School Overview

School Description

ITI is an internationally recognised Cambridge English teacher training centre and the only Cambridge English approved centre for both the CELTA, ICELT and Delta courses in Turkey. We've successfully trained thousands of EFL teachers since we first began running courses in Istanbul in 1987. We have part-time, full-time and on-line options.

Location Overview

Istanbul is a major city in Turkey that straddles Europe and Asia across the Bosphorus Strait. Its Old City reflects cultural influences of the many empires that once ruled here. In the Sultanahmet district, the open-air, Roman-era Hippodrome was for centuries the site of chariot races, and Egyptian obelisks also remain. The iconic Byzantine Hagia Sophia features a soaring 6th-century dome and rare Christian mosaics.

, CELTA student,

Stressful but sweet and effective

, CELTA student,

I enjoyed this course very much. It was a pelasure to meet the tutors and learn from them. Everyone was so kind and caring. They would answer all question, as soon as possible. Taking this course was one of the greatest experiences of my life.

, CELTA Online student,

"It was unquestionably a once-in-a-lifetime experience for me. Memorable, unforgettable, spectacular, unique. The most remarkable thing about the course was its supportive and professional tutors Daria, Ayham, Mehdi, and Ramy. It was not easy, challenging, or demanding, but I enjoyed every class day by spending time with my tutors and other Celtees and learning from them. This was definitely the right decision to take the course.

, CELTA student,

This was a fascinating course. I have a clear insight into the type of teacher I am now. I learnt so much and felt privileged to be trained by such experienced teachers and tutors. Their sessions were brilliant as were their feedback and guidance. Apart from all this, the course reminded me and reaffirmed my love of teaching.

, CELTA Online student,

CELTA journey was absolutely beautiful! I learned a lot and I gained perfect experiences from great tutors.

, CELTA Online student,

Very demanding 4 weeks ;however you end up a worthy teaching experience as well as meeting amazing people:)

, CELTA student,

Great

, CELTA Online student,

I enjoyed the course because the tutors are enthusiastic people who put an effort to let students' understand the materials and they showed me that it is enjoyable to be a teacher.

, TKT Exam - YL student,

I had a great experience while taking this course. I have learned many things to carry on in my future career.

, CELTA Online student,

It was challenging but also useful and I gained a lot of good teaching experience.

, CELTA Online student,

The course was great, a lot of new information and practice, that is a priceless experience

, CELTA student,

It was such a great experience to study this course, I have learned a lot about my strengths and weaknesses with the help of my amazing tutors. Now I believe I am more capable of teaching different skills effectively.

, CELTA Online student,

Even for an experienced teacher, the course offers opportunities for professional development and new ways to make the lessons more student-centred.

, CELTA student,

The course was so enjoyable. It was designed in a way that enabled us t0 make the most out of it.

, DELTA Module 1 student,

It was an enriching course. I had a chance to discover my weaknesses and strenghts in teaching. All the shared information was useful and practical enough to improve my skills in teaching.

, CELTA student,

First of all, I appreciate for this wonderful course. I've learnt many things from the tutors and peers. The input sessions were also beneficial and lucrative. The only thing that I should mention as a negative point is about one of the input sessions that was about how to resubmit the assignment and as assignment 3 was the first one but we didn't know how to resubmit it as the input session took place after that, it seemed a little bit useless. All in all, everything was perfect. Thank you so much.

, CELTA student,

Very helpful and practical

, CELTA student,

Although very intense, the CELTA course has to be where I have learned the most about teaching. The course helped me to gain the skills and knowledge you will need as a teacher. This course gave me the training I needed to become an English language teacher. The course covers the principles of effective teaching and gives me a range of teaching techniques and practical experience. I got hands-on teaching practice and observation from experienced teachers, and I could apply my learning by delivering communicative teaching to English language learners. This course will be beneficial when I return to school, and I hope my students will benefit from all I have learned. If I have to summarise the system of CELTA, it has improved my English language awareness. It changed and developed my teaching methodologies and gave me the scope for a better understanding of learners. I believe that it improved me as a teacher. It upgraded my classroom management technique. I have enhanced my plan, resource lessons, and, last but not least, helped me develop professionally.

, CELTA Online student,

The experience I gained here is so valuable. It improved me as a teacher a lot. I am so happy about that and will never forget anything regarding this course.

, CELTA student,

It was hectic but rewarding

, CELTA student,

I did learn a lot from Daria! Best turor ever.the course overally was not bad but I expected more. I learned a lot from Daria since she is so knowledgeable and helpful. The course was the same as the teacher training course in Iran( which is being held in iran) which I took part in 2 years ago.so nothing new!!! Also the tutors were not really clear in giving instructions about assignments.the did not help us alot.so everything about the assignments was vague! Thank god I could pass all of them since I have got bachelor's degree in TEFL otherwise I would fail all of them.

, CELTA student,

, CELTA Online student,

It was a real watershed throughout my journey of learning English. As I had been teaching IELTS for years, I had a bit of experience in the field, but actually, I understood what I know about English can be written down at the back of the postage stamp, so the course was so motivating for me to study much deeper and avoid superficial understandings which was more of an illusion rather than reality.
