    Has anyone ever done (or taught) a TEFL course? I am starting a part-time Cambridge Celta course soon and am feeling quite nervous about it. Haven't studied for years!! All the stuff they've sent me looks quite daunting :eek: , feel slightly panicky!

    Any tips or advice would be very welcome.....:rolleyes:

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi SM, I have not done the CELTA course but I am currently studing C & G 7407 in Adult Literacy in the evenings. There is a lot of assignments and yes it is daunting, there's even an additional day for a class placement. I do worry about meeting the deadlines and preparing work for my class, but I do think that this keeps me on my toes.

    The group I'm in are very supportive and I think that you will find that you are not the only one with concerns. If you have any concerns do talk to your tutor.

    I want to teach, this subject area in addition to IT so I know that all the sacrifice I have to make to complete this course will be worth it.

    Good luck on your teaching journey. A colleague, studied this course and he went of to China for two years to teach.

    Thanks Sonkie and Jemax for your replies. Good to know I am not the only nervous panicking mature student out there. I guess I will get used to studying again. I am quite looking forward to it though, hope I have a good group and nice approachable tutor! Good luck with your courses too!
