Cambridge English Celta

International House Buenos Aires is one of the most popular and well-established CELTA course providers in South America.  We have been providing both full and part-time CELTA courses throughout the year for over a decade and are the first and only centre to run CELTA courses in Argentina.

What most sets us apart from other CELTA course providers in both South America and beyond is our vastly experienced team of in-house tutors, who ensure that every course is tailored to the needs of the individual candidates on each course, whether it is Face2Face or Online, full-time or part-time.

We also provide candidates on all of our courses, whether full-time or part-time, face2face or online, with a unique self-study / reference learning platform, focusing on lesson planning and language awareness, to support you before, during and after your CELTA course, at no additional cost.

The CELTA course provides speakers of English with initial training in teaching English as a foreign or second language (TEFL, EFL,TESOL and ELT) and leads to the internationally recognized qualification Cambridge English Level 5 Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (CELTA).  It is an introductory course for candidates who have little or no previous English language teaching experience or for candidates with some experience (or often plenty!) who are looking for a further professional development and an international qualification.  The courses are validated and the syllabus and assessment criteria set by Cambridge English.

The full-time Face2Face CELTA courses take place over 4 weeks, Monday to Friday, 9.00-16.30 at our school in Belgrano, Ciudad de Buenos Aires.  The full time Online CELTA courses take place over 5 weeks, Monday to Friday, 9.00 – 15.30 through Zoom.  The part-time course lasts 22 weeks and the live classes are on Friday evenings from 17.00 – 21.00 on Zoom.  All times are Buenos Aires times (UTC-3).

The minimum number of contact hours is 120, but you should calculate at least another 120 hours outside of the core timetable for background reading, lesson planning and assignment writing.  On the Face2Face full-time courses, there are 120 live classroom hours and on the Online full-time courses 125 live hours.  On the part-time online course there are 77 live hours on 22 Friday evenings, and the rest of the input is through online tasks and forums across the 22 weeks of the course.

During the course, candidates develop familiarity with the principles of effective teaching and acquire a range of practical skills for teaching English to adult learners.

The course is designed around a preparation, teaching and feedback cycle, and includes:

  • 6 hours of teaching practice across 8 lessons
  • 6 hours of observation of experienced teachers in the classroom
  • completion of 4 practically-focused written assignments
  • input sessions dealing with current methodology, language analysis and their application in the classroom

Please be aware that the full-time CELTA course is highly intensive. Candidates should not have any outside work or study commitments during the course.

The CELTA course programme is designed to enable candidates to:

  • Develop an awareness of language and a knowledge of the description of English and apply these in their professional practice
  • Develop an initial understanding of the contexts within which adults learn English, their motivations and the roles of the teacher and the learner
  • Develop familiarity with the principles and practice of effective teaching to adult learners of English
  • Develop basic skills for teaching adults in the language classroom
  • Develop familiarity with appropriate resources and materials for use with adult learners of English for teaching, testing and reference purposes
  • Identify opportunities for their own future development as professionals in the field

The course features are:

  • Extensive teaching practice every day (or every Friday part-time) (six hours in total)
  • Practical experience teaching students at different language levels
  • Detailed feedback and discussion sessions with a course tutor
  • Guided observation of qualified teachers  (six hours in total)
  • Seminars and demonstrations to improve language awareness
  • Classroom management and lesson planning

Syllabus Overview

The syllabus consists of five units of learning that deal with specific topic areas in the teaching of ESOL.

  • Unit 1 Learners and teachers, and the teaching and learning context
  • Unit 2 Language analysis and awareness
  • Unit 3 Language skills: reading, listening, speaking and writing
  • Unit 4 Planning and resources
  • Unit 5 Developing teaching skills and professionalism

Units 1, 4 and 5 focus on the preparation and delivery of ESOL teaching programmes. Units 2 and 3 focus on the content of ESOL teaching programmes as well as the pedagogic knowledge required for teaching language and language skills.

Assessment & Grading

You will be assessed throughout the course, with no final examination. Rest assured, trainees are always kept informed of their progress during the course and an external assessor, appointed by Cambridge English, moderates each course.

There are two components of assessment:

  1. Teaching practice

You will teach for a total of 6 hours, working with classes at two levels of ability. Assessment is based on your overall performance at the end of the 6 hours.

  1. Written assignments

You will complete four written assignments, which each focus on a different aspect of the syllabus.  The first focuses on attending to the learners and their learning; the second on analysing language in order to teach it effectively; the third on selecting and exploiting texts to develop language skills; and the last one focuses on your personal progress and development during the course and beyond.

To be awarded the certificate you must pass both components and show that you can:

  • assess learner needs, and plan and teach lessons which take account of learner backgrounds, learning preferences and current needs
  • demonstrate language knowledge and awareness and appropriate teaching strategies
  • demonstrate knowledge about language skills and how they may be acquired
  • plan and prepare lessons designed to develop learners’ overall language competence
  • demonstrate an appropriate range of teaching skills at two levels and show professional awareness and responsibility

There are three grades — Pass, Pass ‘B’ and Pass ‘A’.

A Pass is awarded to candidates whose performance overall in the teaching practice and in the written assignments meets the specified criteria. They will continue to need guidance to help them to develop and broaden their range of skills as teachers in post.

A Pass (Grade B) is awarded to candidates whose performance in the written assignments meets the specified criteria and who have demonstrated in their teaching practice a level of achievement significantly higher than that required to meet pass-level criteria in relation to:

  • classroom teaching skills

They will continue to need some guidance to help them to develop and broaden their range of skills as teachers in post.

A Pass (Grade A) is awarded to candidates whose performance in the written assignments meets the specified criteria and who have demonstrated in their teaching practice a level of ability and achievement and a level of awareness significantly higher than that required to meet pass-level criteria in relation to:

  • planning for effective teaching
  • classroom teaching skills

They will benefit from further guidance in post but will be able to work independently.

Candidates who fail to meet criteria in any or all assessed components will receive a Fail.

Candidates are ineligible for the award in cases where dishonesty or plagiarism is brought to the attention of the Cambridge English Teaching Awards.
