In Response To: CELTA courses ILC Paris, HELP! (Joy)

Hi there, I know it's a bit late but I'm sure there'll be others who are interested in studying at ILC Paris so I thought I'd reply.
I completed the CELTA at ILC in 2013 and would advise against studying there. I did fine on the course and used my CELTA to find work afterwards, so it's certainly a good qualification. However, I found the experience at ILC extremely underwhelming. I had done my research and knew it was going to be hard work, which it was, but that isn't the source of my dissatisfaction. I was very unimpressed with one of the teachers. She did not assist students' learning in a way that one may expect considering the price of the course. This may seem a bit much but in that there are only two teachers this equates to half of the teaching staff. There were massive inconsistencies in the way that students were treated, supported and assessed. Again, I would point out that I did well in the course, however, it was not nice to see students being so poorly taught.
My overall advice would be to do the CELTA but to avoid ILC and take your custom elsewhere.
