CELTA was a life-changing experience for me. I applied because of three reasons: I love English, I am good at explaining things, and I am fond of travelling. On top of these, it is an excellent opportunity to work anywhere in the world.
During the course, I learnt a lot of things that helped me to develop as a teacher, as a linguist, and as a personality. Furthermore, I had an opportunity to apply those things to practice, use different techniques that I learnt and see how they worked.
Input sessions were followed by teaching practice. As a consequence, as I proceeded though the course, I felt how better I was getting at those little things. All together, they make up a good language lesson.
I avail myself of this opportunity to express my appreciation to my tutors – Kateryna Protsenko and Andrii Pigariev. I admire them for their profound knowledge and readiness to help with anything, at any time. Not only are they advanced specialists in their field, but they are always eager to share their experience. Their feedback always motivated me to do my best. Their praise always meant the world for me.
The course was intensive, I put a lot of effort in it. However, the game was worth the candle. CELTA opened new frontiers for me – and I would recommend it to anyone who is in love with teaching, languages, and communication.
