I participated in the CELTA course in Melbourne in 2011. It was a fantastic course to be involved in as a younger student. It is a very fast passed course and there is a lot of information and knowledge to cover in a short amount of time, however the experience of learning and teaching together as a group, was definitely worth running around like a headless chook trying madly to finish projects, while trying to write lesson plans.
As much as I taught them, they opened my eyes to a whole new side of life, which I will never ever forget, and will ever be grateful for.
The foreign students I met and taught during the CELTA course were delightful and it was so amazing to learn from them, as much as I taught them, they opened my eyes to a whole new side of life, which I will never ever forget, and will ever be grateful for.
The CELTA tutors in Melbourne were great. They were very helpful and their wealth of knowledge and experience was astounding! I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who is looking for an adventure.
I did this course in 4 weeks, and my only word of advice, as a first year uni student, who recently finished high school – treat this course as though it’s your final year at school.
I think one thing that many of the participants found overwhelming was the pace and degree of work we were expected to finish in the time we had. While the work involved is a big part of the course, don’t let it discourage you from discovering a whole new side of life.
Whether you want to start your career as a young person, and travelling the world or change your career direction, and share your experiences, you’ll love taking the CELTA because it’s so rewarding!
