Celta course in Geneva, feedback wanted

Hello all,

I am thinking about enrolling in a Celta course at Bell School in Geneva. I am looking for feedback from people who have already taken this course.

First how competitive is the interview, selection process?

Second any feedback on the course in Geneva. How did you find the course? Did you feel well prepared to teach afterwards? Any other comments would be greatly appreciated!

Or if anyone has recommendations of other schools that offer Celta.

Thanks!!

I did it last year, thought it was good. Except there's no microwave!

Can't really comment on how competitive the interview process is, but you should read up on it a bit on the internet regarding grammar etc.

The teachers there were really good and felt confident to step right into it. The feedback sessions after teaching your lessons can be pretty brutal in front of everyone and it took some students to tears..

Just reading this post as thinking of doing a course with them too.

Has anyone done a celta with them more recently than the above posts? Worth the money? Was the support for the course good etc?

Would appreciate any feedback from anyone who has done a recent course through Bell.

thx

It's a killer! Be prepared for mega hard work and brutal treatment. Apparently most if not all CELTA teaching programmes are similar. Had friends who have done the course in England and in Budapest [it's cheaper there]!!!
