    Default Re: INTERVIEW QUESTIONS FOR CELTA!!PLEASE HELP :-(

    You have simply posted the questions and made no attempt that I can see at answering them. Of course people know the answers to these questions- but asking people to do what is tantamount to cheating for you is not a particularly good route to becoming a fine teacher. If you try, people will discuss things and make suggestions, but no one's going to just fill in the answers for you. If you want to become a teacher, how would you look on a piece of homework that someone had done for the student? Would you think it was a useful and valuable exercise?
