    Default Celta Application

    Hi, anyone help a rusty teacher. The language analysis question in the Celta Application form wants me to :
    Label the seven underlined words using grammatical terminology. The first has been done as an example.

    My students rightly expect me to research my grammar before I deliver the lesson.

    My = adjective rightly = adverb me = object to research = verb

    grammar = noun deliver = verb the = article

    Is that right?

    Also the methodology section asks the following:

    1. You have decided to use a newspaper article for reading practice. Here are some of the activities you have planned for the newspaper text. Decide what order you would do them in. Justify your choices.

    • The learners find examples of the past tense in the text
    • The learners read the text and answer ten questions on the information in it
    • Give the learners the headline from the article and they predict the possible content- they read to check
    • The learners discuss their opinions on the text
    • You give the learners some phrases and they match them to synonyms in the text
    My answer would be c, b, a, e, d
    I'm not sure if there is a definite right answer but is this a definite no?

    Thank you from a hopeful future Celta student.

    The course providers want to know what you know, not what we know, as they need to have some idea of whether you stand a reasonable chance of getting through the course successessfully. It would not be right for us to help you.

    Do not worry too much about getting a 'high mark' in this sort of 'test'. If you answered everything perfectly, you probably wouldn't need to take the course.

    Good luck with the course.

    You could expand on a few of your answers to be more exact IMO.
