Applicants for the course must complete an application form with a pre-interview task and send it to celta@ihfrankfurt.de. You can download the application form as Word.docx file here and as .PDF here.  We will then set up an interview, which is a University of Cambridge requirement to be accepted on the CELTA course. (To use the .PDF file, you will need the free Adobe Reader. If you don’t have this programme on your computer, you can download it for free here.) Upon submitting, please add celta@ihfrankfurt.de to your allowed emailing list to prevent email responses from being filtered to your Junk Mail folder.

Together with you we will arrange a time for a telephone interview. Although, nowadays a Skype interview might be more convenient. And if you live near our centre, you are of course invited to come by in person so you can have a look around.
