Student Reviews

Words most commonly used to describe this centre

The course is demanding and intense but it's extremely rewarding! Met such great people, learned a lot and overall just had a really good time during the course!

, CELTA student,

The course exceeded my expectations. We learnt so much in the four weeks, there was a lot of work and the standards are high. The tutors were both wonderful. I would recommend this course to anyone looking for a venue for taking an intensive CELTA course.

, CELTA student,

IH Torres Vedras is the ideal place to take the CELTA. It's a demanding course, but it's delivered by highly experienced tutors who provide all the guidance and support you need. The school is well organised and the students are great. You'll be challenged, but you'll have fun. Plus you'll be in an incredible city!

, CELTA student,

Yes, there is a high price tag for this course but it is because of the depth of knowledge and experience you obtain upon completion. I actually miss having my tutors watch my classes! I am now teaching fulltime in SEA. The class sizes are quite large but with the methods and skills I learned with this course I feel confident everytime I walk into the classroom. The system and procedures this school used really work and the attention from the tutors was so genuine and helpful!

, CELTA student,

The administrative procedures and the course itself are organized efficiently and clearly. From the beginning, tutors have sent us precise guidelines and suggestions to help us prepare for the course. I have found the pre-course information and learning task particularly useful. Don't forget to read 'Learning Teaching' by J. Scrivener, which is an amazing book not only for the course but also for your future as a teacher. The first week is the hardest part but, if you keep following your tutor's feedback you don't need to worry. Despite the fact that you are being observed from colleagues and tutors the whole time the most rewarding moment is when you are actually teaching your students. The CELTA course is hard work but it is absolutely worth doing.

, CELTA student,

An excellent experience from start to finish, the course was well organized, enjoyable and comprehensive. The tutors were dedicated to excellence, supportive and highly professional throughout. I highly recommend this course to anyone contemplating taking a CELTA course.
