Questions & Answers

During the course, the trainers help hone your resume and interview skills, and they are happy to answer job-related questions,...
There are so many positions out there to teach English to businesses/ business professionals. I have taught several classes myself- in fact they were always the best classes to teach! One thing to keep in mind is that most companies will hire an ESL teacher for their employees through a language school. The reason for this is that companies want to make sure they are getting the best quality of...

Excellent Admin and Teaching Staff

From my first interaction with Teaching House, when I was researching programs in the fall, the enrollment staff were very pleasant and helpful. They gave me honest advice about where I could expect to get a job once I graduated. I spent nearly half an hour on the phone with them. They didn't rush me, and they helped me understand every step of the process. During the course, any time I needed help, they were always willing to drop whatever they were doing to assist with printers, help locate materials, books, supplies or CDs. The Director of the school would even pop into the computer lab from time to time when we were working on assignments late at night and she would check in on us to see how we were doing and provide technical (or emotional) support.
The teachers were awesome. I had Fiona and Sharon. Other reviewers have mentioned more one-on-one time with the teachers, but I felt that when I sought the teachers out for help, they were always willing to set aside time to provide feedback.
This course is intensive, but I feel like if you set aside enough time for it, and you are the type of person who made decent grades in college, then you probably won't have trouble on this course.

MyTeachinghouse.com was difficult to understand. My group had a hard time logging in. It could be better designed.

The Celta Surprise

The first day included a T/F exercise - " I will have time to go away for the weekend" - How little did I realize the truth of that statement being False! Intensive is an understatement of the time and commitment needed to finish the course successfully.
However - I can think of no better way to spend a month if you are looking to move into the ESL field. Our instructors, Amir and Robert, were exceptional. Information was coming fast and furious, but they somehow managed to give a sense that all can be accomplished with hard work and discipline. Teaching every other day was a critical part of feeling like what you learned could be put into practice. Assessment by instructors as well as classmates proved invaluable for improvement in lesson planning and teaching. Saturdays in the computer lab were an integral part of finishing all assignments with the support staff and classmates.
The surprise of the course was the relationships that were formed. Being surrounded with people with very similar goals and appreciation for all cultures is something that will not soon be forgotten. The CELTA experience added so much to my life. Not only an immediate job ( I know I was lucky to get one close to home until I can go abroad ), but friends and colleagues who will remain an integral part of my life.

How can this program be improved?
One thing specifically - You need to get another copier! One copier just is not enough in the morning before class, and after noon after class and before the night class.
It was very frustrating as the pace of the course did not leave a lot of free time to be waiting.

A great opportunity with great memories

Just being there on the course made some great memories, it was a wonderful experience and a chance to learn something new. The course itself was a bit hard specially during week 3, but it is worth all the lack of sleep and tension. After the course, when I got back to my routine and work I realized that having CELTA was the best decision of my life, not only do I apply the teaching methods into my lessons, but also apply the patience I learned and problem solving techniques to my personal level.
On the course, my tutors were very nice, patient and helpful. My colleagues were supportive and the students were always excited to have a new lesson.
On a personal level, knowing that I passed the course and have that certificate in my hand can always boost my self-esteem. It also helps with job interviews.
I always say you never know what CELTA is until you've tried it. I highly recommend this course, its worth the effort.

How can this program be improved?
Week 3 was super intense. Although I was able to finish both assignments on time, I wouldn't mind adding a few more days to give us (students) more time to be able to work in a better way.

October 2013 INTENSIVE

If you must take the CELTA course, this is the one to take. I do recommend, however, if you have the time and the resources, that you take the less intensive one, if only for your sanity. This is one INTENSIVE class. Note that word. INTENSIVE. Believe it.

Highlights: Magnificent staff. Friendly, courteous, helpful, resilient in the face of student meltdown, generous, thoughtful, unfailingly pleasant. (insert further encomiums here at your leisure).

Difficulties: Less than stellar printer/copier/computer to student ratio. The one copier was overworked. The joint could do with a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker as well.

I may have neglected to stress how intensive this course is. Just in case, let me once again reiterate another time [sic] that this course is intensive. Nevertheless, the result is worth every penny and shredded nerve.

How can this program be improved?
More copier/printers, please!

CELTA with Teaching House: awesome experience

From the very first day I contacted TH everything went smoothly thanks to the very high degree of professionalism and dedication of the TH staff. I cannot think of any step in the process of taking the CELTA at TH New York that wasn't adressed in the most efficient and friendliest manner.
I have to say that by the end of the second week of the the 4-week intensive program I encountered difficulties to cope with the workload and tasks deadlines. I talked to my CELTA tutor about it and she provided unfailing support and encouragements.

How can this program be improved?
The CELTA is about teaching adults but over the past year and a half, after completing my CELTA I've taught both adults and children. Teaching children wasn't my primary target but I almost had no choice if I wanted to work.
Even though we talked a little about teaching children, I think including a thicker chapter on how to adapt the CELTA method and techniques to children would be useful.

CELTA Adventure

The entire course was very intensive but fun and rewarding. The students were the key motivation on constantly trying to improve my lesson plans and teaching skills in the classroom. The teachers at CELTA were all helpful and were willing to help you if you had any questions or if you were struggling in a specific area. I believe there should be more than one copy machine because it wasn't fun when everyone wanted to use it at the same time. Overall, great experience. CELTA helped prepare me for my interview and current job abroad. I am a much more confident teacher thanks to CELTA!

How can this program be improved?
Just get another copy machine and the CELTA course level of stress will decrease a lot more for the students.
Yes, I recommend


I was at my location from the moment the school opened to the second it closed. TH has many resources and I fully utilized them. This is key. I would spend two evenings/days doing each lesson plan as that is how long you need to create a through lesson plan. The best part of the experience, besides making new friends, is all the feedback one gets from their trainers. The feedback is beneficial and is constructed in a way to help you and your classmates.

How can this program be improved?
I would have to say more time with the trainers. They work until 6pm and nothing more. It would be nice if they held office hours or were free during the lunch hour. It is hard to get one-on-one time with your trainers.
