What does the CELTA Course Cost?
If you would like to brush up on your language awareness and knowledge of grammar, we recommend Martin Parrott’s book Grammar for English Language Teachers; this is also an excellent reference book which will be of use throughout your teaching career. (We do not require trainees to have an in-depth knowledge of English grammar. Language awareness is acquired over time and over the course of your teaching career.) You can do further research on the Cambridge website regarding the criteria and assessment for the course.
