There are two main components to the CELTA course: input and teaching practice.
During the hands-on input sessions, you'll learn about teaching methodology and brush up on your language awareness, among other things. Teaching practice gives you a chance to create lesson plans and try out teaching approaches with real students. You'll get a significant amount of support from your tutors who are here to help you on your path to becoming a certified English Language Teacher.
