The Cambridge CELTA Certificate (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) is a worldwide recognised TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) course in teaching English. This is suitable for candidates who have little or no previous experience in teaching English as a foreign language or for teachers who are already in the ELT industry and want to hone their craft.

The course includes practical teaching with real foreign students in a classroom (physically or virtually), observation of professional TEFL teachers and completion of a variety of relevant written assignments.

The CELTA Courses in Florence offers you an opportunity to take the CELTA course guided by tutors from the highest standards in the industry. Their many years of experience on the field will enable them to:

  • provide you with a strong basis in English teaching practice and give you self-confidence in a classroom environment,
  • help you learn TEFL techniques to improve your interaction with students;
  • give you a qualification that can open up opportunities around the world and online.
