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.

Accommodation

A variety of accommodation options are available, upon request

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 was a demanding, but at the same time a highly rewarding experience. I would never have thought that I could learn that much within quite a short time. Now, when CELTA is over, I reflect upon this unforgettable experience and I do understand that it was worth all the effort put into it, all the sleepless nights spent, all the tears shed...Now I know my teaching will be different and a way better than it used to be before. I would like to thank my tutors, Tom, Liz and Jenny, for an extremely efficient and most sensitive guidance! If during the course I was doubtful if I would go for DELTA or not...Now I know it will be my next destination. And it definitely will be with ITI.

, CELTA Online student,

The course has been helpful to me. I have learned a lot. I would appreciate better communication at times, as well as clearer explanations of assignments

, CELTA Online student,

My learning/teaching personality favors rules and taking CELTA 2018 with ITI did appeal to my sense of order. It gave me that special feeling of power that comes from knowing what others do not. I do appreciate the true value of the techniques and principals I learned and that of the feedback I received from my tutors. I have learned a lot of learning lessons observing the experienced teachers, too. I am profoundly confident the experience will always stay with me till the end of my career.

, CELTA student,

Everything was perfect.

, CELTA Online student,

I can't believe that the course is over. It was intensive and stressful but it was rewarding and the best experience during my career life. The tutors were so helpful,supportive and friendly .Thanks go to both the administrative staff and the excellent tutors ITI had got.

, CELTA student,

Satisfactory! Tutors are supportive and responsive.

, DELTA Module 2 student,

It was a great experience. All the tutors were very knowledgeable and supportive, the staff was very nice and helpful as well. In addition, I liked all of my students. The course was a little too intense, but I managed to pull through. I enjoyed all the classes and facilities. Thank you

, CELTA student,

Before joining the course I had read some reviews of the students who had finished the Celta and mostly they were talking about the best experience that they had here. I wondered it is just a course and why should it be very special. At this very moment, I realize what they meant and Celta truly is one of the best experiences I have ever had in my life.

, CELTA student,

It was a useful course with lot of learning involved. I will definitely come back for my DELTA course sometime in the future and I will also recommend the center to interested friends.

, CELTA student,

Having passed a demanding course, I found out my weaknesses and strengths in English.i made a lot of good friends. This course made me work hard, besides the lesson plans were so helpful for i think they can stand for planning the whole life.

, CELTA student,

It was a wonderful experience. I learned a lot from my tutors. Though the course was harder than I expected, but it's totally worth it. I would recommend CELTA to any teacher who wants to start a career in teaching English.

, CELTA student,

A really well-organized course with excellent in-person sessions and an invaluable online element. Wonderful, respectful tutors who support you as much as you need through the process.

, Short Courses - Workshop Presenters Training student,

It is a well organised course, very good for people who work in places where no Delta course is run.

, DELTA Module 3 student,

The course was overwhelming, but with the help and the support of the tutors it turned out to be an amazing experience. I haven't been to CELTA course before but hands down we had the best tutors ever. Thank you Nikue Emma and Huss, and thanks to all of the staff members.

, CELTA student,

Highly recommended. I did Module 2 via distance and am thoroughly pleased with not only the ease with which the course unfolded but also the expertise, knowledge and guidance that Sally and the team were able to offer me.

, DELTA Module 2 student,

I would hihgly recommend it! Very professional and helpful tutors and staff.

, DELTA Module 1 student,

I thank you for your caring and follow up. Your overall efforts, commitment and work insight are highly appreciated.

, DELTA Module 1 student,

I want to thank all the tutors and administrators for their cooperation during the course.On the other hand, I have learnt a lot of new concepts that will help me with Module 2 and 3.It opened up a lot of new things I wish I knew when I first attempted Module 2 and 3 previously.

