Write about why you want to follow the CELTA course and why you think you would be suited to a career in teaching English. (Minimum of 250 words).
I am writing to apply to your higly esteemed school for the CELTA course in summer of 2009 because of the positive reviews from hotcourses.com and also because of the close proximity to central London.
I will be enrolling on the course as an EFL teacher with over five years classroom experience and also with some other EFL qualifications. I have specialist certificates, diplomas and graduate diplomas in TEFL and TESOL which I did online.
I decided to follow the CELTA course because of the classroom/teaching experience which I’ve longed for particularly in the UK, the course contents, its relevancy to English language teaching, the certificate recognition, perhaps better job prospects in the future and most of all, self-fulfillment.
I am already in the teaching profession, so it’s already my career and I don’t see myself ditching it and venturing into other disciplines at least in the nearest future.
During my teaching career, I’ve developed a strong passion for the daily tasks involved. I’ve come to stay in this profession because of the joy I derived when I see my students grow in their studies and life endeavours. I couldn’t be happier when I receive calls from my students (current or former) telling me about their success in exams, job interviews or further studies elsewhere.
Based on my life and work experience (having worked in different sectors and continents so far), couple with my outgoing personality and charisma I believe I am well and most suited for a teaching career. I look forward to give my very best in the course come August/September, 2009, hopefully do well in the tasks and come out a better and refined teacher.
