CELTA Basics

No matter what program you choose, your CELTA experience will prepare you for high quality teaching in TEFL/TESOL fields.

In addition to class time, students spend many out of class hours reading, preparing lesson plans, and working on assignments. It is recommended that any outside distractions should be avoided for the duration of your CELTA course.
