  1. Hi guys
    wee bit confused...not sure which course to go for...CELTA or DELTA? which one is more recognised and respected? both give you a minimum of 120 hours of teaching.

    CELTA is the certificate, DELTA is the Dlpoma. DELTA requires you have CELTA or a similar ELT qualification first, as follows:

    <h2><a name="Requirements">[/URL]DELTA Entry Requirements</h2>Cambridge ESOL &lsquo;Syllabus and Assessment Guidelines&rsquo; stipulate that a candidate will normally:
    • have a first degree have some formal training in ELThave a minimum of two years&rsquo; full-time teaching experience (1200 hours) of ELT to adults within the last five years
    • have a range of teaching experience, involving work in different teaching contexts and experience of teaching learners at different levels
    • have a level of awareness and competence in English sufficient to complete all components of the course
    • be at least 21 years old
  3. thanks for ur reply, CELTA it is then :eek:)
