  • The CELTA Trainers in Sydney: truly inspiring! Always ready with new ways of approaching something, always a million ideas up their sleeves!
    The CELTA Trainers in Sydney: truly inspiring! Always ready with new ways of approaching something, always a million ideas up their sleeves!

    It was a very interesting experience to be back in the place of a learner. As a teacher, you can become a bit distanced and your methods can become stale. This course made me re-examine my style and methods and rid myself of some lazy habits. Finishing the CELTA course raised my self-esteem and my confidence and I was lucky enough to get a job very soon after finishing the course.

    I loved the way the CELTA tutors made us do the tasks, rather than just tell us about them.

    I have remembered so many lesson ideas due to that. The mix of people was fascinating – all very different, yet we bonded well and supported each other greatly. I liked doing teaching practice with real foreign students and although it was nerve wracking, we were among friendly, supportive tutors and classmates.

    The CELTA Tutors here in Sydney were truly inspiring! Always ready to suggest new ways of approaching something, always a million ideas up their sleeves! They were supportive and encouraging.

    The classes were packed with useful tips, lesson ideas, and career advice.

    It’s an intense course and we worked really hard but still had a lot of fun.

    The resources at the Training Center in Sydney were excellent, the teaching practice is with real learners and we got to observe real English lessons on site.

    I had been a teacher for many years before CELTA and wasn’t sure if I needed to do it...

    I had been a teacher for many years before CELTA and wasn’t sure if I needed to do it for any other reason than the paper qualification, but it turned out to be one of the best things I’ve ever done. I learned so much and I feel I have really raised my game.
