First of all, thanks for the opportunity to share my experience of taking the CELTA course in Melbourne.
Doing the CELTA course was among one of the best decisions I have ever made. I had my doubts whilst still considering it, but know I can say “I have done it”. I really feel proud when people ask me about myself and I can reply “I’ve done the CELTA”!! This qualification also has a highly treasured space in my resume.
Doing CELTA wasn’t easy for me as I myself speak English as a second language. I had no idea there was so much to the English language as a whole. The CELTA was an eye-opener as I finally got to know the reasons behind why I was speaking and writing English in its particular way.
The CELTA course in Melbourne was demanding and I realised why it was called intensive when I started it. Since then I have learnt so much. My CELTA tutors were amazing; they were so supportive, encouraging and incredible in the way they presented the whole course. They were approachable at any time of the day and they helped me to find out and do things for myself which gave me a sense of satisfaction and achievement at the end of the day. I will always be grateful to them.
Teaching real foreign students was the highlight of this course. We were able to put into practise everything we learnt and I was able to realise how effective I was while teaching. I was able to pick out my strengths and weaknesses through feedback from tutors and fellow colleagues.
I believe doing the CELTA has brought me to a higher pedestal in my life. I have learnt to teach English which is definitely my greatest achievement. I have also learnt to believe in myself which is a lesson for life. So, yeah, I come out of this course winning both ways. I would definitely and very honestly say that I do not hesitate to recommend this course to anyone who wants to become a somebody!!!
