CELTA Syllabus


The following syllabus is covered through seminars, workshops, interactive lectures and includes specifically:

A.  INPUT SESSIONS

  • English grammatical structures and their functions
  • The teaching of lexis, pronunciation & discourse
  • Error analysis and correction
  • Current teaching methods
  • The learner, the teacher & the teaching/ learning context
  • Effective lesson planning & preparation
  • Classroom management
  • Classroom resources and textbooks
  • A brief study of a foreign language

B.  TEACHING PRACTICE

All trainees are required to teach a minimum of six hours of assessed teaching practice. At Language Link, candidates will teach students at two distinct levels: Elementary and Upper-intermediate. Candidates are required to submit a lesson plan and a copy of all materials used to the course tutor before the lesson. Following teaching practice, candidates must write a self-evaluation of their lesson which is used as a basis for feedback given by the course tutor and other CELTA candidates. Candidates will receive a written assessment of their lesson with a grade from the course tutor.

C.  SUPERVISED LESSON PREPARATION

The day before each teaching practice session, candidates have the opportunity to discuss their proposed lesson plans and materials with a course tutor. This enables the candidate to receive support, guidance and feedback before the supervised/assessed teaching practice sessions and make any suggested adjustments.

D.  WRITTEN ASSIGNMENTS

Candidates are required to complete four assignments to be submitted by given deadlines throughout the course. These are extremely practical and focus on four different aspects of teaching and learning a language:

  1. Language Analysis: A study of different areas of the English language system.

  2. A Case Study of a Learner: A detailed study and analysis of student's language and language skills.

  3. Materials Evaluation: An appreciation of materials used in ELT.

  4. Reflections on Classroom Practice: A collation of what has been learned from teaching practice, peer observation and observations of "live" lessons taught by experienced ELT professionals.

E.  TUTORIALS

There are two one to one tutorials within the course (weeks two and three) in which the candidate and a course tutor jointly evaluate progress in all aspects of the course and set out recommendations for the remainder of the course.

Timetable

The course is extremely intensive and candidates need to be able to plan their time in order to prepare for teaching practice, liaise with other candidates, complete assignments and undertake independent research. A sample timetable is included below:
