"The CELTA is so much more than I thought it would be and I would go so far as to say it has changed my life. Bold words and I didn’t expect to say that when I embarked on this but I believe it to be true. Many many thanks to all and especially Brian, Steve and Magda, and also Rika who looked after my initial application."

"The consistency, professionalism and availability of my tutors have enabled me to complete this course. They found a way to challenge me and encourage me in the right ratio. Those tutors have been, for me, the best thing about this course. They have demonstrated the qualities that we need to adopt in our own work."
Andrew Shane, Online Fast Track CELTA student
"I think the enjoyable nature of it came from the dedication and hard work of the tutors. They provided a relaxing environment and were always on hand to help us whenever we had any issues. The knowledge of the tutors was extraordinary, and I can safely say that I’ve learned far more in these 4 weeks than I did in my entire 4-year university experience."
Ilya Vaiman, Online Fast Track CELTA student
"The whole CELTA journey was excellent as a whole. The pre-course information was detailed and clear. More importantly, the teaching practice really helped me to improve my teaching skills a lot. They gave me a lot of useful suggestions by observing my teaching practices, and the input sessions were also very helpful and interesting."
Tianjiao Linghu, Online Fast Track CELTA student
"I am really glad I decided to take part in this course. I learned a lot and I feel like I made great progress in my teaching career in every short space of time. The input sessions were interesting, and I was able to take on board everything I learned and put this into my classes. Moving from the face to face course to a fully online course went surprisingly smooth. Teaching on Zoom actually gave me a lot of opportunities to experiment with software and materials."
Matthew Eckersly, Online Fast Track CELTA student
"The course has exceeded all my expectations. The input sessions have been incredible, a massive learning experience. The challenge has been superb. I will absolutely recommend this training to anyone thinking about developing themselves."
