    “The CELTA course that I took at St. Giles London Central was well worth the money spent. The tutors are extremely knowledgeable and experienced and they did a great job equipping us during our time as trainee teachers. The input sessions gave a great foundation on which to base our teaching practice”.

    “Doing a CELTA course at St. Giles London Central was one the most rewarding experiences of my life. Though I taught for 8 years before the course in my country, it revealed methods and strategies of teaching English language which were new to me. It changed my way of teaching and gave me a lot of confidence”.
