Review for Barcelona, Spain
I was prepared for CELTA to be intense and that it was. Intense, challenging, nerve-racking, yet at the same time very enjoyable. The format of the course is so well organized, from start to finish. My tutors were Nigel and Sinem and they were so patient and knowledgeable. They were so fantastic at guiding us through the lessons. They always focused on the positives, while still correcting us on our mistakes and challenges. I feel this is so crucial and because of how they taught me, I never lost my confidence. Particularly in an online environment, I was just so nervous and both Nigel and Sinem continually put me at ease. I certainly progressed with the course and my Teaching Practice 8 was at a completely different level than my Teaching Practice 1. Also, my teaching skills have just improved to another level and my nerves have changed to excitement. I was terrified at Teaching Practice 1 and excited by Teaching Practice 8.
I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to enter the teaching world. I have also met some new lifelong friends which is an unexpected bonus.
Thank you so much Sinem, Rubens, and Nigel for this incredible training experience. You are all incredible role models and practice what you preach.
