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.

Accommodation

A variety of accommodation options are available, upon request

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.

Student Reviews

Words most commonly used to describe this centre


It was an effective course for me. Although I have been teaching English for a long time, I learned lots of new techniques and approaches. I recommend that every English teacher should take this course. The course provided us good opportunities on Moodle, but I prefered to have more input lessons with our tutor before TPs. Live classes were really useful and helpful for me. In TPs, lessons were connected to each other. In one of my TPs, my peer had a problem with internet connection, so I had to take the class. In the lesson I taught , students should have known the words in the previous lesson. It was ok for me, but in some situations this may be a problem. I'd like to thank to Liz. Whenever I wrote to Liz no matter what the subject is, she tried to answer my questions immediately. Also, I want to thank to Özlem and Sultan . They are very valuable tutors. Their feedback after each tp were very precious for me.

, CELTA Online student,

CELTA is the most intensive and demanding teacher training that I've ever had. But, thanks to all the tutors kind help and guidance from ITI, I achieved it at the end. Plus, the kindness and supportive ITI team is the great advantage of the whole course. I couldn't imagine my ESL journey without this CELTA training. Intensive, stressful and exhausting, but at the end, absolutely worth it.

, DELTA Module 3 ELTM (Management) student,

ITI's CELTA part-time (12 weeks): 1) Extremely demanding: I could never have imagined how much time and effort it required. Don't consider it part-time. 2) Extremely rewarding: one of the best courses I have ever taken. 3) Tutors: supportive, knowledgeable and an absolute pleasure to learn from. Note: The instruction on the handouts and to-do lists were generally confusing for me and unfortunately I got into the habit of asking for clarification little bit late. So, make sure you ask everything and anything you're not sure about.

, CELTA Online student,

It was an extremely wonderful experience. I've learned a lot of new things such as sources, how to teach appropriately and so on.

If I were to rate the tools, I would definitely give 5 stars to them as well.

, CELTA Online student,

A valuable experience

, CELTA Online student,

Awesome

, Workshops - How to motivate learners online student,

Generally, it was a good experience, but it would have been better if few things were different. I think the timetable should have been scheduled in a more wise and practical way to be parallel with the course itself. Some of the input sessions were so important and much more time should have been given to them. Besides, they should have been dealt with in more details. Other input sessions were given more time than they really needed. The first days we were bombarded with document and and files that made us confused and not knowing what to focus on. The samples attached with the assignments should be perfect ones made by tutors and not taken from some candidates. We followed them and yet tutors criticized our work. Celta is being recognized as the course that is specifically made for non experienced teachers, yet the course wasn't at all for non experienced teachers. The input sessions, the TPs, the assignments are all based on prior knowledge of linguistics, phonology and other fields including terms and language that only teachers know. I enjoyed taking my course with you and with my tutors. Thank you all. I wish you the best.

, CELTA Online student,

The course was really intense as the name suggested. I learned so much in such a short period of time which is incredible. I think tutors' support was the most essential part of my journey. Thank you all for that.

, DELTA Module 2 student,

It was worth it!

, CELTA Online student,

It was such an adventurous and fulfilling journey. I learned something new every single day. The tutors were all perfect, knowledgeable, supportive and insightful. I highly recommend this course.

, CELTA Online student,

It was a fabulous experience I had with ITI taking the CELTA that I won't forget.

, Workshops - Adopting Active Learning in Online Classes student,

Since I didn't have previous teaching experience, learned everything from scratch during the course. It was an amazing experience

, CELTA Online student,

It was great, applying for the course with the support of your kind staff, specially Cemre Ece. And about the course the tutors were knowledgeable, absolutely kind, and supportive.

, CELTA Online student,

Thank you for a mentally stimulating and enriching experience.

, CELTA Online student,

It was a great chance to get this experience. Everything has changed in my mind about teaching after this course. Now I know how to organize a really engaging and methodologically correct lesson! Thank you!

, DELTA Module 1 student,

The course not only created a better teacher out of me, but also gave me the perspective to look into the aspects of the teaching methods with a critical eye. I am also very happy to get the chance to interact students from different cultures and exploring their learning needs with possible challenges has been very interesting.

, CELTA student,

My experience in ITI was amazing. The tutors and the administration were available whenever we needed them as long as the use of the library was very helpful for the preparation of our TPs and assignments.

, CELTA student,

It was great.

, CELTA student,

It was a well-qualified and beneficial course. I am glad to choose this institution and work with my tutors, they are great at what they are doing. Thanks for everything :)

I've just finished the course. It was such an amazing experience. I would like to thank the tutors ,Elena, Ramy, and Ayham. I also thank the administration and the other staff members for being sot helpful.

, CELTA Online student,

The best training Institute I’ve ever been !!!

, CELTA student,

It was a great experience taking CELTA at ITI. The Tutors were amazing, supportive and knowledgeable. The facilities provided were helpful.

, CELTA student,

I wish I have had this kind of training many years ago. I could have been a better teacher. I learned many new things about language and especially phonology. The methods the tutors used gave us the opportunity to create mental links and I'm sure I will remeber this course for ever. I haven't had so professional trainers so far. Thank you.

, Workshops - Learning Difficulties, Dyslexia student,

Tutors are very supportive, helpful and professional.

, DELTA Module 3 student,

The tutors and administrative staff were amazing, highly qualified and most kind at all times. It was a pleasure studying with ITI. As our course was given online I'm afraid I am not qualified to rate neither the facilities nor the location.

, CELTA Online student,

It was a great and fantastic experience.

, Workshops - Adopting Active Learning in Online Classes student,

I took a 9 month online CELTA course with ITI. I learned so much from my tutors and from teaching practice. The tutors were very professional, knowledgeable, and provided a lot of 1-on-1 support. While I'd had some teaching experience before, I didn't know much about specifically teaching to ESL learners. I now feel very prepared to design and lead ESL lessons. Be warned; the course is a LOT of work, but I think it's worth it.
