Student Reviews

Words most commonly used to describe this centre


I liked it very much!

, CELTA student,

I appreciated the course. It was very practical and useful. It gave lots of valuable insights into ELT methodology and techniques. It was also inspiring and set on the path of further professional development and learning.

, CELTA student,

Super tutors, up-to-date material, friendly atmosphere.

, CELTA student,

The course overall delivered on expectations. It was thoughtfully devised and administered, highly impactful in terms of professional growth and absolutely worth its cost.

, CELTA student,

Very positive experience. Really helpful and highly practical course. Great tutors!

, CELTA student,

The course was very useful and informative, even perhaps too informative. The tutors were generally professional, but some of them should seriously consider working on their communication skills and perhaps process things they say before voicing them. The communication skills are an essential part of professionalism, I believe. Another thing is them being overly subjective in their assessment, e.g. I am not happy with my 'Pass' grade, I'm sure that I deserve 'Pass B', and I can clearly see in which aspects I was underrated, it's actually in the papers. Another major issue is an entry placement test for our students, e.g. some of "Intermediate" learners were hardly Elementary, which created some hindrance. But all in all - no regrets, I would recommend this course to fellow teachers.

, CELTA student,

It was both a challenge and a pleasure to do this course which took most of my free time. The tutors were responsive and responsible. They supported me a lot and taught me how to improve my teaching skills. The CELTA course opened new horizons, so I am wondering which course I am going to take next because now, as I passed CELTA, I am sure I will be able to do virtually any course.

, CELTA student,

Taking CELTA with BKC has definitely been the most useful experience in my life as a teacher. Planning lesson, teaching them, reflecting on your performance after each stage of the course and getting feedback from tutors and coursemates is just priceless if you are looking to improve your teaching skills. Input sessions are very helpful too, and they are not in lecture format - tutors keep you engaged all the time, and you often have an opportunity to try out new things you've just learned in your teaching practice that very day. A lot of useful materials are provided during the course together with an overview of coursebooks and different teaching resources, both online and offline. I am extremely happy that I made the decision to join the course.

, CELTA student,

The tutors were fantastic!

, CELTA student,

It was positively satisfied with CELTA course. It is worth taking, no doubts about the professionalism of each tutor! This course is a fund of knowledge for teachers to sharpen their skills and boost their motivation for future careers!

, CELTA student,

It was quite challenging but very useful at the same time.There are lots of things to learn which will be needed in the future.

, CELTA student,

That was an unforgettable experience! I am very grateful that I had a chance to learn from such professionals.

, CELTA student,

It was an amazing experience, harsh but extremely helpful for teachers’ career development.

, CELTA student,

It was excellent. The tutors, the course, the materials. I am really grateful for the course.

, CELTA student,

Honestly, it was an eye-opening experience for me as I've never taught grammar via L2, only with the help of L1. Also, we taught lexis in a different way, first written record then pronunciation and meaning. Celta trainers have significantly changed my fossilised methodology.

, CELTA student,

Online format turned out to be a definite upside

, CELTA student,

The course was extremely useful and totally practical. I loved the way the tutors (Tatiana Polovinkina, Irina Grekova and Joanna Graham) were conducting the input and feedback sessions, they turned out to be very helpful in terms of professional development. The only thing that I think could be improved is the facilities. The course was taught in August, and sometimes the weather was really hot. There was no functioning air conditioning in the office, and the rooms tended to get really stuffy even with the open windows. Besides, some of the rooms were pretty small to accommodate tutors, CELTA candidates and students. All in all, I've got a positive impression of the course, I genuinely enjoyed doing it. During these 4 weeks I met so many nice and interesting people (tutors, colleagues and students) who made this experience so amazing and totally worth it.

, CELTA student,

The course was incredible. We had many sleepless nights, however, it's worth it! Our tutors supported us a lot, it felt like they were ready to help 24/7. I wholeheartedly admired the way they presented the course materials and organized teaching practices in terms of feedback and supervision.

, CELTA student,

An amazing experience of a lifetime. I feel confident and full of enthusiasm after the CELTA course at BKC. My tutors Anna and Claire are the most inspiring professionals I’ve ever worked with!

