CELTA Ho Chi Minh City
Teaching House Ho Chi Minh City:
51 Nguyen Cu Trinh, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
Ho Chi Minh City, often referred to as Saigon, is Vietnam's largest city and is a vibrant and bustling place teeming with opportunities. It is full of life and excitement, from colourful street markets to world-class restaurants; from renovated colonial buildings to ancient pagodas hidden amongst the tangled alleyways. While every corner provides opportunities for new experiences, the comforts of home can be easily found.
Our CELTA courses take place in a thriving language school in HCMC right in the centre of the city. This gives our trainees easy access to a wide array of restaurants, shops, transportation and facilities. We have dedicated classrooms, preparation rooms and computers for all of our trainees. The school itself is right in the bustling middle of HCMC surrounded by restaurants, cafes and hotels.
Our facilities include but are not limited to; state-of-the-art classrooms equipped with modern computers and projection technology, a physical and digital library with a wide range of literature and resources to suit trainees’ needs whilst on the course, a preparation room complete with photocopiers, stationery and resources designed solely for candidates taking the CELTA course, a computer suite including printing facilities, a dedicated CELTA support staff and access to free Wi-Fi throughout the building.
Sample Course Schedule
The course is spread over more than 120 contact hours and usually runs from Monday to Friday from 8.45am - 5.30pm.
The course is divided into theoretical and practical elements. By the end of the 4 week period, each candidate will have; completed 6 hours of supported & assessed teaching practice, attended a range of input sessions covering various topics, completed observations of both peers and experienced teachers and completed four written assignments.
Outside of the contact hours, you can expect an additional workload of a minimum of 3-4 hours each night and that at least 1 of your weekend days will be spent writing assignments and lesson plans. Because of this intensity, the course is a full-time commitment for each candidate, so working whilst doing the course is not recommended.
*Following the January 7th, 2019 intensive course, CELTA dates in Ho Chi Minh are pending confirmation. Please contact us for more information about taking the CELTA in Vietnam and 2021 dates.
