Other Trainees Just Like You!

I want to express my massive thanks to you. The information you share with us is really valuable and I'm looking forward to your post about writing assignments. And I wonder which books would help me to pass CELTA successfully. In July I'm going to get CELTA training and I want to head there well prepared. I'm afraid that it is going to be a challenging and intense part of my summer. My biggest fear is that I am not sure I will be able to cope with negative feedback. Thank you beforehand ?

You really helped me.

My biggest challenge is standing up in front of enthusiastic adult students for the first time and teaching!

The website has helped me feel a bit more confident. The resources are good and to the point. They give you a general idea of what the course will expect from you. Brilliant tips as well!

I would recommend your website. It gives a lot of insight about teaching. Eliciting, course skills etc. The interviews are also very helpful and reassuring. I must admit I'm petrified but also very curious and impatient to start! Thanks!

Although, I have been a teacher for 4 years, I'm sure that taking the CELTA is no mean feat. My biggest challenge is learning the teaching methodologies and putting them to good use.

The resources at PassTheCelta.com have been hugely enriching and have allayed my fears to a considerable degree. I'll be sure to recommend it to others.

My biggest fear about the CELTA course is that the time seems short and there is a lot to cover. I fear I may be unable to complete the entire course in just a month!

Here's some of the things I've found valuable from this website: First, creating rapport with the students by mentioning their names, that's something I would have overlooked but as I prepare I have that in mind. Secondly, carrying a clipboard is a great tip! with all my docs put together on the clipboard I am able to move and monitor the class and at the same time referring to my notes.

Use this website if you really want to be fully prepared as you enter CELTA. It's explained in very clear language and the tips are things we can easily overlook. Thanks David for being so kind to prepare us for the CELTA!

I have some challenges with the technical terms of grammar though I am good at the applied aspect of it. I have not had formal teaching experience before. These are the challenges for me.

Pass the CELTA consoled me that the course is intensive but is still very achieveable.

Yes, I would recommend the website to other viewers. It reassures people needing motivation about the course.

My biggest fear is fear of lacking behind in a group of native speaker, I am scared of completing written assignments timely. Althought I am highly motivated, still somewhere in the corner of my heart something frightens me. By David's newsletters I am trying to gain inspiration and take up this course very soon and address my foremost fear of the pre-interview test paper and its language awareness part.

This website gives me courage not to give up and boosts my confidence level to cope up all 4 intensive weeks successfully. It addresses each and every part of course and how to overcome my fear and to prepare myself for the course in advance.

It's a energy booster in short, to motivate you to go for the course enthusiastically.

My biggest concern was that I was just going to be bombarded with information! And that I was supposed to know everything quickly and the trainers would be testing me on everything.

Thanks to the information and interviews on passthecelta.com, I found out that the trainers are there to help and encourage us, and all the trainees are in it together! I was definitely reassured!

The information on passthecelta.com is a great way to get an idea of what to expect, what to look out for, and how to prepare. It's nice to have the information from a former trainee, as well as interviews with real, seasoned trainers! Thanks, David!
