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 toughest challenge is my lack of experience as a teacher. Having zero experience is nerve wracking, as you don't know what's in store for you.
So far so good. I really appreciate the efforts David has done, right from his newsletters, emails and resources. His ideas are simple, innovative and worth it.
I absolutely recommend Pass the CELTA. David's genuineness echoes in his emails for people who want to look forward to a career as an English instructor. His experiences during his CELTA are definitely worth note taking. I haven't started the course yet, but David's regular emails have been a constant source of support and inspiration to me. He's done a commendable job to offer help with things such as tips, advice and ideas. Go team passthecelta.com! Kudos to everyone who are part of this wonderful, innovative, simple yet knowledgeable website.
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 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!
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 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'm feeling quite jittery about the interview.
The emails are helping me mentally prepare myself for CELTA. Reading about people's first-hand experiences of the course is helping me understand that I'm not the only one who's feeling nervous.
I totally recommended this website and newsletter.
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.
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.
