FREE CLASSES WITH CELTA TRAINEES
Most of our Free Classes are taught by CELTA trainees. This means that your teachers are training to teach English to foreign students and they are not yet qualified language teachers; this is why the lessons are "free".
WHO CAN JOIN?
Adult Students who are Elementary or Intermediate level.
WHEN ARE THE LESSONS?
The lessons take place at the same time as the CELTA teacher training course.
- Lessons will usually take place mid week.
- Sometimes lessons will be in the mornings (between 9:00-11:00 GMT), sometimes in the afternoon (between 13:00-15:00 GMT), and sometimes in the evenings (between 18:00-20.00 GMT).
- Sometimes lessons will be every day (ie Monday to Friday) and sometimes they may be on one or two days per week.
The exact days and times of the lessons will depend of the type of teacher training course we run (eg full time, part time, or online) and the number of trainee teachers we have; but we will always offer students a minimum of 15 x 45 min lessons per course.
WHO WILL TEACH THESE LESSON?
The teachers for most of the lessons will be "trainee teachers" who are following the Cambridge University CELTA teacher training course. Sometimes the lessons will be with with qualified teachers who will teach lessons so that the trainee teachers can observe them.
