TEFL / CELTA
I did my CELTA in October-November 2005 in the Lewis school of Languages in Barcelona. I had a wonderful time there and the trainers were amazing. Still, I remember how scared I was trying to be a teacher for the first time. I was also the only non native speaker in the group of 7, 3 Americans, 3 Brits and me. The first time I had to plan a 15 minute lesson took me 3 hours. I have ‘grown’ since then. I did my modular DELTA in 2017 while working for the British Council Colombia and after that I was a TEFL teacher trainer for 3 years in Prague at https://teflworldwideprague.com/. The team I worked with was amazing as well and they are all very professional and passionate about teaching.
There I mostly taught lesson planning and some Methodology. I also had the opportunity to observe at least 500 trainees and give feedback on lessons. And I met so many wonderful trainees on their path on becoming a successful teacher. I still teach English to children and adults, but I also do some teacher training workshops on different topics.
I hope this CELTA/ TEFL resource page will help you with your journey on becoming a certified English teacher. Or it even help beginner teachers with some of the issues they are facing when teaching English.