, DELTA Module 1 student,

I have got great benefits from this course

, DELTA Module 1 student,

Though the course was intensive and demanding, I found the content of the course really useful. Effective teaching techniques helped me run my Teacher Practices more easily. Learning more about different lesson plans and how to write a proper lesson plan and prepare a language analysis sheet based on a lesson's main aim made me more confident while teaching. Having different opportunities to observe experienced teachers, as well as observing our tutors in their demos and during input sessions made me observe different styles of teaching and helped me find my own teaching style. Applying different techniques in regrouping the students helped me make the atmosphere of my classes more lively and add more sense of humor to my teaching. Teacher Practice sessions create unique opportunities to experience teaching in real multilingual as well as multicultural settings. Moreover, teacher practice sessions helped me put different techniques that I have learned into practice and experienced the actual outcome of running these techniques in real classrooms, above all, receiving effective feedback from our tutors during feedback sessions was a great support. Applying different techniques by our experienced tutors during input sessions made the materials more tangible and unforgettable for me. On the whole, experiencing teaching by using professional techniques and under the close supervision of knowledgeable tutors made teaching more pleasant for me.

, CELTA student,

It was a challenging course, full of enjoyment of learning and experiencing new methods. The best part was being in an international team and making friends with the people who I wouldn't have met without participating in the course. I enjoyed every moment of the input sessions, TPs, and feedback sessions.

, CELTA student,

I can hardly believe it's finally come to the end. Despite the challenge, sleepless nights and tension it was awesome! Celta turned out to be a life-changing and overwhelming experience at the same time; it unlocked my potential, gave me confidence and motivation to move towards new accomplishments. I'd like to express my endless gratitude to Nikue, Huss, Emma, Michael, Ramy (the written order of the names does't mean anything, you are all precious to me). I also can't miss a chance to thank my peers; without their support I wouldn't be able to overcome obstacles on my way. I had the best team, and my success is the result of our effective collaboration!

, CELTA student,

I don't have any teaching experience and before the course started, I felt intimidated by the course itself. But, taking CELTA is one of the right decisions I made in my life. Yes, the course is demanding and intensive but rest assured that the staffs are very helpful and approachable. They assist in every way possible. The experience was fun and one of a kind. The course really helped me understood more in teaching English language. The methods taught are effective and helpful for both teachers and students. The 1 month in CELTA was so full yet so memorable. I had a great team. My colleagues were supportive as well as the tutors, they're the best. Two thumbs-up for CELTA in ITI.

, CELTA student,

Both the administrative staff and the tutors were quite helpful, supportive and approachable. The location's proximity to the metro station made commuting much easier for everybody. The IT employee was very friendly, always present and ready to help. If I could go back in time, I would definitely take the course again despite it's intense curriculum.

, CELTA student,

It was an amazing experience! The tutors were perfect and I already missed the dynamic and multicultural atmosphere of the place.

, CELTA student,

ITI is one of the best institutes I have ever dealt with. Everyone in that place helped us in a way or another to successfully get our CELTA. I appreciate all their efforts.

, CELTA student,

Excellent choice, incredibly professional tutors!

, DELTA Module 1 student,

It was an amazing experience I ever had in teaching field.I must apperciate all the tutors who were supportive , considrate and reponsive beside being a great source of knowledge.I would like to thank all the staff there .They were really friendly and kind to all of us to bear the burden .thank you all.

, CELTA student,

I took the blended CELTA and enjoyed it every step of the way. The course was well-organised and the workload reasonably distributed over 14 weeks. The feedback after each teaching practice was very useful and the course gave me the tools to plan out a basic skills or systems-based lesson. A huge thank you to Liz, Jenny, Robin, Tom and Marijke for your invaluable support and guidance, and for making us feel like one big family!

, CELTA Online student,

It was great experience. I found that my į Age of what a teacher's job was and how teacher should be have were drawn Large from what I had seen the Celta teachers were doing.

, CELTA Online student,

Assuming that I knew how to teach turned out to be something far-fetched. I learned so much at Celta and realized that I still need so much to learn. The course, in general pushed me to my limits in everyway and showed me how wide the teaching English can go. I loved this course! Would I do it once again if needed? Yes, definitely! Next stop; DELTA ;)

, CELTA Online student,

A warm and welcoming place with very helpful tutors Liz, Jenny, Tom and all supportive staff. Couldn't think of a better place in the world to get my Celta.

, CELTA Online student,

It was tough but incredibly useful. The tutors and staff are helpful and supportive all the time.

, CELTA Online student,

It was incredibly fruitful and helped me to broaden my perspective both in life and teaching.

