Overall I felt the course was very useful and the certificate in and of itself will help me find more job opportunities. The opportunity to teach students in a live class was very helpful as well as practicing making lessons and lessons plans.

I took the online intensive course and found it very well designed. The tutors were very experienced, worked hard, and gave very valuable feedback. I learned a great amount in a short time.

The only thing I would recommend is to think carefully about choosing the intensive course. It personally worked out for me because I get to start that much sooner, but in hindsight I would not have chosen the intensive course. There’s no pressing need for it to be that serious, unless thats the window you can take off from your current job.

I’m very glad I chose this course however.

I learned a lot in my 10 week online course with The Teaching House, and both of my course tutors were excellent.

There were resources for creating Lesson Plans that were never reviewed with us, that would have made the first several weeks of the course much more straightforward.

The course took upwards of 30 hours per week of my time, which is not a reasonable expectation for a course billed as part-time.

Several times the information given to us (links, dates) were incorrect. No apologies or corrections were made.

Most disappointing is that all of the CELTA coursework, all of it, is geared toward teaching and learning face-to-face. TH should not offer an online course with only face-to-face coursework.

Everything was great. I really enjoyed the course and, though I worked harder than I ever have in my life, I gained such a lot – including a number of new lifelong friends. Highly recommend Teaching House for their expertise, smooth enrolment process and inspiring course tutors.

This course was intense but trained us very well for teaching! By the time you finish, you will have taught 8 classes with up to 18 adult students. Great experience and extremely challenging. I see why it’s considered the most prestigious certification!

Mine was a 100% online course. I loved it. The teachers help you a lot throughout the course.

My three tutors were exceptionally talented. They were Mr. Bjarne Vonsild, Ms. Svitlana Bulkina, and Ms. Ana Jereb.

I actually talked rudely to them once. However, they handled the situation without being as ungrateful as I was.

All these characteristics are applicable to Ms. Lizzy Adams as well.

Thank you, Teaching House!

CELTA was an intensive, well organized, well taught course. I accepted their instruction with an open mind, which is important because it is different than how I learned other languages. Each week appropriately challenged us and build upon the previous week. I am very satisfied but exhausted from the experience!

I’ve just finished the CELTA course through Teaching House Portland. I didn’t have teaching experience prior to taking this course, so I had really no idea what to expect.

Teaching House sent out several things to do before the course. I did most of them; in hindsight, the most useful of them was reading Learning Teaching by Scrivener. I would advise people that haven’t taken the course yet to get The CELTA Course Trainee book by Watkins as well – having not been a teacher, it would have been good for me to be able to get an overview of what was going to be taught in the course.

They throw you into teaching right away! They do give you what you need to prepare for your teaching practices, but this course is all about the actual teaching practice, preparing for teaching practice, and learning from teaching practice. Don’t get me wrong, there is theory, but you will start this course with practical work and you will finish this course with practical work. For me, that was what I needed.

Both of the tutors that I had were excellent. They were both very different styles, and I learned different things from each of them. But both were very kind and patient through the whole process, and they really want you to succeed.

I put this on the course evaluation, but the coursework itself isn’t very mobile friendly, which is just part of the platform. The other thing that I think would help learners coming in to the course is to become familiar with Google products, particularly Forms, Docs, and Jamboards. Knowing how to use these tools will save you a lot of headache as you plan your lessons.

Overall, going in, I didn’t have the faintest clue what I was doing. Coming out, I feel confident that I could take lesson material and teach English language learners. That’s a pretty amazing thing to me. If you’re considering it, and you’re looking at the price tag, it is worth the money. Even if you are already a teacher, this will really enhance your skills.

The course makes teaching English scientific imparting many analytical tools. At the same time it acknowledges that teaching is an art that takes establishing rapport and creatively engaging students.

I have just completed the CELTA course. Both of my tutors were exemplary. They had broad and deep knowledge of the teaching profession and led us from the first steps of lesson planning and online interaction with the students, to become confident and competent professionals. They supported us and our professional development throughout the process.

The only real difficulty with the program was the website which was not user friendly. This was updated during my course and is much improved. I would recommend this course without reservation to aspiring teachers who want to teach English to speakers of other languages.
