As a CELTA trainee, you learn a lot from direct experiences in the classroom: basically, you realize that it’s not just about the students, but also about you as a teacher, because you need to understand the language, find new ways of doing things and put things into practice in order to become a professional trainer for English learners.
I can definitely say that, in this sense, the CELTA course gave me such great opportunities to work on my ELT skills and interesting food for thought as well.
It was an extraordinary experience in many ways, but I am very happy I attended it online and wouldn’t hesitate to suggest other people do it!

The teacher training centre in Rome was founded more than thirty years ago mainly to cater to the needs of the local schools. It expanded, however, to become the largest in Italy, in response to the growing demand for training courses in both state schools and private institutions. In 1997 the centre was one of the first in the world authorised by the University of Cambridge ESOL (now Cambridge English Language Assessment) to pilot their new Extension Course for Teachers of Young Learners. Over the years they have prepared more than three thousand candidates from all over the world for careers both in Italy and abroad.
The Rome training centre is located in the centre of the city, close to the Colosseum, San Giovanni in Laterano and the main railway station (Stazione Termini). Course participants have access to the training centre's fully equipped Self Study Centre and its extensive library of materials for lesson planning and reference. CELTA students are also provided with their own room that includes photocopying and IT facilities, and wi-fi is available in the whole premises.
