School Overview

School Description

ITI is an internationally recognised Cambridge English teacher training centre and the only Cambridge English approved centre for both the CELTA, ICELT and Delta courses in Turkey. We've successfully trained thousands of EFL teachers since we first began running courses in Istanbul in 1987. We have part-time, full-time and on-line options.

Location Overview

Istanbul is a major city in Turkey that straddles Europe and Asia across the Bosphorus Strait. Its Old City reflects cultural influences of the many empires that once ruled here. In the Sultanahmet district, the open-air, Roman-era Hippodrome was for centuries the site of chariot races, and Egyptian obelisks also remain. The iconic Byzantine Hagia Sophia features a soaring 6th-century dome and rare Christian mosaics.

Student Reviews

Words most commonly used to describe this centre


CELTA is the most practical teacher training course in the world.It is not only a course. It IS a life style that ITI has prepared a wonderland for those who want to experience it. The tutors are knowledgeable and helpful who lead you throughout the course. The staff and facilities are great. I miss every single moment during CELTA.

, CELTA student,

I loved everything about ITI especially the tutors, they are amazing! Just put on enough work, listen to their advice and you'll be on your way to success. I like the electronic equipment especially: two big printers, OHPs and high quality sounds systems. The staff are very kind, expect to hear a lovely Gunaydn if you come early at 8:00 a.m!

, CELTA student,

Everything was perfect I was totally satisfied with everything. The service and facilities were great. Education system and the tutors were amazing.Words are not enough to define

, CELTA student,

It was a one-month intensive course. I wish it had been longer. If it had been six or eight weeks instead of four, it would have been better. We learned a lot in this course and it changed my viewpoint in teaching. Although we were under a lot of pressure but on the other hand our supportive tutors helped us a lot.I want to thank them a lot. I think CELTA is a necessary course for teachers.

, CELTA student,

The Celta was a pretty intense experience and a lot of work to do in just four weeks. There were sleepless nights and heart attacks with every email notification. Now, I have a completely different view of teaching. It was like learning everything from beginning to end. Absolutely there's no end and I have to study and research every day to be an effective teacher.

, CELTA student,

I had a great experience, I learned so much. Tutors were amazing and professional - very helpful in my improvement, and staff were also very good, very kind.

, CELTA student,

Taking the CELTA course in ITI was an invaluable experience. I learned a lot about many practical teaching techniques, which changed my view on the teaching process. The tutors were really helpful and kind, and I enjoyed being with them.

, CELTA student,

It was one of the best decisions I made in my life. I was taught in a traditional education system myself for most of my life and this whole side of creative teaching techniques was new to me. I am so happy that I was part of this course. It has impacted my personality in a positive way and gave me a fresh perspective about teaching and learning. I am so excited to practice what I learned at ITI in education institutes in Pakistan. I am thankful for all the help my tutors provided me. I really appreciate their kindness, timely help and detailed feedback. I am so happy that I chose to take CELTA. I feel more confident now than I was before. I am thankful to ITI for giving me this opportunity to make new friends and to groom myself for my future teaching ventures.

, CELTA student,

Celta was a great experience for me because I had the opportunity to improve my teaching skills and make new friends. This experience also supported my personal development as I have learned to deal with challenges in a more positive manner. Additionally, the tutors were extremely helpful throughout the course because they gave useful feedback, which had a major impact on the improvement of my teaching skills.

, CELTA student,

The atmosphere was really friendly and professional at the same time which provided a chance of focusing on studying and learning as much as possible. It was an unforgettable experience.

, CELTA student,

The International Training Institute (ITI) provides a solid base for candidate who are looking forward to teaching English anywhere around the globe. The institute is known for its quality techniques and guides to the teaching of English that ends successful candidates at the end of the course with the CELTA certificate; a certificate internationally recognised. Its reputation and quality in this domain leaves no candidate with an iota of regret. ITI leaves me with an experience to remember and of which I will like to urge other candidates wishing to teach English to try as they will confirm their experience too later. The morning input sessions I must say were quite enriching to help develop one's teaching skills. Though I would be selfish to keep ITI 4 Levant all to myself, the work of the experience teachers is just to good to stay hidden for long. There's no doubt ITI is the best. Its training remains simple but has a remarkable impact and focus.. It is a healthy course, though it leaves you with sleepless nights and days in the course of its duration.

