A Capitol CELTA…

Was great to hear today from one of our January 2014 alumni, who’s currently putting everything she learnt on her CELTA at IH Buenos Aires into practice…

Dear Kate and Fran,

It’s Jessica from the January 2014 CELTA class. I just wanted to drop you a quick line with a warm hello from Washington DC.

Capitol Hill

For two months now I’ve been teaching ESL to young Hispanic immigrants from Central America (ages 19-21) at a public school here and absolutely adore my job! I’ve thought of you so often…the CELTA training has been extremely helpful in so many ways and I can’t thank you enough for really instilling these points (drilling pronunciation, chesting, CCQs etc) in us. Even after having taught German for 6 years I learned so, so much in your training and thanks to you I would hope (!) have become a better teacher. 

Anyway, today I’m even reusing my CELTA TP 8 (going to a restaurant, ordering from a menu etc.) because tomorrow we’re off to a “real American restaurant” to practice ordering in an authentic environment!


Long story short, thank you again. You were INCREDIBLE teachers. Tough 🙂 but we all learned so much. I can’t thank you enough! I find it’s rare that theoretical training actually comes in hand later in life but my CELTA materials truly do.

Hope you’re well.
