πŸ˜ƒβœοΈπŸ’― Pass The Second CELTA Written Assignment (Part 1) πŸ’―βœοΈπŸ˜ƒ

A few weeks ago, I uploaded a video about the first CELTA assignment. In this post, I look at how to pass the second CELTA assignment. As this is quite a big task, I have split this video up into 2 parts. The first part (below), details what to consider when writing your essay, how best to complete the task as well as what to do if you have to resubmit your assignment.

If you enjoy the video, don’t forget to hit the Subscribe and Like button. When subscribing, click on the notification bell so you know when I upload Part 2 and you are one of the first ones to watch.

See you next week, at 1pm every Monday with a teaching related video.

Happy teaching!
