TESTIMONIALS

This course is challenging but the outcome is incredible. You discover new ideas, styles of teaching, methods. It’s like a breath of fresh air which gives you enormous motivation to work and develop. The tutors are very helpful, the atmosphere is great and you make friends with the people who come to study here 🙂

Julia, Ukraine

It was extremely professionally run – a top quality course and best tutors with immense knowledge. The best course I have ever participated in. Never before had I gained so much knowledge and practice at the same time. I highly recommend the course to those who are already teachers as it’s a huge eye-opener that will add another dimension to your teaching. You just can’t help implementing changes that make such a difference to you yourself and to your students.

Małgosia, Poland

It’s a great opportunity to get very detailed feedback on your teaching from experts and see teaching from a different perspective.
It is very well organized and the trainees are carefully guided towards independence. It taught me to face challenges with confidence and to understand that everyone is allowed to ask questions and make mistakes- it’s a vital part of any learning process. The course helps you to fully appreciate the importance of students’ well-being.

Kamila , Poland

The course is amazing. It’s hard, it’s challenging, but also practical, useful and extremely rewarding. Worth the effort. All the sleepless nights don’t matter when you’ve completed it.

Gosia, Poland

The CELTA course and everything I experienced doing it are one of the nicest memories. I learned plenty of very useful and practical things about how to teach, deal with teaching problems and how to build good relations with students and co-teachers. I also realized how crucial it is to be able to work as a part of a team. The atmosphere and the people were brilliant. I strongly recommend CELTA to everybody!

TESTIMONIALS

If you are still wondering whether to join CELTA in Warsaw, wonder no more. Great people and a great experience. I joined them for my spring edition in 2018 (weekends) and it was one of my best decisions last year. Not only did I meet some like-minded people from the field of teaching, but I was also able to learn plenty of new techniques that I use now on a daily basis. The whole team of tutors are fully-fledged specialists. They take care of your CELTA needs like no one else possibly could and they really know what they are doing. Just trust the process, stay patient, focus during the seminars and have fun with your students during your teaching practice. A real must for ambitious and challenge-seeking teachers!

Marcin, Poland

 

The material covered was comprehensive and presented in a very professional, practical, hands-on way – this was exactly what I needed. The tutors were wonderful, always available and ready to help, supportive and very specific as to what was required of us and what we were supposed to do in order to get better. Apart from that, I had a lot of fun and I met great people with whom I got really close. We could really count on each other (still can – we will definitely keep in touch). And the binder with various resources that we got in seminars is invaluable reference material for my future classes! I miss the centre already 🙂

Paulina, Poland

The tutors are one of the building blocks of the CELTA training course. I can happily say that all of them presented a high professional level and a range of unique approaches and teaching styles. They complemented each other and allowed the participants to benefit from a variety of teaching techniques. They were all motivating, helpful and approachable.

My advice is that the CELTA is a demanding course, but don’t get discouraged! The most important thing to remember is that you will get used to the rhythm and intensity of the course. Take advantage of every day and realize this is a unique chance to learn from your tutors and peers. Remember you are here to learn and grow. Stay positive and don’t worry about making mistakes!

Alex, Spain

We received a lot of support. The input sessions were both information-packed and fun. I firmly believe that everyone made progress, whether they started the course as complete novices or as teachers with years of experience. I’d fully recommend completing CELTA at this particular location.

Justyna, Poland

I found the course very inspiring. It shows you how to teach and how to do it in an interesting way. Taking part in the course is a very good idea for those who want to learn something more about teaching and also for those who need to learn how to teach from scratch.

Anna, Poland

 

The study centre is very well-equipped with multimedia projectors, computers, WI-FI, library, etc. The tutors were very professional and supportive. The CELTA course helped me use lesson time more effectively and master my professional skills. I learnt how to make instructions more effective and create lesson plans whose structure is logical and coherent. I learnt how to use new technology in the classroom and make my teaching more brain-friendly. I would advise candidates to come to Warsaw and experience a challenging but rewarding CELTA course here.

Svitlana, Ukraine

 

Our trainers had diverse strengths which ensured that we learnt something different from each one of them, and the course structure was aptly designed to ensure we got what we needed when we needed it. They were always ready to lend a helping hand (or a shoulder to cry on) and the feedback was always constructive.

The course has been incredibly useful in giving me a practical and solid methodology to provide my classes with more structure and student-centred activities.

Isaac, India

Doing the CELTA course in Warsaw was my best experience ever. The process is intense but the tutors who work at Lang in Warsaw do their best to help you. They are not only your teachers (tutors) but also friends, psychologists and advisors. They share all the knowledge a trainee needs. In general, I can say that the Warsaw centre is one of the best, and I will strongly recommend it to everyone.

Liudmila, Belarus

Because it gives a complete overview of the process of teaching, it raises awareness on what is important and gives very practical solutions and tools for your future ELT career. It also provides a clear framework for preparing and running a class, which may be particularly useful for teachers with little experience.

Adam, Poland

Milada Krajewska | Main Course Tutor & Assistant Course Tutor | Head of CELTA @ Lang

Milada works as the Academic Development Manager for the Lang Teacher Training Centre in Warsaw (ODN Lang), designing and organising professional development events for teachers of English and other languages. When she did her CELTA, she had been teaching for 17 years, and what she loved about her CELTA adventure was the way she was constantly challenged to develop her teaching skills despite years of experience in teaching, training and writing ELT coursebooks. A real eye-opener. As a CELTA trainer, Milada loves to observe how trainees spread their lesson-planning-and-running wings, how they turn into acute observers of their friends’ lessons and how much they benefit from giving and getting constructive feedback. Designing feedback and input sessions is the second best part of the CELTA tutoring experience for Milada.

Aeddan is a teacher, CELTA trainer and assessor who has been based in Krakow for over 10 years. A graduate in philosophy and applied linguistics, he takes great delight in learning first hand that most second language acquisition theories are wrong, thanks to his two small sons. With the experience of delivering and assessing CELTA courses in both Europe and North America, Aeddan is particularly interested in the issues of teaching large, multilevel classes and with minimal resources.
As he is rather too fond of saying that he doesn’t have any hobbies, he has children.

 

 

Amanda Davies | Main Course Tutor & Assistant Course Tutor

He has also been a school director, written teaching materials and delivered lectures and workshops for educational publishers. He now teaches in-company and is studying for an MA in Educational Management at the University of Bath, UK.
When he’s not doing this, he tries hard to fulfill his role as an ‘old dad’ and to find time to keep up with world news – perhaps because he can’t travel as often and as far as he’d like to…
