Taking the CELTA course with the teacher training centre in Vietnam was challenging, engaging and gave me great insight into my abilities as a teacher. The tutors were supportive, however realistic about their feedback. I was pushed to the limits, always busy but never felt unprepared for what we were being asked to do.
I taught a 45 minuet graded lesson to Vietnamese learner on day 2 of the course. I was terrified but thankful for this head-first approach to teacher training. All nerves were gone by day three and I could focus on improving my areas of weakness, on top of continual learning for the coming weeks of the course.
Thank you to everyone involved. I can’t wait to start my new TEFL career.
