To anyone interested doing their CELTA in Ecuador through Southern Cross, I highly recommend this option. Although Ecuador seemed a neat location to take the course, I had my doubts whether it would be a good course to take, what the town would be like, living arrangements, etc. In the end, every aspect of my experience here was excellent. The course itself is informative, challenging, practical, and very useful
I definitely walked away feeling confident in teaching English. The instructors (tutors) were great and exceeded my expectations. They were very experienced and knowledgeable ...
The Southern Cross Celta course hugely surpassed my expectations.
The campus was perfect, the food and drinks provided were excellent and in a great location. The pool in the centre of the campus is ideal for relaxing in when you get some spare time in the middle of the week or for weekends. The site is located about 10 mins walk from the local town which is good for food and drink on the evenings if you want to get out and about, and also has a really good beach for relaxing.
The course itself was one of the best things I´ve ever done, it can get slightly intense but is manageab...

The new Casa Cacique location at Montanita for the Southern Cross CELTA course gave a great impression on arrival! It’s a superb, bespoke facility complete with comfortable well equipped Cabanas, lovely swimming pool and hammocks for all. After five weeks of travel in Ecuador encountering very variable facilities the high pressure, hot water shower in my Cabana were much appreciated! Considerable thought has gone into the location and set up of the site and it functioned very well as a facility suited for the rigours of a CELTA course. The programme is fully catered and it was so ...

Having just finished the CELTA course in Montañita at Casa Cacique, I feel a bit bereft. I still want to be doing it. It was such a positive experience.
The quality of the teaching from the trainers was of the highest quality. I have been in teaching in one form or another for over 20 years and I felt I had loads to learn from these guys.
The living conditions on campus were terrific. Spacious cabins, great food and friendly staff. I was ready for it to be a bit rough, it was the opposite.
I think a big advantage of doing a CELTA while living on campus is that you can completely...
