How is CELTA COURSE ONLINE at LANG different from LANG's  face-to-face CELTA course?

1CELTA 2 pathways

During the face-to-face course (which takes 20 days or 10 weekends to complete), you do all the input sessions and your teaching practice at LANG in Warsaw. The teaching practice means 6 hours of lessons you plan and run. You teach 2 groups of up to 12 adult learners, each at a different level (usually, A2 and B2).  

During the online course (which takes 13 weeks to complete), you do all the input sessions, work through multimedia materials organised into 30 units with an Orientation Module, do the interactive tasks, disuss topics in forums and collaborate with other trainees in a virtual classroom - all ONLINE, either solo or collaboratively, with tutor support, evaluation and comments. Then, during Weeks 8-9, you do your observed and evaluated teaching practice, observe other trainees' lessons and discuss your progress during an individual tutorial with your Tutor in Warsaw.

 

What happens ONLINE during the CELTA COURSE ONLINE?

There is an Orientation Module (Week 1) to start with. It takes up to 6 hours and it helps you learn how to work on the platform and it lets you meet your fellow trainees.

There are 30 units (each one takes up to 3 hours to complete) that you need to cover during the entire course.

The course timetable organises and manages your online work. You know which units you need to complete every week. But it is flexible within each week - you decide when exactly you work on them.

There are 7 fixed meetings in the virtual classroom (LiveRoom) held on Saturdays at 18:00-19:15, where you meet your Online Tutor and fellow trainees to work collaboratively.

There is a forum where you need to complete assigned tasks every week.

There are 4 written assignments to submit.

Aeddan Shaw – Main CELTA Tutor
Aeddan is a teacher, CELTA trainer and assessor who has been based in Krakow for over 10 years. A graduate in philosophy and applied linguistics, he takes great delight in learning first hand that most second language acquisition theories are wrong, thanks to his two small sons. With experience of delivering and assessing CELTA courses in both Europe and North America, Aeddan is particularly interested in the issues of teaching large, multilevel classes and with minimal resources.
As he is rather too fond of saying that he doesn’t have any hobbies, he has children.


Adrian PostAdrian Post - Main CELTA Tutor
Adrian has been a CELTA trainer since 2010 and has worked on many CELTA courses in Poland, the UK and Iran for a number of respected schools and institutions. He brings considerable teaching experience to the course, having worked with adult learners of all levels and ages, teaching General and Business English, Exam Preparation and ESP. He has also been a school director, written teaching materials and delivered lectures and workshops for educational publishers. He now teaches in-company and is studying for an MA in Educational Management at the University of Bath, UK.
When he’s not doing this, he tries hard to fulfil his role as an ‘old dad’ and to find time to keep up with world news – perhaps because he can’t travel as often and as far as he’d like to…

Milada Krajewska - CELTA Tutor
Milada works as the Academic Development Manager for the Lang Teacher Training Centre in Warsaw (ODN Lang), designing and organising professional development events for  teachers of English and other languages. When she did her CELTA, she had been teaching for 17 years, and what she loved about her CELTA adventure was the way she was constantly challenged to develop her teaching skills despite years of experience in teaching, training and writing ELT coursebooks. A real eye-opener. As a CELTA trainer, Milada loves to observe how trainees spread their lesson-planning-and-running wings, how they turn into acute observers of their friends' lessons and how much they benefit from giving and getting constructive feedback. Designing feedback and input sessions is the second best part of the CELTA tutoring experience for Milada.

"The best and the most useful course I've ever taken. It has changed my way of thinking about teaching English."

"I really enjoyed the experience - thanks to the tutors and my co-trainees. It's really worth your while to take the course if you treat teaching English seriously. There's no better way to get trained in the profession!"

“Thank you for your cool INPUT sessions and most of all for your belief in me and making me realise my STRENGTHS.”

“Thank you for the outstanding course. It really is no stretch to say that it was a life saving course.”
