Global Village Calgary
Cambridge CELTA English Teacher Training
& Certificates in Calgary, Canada
I started the CELTA course in May 2013 with no experience in and little knowledge of the ESL world. During the course, we learned everything from how to effectively plan a thorough lesson for every kind language skill to how to appropriately manage a classroom. Every week we were able to test the knowledge that we’ve gained from the lessons during actual teaching time. It is amazing how much I’ve learned in such a short time.
I really feel that the hands on practice and the instructors’ guidance have equipped me with the skills and confidence to start a new career as an ESL teacher. Right after the course, I joined the team at Global Village as a substitute teacher. Starting this position as a new teacher would have been far more intimidating for me if I hadn’t taken the CELTA course.
