Count Drawcula Episode 2

The CELTA Experience

The Celta is a initial teaching qualification that has become a sort of standard if you are interested in starting teaching. ELT teaching that is. I learned about it while interning at the British Council when a lovely teacher working there that was an absolute inspiration for me suggested I would be a great candidate for a Celta course. While living in Bucharest, I wouldn't have been able to do it as at that time there were no such courses on offer. The search for Celta was what brought me to Italy and eventually made me stay. My experience with the Celta was both forming and somewhat surreal as I think it takes so much out of you. I think I got cabin fever by Day 3 and stubborn as I am put all of my energy into finishing it and getting the most I could from that experience. Most people I've spoken to, who are teachers now, most of them have had a similar experience.
Count Drawcula has decided to go through with his Celta training and if his millennial, out of this world self is having troubles getting through it, well, then there is hope for all of us.