, CELTA student,

I had a wonderful time working with professional tutors an instructors. So glad to be a part of extremely well-thought through programmes in ITI. That was the most adventurous experience ever.

, CELTA student,

I had a great time studying in ITI.... working with professionals and learning from them... generally it was the best experience of my life.

, CELTA student,

It was informative, and it helped sharpen my skills and helped me acquire new skills. Thanks to my tutors and the effort Cambridge has put into it, I have managed to gain more professional knowledge of the field.

, CELTA Online student,

Every teacher should experience it

, CELTA student,

Ohh it was tense, plenty of time and efforts consuming, but it was worth doing it as Cambridge Celta is an amazing platform. Tutors were so much helpful. The online platform is also easy to explore and work on with tons of useful information and resources. Jonon/Celta, Jan-April 2018

, Workshops - Phonology / Listening student,

The course was a great way to revisit my teaching techniques and refresh on previous skills as well as learning new practices, meeting people in the same field and sharing knowledge, ideas and friendship. It was really great to observe the experienced teachers and fellow trainees alike to gain new ideas - Thank you ITI I look forward to DELTA.

, CELTA Online student,

It was a great experience. I particularly liked that the tutors were always available and ready to help. I've learned so much and my methods in class have since improved. The interaction with different teachers from different backgrounds who had amazing ideas has sparked a level of creativity that I never knew I had. I cannot wait to use the ideas that I have learned through the course.

, CELTA Online student,

CELTA was an effective course both for teaching and learning English

, CELTA student,

This was one of the best experiences in my career. I enjoyed every minute of it.

, CELTA Online student,

My experience at ITI was fantastic. I felt like part of a community of other teachers. We sought to help each other in times of need whether it was for motivation or developing classroom material. I would recommend this course to others seeking to make professional development.

I had the chance to observe and being observed by different experienced language teachers. The feedbacks for each skill with different levels were very useful.

, CELTA Online student,

It was great

, CELTA Online student,

That was a fruitful course,tutors were unfailingly supportive. I can’t explain how friendly they were.

, CELTA student,

OMG!! I still can't believe that its over... It was stressful and very overwhelming, but it was the best experience in my life. After the first day I said to myself what the hell did I get myself into and I was literally thinking of not coming back the next day, but thanks to the motivations that I got from my classmates and tutor I made it till the last day. As much as I wanted to run away after the first day it took me hours to leave on my last day. I learned a lot in the last 4 weeks. I'm very happy and glad that I came to ITI for the course. All the staff and tutors are very supportive and very helpful.

, CELTA student,

It was a quite nice experience and i am looking forward to experiencing it again soon for DELTA course

, CELTA student,

The journey I had to take through CELTA was certainly no plain sailing. Sleepless hours, short deadlines and painstaking preparation for TPs could all tax your patience but in the end, the whole experience was positive and worthwhile as it gave me a new window on teaching and provided ground for future development.

, CELTA student,

It was very beneficial and motivational .I learned a lot,at the same time it was kind of eye opener for me that I know nothing and I have to study a lot. Tutors were excellent specially Huss ,Ramy,Liz,Tom and Nikue. What I liked most was their performance and practical way of teaching rather than giving speech in a theoretical way.Thank you so much.I am going to be proud of myself for being your trainee❤️❤️

, CELTA student,

Wonderful experience, despite the intensity of the course. The staff, the peers, the tutors, the surroundings, the locations and of course the city/country makes all the difference. I am grateful and thankful to have made the decision I did. :)

, CELTA student,

It was a pretty good experience I got to make new friends and to discover a new culture, it was challenging for me since I had no teaching experience, I just loved it.

, CELTA student,

It was the best course I have ever taken. I learnt a myriad of things during this course which raise my awareness and also change my attitude. I met supportive tutors who helped me try more. And I learnt that how I can become an effective teacher.

Challenging and rewarding experience.

It was the most challenging but the best experience I had. All the tutors were supportive and helpful all the time. With one word they are amazing. ITI was definitely the correct place to take CELTA because we felt like a part of ITI family. Thanks to everyone, I enjoyed every single moment. At the end, we were happy to finish finally the course, but we didn’t even want to say goodbye. Thanks for this great opportunity and the unforgettable time. 3rd March 2018 Kübra Bengisun
