Gain a CELTA teaching qualification at Live Language in Glasgow
The Cambridge CELTA qualification is the industry standard for those teaching English as a foreign language to adults. It is internationally recognised and could be your passport to a career abroad. The CELTA course is ideal for those who love travel, learning about new cultures and who want to embrace the challenge of teaching. The CELTA at Live Language is a course and can open doors, which short, weekend TEFL courses can’t. All our teachers have the CELTA qualification as a minimum, and we’ve worked in countries such as Japan, Korea, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Italy, Vietnam, China and France to name a few!
We have 3 course options – a 4-week intensive, and 10-week or 15-week blended online options.

Right from the start I felt welcomed and supported by everyone at Live Language. The quality of the teaching and feedback from all the tutors involved was of the highest quality and the opportunity to observe these ELT professionals in action was so valuable. I was amazed at how much I learned in such a short period of time. The learners in our classes were great fun to work with and to chat with over a coffee in the common room. I enjoyed my time at Live Language and getting the feel for the day to day routine of a language school. I would highly recommend this course.
I feel I have come alive taking the CELTA course at Live Language. It has helped me discover who I am and what I want and need to have in my life. Meeting my training colleagues has been a joy. I will remember these inspiring friends and reflect on this experience for the rest of my life.
Having just completed Celta with Live Language I cannot recommend the school enough. The course was challenging, tiring and stimulating all at the same time. As for the tutors we had , I cannot praise them enough. Professional but always encouraging. The mentoring and feedback was honest and to the point , but with a clear emphasis on where we needed to put our focus. It was very individual, helping us to build on our strengths as well as developing our weaker areas. I had looked at several providers of this course but I am so happy to have chosen this school, which just felt right from the word go. Tutors of other classes, who were not involved with my course, were very friendly and so encouraging as they too were Celta/ Delta qualified and understood the demands . The school is vibrant but small enough to really feel involved immediately. For anyone considering Celta I would recommend Live Language as the place to apply for this course.
