The CELTA was a lot of work, but I had so much fun along the way and never felt like I was without support.
The trainers and staff were so helpful, knowledgeable, and above all friendly.
I had such a good experience with the CELTA course at the Teacher Training Center in San Diego that I came back to teach at the school on two different occasions. Along with learning teaching techniques, the CELTA course gives you experience in using supplementary materials, creating original materials, adapting materials, and giving peer feedback. Every bit of information I retained from the course was so useful and continues to be so three and a half years later. Thanks to the excellence of the CELTA course, I felt very confident going into the classroom afterwards.
Many schools around the world follow the communicative approach that is taught in the CELTA. Having a CELTA has opened many doors for me in the TEFL world including teaching jobs in Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and even intensive ESL programs in the U.S. I look forward to seeing where the CELTA will take me next.
