It was a mesmerazing course, which has opened new opportunities for me as a teacher of English. The effect is powerful because all knowledge is gained through real practice with feedback from highly-experienced tutors. Thanks a lot!
In spite of being somewhat of a challenge, it was a pure joy to attend. The course was a great learning experience and developed a hunger for more :)
The course was extremely helpful and engaging. It gave me a whole new perspective on teaching and a lot of hands-on experience.
Our tutors were absolutely amazing! They are very professional and encouraging.
At times the course was exhausting but it was definitely worth doing.
CELTA is fun:)
The course was very practical and intensive. I really need it for my future job. Thank you for the opportunity to have it in St.Petersburg!
The course was excellent and very intense, not for the faint-hearted, to be sure. :) But as it is, it's very rewarding to have completed it and I strongly recommend every English teacher to take it. Sure, there's not a minute you can spare on your family while taking it :) and it sends your mind and emotions into overdrive, but the Celta course gives you an incomparable experience of advancing yourself in an almost tangible way. It was very exhausting and immensely enjoyable. And our tutors, if not exactly God-like, they were divine! (Rufus will get the joke, I'm sure :) )
Thank you, Lt-pro, that was a superbly organised course, we (trainees) truly felt how the staff was taking care of us. Everybody - the staff and the tutors - wanted us to succeed and we did! Thank you!
Absolutely happy to having had such an experience
The whole process of studying was very well-organized (timing, handouts, laptops, MFP and even water and cookies). The content of the course (input sessions and TPs) contributed to my further teacher development. I feel that I'm a better teacher now. I have no regrets about having taken the course. Thank you!!!
Highly professional tutors, helpful administrative staff, unforgettable experience :)
It`s been 4 weeks of practical experience and necessary knowledge to develop my teaching skills. The course itself is really intensive, but really rewarding. Fantastic tutors have always been friendly and supportive! Thanks to the administrative staff too, everything was great!
It was good. A very good, useful and inspiring experience. I would like the facilities to be improved. I would prefer to have more laptops for trainees available and to swap the light switchers for better convenience :)
The most experienced, professional, polite and helpful tutors.
Very nice and friendly administrative staff.
It was a real pleasure to work in such a great environment.
great! everyone was really helpful and the course itself is very useful.
Brilliant! Totally life-changing.
Overall impression of the course is positive. Input sessions were interesting, tutors helping. It was also good to observe professional teachers' classes. I think in future it is possible to add an input session about academic English teaching or English for specific purposes.
As for my performance in the course, it was a little bit stressful as the course was really intense. But I could see my progress by the end of the course.
The course is extremely intensive - thank goodness for the hard work of the tutors. The rapport teachers develop among themselves is incredible, and I have the feeling that I have gained not only a useful certification and much new knowledge, but many good friends as well.
For me personally it was very useful and very efficient.
Hard, but interesting!
Will miss people (tutors and peers)!
It was interesting, stressful and very useful.
An extremely useful course, thought too challenging in some aspects (I mean, the excess of assignments to type and, especially, the amount of word analysis). Teachers are not expected to be typing professionals, and without that the word analysis is really too time-consuming. All the rest was great and most helpful in my daily work.
The course was highly professional and well delivered. The tutors were professional and qualified. The studying and working conditions were appropriate and made convenient for the trainees. In general, my expectations of the CELTA course were fulfilled and I would like to thank my amazing tutors and Lt-Pro for the support and good organization. It was a pleasure to work with such a team.
I expected more. No clear instructions, no clear evaluation system. No one understood what a CELTA standard is and why our grades are that low.
