Location :Right in the centre of the city centre and close to buses and metro, making it accessible to everyone no matter where you are staying, on a street with cafés and people throughout the day. I felt safe. Facilities:Spacious classrooms, fully equipped with IWB, CD players, library, study room. Available microwave if you want to have your own lunch. Excellent photocopies and free WiFi.

Staff: excellent tutors who know their job, know what they are doing and help you learn, if you are willing to.

All in all a most gratifying experience which gave me the opportunity of a lifetime. Of course it was rough, getting through all this in 4 weeks, but totally worth it! Best money I ever spent!!!! 2019 is going to be my 2nd year teaching in another country and I owe it to CELTAthens.

Location: Terrible. Situated in a back alley with a mountain of garbage piling up, making the air unbreathable. Graffiti everywhere. Rough area. Felt unsafe after dark.

Facilities: Terrible. Classes are tiny and cramped. Air-conditioning is awful: people at back of class too cold, people at front too hot. Not enough chairs so you must carry your chair from classroom to classroom. Unsuited for learning, in my opinion.

Quality of teaching: Poor. Teachers seemed to lack motivation and interest in their job. Generally appeared like they wanted to be somewhere else. I cannot say I blame them. That’s how I felt the minute I walked in.

CELT Athens seemed far more interested in taking my money for a CELTA qualification than delivering a quality educational experience. My advice: Run away. Run away and get your qualification directly from a legitimate establishment like the British Council, rather than this terrible school.

Biggest complaint: Finished 1/2 the course, fell, had an accident and had to go on antibiotics for something I ate. The school asked me to write an e-mail and that I could redo the course at no additional cost. Asked the next year and they said I could have a small discount. This was dishonest and only done because of newer compitition. Quality is great, integrity low.

Doing the Celta at CELT Athens was really quite an exciting and memorable experience that has a stunning impact on me. In fact, I was impressed by our trainers’ knowledge of subject, i.e. methodology and language analysis. I also liked the guidance and the ideas they often came up with for our lesson plans and their thorough feedback on our TPs. They really spared no effort to guide, help and support us throughout the course.

I completed the intensive CELTA course in CELT Athens in July 2014. It’s been the most exhausting experience of my life so far…. and I’ve given birth! : )

However, I couldn’t have chosen a better place to do it! The tutors are professional, knowledgeable, and patient; they provide excellent guidelines for the assignments and the TPs and their feedback is exactly to the point. Everyone in CELT Athens does their best to help the trainees.

Despite the workload, the sleepless nights and the countless hours facing my laptop I managed to get a Pass A which, however, couldn’t have been achievable without their continuous support and reinforcement.

All in all, they helped me believe in myself and my abilities. I consider them to be my “academic family” and I’m looking forward to meeting them again for DELTA next year!

Thank you CELT Athens!