, CELTA student,

On balance, I am pretty much happy with the fact that I took part in the full-time August 2020 CELTA course. I am really glad to have worked with such professional tutors as Joanna Graham-Wigan, Tatiana Polovinkina and Irina Grekova. I wholeheartedly admired the way they presented the course materials and organized teaching practices in terms of feedback and supervision. Their approaches were slightly different but that actually helped to ring the changes in the course learning process. I personally loved that very much. After my last teaching practice I asked the tutors to allow me to observe the last lessons taught by our counterparts from the other group and never regretted that. It was so surprising to get to know how huge my colleagues' progress was compared to TP 4, which we had to observe before changing the levels to teach. When you have to be watching each other's lessons every day, the progress we all have gradually been making is not so obvious. It could be useful to organize such 'cross-observations' in the middle and at the end of the course as the trainees might find it interesting and rewarding. The location is perfect for tourists but not for the trainees who drive their own cars. There is absolutely no free parking in the immediate vicinity. Anyway, it by no means affect the high quality of the course and I doubt if it can be improved. Although the place where we had to spend a month is suitable for studying, it in fact is very old and it might need some renovation.

, CELTA student,

Brilliant

Fantastic!

, CELTA student,

Everything was great!

, CELTA student,

Quite positive

, CELTA student,

It was a great experience, 4 weeks of self development and growing as a teacher. I really miss other trainees and the atmosphere!

, CELTA student,

Tutors at BKC are really great professionals, it's such a luck to study there and learn from them! The course itself was rewarding, I've gained huge experience and knowledge!

, CELTA student,

CELTA became a door opener in the world of ELT for me. I aquired basic knowledge which is essential for a newly qualified teacher.

, CELTA student,

, CELTA student,

, CELTA student,

, CELTA student,

Very satisfied

, CELTA student,

It was a pleasant time with lovely people around! The course opened many doors for me and left the best memories of the challenging time we've had.

, CELTA student,

It was great. The course was well organized and we were well prepared to teach. Totally worth the money abd effort .

, CELTA student,

The competence of our tutors was incredible, as well as their warmth and friendliness. No matter how exhausting and challenging the course was, it was a valuable experience and a big step forward in my professional and personal development.

, CELTA student,

It was fantastic - life-changing! The content of the input sessions was priceless, we learnt a lot of the terms and got the clear understanding of how the communicative approach in ELT works. The teaching practice was the most challenging but the most productive part. I think the way it's organized - planning, consulting with tutors, teaching, self-evaluation, feedback - is very well-thought and is highly beneficial for trainees. Lesson planning was actually absolutely new for me, but it proved that the best improvisation is the preplanned one, so I am very happy that I learnt how to do it (it's been two weeks since CELTA finished, and I've been planning my every lesson like that now, it does help a lot!). And I'd like to point out that we got huge support in terms of time-management and organisation - from an excursion around the building on our first day to tutor's advice on taking notes. The amount of information was overwhelming, but we were not lost in it.

, CELTA student,

, CELTA student,

I am very excited with the course. It was GREAT! THANK YOU! It gave me a chance to know how to teach as I am not a prefessional teacher. I then continued with the course for YL)). I would like to specifically rate very high Tatiyana Polovinkina. This tutor is THE MOST AMAZING TUTOR!!!!!!! She is just awesome! Tanya is strict, but gives so much valuable infromation, like structuring lessons, etc! Thank you so much for having HER (!) on the course. She taught our group first and she gave the most valuable information. She also worked very hard to improve each and every student. Thank you, Tanya!

, CELTA student,

The course was even better that I expected: it was practice oriented and the tutors presented the input sessions using the same methods and techniques they were teaching.

Intensive, challenging and exciting.

, CELTA student,

Just three words - that was great! I do miss those days. Unfortunately, the eggs can't be unscrumbled, the course can't be retaken, at least there's no point doing that. It's imposible to overhype the benefits I got from the course. It actually boosted up my professional life. I became more creative, confident, interesting and useful for my students. I started enjoying the teaching process much more. And, last but not least :)), I've already got back half of the fee I paid for the course because my employer values the qualification. So, thank you very very very much! The next station is DELTA.

, CELTA student,

During the time of the course I felt our tutors' great support. I felt free to ask them any questions any time. Thanks to the course input sessions, teaching practice and feedback sessions I grew more confident in how I'm teaching now.

, CELTA student,

The overall experience was challenging, demanding and useful. The tutors were understanding, helpful and helped us to push ourselves. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and have already put the skills learned during the course to use.
