I have friends who engaged with British Council before. I'm not sure if its CELTA. Mind sharing with all whats a CELTA?

Wow! Thanks for your info-sharing Christine. Being in the education industry for about 2 years now and this is definitely new to me. Sorry for not being to help.

So, you are pursuing in a career of teaching English? How far can the credential of CELTA brings you? I mean, what would be the level of your students? Diploma students? Degree students?

Hi, sorry to pinjam this thread a bit.

My questions:

1. Comparing british council and cambridge, which cert is more practical?

2. Does cambridge centre or british council accept external students? meaning we enrol ourself and take the exam without attending their courses?

Thanks a lot.
