Trainee Testimonials

"The CELTA is so much more than I thought it would be and I would go so far as to say it has changed my life.

Bold words and I didn’t expect to say that when I embarked on this but I believe it to be true.

Many, many thanks to all."

Alison, Fast Track Online CELTA

"I have learned to teach and to learn online which were completely new experiences to me.

I was quite sceptical about the extent to which distance learning / teaching can help to create a sense of cohort and community, I now know that it is possible. I now feel ready to teach. Thank you."

Barbara, Fast Track Online CELTA
