What language level do I need to join the course?
To begin studying for this course, you must be at least a strong C1 level
What if I haven't passed CELTA can I join the course?
Yes, if you are willing to put the extra work.
What time are the live sessions?
We negotiate the most suitable time for all group participants once the group is full, classes are once per week for 90m minutes.
Can I pay for the course in installments?
Yes, you can pay in 2 installments
Will you walk us through the books page by page?
No. The Delta is a Master's level Diploma in the UK education system. Therefore, you are expected to have a certain degree of autonomy and responsibility to study on your own. The course is designed with the flipped classroom model so we provide suggested reading material and expect you to do the work before coming to the sessions. This does not mean that you are left without support — we are always available in the group chat to answer questions.
How many hours per week do I need to study?
We recommend allocating at least 10 hours per week for studies outside the classroom.
This is a learner-driven course so you are expected to meet up with your classmates outside of the live sessions to complete additional tasks!
