Celta course in Barcelona, April-May


On the four-week intensive course starting April 24, the tutors for one group will be (left to right) David, Gerard and Roger.

Your CELTA course always lasts 20 days (a Cambridge specification): with May 1 being a national holiday in Spain, that's why this course starts on a Friday.



On the the four-month extensive course which started on March 2, we have Liz, Nigel and Sophie.

The part-time course, which we run twice a year, is two mornings a week, as opposed to five days a week on the intensive course.

Other CELTA courses coming up shortly

In Barcelona
May 28—June 26 (intensive, 4 weeks)
November 2—February 22, 2016 (part-time)
September 14—December 18 (online)

Amazing artwork by learners in Cape Town

A cool video from our friends at IH Cape Town...
International House Cape Town [ website ] is one of the schools -- along with IH Barcelona -- that belong to The IHLS Group.

You can also take a CELTA course in Cape Town, which is the most amazing place, by all accounts!

Fun things you can do with YouTube in a language class

There's just so much brilliant stuff on YouTube that it's tempting to suggest that you could literally do away with coursebooks entirely!

Over on our technology blog, we've got some great ideas on how to get the most language out of YouTube clips.

That's what you should be trying to do in the lessons you teach: exploit the minimum possible material for the maximum amount of language practice and learning.

Another site to bookmark: the brilliant film-english.com, which has a wonderful selection of great clips from YouTube and elsewhere, with a step-by-step lesson plan to accompany each.
