When you are done with your lessons for the day, you have over 70 miles of beaches where you can soak up the sun and play in the surf. San Diego is home to many fun activities including Sea World, the world-famous San Diego Zoo, and Birch Aquarium.

Those who appreciate history and the arts can plan a visit to the Old Globe Theatre, the Maritime Museum, or the USS Midway.

San Diego Course Fees

All of our CELTA courses (full-time, part-time, and semi-intensive) cost a total of $2,795. This is the combined $200 registration fee that will secure your spot right away after you've been accepted onto the course, and the remaining course fee of $2,595, which will be due 4 weeks before your course begins. There are no additional fees or taxes added.

Payment is as follows:

Accepted candidates are required to pay a $200 registration fee in order to secure their spot on the next available course. This is paid after the CELTA candidate has completed the application process, has been interviewed, and has been accepted on to the course. Once payment of the enrollment fee has been made, Teaching House confirms a place on the course.

The course fee is $2,595 and is due four weeks before the course starts. Applicants are reminded by email during the week preceding this.

San Diego has specific conditions relating to when a course will run: a final decision is made four weeks prior to the start of a course, if 8 candidates have enrolled by paying the registration fee the course will run, if fewer than 8 then the fee is returned, or deferred to a future course date.

Because places are limited on the Teaching House CELTA (the maximum ratio of trainees to teacher trainers is 6:1), it is advisable to apply for a place as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

CELTA Trainees are advised to buy a methodology book and grammar book (see Recommended Books on the CELTA Course page). Apart from this, there are no other costs during the Teaching House Cambridge CELTA course.
