In March 2014 I completed the Cambridge CELTA English Teaching course in Strasbourg, France. I completed 60 hours of work directly related to teaching practice. This included collaborative planning, peer observation and shared evaluation and feedback. Within this framework, I also completed 6 hours of individual teaching which was observed and assessed by an experienced trainer.
As I begin my career in teaching English as a second language I hope to gain more experience in the industry and get a better understanding of what it’s all about. I learnt a lot during the CELTA course – it was one of the toughest months I’ve ever completed! – but the rewards that came with it made this a job which I am very interested in continuing to pursue.
