Certificate of English Language Teaching to Adults
The CELTA course, previously run jointly between IH and the British Council Milan, is now exclusively offered and managed by IH Milan according to International House’s rigorous and industry-wide recognised high standards.
The CELTA is pre-service, meaning that it is aimed at people with little or no teaching experience. It is also suitable for teachers with teaching experience but little or no formal training. It is considered to be a solid basis for teaching English as a foreign language. The course is recognised by EFL world organisations and is the most highly respected certificate of its kind.
The course consists of seminars with your tutors in the morning, where you will learn about different teaching techniques and aspects of language, and teaching practice in the afternoon. Here you will have the opportunity to teach real students, and afterwards you will get feedback on your lessons from your tutor and your peers.
A typical timetable looks like this:
09:30-11:00 Input session 1
11:15-12:30 Input session 2
12:30-13:30 Assisted lesson planning (ALP)
14:30-17:00 Teaching practice
Candidates must be at least 18 years old (at the start of the course) and, generally speaking, must have a level of education which will enable them to enter higher education in their own countries.
The courses are held in our school in Milan’s city centre.
The course is open to native and non-native speakers of English, although candidates must have a competence and knowledge of English, both written and spoken, that enables them to take the course and teach English.
