Here's what CELTA grads have to say about it...

Earn the certificate TEFL/TESOL recruiters want to see in new hires.

CELTA is one of the most widely accepted TEFL/TESOL qualifications in the world. This 120 hour teaching certification program provides the skills, knowledge, and hands-on practice to pursue a rewarding career in teaching at home or abroad. Taking CELTA at Missouri State University gives you access to additional resources that are critical to your success in the program.

Backed by Cambridge English Language Assessment

CELTA courses at Missouri State are taught by individuals who have completed a rigorous training program offered by Cambridge English Language Assessment. Our tutors have many years of TEFL/TESOL teaching experience, both domestically and abroad. CELTA course quality is assured by external assessors on behalf of Cambridge, who assess each CELTA course offered.

Hands-on, practical learning experience

CELTA requires both observation of experienced teachers in the classroom and practice teaching actual English language learners with feedback from your tutor and fellow trainees. When you complete CELTA, you'll have 12 hours of real classroom experience - many other TEFL/TESOL programs do not provide teaching practice at all.

Limited class sizes for maximum tutor/trainee interaction

Each CELTA course is limited to a trainee to tutor ratio of 6:1. More interaction time with your tutor means you'll have more time for feedback and reviews of your work and more access to the experts.

Our location in the heart of downtown Springfield gives you access to coffee shops for studying, restaurants for meeting classmates and friends, and multiple theatres when you need to take a break.
