CELTA is a Cambridge University certificate for teachers of English who work with adults.  It is the de facto standard for English teachers around the world, and gives an opportunity to teach in the US and Europe.  It is a four-week course with a final attestation at the end of the fourth week. The main focus is the practical side of teaching.  The course is run entirely in English. The course is intended for teachers who plan to work abroad and wish to increase their qualifications in modern conditions; for those who speak English, but lack a pedagogical education (for example, translators); and is also necessary for those who plan to obtain a Cambridge University Delta diploma.  Registration for the summer CELTA course in 2019 is already open.

What is Celta? In the words of those who have passed in Language Link.

 
  1. «CELTA and CELTA YL courses were great. The guidance from the tutors was excellent. » V. Taranova, CELTA student, 11 Nov 2014
  2. «I was really enjoying every minute of the course. In spite of being challenging, it definitely helps people to develop their skills, get a lot of practical experience and extensive knowledge which will then help both professional teachers and those who have just started their career make thei lessons much more effective, interesting and active. » D. Prokopenko, CELTA student, 23 Oct 2014
  3. «I did my CELTA in Rostov-on-Don in July 2011 in one of the first groups in Rostov ever. An experienced teacher, I hadn’t realised all there was still to learn for me in teaching English. I want to thank Yuliana for helping me to go through this tough transformation from «No, I won’t be able.» to «Yes, I can!». She and all the tutors working there keep abreast of all the latest developments in ELT. Every trainee will definitely learn something new, practical and up-to-date. So, for me it was worth all the strenuous efforts and sleepless nights to say at the end «I survived CELTA!». So magic was this even in my life that I wanted to relieve it again, this time doing my DELTA in May-June 2013. » S. Chernyavsky, CELTA student, 20 Oct 2014
  4. «When I applied for CELTA course I had had five years of teaching experience, thus, I wasn’t expecting to get new knowledge in this sphere and the only aim was a certificate giving more opportunities in my career. However, owing to Yuliana I realised that there are no limits to studying. She taught me how to make lessons more interesting and engaging both for students and for myself. Not only have I learnt new methods, techniques and new means of teaching more efficiently, but also a lot of nuances that I had never thought of before. Also, I’d like to say that CELTA is an arduous and gruelling course but Yuliana’s help and support made it as stressless and easy as possible. I’m very grateful for that!» A. Bagdasaryan, CELTA student, 19 Oct 2014
  5. «This experience was invaluable. CELTA course consists of both practical and theoretical information. You can not only learn something but use this gained knowledge during teaching practices. It is considered to be a course for teachers without experience but even experienced teachers will know an awful lot of useful information. » O. Lukkina, CELTA student, 17 Oct 2015

Who is CELTA for?
CELTA is designed as an initial teacher training course for applicants with no previous experience. It may also be suitable for applicants with some experience but little formal training in the field of ELT.
 
Is the CELTA course only for native speakers of English?
No. However, you must have a high level of English, awareness of language and competence in written and spoken English that enables you to follow the CELTA course. This competency requirement also applies to native speakers.
 
Is there an age limit for CELTA applications?
No, but you must be over 20 years old by the end of the course.
 
What is the pre-course activity? How much time and preparation is involved?
The pre-course task involves about 12-15 hours of work. Although it isn’t assessed or marked, it’s very useful as initial preparation for the course, especially the sections on Language Awareness and Phonology. We’ll send it to you as soon as you’ve confirmed your place with payment.
 
Will the CELTA help me in making teaching my career?
Yes. Most schools recognise the CELTA as the minimum specialist qualification for teachers of English as a foreign language.
 
Do I need a University degree to apply for the CELTA course?
No, but most CELTA trainees have a tertiary qualification. The minimum requirement is a qualification that will allow you to enter Higher Education in your own country.
 
How can I teach without using the learners’ native language?
You need to give clear demonstrations, use simple language in your instructions, clear explanations, and use visual aids and gestures where necessary. With low level learners you need to ensure your language is graded to their level, while still remaining natural.
 
How much grammar should I know?
You are expected to have an awareness of most language areas so that you can help students with their problems. Your learning of the grammar really takes place when you teach it, because you have to research it when planning a language lesson. But we also include some input sessions on the course to help you develop this area.
 
Is personality important?
Everyone has a different teaching style. What is important on the course is being able to co-operate with and listen to other people, accept criticism, be flexible and be considerate to your fellow trainees.
 
Is the CELTA course stressful?
Yes. You will often be in stressful situations, since your lessons will be observed by your tutors and other trainees. You have to be able to meet deadlines in lesson preparation and written assignments. It helps to be organised and to be able to manage your time well.
 
How is the CELTA course assessed?
Assessment by the tutors is continuous, and you will be graded on your teaching practice, your written assignments and professional development. You will be given feedback after every lesson and there will be at least one progress tutorial during the course. Self-awareness and the ability to reflect on your teaching are important considerations. The CELTA course is also externally assessed by an assessor appointed by UCLES.
