Best place for Cambridge CELTA?

Unread postby dinah » 30 Aug 2009, 03:55


I'd love to teach English in Russia, and having a qualification like the Cambridge CELTA certification is required. So, I'm looking for the best place for studying for the CELTA exam, I've heard is good, but I'm sure there's more out there!

Thank you in advance!

Firstly you don't need a CELTA to teach in Russia. A degree plus a TEFL Certificate is fine. (Another reason I'd suggest not taking a CELTA at this stage is that it is a very intensive course and not designed for complete beginners who usually find it too much; I always recommend to people to take the course after they've been in the business a couple of years and know the basics already.)

What might be useful is to talk to Serendipity Russia which in an American based school in Russia which introduces and trains English teachers. They run courses each year and can help you find work as well.
