English Teacher Training Buenos Aires
About the Centre in Buenos Aires
On the CELTA course the teacher training centre in Buenos Aires uses two fully-equipped classrooms for teaching practice and input sessions. Teachers have the use of a laptop and TV screen for showing video and audio, internet and PowerPoint presentations.
There is a teachers’ room for planning and coffee breaks with free tea, coffee and biscuits available throughout the day. Candidates have full access to our computers and a well-stocked teaching library and there is also free WiFi throughout the school. Photocopying and printing for lesson handouts and portfolios is all included.
The CELTA centre in BA is right in the centre of the capital, in between two metro stations. The area is full of bars, restaurants, shopping malls and convenience stores. The cinema is also just a few of streets away from the centre on foot. Getting away from the hustle and bustle of the city is also made easy, as one of the city’s main parks is only a stone’s throw away. In terms of getting around, cycling in BA is a great way to explore this vast capital. Options for public transport include buses and an underground metro system, one of the first to be introduced in South America.
Accommodation Buenos Aires
There is a wealth of accommodation available in Buenos Aires and we provide prospective candidates with access to detailed information about various options, including bed & breakfast/hostels; home stays; shared apartments; and flats, many of which have been recommended to us by previous candidates, through our specially designated accommodation blog. We will happily provide access information once your application has been received and can arrange home stay accommodation upon request, subject/according to availability.
Because of the intensive nature of the course, we recommend that candidates find accommodation as close to the institute as possible. If you wish to look for accommodation further away then you should ensure that it has good transport links. In addition, a quiet place to study and work in the evenings and weekends is essential and internet connection is invaluable.
Buenos Aires and Surroundings
Buenos Aires, located on the north-western shore, is the capital of Argentina and one of the largest cities in South America. Known as the ‘Paris’ of Latin America, the city is where European elegance meets Latin culture. This metropolis never sleeps, with its buzzing districts connecting one cobbled street to another, and quirky cafes and restaurants hosting both locals and tourists, you are sure to lose yourself in its art that thrives on sensuality. BA is highly known for its wine and quality steaks amongst most of its visitors. However, there is nothing more quintessential to the true porteño (as people from BA are called) lifestyle than leisurely drinking a good cup of coffee in one of the capital’s hip cafes, just as the sun begins to set.
