This is my first attempt at blogging so I hope my followers will find this interesting.
I just finished my CELTA course last month at CELT Athens. It was quite an experience!
I consider myself to be of above average intelligence, a classic overachiever, but I have to say that the first week of this course made me feel pretty stupid. It challenged me in so many ways.
The amount of material to be absorbed is daunting! I am so glad I finally decided to do it!!!
If anyone is considering taking this course in the future I can highly recommend it. I now look back at it with such satisfaction. The knowledge and confidence I’ve gained I can’t measure as it’s still growing.
The course is demanding with 6 hours of teaching practice, planning, teaching and four written assignments but it’s well worth it.
I put in numerous hours and had no social life for four months but in the end I got an A.!
Here is a short video clip of me teaching in one of my last Teaching Practices
