Whether you go on to teach business professionals, undergrads, adults or children, you will earn the respect of your students through your abilities as a teacher. And the most rewarding part of the CELTA course is knowing that all the hard work you put into the most respected and rigorous TESOL course in the world has resulted in smiling students who are motivated and inspired to work hard in your lessons, in positive feedback from your school director and having the confidence to walk into any classroom in any country and teach a great lesson.
