Presentation: Why CELTA? | May 4, 2013

Topic: Why CELTA?
Date: Saturday, May 4th, 2013
Time: 10am - 12pm
Venue: The British Council, Tripoli (see map below)

Glenn Allies
This presentation will deal with the relevance of the Cambridge Certificate of English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA) to the Libyan teaching context. Most language teachers and learners in Libya have experienced language learning and teaching from a teacher centred approach. The CELTA is a teacher training course that equips teachers to involve learners more; using the knowledge they (the learners) bring to the classroom to communicate in English. The talk will include a short demonstration on how vocabulary can be taught in a more student centred way instead of just telling students the meaning. The course syllabus, assessment and course structure will also be highlighted.
