Hi Guys,

I'm seriously considering doing a CELTA at CLIC and wondered whether anyone has any recent experience of the school. I've had a dig around the posts and managed to glean some information, but not much that has been written recently.

Hopefully someone can help.

All the best,

9Ball

Can't tell you anything about the teacher training department or the CELTA course there but I know the Spanish department and their teacher training people, which I could recommend.

Real nice school building (love their patio!) and Seville itself is a lovely city.

Bit late to the party but I did my CELTA there in June 2008, and I highly recommend it. Seville is a lovely city and I found the trainers at IH very helpful and supportive. Go for it!

I did it there this June.
It is good, I found it hard work and I wasn't 'a star performer'.
However, the teachers are fair and you learn as much as you put into it even if you only get a pass like myself! I don't plan to be an ESL teacher for life but the methodologies taught on the course have given me transferable skills for other forms of tutoring that I want to go back to, i.e. digital art etc.

^^^bumped.

I have been looking at Clic IH Seville's website and am considering their full-time intensive Delta course for the Autumn of 2016. I like it that their course is nine weeks long and their tuition is cheaper than most other schools' Delta course tuition.

I am intrigued that you are asking people to vet the place where you will do CELTA. That shows you are experienced, or shrewd. You ought to try to research schools you are going to work in too of course.

Hi, I'm also researching the CLIC IH CELTA in Seville for fall enrollment. I'm curious as to why asking people to vet the place I'll do CELTA shows experience or shrewdness. I've already been researching for months because I've found so much about scams and poorly taught courses in the TEFL industry. I'm hoping a forum like this will be a good resource to help "vet" my options. Is this not the case?

Thank you.

Like SIT TESOL and Trinity CertTESOL, the CELTA is a standardized exam. It's administered and vetted by Cambridge English Language Assessment. The course content is the same curriculum, same methodology regardless of where it's completed. The only vetting you might be concerned about are the facilities the course provider offers (e.g., free wifi, a break room/lunchroom, a small library of study materials, fax and copy machines, etc.). That's info that you can ask the course provider directly.

Okay, thank you!

I've found some complaints about specific course providers so it seemed to me that there are some differences in the level of instruction quality between providers, even if the material is the same. I'm a career changer so I'm interested in getting the best quality available since I'm looking at this as a long-term scenario.

I appreciate your response! Thanks!