, CELTA student,

During the course, I learnt a lot and had great memories! Despite the sleepless nights and intensive work I enjoyed a lot! Our tutors were so supportive and helpful. Thanks for the great learning experience!

It was money well-spent! Enjoyed the CELTA while it was exhausting and draining! I had tremendous help from the tutors and I sometimes felt guilty overloading them with questions when they were exhausted and tired at the end of the day, and still they helped me!

It was a very exciting journey .I really enjoyed it.

, CELTA student,

It has been an interesting experience due I have learnt a lot of teaching techniques that will raise my class standards in future . I have learnt how to design my lesson plans by following the appropriate lesson shape according to my main aim and sub-aims . During the course I observed my tutors lead a student centred session and it is really more effective than a teacher centred . I felt that the CELTA course has been one of the most interesting experiences l have ever had.

, CELTA student,

Fantastic prep course with prompt and detailed feedback. Thoroughly recommended.

, DELTA Module 1 student,

The CELTA is definitely the best qualification I can get if I don't have any previous experience teaching. It set me up with the basics of English language teaching and at least give me the confidence to stand up and teach a class.

, CELTA Online student,

The ITI staff was very helpful and the facilities provided were mainly sufficient. However, the rooms for the TPs were very small. Also the placement test for the TP classes needs some improvement!

Thank you dear IT I Istanbul! I appreciate the support and valuable feedback you have given me.

, DELTA Module 3 student,

It was a unique, unforgettable experience to me. I've learnt a lot in each step of the course and became more confident with shifting my career into teaching.

, CELTA student,

Never have I trained in a professional center in my life.I believe what I took away from all the classes worths all the strenuous effort I made.

, CELTA student,

I really enjoyed the experience of doing a fully online course for the 1st time. Sally was always there to answer questions/doubts and she did so very quickly! thanks:)

, Cambridge Train the Trainer student,

It was stimulating and effective, I would have attended all sessions if I had the time to

, DELTA Module 1 student,

It was great - there was much information. I unfortunately couldn't keep up with everything, but I will definitely complete it again.

, DELTA Module 1 student,

I was such a wonderful experience for me. I have learnt lots of things. It was stressful and tough, yet rewarding I hope.However, I think if there is a live session per week, it will much more beneficial for all of us as candidates. Hopefully, you will take this suggestion into consideration.

, DELTA Module 1 student,

I would like to extend my appreciation for the amazing work done by you, admirable tutors, and kind staff.

, CELTA student,

Overally, it was good experience. Thank you

, Workshops - How to develop and add creativity to unconventional learning materials student,

The tutors are great, very supportive and helpful. The staff were also great, helpful and always welcoming. There was always a positive atmosphere with staff, teachers, students and everyone at the centre. Thank you to everyone at ITI.

Well, it was a really challenging course in terms of time management, but it is really worth it. It had everything you need: experienced and supportive tutors, international environment, valuable practice, efficient feedback sessions which are really important on the course, facilities were good and one of my fav was cafeteria and that small community around the table where we could have coffee, chat during breaks and share impressions. I loved Istanbul and I made good friends there.

The most practical course ever.

It was the best course of teaching I could ever imagine. The tutors, the staff, the facilities and everything,let us experience teaching in a more fruitfull way.

This course was a great opportunity to brush up things I knew and become a better teacher. Thank you all for your help and support.

