher. The support during and after the course was first class. Veryhighly recommended.

, CELTA student,

I really enjoyed the course. The only thing that I would improve is that the handouts should be in digital form, eg. pdf.

, CELTA student,

Neil and Fran were THE BEST teachers, it was an absolute pleasure taking the CELTA course with them in June 2013. Great feedback, patience, and techniques were all demonstrated during my time taking this course.

, CELTA student,

The most important thing on the course is the teaching. It was consistently excellent and I learnt a lot.
