Global Village Calgary
Cambridge CELTA English Teacher Training
& Certificates in Calgary, Canada
My first experience at Global Village Calgary took place in 2002, when I enrolled in the general ESL program as an international student. Eight years later I am back, but this time as an ESL instructor.
Taking the CELTA at GV Calgary was by far one of the most rewarding academic experiences I've had. I had never stepped foot in the classroom as an instructor before, but the input sessions along with afternoon practice teaching equipped me with invaluable teaching techniques that I am now able to implement in my lessons.
One of the things I liked the most about the CELTA course is the student-centered self-reflective approach to teaching.
Also, both Jiri and Phil were extremely approachable, patient, and genuinely caring trainers. Their input sessions were fun and dynamic, and their feedback instructive and motivating.
The CELTA is a challenging and demanding program, but also very gratifying in terms of the knowledge and opportunities available afterwards.
I would highly recommend taking the CELTA at Global Village to anyone who is serious about pursuing a career in ESL teaching.
