CELTA Course Introduction


This is an exciting time in your life: you’ve made the decision to teach and travel abroad. Before you pack your bags and live out your adventure, you just need to decide which TESOL training you’re going to pursue. Inevitably, your research has led you to the CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults). CELTA training helps you:

• Gain more skills and confidence to teach

• Get hours of real teaching practice – and practical experience

• Receive helpful, constructive feedback from peers and tutors

• Develop a teaching skills foundation so you don’t feel like a total fraud as you step foot into your first real class

There’s nothing else like the CELTA, to prepare you for life as an EFL (English as a Foreign Language) teacher. CELTA teaches you how to deal with unexpected classroom situations, foster engagement from your shy students and develop your own personal approach to teaching. If you’re ready to get started, Teaching House, the premier provider of the CELTA across the U.S. and the world, will get you to where you need to go—literally.
