Are you looking to acquire the English teaching certificate most employers and businesses look for?
If so, you may have considered applying for the CELTA course online because of the current circumstances.
But, is the CELTA application available online?
Do they give the same advantages as the CELTA course that teaches Face to Face?
Or are there differences between them?
Can You Get the Celta Course Online?
The answer is yes.
You can take the CELTA course online.
Here we have to clarify an important point that many people get confused with, wherever getting CELTA has long been available with two teaching systems.
The first is CELTA in the popular way known as Offline Learning Or as it is called Face 2 Face.
The second is CELTA with the Blended Learning System, Recently it became available to take CELTA with the FULLY ONLINE study system.
With everyone aware of the first and most popular method, which is going to one of the Cambridge Assessment English accredited training academies and studying there, Face 2 Face.
Let’s start by explaining the Blended Course.
It is that you study a part of the training course online, and the other part, you have to go to the academy or the training center to complete the rest of the lectures, so in this case, the course is not 100% online.
So it gets mixed up with some when he sees an advertisement for an Online CELTA course and finds in the ad description written that one of the conditions is to go to the academy to complete the course.
In fact, this course is not online, but it is called Blended.
The other type that we are talking about in this article is the Fully Online CELTA course.
It is that you complete all performance requirements online, and you do not need to go to the training center in this case.
Not all places offer this type of CELTA, so you should contact the academy first to find out if the course will be entirely online or not.
How Is This Course Taught Online?
