The other students also have made the course more enjoyable. I will be recommending CELTA at Manchester Academy of English to the rest of my family! Thank you.”

Zoe, Manchester

"I can safely say the Delta is the most challenging thing I have ever done, but it has also been the most rewarding. Many opportunities in a diverse range of areas have now opened up for me including designing materials, syllabus design, opportunities for teacher training but most importantly it has provided me with a much wider degree of confidence, knowledge and expertise to a multitude of creative and innovative teaching within the classroom and that has been invaluable."
