After CELTA, the world is your oyster! Doing the CELTA at IH London was an eye-opener for me; I am absolutely sure that being a teacher is my dream job.

Simone, Germany, CELTA

Our teacher was excellent, deploying a wide range of methodology and teaching techniques. She was really dedicated and empathetic, and taught me a lot of useful techniques for the classroom.

Robert, Hungary, CLIL

All the sessions and activities were excellent. The teacher gave me a lot of information about web applications and some good textbooks. I’m going to change my lesson plans drastically next semester!

Daisuke, Japan, Practical Teacher

I am eager to go back to my school to apply what I have learned. I have got solutions for less motivated students too. I feel I am completely ready to start a new year at my school. I would rate IH London 10/10!

Ghania, Oman, Technology for Teachers

The course exceeded my expectations. It was very easy to follow, thorough, logical, interesting and informative. I particularly enjoyed participating with the other students on the forum to learn from their experience and ideas.
