Want to learn to ride a bike? Wikihow suggests these 10 steps
After reading this, can someone actually ride a bike? The answer is no.  We know that in order to truly learn a skill, we need to practise it. 
 

Teaching is an art and a skill. The CELTA course provides good exposure to many ways of teaching, but its foremost focus is on ensuring trainees get plenty of hands-on practice. Six hours of practice means trainees get plenty of opportunities to 'have a go' in a safe, supported and constructive training environment.  

After the CELTA, we encourage trainees to keep up principled teaching and to continue their professional development.

About the CELTA course

The CELTA course gives you the essential skills and knowledge you need to teach English to adults and older teenagers.

You get hands-on teaching practice and observation of experienced teachers, applying your learning in the classroom with English language learners.

CELTA courses are based on specifications produced by Cambridge English Language Assessment. 

 
 

Course topics

You will cover five main topics as part of your CELTA course:

Learners and teachers, and the teaching and learning context

This topic includes:

  • understanding the cultural and linguistic backgrounds of learners, and how this might affect their learning of English
  • understanding different learning styles and preferences.

Language analysis and awareness

This topic includes:

  • understanding key terminology used in English language teaching, applying this terminology in planning and teaching
  • demonstrating a working knowledge of English grammar, lexis and phonology.

Language skills: reading, listening, speaking and writing

This topic includes:

  • understanding basic concepts and terminology used for describing reading, listening, speaking and writing skills, applying this to teaching
  • understanding how approaches to texts may vary depending on the purpose, making practical use of this in teaching.

Planning and resources for different teaching contexts

This topic includes:

  • understanding the purpose and principles of planning for effective teaching
  • selecting and planning the kinds of lessons that are most appropriate for particular learners
  • evaluating lesson preparation and reflecting on this for planning future lessons.

Developing teaching skills and professionalism

This topic includes:

  • effectively organising the classroom, both in terms of layout and pair/group activities
  • making appropriate use of a range of materials and resources
  • involving learners of different ability levels, enabling them to feel a sense of progress.
 

How you will be assessed

You will be assessed throughout the course and there is no final examination.

The two types of assessment are:

>> Teaching practice
You will teach for a total of 6 hours, working with adult classes at a minimum of two CEFR levels of ability. Assessment is based on your overall performance from the first to the last day of the course.

>> Written assignments
You will complete four written assignments (each 750–1,000 words). These focus on:

  • analysing and responding to adult learner needs
  • analysing language for teaching purposes
  • teaching language skills
  • reflecting on classroom teaching.
