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.

Course Feedback

I didn't rate the facilities and the location since it was an online CELTA course. Liz and Zahra, the tutors, were great. They provided the course participants with such practical and specific feedback that I learned much more from them than from other in-service trainings or PD events. The Moodle platform could benefit from an upgrade. Including more examples or sample work for the assignments would be very helpful. The assignments part of the course, in particular, was the most disappointing part. The CELTA course was overall very beneficial. Thank you so much, ITI!

, CELTA student,

The tutors were understanding and helpful throughout the course. Being observed and receiving feedback for my lessons and assignments was a valuable experience. I also found many of the things I learned throughout the course to be useful and have practical value.

, CELTA student,

In general, the course is productive. The input sessions and the tutors are all great but the tutors should focus on the exam practice in the sessions rather than spending too much time on theoretical parts. We didn’t have much practice for the exam. Also, information flow was problematic towards the end of the course. We couldn’t receive any email about weekly lesson planning from the tutors. They replied our emails very late. Additionally, some instructions in exam practices were ambiguous and it affected our scores. Lastly, some of the links in the documents and on Moodle are inaccessible since they are not working any longer. They should be updated.
