The CELTA course I took in August, 2018 is a quite memorable experience. I had a very productive month and benefited a lot from the course, the amazing tutors and some great fellow candidates.

The very first thing I like about the course is its input session. Unlike the other lecturing-based language/ teaching methodology courses, the CELTA course adopted a much more communicative and learner-centered approach. Although it was a very intense course, the tutors did not try to cram in loads of textbook theories. Instead, candidates were put in students’ shoes, experiencing what it felt like to be a learner so that they were able to see what kind of activities or interaction patterns would be effective, what would not be. It was a step-by-step process. Everyday we learned some new teaching methods and class management skills and we had the opportunity to apply these to the teaching practice later.

And teaching practice is another part I find greatly helpful. Before every lesson you would be given guidance on your lesson planning, from the order of the stages to the appropriate activities. But with the progress of the course, we became less dependent on the tutors. The most beneficial thing I got from teaching practice was the constructive comments and feedback from the tutors and fellow candidates. I could have a clear idea of what I did well and what you I didn’t, and more importantly, what I could do to make it better.

The only tip I’d like to give for improvement is maybe the course provider and organizer can arrange a more heterogeneous group of TP students and a larger variety of reference books.

It’s quite an intensive 4-week course, but definitely worth the time and energy you put together. Many thanks to Ala and Morgan, those two superb tutors, who helped us along the whole course, giving genuine feedback to each teaching practice, correcting all the errors in the writing assignments, sharing with us their teaching tips in various classes.

The course content itself is well-designed, enabling us trainees to gradually grasp those useful teaching methods, which we can bring to our own future classes. It might contradict to your previous teaching experience if you have a lot, however, it opens a new door to a different way of teaching.

Highly recommend~

I took the CELTA course in New Oriental Shanghai in June this year. It was a challenging but very practical experience. I have learnt a lot from this course and also met some interesting people. The two excellent tutors, Ala and Morgan are professionals and the students our class had were wonderful people. I would highly recommend the course to those who want to further improve their practical teaching skills.

it’s a pleasure to meet Ala and Morgan because they fabulous. The course itself is pretty challenging but rewarding at the same time and the staffs at the center are also quite helpful too. All candidates including myself have learnt a lot from the course and the trainers, and we believe the Celta certificate will make us great in teaching ! Don’t hesitate to take the Celta with this center if you are looking to improving your teaching skills !

Well, I have to say I highly recommend this course. Although I admit doing Celta is definitely a tiring process, it is still enjoyable, useful and practical. It helps me reflect and teaches me new way of effective teaching. I can apply what I’ve learnt to my current teaching to help my students. Thanks Morgan and Ala again! Miss you guys!
