With this as my motivation, I want to gain the confidence and skills to reach my potential as an ESL teacher. The CELTA stands out as a great way for me to achieve this. Unlike other courses, it provides a hands-on experience that suites my learning style. By actively engaging in grammar and teaching methodology, I hope to gain a firm understanding of these fundamentals.
This will be greatly complemented by the assessed teaching practice that makes up the course. Applying methods of classroom management and lesson planning in a real-life context will be incredibly constructive. I hope this experience will develop my awareness for effective teaching.
