“And that sweet city with her dreaming spires, She needs not June for beauty's heightening, Lovely all times she lies, lovely to-night!”
– Matthew Arnold

Teaching House Oxford is ideally situated in a magnificent heritage building in leafy North Oxford. The city centre is just 10 minutes’ walk away with all of its world-famous attractions: the Radcliffe Camera, the Bodleian Library, the Sheldonian Theatre, Christ Church College and the historic Covered Market to name but a few…

The college was established in 1979 and provides a wide range of English language and teacher training courses.  Our students come from all over the world, in a typical year, over 70 nationalities are represented at the College. Our English language courses are accredited by the British Council and we are a member of English UK.

Facilities include a well-equipped library, Wi-Fi internet access and a garden cafe/restaurant; all trainees have access to computers, printing and photocopying facilities.

This is an exciting time in your life: you’ve made the decision to teach and travel abroad. Before you pack your bags and live out your adventure, you just need to decide which TESOL training you’re going to pursue. Inevitably, your research has led you to the CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults). CELTA training helps you:

  • Gain more skills and confidence to teach
  • Get hours of real teaching practice – and practical experience
  • Receive helpful, constructive feedback from peers and tutors'

There’s nothing else like the CELTA to prepare you for life as an EFL (English as a Foreign Language) teacher. CELTA teaches you how to deal with unexpected classroom situations, foster engagement from your shy students and develop your own personal approach to teaching. If you’re ready to get started, Teaching House, the premier provider of the CELTA in Oxford, will get you to where you need to go—literally.
