CELTA Washington D.C. - TESOL Course Introduction

Teaching English abroad is an exciting profession that will take you around the world. However, it’s a challenge you may not yet feel equipped to take on. First, you need to get a few things in order to ensure you’ll have an enjoyable, wonderful teaching and living abroad experience.

This includes making sure you feel equipped with the necessary skills to handle your students and manage a classroom. You don’t want to do a “decent” job at teaching. You truly want to be a great teacher so you can provide your future students with the English language skills they’re so eager to acquire.

CELTA experience helps you with:

  • Delivery of the teaching material
