Welcome to International House Budapest Teacher Training

Wherever you live in the world, you can complete the Cambridge CELTA with us, entirely from your home, and receive top-notch training for teaching both online and in a ’live’ classroom. Note that the online format is fully approved by Cambridge English, and the certificate you receive is exactly the same as one receives upon successful completion of the face-to-face course. For more information, go to our Cambridge CELTA page.
The situation of the Covid-19 pandemic meant that, alongside face-to-face courses, the 100% online CELTA has become the norm, and it is the course that we are currently running at International House Budapest. Although it requires participants to have stable internet bandwidth and the necessary equipment to access our sessions via the Zoom platform, the online nature of the course presents unique opportunities to meet other trainees from literally all over the world. The course also includes an induction to online tools, and you will have a chance to observe an experienced trainer deliver sessions before you start teaching.
If you have a fair amount of teaching experience and are considering a more advanced qualification like the Cambridge DELTA or one of our specialised teacher training courses, you’ll find more information within these pages.
Whatever your reasons or background, you’ve come to the right place. Along with the importance we place on delivering quality, affordable training– something we’ve been doing for over 30 years– we also focus our efforts on helping individuals make the choice that suits them, in terms of which course, when and even where to do it. And if you do a CELTA or DELTA course with us, you can count on a lifetime of support in pursuing your career in TEFL.
Choosing a TEFL course can be a daunting process, with all the choices of courses and locations. It’s an important decision, one that will mean a considerable investment of time and energy; we want you to make a decision you’ll be happy with, regardless. Browse through our website and if at any point you’d like to chat with us about our courses and whether one suits you, don’t hesitate to contact us. By the way, you can get some idea of who we are by visiting the Meet the Trainers page, and also by looking at some of the informative videos in our FAQ section.
