In Response To: Re: Review for Celta courses? (carla)

PLEASE! I am a judge and attorney, no way is Celta going to be the "hardest thing ever" I just don't understand why it is 2-3x more than oxford seminar and doesn't have reasonable weekend hours to accommodate those of us who work.

LOL! I concur; the CELTA program is not the "hardest thing ever" for those used to rigorous study or a job that requires a high degree of intensity. However, it's an entry-level English language teaching qualification that doesn't require a university degree for course enrollment, so for some would-be teachers, the level of commitment and focus needed to complete the course is a huge strain.

Yes, the CELTA costs more than mediocre TEFL courses such as the one Oxford Seminars offers. But the cost is worth it in terms of the ROI since the CELTA is recognized worldwide as the standard for entry-level teaching qualifications. As such, the course is offered in many countries around the world which gives you the option of taking it in your target country once you're ready to head abroad.
