    What our customers have to say about us

    I found the CELTA course at TLC Baden to be very professional and would recommend anyone to attend courses there.

    It was an intensive but nevertheless extremely rewarding experience. Support from my tutors left nothing to be desired, as far as the promptness with which it was provided to me and its quality are concerned. Moreover, without their help, I don't think I would have been able to benefit as much as I did from the course.

    I am glad I did the course. I find that it is difficult to achieve a B even with good results.
