CELTA in Athens @ CELT Athens of course :-)

Some people ask me if we made up the name of the school specifically to echo the name of the Cambridge CELTA.

The answer is “No, we did not!”

CELT was first established in 1989 by Marisa Constantinides & fellow teacher and teacher trainer Danae Kozanoglou. In 1993, this partnership was dissolved and Marisa Constantinides founded CELT Athens in September of the same year.

At that time, the Cambridge CELTA Certificate was not even a glimmer in Cambridge’s eyes! In fact, the predecessor of the CELTA was run by the RSA, i.e., the Royal Society of Arts and was called CTEFL.

So, it was a coincidence, and a very happy one, I should add!!!
