Very useful: How to Teach Tenses (Rosemary Aitken).
No, it begins on the 2nd day of the course, but there's a schedule of who teaches on what day. Depends on the number of trainees in the course. You may be lucky and only have to teach on Day 3, like me. :)2. Does teaching practice begin the first day of the course?
Any tips on beating those pre-teaching nerves?
Nerves will always be there ... it was with me throughout the course! But it helps to be fully prepared, and to know your lesson inside out. Cue cards helped me tremendously!
I think it would be faster for you to use a word processor. You'll be given a full schedule on your first day, with all the relevant deadlines, so don't worry about that.3. Are there any samples of assignments completed by celta students available on the net so I can look through them? Do said assignments have to be hand-written? When must they be handed in?
Good luck! They said it would be a life-changing experience, and they were right. It will be stressful, but it will be worth it! :)
