The end of the course
It is very informative course session. The presenter explains each part of the lesson very clearly and provides appropriate examples to comprehend the essence of the lesson components profoundly. Thank you very much!!
it's really amazing course and good for me as i am planing to get the CELTA Certificate ,the teaching practices is explained in full details and the way the teacher can perform the lesson is clearly and combine the skills in the lesson framework, moreover,i can't really describing that how much is valuable in each lesson,the tutor is explaining the lesson in a systematic way.
Thank you for the great effort. You really put your heart in this course and encouraged my to register for a CELTA course
I am listening to this lecture and felt happy because it just wipes away the fear of being a future CELTA student
Very informative and gives a clear understanding what is expected during a CELTA training.. Highly recommended to those who wish to take up CELTA.
I have just finished the course and I found it simply amazing. I highly recommend it to anyone who is thinking about taking CELTA. The content of this course is very relevant. The teacher is very straight to the point, hence the short lessons, but he makes sure to cover all important aspects and details about what we will face during CELTA. He also provides a lot of examples. Overall I think he was very organized when planning this course. The teacher is didactic and very easy to understand (if you are a non-native English speaker), and he provides transcript of the lessons in case you have any doubts during the explanations. He also answers to our questions in a short amount of time and he makes himself available to correct the extra exercises from the course that we submit. Before finishing this course I was very anxious, not knowing what to expect from CELTA, afraid of not being able to keep up with things. I now feel very confided because I know what will happen and what to do to get a Pass A. I am excited for it to begin. I feel like I have all tools I need, I know what reference books to use and I will start studying them right after my interview (which I am now preparing myself to). In fact, the teacher explains what to do even during the pre interview tasks. Thank you Keehwan!
This course has been extremely informative, and helpful for me to prepare for taking a teaching English as a second language course. The instructor is clear and consistent, and there is quite a lot of condensed material here. The only constructive feedback I can offer is that the slideshow presentations make too much use of numbered lists, which are not actually helpful in memorizing the stages, or the helpful tips, or some other list of items. But, the final product is still nonetheless excellent.
Great course! I am supposed to start my CELTA on next January and I think this will greatly help! Thank you so much! Merry Christmas!!!
I HAVE LEARNED SO MANY THINGS DURING THIS COURSE AND THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PROVIDING SUCH KIND OF INFORMATIVE COURSE ON ONLINE
Thanks Kee for explaining about the four week CELTA course. It's really helpful. I got a very clear overview of CELTA course.
Clear detailed information in bite size chunks. Easy to follow and understand. It has given me a better understanding of what to expect when I do my course. Really helpful.
I bough this course a month before my CELTA course. I have done all the MOCK assignments and learned lesson plans and so on. it boosted my confidence. when I came to do my celta course I got really confused. The video lessons shown in this video was completely irrelevant even assignments. I even had a resubmission on my second assignment. I will not recommend you this course, it is waste of time and money. especially time. that I have spent watching videos and doing mock assignments.
It helped me a lot when I was taking my CELTA course, especially with the written assignments. I glad I enrolled in this preparation course.
I'm going to take a CELTA course which start from April of 2019, and I found this course very informative and helpful.
The course is very accessible and presents plenty of material including sample assessments which are very useful. Perhaps it would be useful to present a reading list which includes the material referenced in the assessments — I'm not sure whether different centres will prescribe different reading or not?
