Teaching House Belfast
Belfast is one of the safest cities in Europe, and the people are famous for being open, warm and friendly. Visitors are made welcome wherever they go. The city is upbeat, looking confidently to the future, from the revitalised city centre to the brand-new Titanic Quarter.
You’ll find plenty to discover, from art, history and green spaces to fine dining, great pubs and cosy cafés. Explore the city on foot, on your own or with a fascinating walking tour, or browse some of the finest shops anywhere in the UK. Enjoy riverside walks, picnics in the Botanic Gardens and mini-hikes to McArt’s fort on the Cavehill. Enjoy a Guinness and some traditional Irish music or live rock bands in The Limelight and Students’ Union. Start the day with an Ulster fry, snack on seafood chowder and delicious wheaten bread for lunch, and then sample some modern Irish cuisine for dinner. Northern Ireland is well-known for its fresh, local flavours. Or you can escape the city and explore further afield by visiting the world-famous Giant’s Causeway or discovering where the magnificent Mourne Mountains sweep down to the sea. Get yourself here and enjoy some of the famous Irish craic!
Northern Ireland has been designated a “must see” destination by Lonely Planet, one of the world’s top travel guides. You’ll understand why when you visit and explore our dramatic coastlines, rolling fields and lush mountains. In fact, Northern Ireland is home to some of the most beautiful and unspoiled scenery anywhere in the UK. From the breathtaking Antrim coast and glens, the world-famous Giant’s Causeway, the Mountains of Mourne, the Marble Arch Caves and Lough Neagh (the largest lake in the British Isles), to the Fermanagh Lakelands, dotted with tiny islands, wooded parks and monastic ruins, these gems of Northern Ireland are stunningly beautiful and all within easy reach of Belfast. And you’ll get to do more than just admire the view. Across Northern Ireland you’ll find facilities for outdoor pursuits such as hiking, fishing, sailing, canoeing and golf. It’s all here waiting for you, once you finish your CELTA lesson-planning, of course.
Our newly refurbished building keeps all of its Victorian charm with original features such as stained-glass windows and impressive wooden carving and stucco work. The school has 12 bright, spacious classrooms over four floors, a study room, computers for your use, kitchen and dining area, and an attractive courtyard. We also have a library of CDs, DVDs and books for you to borrow. And we’ll keep you connected with free Wi-Fi throughout the building.
All CELTA trainees have access to: free printing and photocopying; board pens, paper, card and all necessary stationery; unlimited use of computers; use of interactive whiteboards; an extensive library of teaching materials and reference books related to EFL teaching and language; and advice and support from our teaching and admin staff who have a huge range of experience in all aspects of EFL.
