Pre-CELTA courses

Our pre-CELTA language awareness course is exclusively for candidates who have been accepted for CELTA at The ELT Hub. It is aimed at native English speakers, but may also be suitable for non-native speakers who may not be entirely confident with grammatical terms.

Course Aims
The course aims to increase your ability to describe grammar confidently – and this will be done in a fun and participatory environment. It will also provide you with an opportunity to get acquainted with some of your fellow CELTA course participants, course tutors, and the school building and surroundings, so that you’ll feel all the more ‘at home’ on the first day of the CELTA.

Course Structure
The course takes place over two days (Thursday and Friday) in the week immediately prior to the start of the CELTA course. There are 6 seminars (each of 75 minutes in length) over the 2 days.

Course Content
Seminars can include (but are not limited to) the following areas:

  • ▪ Basic Terminology to describe grammar, and word class
  • ▪ An introduction to Meaning, Form, Pronunciation & use
  • ▪ Verbs and Tenses: Future Forms and Past Tenses
  • ▪ Conditionals
  • ▪ The Perfect Aspect
  • ▪ The Active and Passive Voice and related structures
  • ▪ The Noun Phrase and Quantifiers
  • ▪ Vocabulary: Collocation and Multi-word expressions

Course Cost and Accommodation Options
The cost of the course is €100. In many cases, your accommodation for the CELTA course will generally be extended to include these days.
