Happy New Year

by ucclangcent

It’s been a long time without a post on here. First things first, a very Happy New Year to you all.

We are back with a new term and this term I will teaching on our teacher-training course CELTA. This is a preparatory entry-level certificate in teaching English to adults run over ten weeks. It is a really intensive course, but ultimately rewarding. The trainees are thrown into the deep end almost immediately as on the second day of the course they will all get their first taste of things when they get to meet the students they will be teaching and give them a placement test to put them into the correct level class. As the course progresses I will be posting updates from the course and hopefully we can get some input from the trainees on the course.

So with that I wish them all the very best of luck. It will be hard work with lots of ups and downs, but in the end you will learn lots and make great new friends.

Here is a shot of campus this morning; a very foggy morning.
