How does the 100% Online CELTA course work?
Up to now, “Online CELTA courses” have been blended courses, meaning partly online and partly face to face. Our new 100% Online CELTA course does not require any face to face training at all. You will complete all of the training, teaching practice and assignments online in Zoom. There is a dedicated input session on Zoom and your interview will also be via Zoom, so you will get firsthand experience of using Zoom even before the course has started. This is an intensive course so you can expect to receive 30 hours of training per week and spend an additional 15-25 hours studying in your own time. Wherever you are in the world, you will have access to this course and to the opportunities which will open up for you upon successful graduation from the CELTA.

What will the online training be like?
Monday to Friday, you will attend dynamic, practical training sessions online, led by our team of experienced CELTA tutors. We will give you access to our online classroom delivered via Zoom so that you can participate at the click of a button. During these training sessions, you will be able to work in pairs and small groups and collaborate as if you were in a real classroom. The methods and materials the tutors use in these sessions can be adapted and taken into your own classrooms. Subjects covered will include teaching methodologies, grammar and language awareness and selecting materials, amongst others.

Take a look at an example input session in the video on our website here: https://www.oxfordtefl.com/oxford-tefl-courses/cambridge-celta/cambridge-celta-100-online

What will the online Teaching Practice be like?
At the start of the course, you will be divided into small teaching practice groups and assigned an experienced tutor to guide you during your teaching practice. You will teach 6 hours in total to groups of between 6 and 12 students on average. You will receive one-to-one support planning your classes and your tutor will observe you and give you feedback on the classes you teach. You will also have the opportunity to observe your peers and give them feedback on their classes. All classes will be delivered via our online platform, Zoom, and you will teach a minimum of two levels. We also provide one dedicated input session on teaching in “real” classrooms and three video observations of these type of classes as part of your training.

Why should I take a CELTA course?
The Cambridge CELTA is one of only two TEFL qualifications that are listed by the British Council as an acceptable teaching qualification that meets their standards and requirements. This means that many institutions worldwide prefer to employ those with the Cambridge CELTA as opposed to other TEFL certifications.

If you would like to teach English abroad, this is possibly the best way you can start. We have been training teachers since 1998 and we are ready to help you gain your internationally-recognized TEFL certification too. Join over 4000 of our graduates now teaching worldwide!

What will I be able to do once I have a CELTA qualification?
Graduates of our CELTA courses typically go on to work in private language schools, teaching adult or young learner students around the world. Some also go on to teach students online or work for language training agencies. One of the great things about the CELTA qualification is that once you have it, you can work anywhere (visa permitting).

How will I be assessed?
You will be assessed throughout the course and there is no final examination. The CELTA course also takes into consideration various aspects of professionalism and professional development.
The two types of assessment are:
1. Teaching practice
You will teach online for a total of 6 hours, working with adult classes at a minimum of two levels of ability. Assessment is based on your overall performance.

2. Written assignments
You will complete four written assignments (each 750–1,000 words).

Oxford TEFL, Pragie is the best choice

Reviewed by Tatiana Ishkova 23.11.2017
I would definitely (without hesitation) recommend to undertake such a venture, and enroll in the program provided by Oxford House (OxfordTEFL) in Prague. First of all, the process of being enrolled is serious enough and you will have to do a lot of work before the course starts (online tests and tasks as well as recommended material for self-study) and the interview either in person or on Skype with the Director of Studies. I insist on your... read more

i attended this course over the Summer and it has been one of the best ways I've been able to improve my teaching skills.

The location of the school was so convenient and the school also helped in finding accommodation nearby.

My experience with Oxford TEFL Prague

Reviewed by Monika Kučerová 13.10.2016
Attending the course in Oxford Tefl Prague was the best decision. The tutors were really supportive and their feedback was very helpful. Every time we needed help, they were there for us. I really enjoyed the input sessions which were interesting, especially phonology. Everything was well organized and I had a great time. I didn’t expect it to be so intensive, but it was definitely worth it. Time flies really fast, when you are really busy, so... read more

Excellent!

Reviewed by Edward Watson 09.03.2016
A great experience. The tutors really cared and gave very useful feedback on practical teaching. 100% recommended. It was a very thorough course with theoretical and practical concepts... It was not easy as the workload can be intense but this is relevant to all certified courses... you come out of it ready to teach, which is the main thing!

Awesome course!

Reviewed by Jess Black 09.02.2016
If you are considering taking a TEFL/TESOL course, I insist that you take this one. The certificate you will receive is one of only two that are taken seriously by employers. The staff at Oxford House are all extremely friendly, fun and laid back. Their library of teaching materials is extremely well-stocked. The tutors are gentle with their feedback and are always available to offer advice whether it be on your teaching skills or where to... read more

Great support and so glad I did it

Reviewed by Expats.cz user 14.12.2015
I was very nervous going into the course and I wasn't sure that I had the confidence to teach but the course tutors really put my mind at ease and were always available to help. The other students were also great, we all worked together and hung out in the evenings and on weekends so I always felt like I had a friend or someone to bounce an idea off of. The teaching itself was great, the students who were learning English were friendly and... read more

A great team of professionals

Reviewed by Irene Serafini 11.12.2015
I was very happy with my experience at Oxford TEFL in Prague. Their team of trainer is very professional, they were very helpful and supportive during the course and I really felt that I learnt a lot during the course. I'd recommend to anyone wishing to pursue a professional career in TEFL! And Prague is amazing!

Oxford TEFL Prague

Reviewed by Steve Scott 07.01.2013
Oxford TEFL Prague is a fantastic course and from all accounts the best in Prague. I have just completed the December 2012 course. It is a highly practical intensive course that provides you with opportunities of ‘real’ teaching practice with ‘real’ students. You certainly will not find a more professional, knowledgeable, and committed group of instructors anywhere. The Oxford TEFL's Cert TESOL course is validated by Trinity College... read more

Supposidly, the way you can tell if a TEFL school is trully certified to, well, certify people, is if it has an outside school or company reviewing it; Oxford TEFL is one of a few in the area that is reviewed by Trinity University. What makes Oxford TEFL unique is its kind, patient staff and teachers, and also some of its classes for TEFL certifiers, such as the class in an unknown language, which involves students being taught a lesson in a... read more
