CELTA

I start my CELTA training this evening; 3 evenings a week for 4 months.  I confess to being a little bit nervous, partly because, even having taken a taster day, I don’t really know what to expect this evening.  The class is from 17.30 to 21.30 but does that include a break?  Long enough to grab  a coffee or eat a sandwich?  What’s actually going to happen?

This reminds me that whenever organising something it’s really important to make sure that the participants/guests/pupils or whoever is attending are comfortable with what is going to take place.  I feel slightly on the back foot before I’ve even started which is probably unnecessary.

So, I’m about to find out just how difficult it is to learn English as a foreign language.  Good luck to me, hope I can a) stay awake and b) concentrate for that long when I’m usually relaxing, reading or watching television!
