Review, Part 3: CELTA Program at British Council, Kraków, Poland

Obviously, I cannot speak as to comparisons with other programs, except for rumors and personal reports I have read on the Internet, or heard from my tutors and colleagues in the program with me. As for comparisons with other schools, I will say only one thing. The cost of the CELTA outside the borders of the native-English-speaking nations is considerably lower than it is within native-English nations.

I have traveled all over the USA, but only twice outside of North America. My trip to Kraków was my second trip outside of North America, and I would highly recommend it as a place to stay for anyone interested in international travel. It was also an ideal city in which to be a student. Read more »
