Cape Town CELTA Reviews
Sea Point Reviews:
The facilities were good and they gave us a chance to fully prime ourselves for the world of ESL teaching. The tutors were helpful and they gave effective support and advice. The course has been good for both professional and self-actualisation purposes, and I have learnt so many things about the field ESL that I earlier… Read more “The course has been good for both professional and self-actualisation purposes”
There was a great flow between teaching practice and the input sessions, especially in the first week. I enjoyed the daily timetable the growth as a teacher in training, continuously feeling challenged as the weeks went on. Enjoyed the input sessions very much. They were informative and fun. Our class was always engaged and that… Read more “The course was worth it. Absolutely amazing how much I’ve learned in a month”
The input sessions were very informative. The tutors really practice what they preached, incredible knowledge taken from each and every day. Great location, comfortable facilities with plenty of supportive materials and resources. Overall, amazing course. I’ve learned so much, so much more than expected for teaching practices, language, analysis and soft skills in general. The… Read more “Great location, comfortable facilities with plenty of supportive materials and resources”
The organisation of the course was very good. Well laid out and it was organised in a way where the tutors gave us the means to pass, we just have to work for it. All materials and course books were readily available. The input sessions were a great learning environment. Friendly tutors that we can… Read more “The tutorials were very informative and effective feedback on yourself as a teacher”
The CELTA course for me has been an intense yet rewarding experience. It had developed me both personally and academically. I can now say I am a teacher, I am able to communicate successfully and connect with students over the best language in the world! I’m glad I did it and most important I gained… Read more “I’m glad I did it and most important I gained a new family that I plan to keep for a long time”
My experience at the teacher training centre in Cape Town was one of the most challenging and rewarding times of my career. The course design allows for non-stop scaffolding and learning. Absolutely worth the investment, plus it’s located in a safe & beautiful part of the city! Thank you for the opportunity to grow!
The facilities were fine, and in particular the electronic materials and equipment were excellent. Rooms that were used were well equipped and lit, though a little cramped when large groups of students were present. We also needed a little more air circulation! The tutors were well organized, disciplined and taught, as experienced teachers do, by… Read more “The facilities were fine, and in particular the electronic materials and equipment were excellent”
I highly recommend the Cape Town (CBD) centre as a CELTA training centre. The tutors are experts in the field, and their excellent input and feedback made all the difference. It’s a tough course – but well worth the long hours.
My tutors, Sharon and Melissa, at the Cape Town CBD centre were supportive and inspiring. Although the course (or rather the amount of work hours one needs to put in to the course!) was seriously challenging, one can excel with the guidance of good tutors. Without their experience and wisdom, I really would have struggled.… Read more “One can excel with the guidance of good tutors”
The course was good, fast paced, very stressful and way too much work crammed into four weeks. The tutors were very supportive and I guess they’ve seen many students drop out. We started with seven students and finished with four. I think if the course was at least one or two weeks longer, there’ll be… Read more “The course was good, fast”
The facilities were up-to-date, and the library was well-stocked. The tutors differed in terms of their teaching and tutoring styles, and gave just enough support to the student teachers. They were both highly skilled and experienced, and this was evident from our teaching practice feedback sessions. Despite having a PGCE and having taught English previously,… Read more “The 4 week intensive course is just that – intensive”
The facilities were excellent, everything I needed during the course was provided. The tutors were excellent, very helpful and supportive. The CELTA has been a great addition to my skill set and personal experience. It’s opened up many new paths for me. My advice to others thinking of taking the CELTA would be to definitely… Read more “The tutors were excellent, very helpful and supportive”
The facilities were up to standard, even beyond my expectations. I had the best tutors ever, the support they have given me was so amazing. It has been great to study CELTA, I learnt to work under pressure and team work. I have met wonderful people who have become a family to me. It has… Read more “I had the best tutors ever, the support they have given me was so amazing”
The facilities were well-equipped and user-friendly. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. The tutors were very helpful and supportive. They were well prepared for lessons and professional but approachable. The course was extremely useful to me. I now have the confidence to teach adults and know what I’m doing and how to reach my objectives.… Read more “The facilities were well-equipped and user-friendly”
