Dear teachers,

I am not sure if this is the right section to post my question.

I am thinking about applying for the CELTA courses in the future.

The level of my English is (almost) C1. I have been informed that one should be able to achieve at least band score 7 in the IELTS test before applying for the courses.

I haven't taken the test yet, since I need to study in order to be able to deal with the task 1 and expand my vocabulary.

What woul be the best way to prepare for the coures? And how long should I prepare before applying? Are there any books I should study beforehand? Some of you already hold the Celta certificate. Could you please describe your experience?
