Because of CELTA, I was able to obtain a position with EPIK in Busan, South Korea. I was able to have control over where I was placed specifically because of this certification, unlike other applicants. Job placement in this city is extremely competitive, and without the CELTA I would not have had this opportunity, which has directly affected my experience.
As a beginning teacher, CELTA has given me many useful skills such as lesson planning, experience teaching in the classroom, access to resources, classroom management, and confidence. I took a large binder of useful information with me that I refer to all the time.
I am currently teaching elementary school, but CELTA has given me the opportunity to teach any grade level, including adults, which I plan to do in the future. I was taught by both Curt and John during the month of CELTA. These highly experience trainers were able to pass on a wealth of information as well as excellent feedback before and after our lessons. I would definitely recommend learning from the Austin, TX CELTA center.
As a former member of Americorps, I did not have to pay a penny of my own money towards CELTA. My award money covered my tuition, public transportation, and books. I was currently living in near my school, but it also would have covered my housing if I had needed it. I had money left over from my award to put towards student loans as well.
The cost and effort of the CELTA was the best choice I made when I chose to teach English abroad. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
