What is the CELTA?

The Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages formerly ‘Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults’ (CELTA, /seltə/) is an initial credential ( pre-service qualification) for teachers of English as a foreign language, a well known requirement for those entering the field of English language teaching.
