    A new development - I have just found out that in the same city, another institution offers TrinityCert TESOL for £800, the CELTA is £1,200.

    This question has probably been answered a thousand times, but is CELTA really worth £400 more than the Trinity course?

    No.

    CELTA is more widely known than Trinity's Cert TESOL, but both are recognised by such organisations as the British Council as being of equal value.

    You may be interested in a discussion here TEFL vs CELTA vs TESOL . There are other threads in this forum if you search.

    Good luck with your course.

    ps. You will see CELTA mentioned in job advertisements more than the Trinity Cert. Don't let that put you off. Most employers are happy with either. Any school that does not know about Trinity is probably not worth worrying about.

    Well, I've bit the bullet and confirmed my place on the CELTA course.

    I've got a list of books to go through and a task to complete, so I'd better get practicing!

    Are there any books/resources you could recommend or suggest things I do before the course?

    Thanks all,
    Shroob
