    Unhappy CELTA Pre Interview Task - rejected

    Hi everyone,

    Recently I've applied for CELTA course in one the biggest cities in Europe and unfortunately my application does not meet the Cambridge ESOL requirements.

    According to trainer, my usage of written English needs further preparatory work. As a non-native speaker I do understand that my writing is sometimes bit "robotic" but I did not expect it to be so bad I've been teaching English for 4 years now and I love doing it. Being turned down at the very start feels quite bad and I feel somewhat demoralized.

    I'd appreciate anyone help with reviewing my task C (read here). Is it grammar? Style? Or maybe I've just missed the point here?



    Thanks a million
    Tom

    There are a few language issues- I would mention the omission of articles and punctuation. The content shows that you have thought about the issues and I can't see why this would be a problem, but "First lesson. New students, new faces. As well, for students teacher is new." is.
