The CELTA course can be great training for teachers teaching English as a language subject in a high school state curriculum environment. While there are targets to be met within that curriculum, the CELTA can open up and refresh a teacher’s approach to how those objectives are achieved. Jasper’s students are now enjoying the fun and interactive tools and techniques that Jasper, as a CELTA graduate, is applying in his high school classroom:
I am a high school English teacher from Hong Kong. The CELTA course has given me valuable inspirations of ELT and sharpened my teaching techniques. Throughout the whole course, I have received really positive and constructive feedback from the tutors so that I have well reflected on my lesson preparation and implementation after five years of teaching.
I have gradually been adapting the methodologies learnt from the course to my teaching and I have been told by my students that they have had greater passion for English and a better environment for learning and using the language.
I am thankful that I have chosen the CELTA Centre in Barcelona, they have given me plenty of support during the course.
