The CELTA course provides practical, initial training in teaching English as a foreign language.
During input sessions you will find out more about how the English language works, in terms of grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation, as well as learn about practical teaching methodology (how to set up a classroom, best use the resources at your disposal, deal with different learners, give correction and so on) These sessions aim to help you with your teaching practice.
" Excellent! I really enjoyed how personalised the input and Teaching Practice sessions were, it feels like all the tutors really care about us as students and our future teaching careers. Input sessions were really fun, and the staff utterly lovely, all round. "Catherine, August