, CELTA student,

I love ITI. I'll never forget all the friendliness and all the support from ITI. Everything we needed was there and nobody even mentioned once why you are in the library until 9.p.m. , and why are you using so much paper. The number of students for our teaching practices was high and that's another great point about ITI center. I just wish ITI could manage to give accomodation to celta trainees so as to avoid any conflicts with finding accomodation in Istanbul or problems with the landlords introduced by ITI. I could never see I will love an institute so much. Thank you all for this great feeling: tutors Tracy and Ramy, administrative staff Julide and Meral, IT staff Sahand, and all the Cafeteria staff.

, CELTA student,

Amazing

, CELTA student,

Celta was a really intensive and valuable course.I had a good time here and tutors were very helpful.I had excellent communication with everyone.Doing Celta course gave me the opportunity what I need in terms of knowledge and confidence to teach . Feedback was important to my development as a teacher,input from all other students was good as well. Definetely,I will miss the course.

, CELTA student,

The CELTA course is much more than learning how to teach English. The CELTA is about setting personal aims every day, every teaching practice, pushing yourself to do the things you've never done before and then feeling proud and rewarded in the end. It's about rising to the challenges, big or small, and feeling how you are growing both as a teacher and as a person. It's about giving (and receiving too ;-)) a supportive hug or an encouraging smile to your friends. It's about laughing, crying, sharing food and all the terrible assignment stories with each other. Was it the right choice? Yes. Will I recommend it to you? Absolutely!

, Short Courses - Developing Writing Skills student,

The most intensive and challenging course that I have ever taken, you can not imagine what I've experienced, highly recommended.

, CELTA student,

The conclusion is; everything was perfect! Huss, Liz, Majid, Tom, Sahand, Meral, Julide, Seden and the rest... You are lovely... Thank you very much for everything.

, CELTA student,

Wonderful experience

, CELTA student,

I am so impressed by the CELTA course at ITI. The tutors were phenomenal. The mixture of input sessions on various teaching topics, teaching preparation and practice, plus feedback from experienced tutors is the perfect mixture for learning how to teach English. I came in with no teaching experience and left feeling confident that I can really do this. It's a high learning curve, but it's worth it. I highly recommend it!

, CELTA student,

They are just perfect. Don’t doubt do your celta, delta and eveything there

, CELTA student,

It's a once-in-a-lifetime experience that literally knocks you down, but once you pull yourself together and stand up, you realize you've learned a lot. I'll definitely miss it.

, CELTA student,

It was a very good experience. I didn't think that 4 weeks will be enough to learn Teaching English. I have learnt teaching techniques that I have never learnt or even heard about during my study in the university.

, CELTA student,

Amazing experience

, CELTA student,

It was really a great experience for me!I obtained very valuable teaching techniques thank to perfect input sessions.I will never forget Rob's cheerful manners, Elna's important advice,Hass's positive input sessions!Ramy,I adore your teaching method!IT manager is a very friendly young man!Rich library,fresh and clean atmosphere!Administrative staff, I love all of you!Even I miss the tea that I drank there!CElTA would be very tough if all above weren't there!I love all of you!Kamala Javadova from Azerbaijan!

, CELTA student,

First of all I should thank everyone at ITI to create really good moments for us. A month full of educational and interesting and unforgettable moments. I am totally satisfied with the course especially my dear tutors Huss and Ramy. I really thank both of them especially Huss who made a lot of efforts for us. He is a tutor giving me a lot of motivation and commitment. Our input sessions with all tutors including Elna and Rob were fabulous. I really owe them.

, CELTA student,

So far CELTA has been the best professional experience in my life. ITI made it memorable for me, and I can’t wait to continue the journey of development. You’ll never regret the hard work. Just do it.

, CELTA student,

Everything was just fine and I had a really goid time studying there....the only not so good thing was the place getting overcrowded when both morning and evening ppl were there at the same time...the noise and the crowd was quite disturbing!

, CELTA student,

My tutor Ramy was very helpful and supportive. I want to thank him! The course, however, could have been less stressful if we had had more observation practice and more support from the tutors. It was a bit like throwing you into the ocean to see if you can swim. I would propose to change some things. But still, we've learnt. Thank you.
