Hello! My name is David. I graduated my Cambridge CELTA course with a Pass A grade and wanted to pass on some of the best experiences and TEFL tips from my time studying the syllabus.
This article reveals the cost of studying the CELTA course in 2019 at more than 70 centres around the world.
70 centres! Yes it was a ton of work, but I’m very proud that this is the very best guide on CELTA costs anywhere.
Check out the latest CELTA prices from 10 centres in each of the 7 continents, and compare the lowest, highest, and average costs.
I've just published a brand new feature guide about the online CELTA (also know as the blended learning option).
If you're wondering whether the online study option is right for you, this guide will be very helpful. It's full of answers to the many questions shared by the newsletter subscribers and Facebook followers... people just like you. Go check it out!
My biggest challenge about the CELTA course is the workload that I will have to deal with during a very short period of time.
David's newsletters gave me an insight into how the CELTA course will be. It puts me into the right mindset to face my fear and be more confident. Thank you David most sincerely for the helpful tips.
If you are seeking to quench the fire of the questions you have in mind about the CELTA course and to get right tips, tools and support to pass it with flying colors. I highly recommend David's website and newsletter for you, they are really useful. Cheers
Hi. I'm just starting revising and working on it. I had the interview 5 days ago. I ordered books online and started a day after the interview. The course is next year but I want to be prepared and ready. I quite often use your websites as the tips are very helpful and specifics, precise. It's really good, thank you very much
This website guided for the interview, it does help exactly on each area which is absolutely a bonus. I shall use it more as I have lots to revise and read before my course starts. Thank you!
I definitely recommend Pass The CELTA, very helpful and all information needed. Very easy to navigate and clear. Thanks a lot
I would really like to take the CELTA course abroad learning in a real class with real professional teachers.
Pass the CELTA is full of very valuable tips and resources from the experts. Absolutely, I would recommend the resources here to future CELTA trainees!
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.
Just a quick update since we last spoke... I asked some questions about the CELTA pre-interview task and you kindly guided me through some of the points to consider before the interview. Today is the day I complete my CELTA and now I just wait for my certificate to come through.
It’s been a great experience and I’m glad I went ahead with it.
Many thanks for your time and advice prior to taking the CELTA.
My biggest fear regarding CELTA was that I am not competent enough to finish it since I am a non-native speaker of English. Once you find out your CELTA tutors do not necessarily have to be English, everything gets easier. Another thing was the course intensity. Complete dedication to something for one month. It does not sound too difficult or frightening when you say it, but it really requires 24/7 work and dedication. When you work - you work for CELTA, when you sleep - you are getting rest for CELTA again. Don't get me wrong, I would do it all over again now, but that period when I was waiting for the course to start was making me nervous whether I will be able to make it.
I downloaded every possible thing which can be downloaded from this site, read/listened/watched in detail, newsletter was also enormously useful. I even exchanged a couple of private letters with David and he gave me some tips on the CELTA assignments and he was very polite and helpful. I am so grateful I was able to come up across this site and its owner before I started CELTA.
I definitely recommend David's website and newsletter for new CELTA trainees! First of all, you will get valuable advice from a person who has already passed the CELTA and decided to dedicate his life to help others who plan on doing the course. You receive newsletters which are very detailed, but coherent, containing information that would help you out a lot if you knew it before your course starts. It also helps you to create an image of what is everything regarding teaching practice and written assignments going to be like. The website and newsletters contain beneficial input from the real CELTA tutors and trainees as well.
In my opinion, this is the number one site for all of the future CELTA trainees out there.
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!
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.
