Course fee

1.595 Euro
Price includes Cambridge registration fee.

In the case of cancellation six weeks or more before the course starting date, 20% of our total fee will be retained. With less than six weeks’ notice, 50% of our total fee will be retained. If cancellation occurs in the final ten days before the starting date our total fee will be retained. In the event of a course being cancelled all fees will be refunded.


Applicants for the course must complete an Application form with a pre-interview task and send it to celta@ihfrankfurt.de. We will then set up an interview, which is a University of Cambridge requirement to be accepted on the CELTA course. (You will need the free Adobe Reader to fill in this form. 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.

Free course to prepare for CELTA

If you are interested in the CELTA course and becoming a TEFL teacher, this is a great, free course developed by Cambridge English. The aim of the course is to help you to understand a bit more about TEFL teaching and the different training options there are. It is also a great way to prepare for the application interview! The course lasts six weeks and will take you two hours per week. It starts on 18 June 2018. You can find the course here.
