CELTA

 

CELTA is an internationally recognized teaching qualification in the field of teaching English as a foreign or second language. The course is aimed at potential teachers with little or no experience inside a classroom. CELTA courses can be studied in a number of locations around the world and are individually designed and organized by different language institutes. Although there may be some variety between individual courses, the fundamental specifics of the course are dictated by Cambridge ESOL, part of the University of Cambridge.

THIS WAS A GOOD UNIT, WHICH NOT ONLY REFRESHED MY MEMORY OF THE RULES OF GRAMMAR BUT ALSO TAUGHT ME TERMINOLOGY THAT I WAS UNFAMILIAR WITH. THROUGH THE MANY EXAMPLES GIVEN , I WILL BE ABLE TO ENRICH MY STUDENTS EXPERIENCE IN MY CLASSROOM. THE UNIT ONCE AGIN REMINDED ME HOW DIFFICULT IT MUST SOMETIMES BE FOR STUDENTS TO OBSORB ALL THE GRAMMAR CONTENT THERE IS TO LEARN.It was good to know that a class' seating arrangement can make a big difference. Now I understand why my professors at university kept on changing it. It was also helpful to read about how to give clear and simple instructions and how to be understood better. It was also interesting to know when to stand up, stay seated, and when not to have eye contact with learners.
