Episode 102: What's Wrong With the CELTA? With Shannon Felt of TEFL Horizons – EVERYTHING EFL
Remember those intense, panic-filled, overwhelming days of your ESL teaching qualification? Those bloody assignments (I don't have time for this!), that nerve-wracking first teaching practice (I'm so nervous!) and spending 7 hours creating a one-hour lesson (where are my scissors?). In this meaty episode, I reminisce briefly about those days with Shannon Felt of TEFL Horizons. Then, we get to the good stuff: what should be included on the 21st Century CELTA course and maybe what needs to be chucked in the bin? Times change, people. So should the CELTA . Teaching has changed so much in the 20 years I've been doing it: the CELTA hasn't……much. Good or bad? You decide.
