One of the perks of the Diploma in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (DELTA) certification is its flexibility. Whether enrolled in the a DELTA course full-time, part-time, or through distance learning at home or abroad, candidates are eligible to receive the same high quality certification that comes with the University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations’ reputation. Indeed, because ESOL Examinations so closely monitors participating centers, the world truly is your oyster when it comes to selecting the DELTA course that works best for you.
Take International House New York. As one of the most famous of the 150 schools that make up the fifty country strong International House World Organization, its DELTA certification program is designed to give both full-time and part-time students the opportunity to advance their ESL careers in one of the world’s greatest cities. At the same time, International House Barcelona, which places its emphasis on an intensive, eight-week summer DELTA certification course targets those who are interested in apply their craft in a relatively quieter setting.
In nearby Madrid, for example, The British Language Centre also offers DELTA courses. Here, again, their focus is on flexibility – students can enroll in either full-time or part-time courses and, should they choose to, complete their modules in any order. It, too, rewards forward thinking teachers by offering significant discounts to those who register in advance and sizeable savings over more expensive cities.
Nor are North American and Europe the exclusive home of accredited DELTA courses. From Africa – with Cape Town, South Africa’s Cactus TEFL – to South America – with Rio de Janeiro, Brazil’s Britannia English School – and beyond – with Colombo, Sri Lanka’s British Council, with a DELTA certification the possibilities are truly endless!
