Is CELTA a TESL or TEFL certificate?
It is both. CELTA covers the methodology and techniques used in both TESL (Teaching English as a Second Language) and TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language).
CELTA is often called an ELT (English Language Teaching) certificate because it is applicable to all types of English Language Teaching.
Do you offer the "TESL certificate"?
There is no such thing as "the TESL certificate", just as there is no such thing as "the B.A.". There are several types of TESL / TEFL / TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) certificates offered by many institutions; CELTA is one of those certificates.
CELTA is an ELT (English Language Teaching) certificate, which includes TESL and TEFL. It is the most widely recognized and respected international certificate offered in Mexico and around the world.
Why is CELTA so valued and recognized?
CELTA is a standardized course supervised by University of Cambridge English Assessment, which is part of the University of Cambridge in England.
Cambridge English Assessment ensures that all CELTA courses meet their standards in terms of curriculum and evaluation methods.
Cambridge appointed consultants visit each CELTA course in the world to ensure standardization. IH Mexico organizes 20 CELTA courses a year, in 4 different locations, so it is visited 20 times a year by Cambridge consultants.
Because CELTA is offered in centres around the world, employers have become familiar with what the course entails and know what they get when they hire a person with this certificate. They are confident that anyone with a CELTA certificate has received effective, practical and real-world training that has prepared them to go directly into a teaching position.
Can I take the course if English is not my native language?
Yes, although your English must be of an almost native level. This means that you need to have an English proficiency that allows you to complete all written assignments and teaching practice requirements in accordance with the standards of the University of Cambridge.
Do I need teaching experience to take CELTA?
No. Previous teaching experience is not a prerequisite to be accepted for a CELTA course.
Do I need a computer?
MMany people prefer to use a computer to perform written assignments and lesson plans.
You will write a lot in the course, so if you want to use one and have your own laptop, take it with you.
In addition, you can connect to our WiFi network.
We currently have several computers that are connected to a printer in the CELTA resource room. These facilities are available for all candidates to use during class time and have Microsoft Office software, as well as internet access.
It is important to mention that for the BLENDED course you must have access to your own computer to work online with classmates and the tutor.
