Should I choose CELTA or a TESOL course?
CELTA is offered by the Cambridge University, is an intensive 4 week course (now delivered through online mode) while the in-class part-time TESOL is a face-to-face course taken over a period of 8 weeks, with classes once every week. Both courses are recognised within the ESL industry. However, CELTA is considered to be more intensive and thus depending upon your requirement (for a job), your investment budget and time constraint, you can choose one of these courses.
English is not my first language, can I still take the course?
Yes, you can. You can opt for either a CELTA or an In-class TESOL. The course requires you to have a strong enough command of the English language that will enable you to successfully submit written coursework and teaching method essentials according to the standards of the University of Cambridge.
