London CELTA Reviews
British Museum Reviews:
I had been told at the interview stage that this was going to be an intense experience. However I wasn’t completely prepared for how stressful it could be at times.
Despite this, I found the course to be thoroughly engaging and interesting and the tutors well-prepared and helpful.
I would definitely recommend this… Read more “The course was thoroughly engaging”
I had no teaching experience but I wanted to try something new. CELTA was recommended to me by a family member. At first I was nervous because the course was only for four weeks. Then, I was worried but the structure of the course and the teaching practice has built my confidence. I have enjoyed… Read more “The teaching practice has built my confidence”
The course was amazing! The tutors were not only highly prepared and experienced, but they were also very kind, accessible and caring. Indeed, they made us all feel really supported during our ups and downs throughout the course. Their feedback was always constructive and enriching. I strongly recommend London British Museum for all those looking… Read more “The course was amazing!”
I just finished the full time CELTA at London British Museum. Although I wanted to do the Thessaloniki one, unfortunately it was cancelled. So London was the next one that had suitable for my dates. The 2nd half of the course and my then tutor Tim is the only reason why I am writing this… Read more “Very fun to work with, an excellent manner”

The tutors were great and I felt… Read more “It was intense yet satisfying”
The course is a very intensive one. I learned a great deal from it, even though I had done an online course earlier in the year. The teaching was excellent and this included the supervision during afternoon sessions where we were able to teach classes ourselves right from the start of the course. The concentration… Read more “I learned a great deal from it”
My experience was GREAT. Brilliant staff, brilliant tutors. I couldn’t find any better. Honestly, I enjoyed every single day there. Just wish you the BEST GUYS. Hope you will achieve more and more. Never stop working. You all deserve it. Lots of love and hugs from me. FËLLANZA CANOLLI
The teacher training centre had very good facilities. The tutors were incredibly supportive. They give you clear and transparent feedback. I really enjoyed working them. Personally the course has been an enriching experience, I have learnt a lot about teaching methodologies and also my own strengths and weaknesses. My advice to others interested in taking the… Read more “Personally the course has been an enriching experience”
The facilities were well equipped, with many resources at your disposal. This was an extreme benefit. Additionally, the centre was very comfortable. The only small downside was that early on especially the technology was the easiest to use and sometimes hindered rather than helped the teaching process. However as the course continued this became less… Read more “My tutors were both very supportive and made themselves readily available throughout the course”
Russell Square Reviews:
I’m so glad I decided to take this course. The training was of a very high standard. The tutors delivered our teaching training sessions using the same methods they were expecting us to use with students, so we were absorbing good practice and helpful strategies the entire time. Jo and Neil were friendly and supportive,… Read more “I am so glad I decided to take this course”
London Russell Square’s CELTA course is a thorough preparation for English language teaching. The tutors are inspiring, encouraging and supportive. The level of challenge is maintained throughout the course and this was evident in the progress made by all trainees on my course. Tutors were helpful and approachable, yet also able to ensure that all… Read more “A thorough preparation for English language teaching”
The course is really demanding in terms of workload and it’s one of the toughest things I have ever done. Nonetheless, it’s definitely worth the effort and the money put in it. You just need to forget about having a private lite for 4 weeks. I was in a small class (4 mixed-aged ladies) and… Read more “The course is really demanding”
The school is strategically located, within 5 minutes’ walk from Oxford Circus Station. The school has good facilities such as library and cafeteria. Being a vegetarian, I specially appreciate the fact that the cafeteria offers good choice of vegetarian meals. The cafeteria conductors were also pleasant and very welcoming.
All the teachers conducting our… Read more “CELTA course was an eye opener to new methodology of teaching skills.”
It was a very rewarding course. I had been teaching for a couple of years prior to attending this course but this course really altered my perspective towards English language teaching. The tutors were extremely supportive throughout the course. They were strict and very direct. But both of them were very good at motivating us… Read more “It was a very rewarding course”
The facilities were good and always availability of laptops and study space. There was always someone available to help if there were any problems and even though there were only two printers available, everyone still got their work printed on time! The grounds of my success on passing the CELTA was due to the guidance of… Read more “The facilities were good”
Having graduated with a degree in English and Psychology I decided that doing a CELTA course was the best way for me to see the world and get to know a wide range of cultures and people – and between teaching English in Cambodia, Korea, Laos and of course London, it certainly has made that… Read more “From day one I remember their sheer enthusiasm”
Doing a CELTA is a very intensive experience. So be prepared to dedicate a lot of your time to it. You will, however, be rewarded, as you can learn a lot in a relatively short time! Even if you have quite a bit of experience in teaching, you won’t be twiddling your thumbs. You will… Read more “Doing a CELTA is a very intensive experience”
It was an incredibly useful, although intensive, CELTA course. I have been able to improve my knowledge and teaching skills with the help of the course tutors Claire Marshall and Kathy Byrne, who have done their best to share their knowledge of teaching English as a foreign language. By the end of the course I… Read more “I was able to deliver engaging student-centred lessons”
I found the course well-structured. The staff were incredibly helpful and on hand to answer any questions that we had. The facilities were great – the technology always worked, most classrooms had an interactive and non – interactive white board which was useful to keep a record of vocab on one, as well as being… Read more “I found the course well-structured”
I have just finished the full time CELTA course in London Highgate. This was one of the best learning experiences I have ever had and I would highly recommend this course in this location without reservation. Even though the course was very intensive for four weeks, the tutors, Jo and Phil, made it so accessible… Read more “A great all-round experience and one I would highly recommend!”
Taking the full-time CELTA course in London Highgate, England was a good decision. In fact, Darren and Joel -my tutors- were intelligent and kind. The school, facilities and staff included, was the perfect location for anybody who wants to have a good experience.
My CELTA course was just wonderful! Highly professional trainers were able to share their knowledge as well as challenge and guide us in our training. It was intense, but I would not exchange it for any other experience (nor any other location). Observation tasks were great, as London Highgate has excellent teachers overall. Later on,… Read more “My CELTA course was just wonderful!”
Going to this school was a great decision. The area is beautiful and relaxing. The people at the school were very nice and helpful. The teachers were amazing! They were supportive and encouraging. They were knowledgeable, good at their jobs, so it was reassuring that they could help me improve as a teacher. I loved… Read more “Going to this school was a great decision”
I found the CELTA course in Highgate hugely intense but fabulously rewarding. The course design was probably the best I’ve ever come across, managing to cover a terrific amount of ground in the shortest possible time while still allowing us space to ask and reflect. It seemed to expose us to new ideas and methods… Read more “Hugely intense but fabulously rewarding”
Generally the facilities were quite good. We had an interactive white board in one of our teaching classrooms, as well as an overhead projector for the second room. The books available to us, both course and methodology, were numerous. The only problem we had was that only 1 of the 3 computers set out for… Read more “They were excellent teachers, tutors and mentors”
