Hi, I'm Jo Gakonga,
founder of ELT-Training.com, and if you
are feeling overwhelmed by the notoriously intensive CELTA experience, you're
in the right place! I'm a CELTA Tutor with over 20 years experience
(I'm also a CELTA assessor and one of a dozen Joint Chief Assessors for
CELTA) and I understand the challenges of learning to teach English.
On this site are lots of EFL training materials designed to help you on your journey to becoming a brilliant English language teacher. The courses here aim
to break down exactly what you need to know into friendly, easy to understand,
video based chunks that you can go back to again and again, helping you to plan
and deliver great lessons. There is lot of free material including a blog and a resource library to help you with assignments, while all of
my paid courses come with lifetime access and a one-week, no
quibble, money back guarantee.

feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I'm always happy to
