The CELTA program at the Guadalajara centre was a great experience. The course was rigorous and intense, but my learning gains were incredible. Before taking the CELTA course, I had six years of experience teaching ESL/EFL, but I came into the course aware of some of my weaknesses as an educator. The CELTA course met my exact weaknesses with pedagogical guidance and solutions and exceeded my expectations for my overall career development. Week by week during the CELTA course, the tutors on the course helped me identify and practice methods for creating student-centered lesson plans that were interesting and that genuinely allowed students to achieve specific learning goals. There were a few issues with inconsistency within the CELTA materials and tutoring approaches, but most of these issues were resolved during the course. I am proud of my achievement in completing the CELTA course, and I think Guadalajara is a wonderful place to take this course.
