After researching on Internet, I knew CELTA is one of the most widely recognised certificates for teaching English. I didn’t have any teaching experience before, so I started from scratch. It’s been a lot of hard work, and haven’t had any free time. It was a good job it was a 5 week course. If it had been 4 weeks, I’d have gone mental. Now I’ve done the course, I know I want to carry on and find a teaching job.
I learned a lot, a ton of teaching techniques, how to act in front of students, have a professional attitude, how to evaluate yourself constructively… I absolutely feel more confident now after the course. Students have been really great, both sets were really good and allowed us to progress, they participated very well.
I looked for a CELTA course in Europe, and this 5-week one is the the best option, I can’t imagine it in 4 weeks, that would be too intensive. I can say I’ve enjoyed the course. It’s stressful sometimes, but that’s part of the learning experience. All the trainers were very supportive and the group too, there’s been a very nice atmosphere.
