CELTO: Certificate in English Language Teaching Online
I found the course easy to understand with easy to follow instructions. When sending in the finished project the staff members that handled the emails were professional and prompt. No complaints about the service at all. Great experience. 5 stars.
My experience with CELTO was a pleasant one from the beginning. What I enjoyed most about the CELTO experience other than their amazing study content, was the level of one-on-one support they offer to their learners. Their response time to my questions was so quick that it felt like I was their only student! I will certainly recommend this method of learning to anyone.
I came from a background of no online teaching experience and the CELTO course really equipped me with useful strategies for teaching online.
The world of education is often marred by questionable certification of academic courses. In order to differentiate between genuine, professional qualifications and those that are produced for commercial gain, it is essential that education companies provide accredited certification. I am delighted to be associated with INTESOL as the company is an outstanding example of this best practice.
I completed the CELTO course after teaching in the classroom for 9 years. The modules were targeted at online teaching and very practical. The course assisted me in adapting to a virtual environment. The section on phonics was very helpful and enabled me to assist the students with their pronunciation. The course supplied valuable resources to refer to when preparing lessons, and built my confidence to teach online. I can recommend CELTO to anyone interested in online teaching.
