    How are CELTA's 100 hours alotted? Are the six hours of "supervised practice teaching" included in the 100 or are they over and above? How many of those 100 hours are spent observing other teachers? If anyone out there has taken the course and can comment on the timetabling I would be greatly appreciative.

    I am interested to know if the CELTA is as well known aroudn the world as the SIT or TEFL INTERNATIONAL courses are? My friend thinks the CELTA is a good course but she doesn't know if it has the same profile as those American courses do...maybe because it is British?

    As I am sure you gathered, ykle's reply was tongue-in-cheek. CELTA is easily the most recognized and requested certificate in Europe. Elsewhere around the world you will need to do your research. Where do you want to teach? ....

    I teach in Japan and I have never heard of any of the courses you are talking about. I know SIT does Master's degrees and I know of a few other programs that run MA's here like Temple. If you're planning to teach in Japan I second the advice to do some research. I think you will find that a lot of schools here don't know anything about these certificates. ....

    The other issue you will want to keep in mind is who you are teaching. A growing number of teachers in Japan work primarily and even exclusively with children. The "A" in CELTA stands for "Adults." While the course likely isn't moot for teachers of young learners, it certainly wasn't designed for them. ....

    I wonder if the good folks at Cambridge take the time to contact schools that teach children and mistakenly request CELTA qualifications to inform them of the error. Me thinks not. ....

    What is it with everyone's infatuation with hours and training? You don't see Bachelor of Education programs advertising the hours it takes to complete them. I'm sure the total hours vary greatly from program to program and it isn't an issue. Why is it for teaching English abroad?

    Quality of hours of instruction is of far more importance, but that is difficult to use as a marketing tool, hence the numbers game. 100 hours of dithering certainly isn't the equal of a single hour of good instruction. ....
