firstly, thank you for posting your request. I am planning on taking up the same course in South Africa, and I have been given the same questions to complete.

Can you assist me with the second part?

Hi,

We don't just give people answers. We try to help them to learn.

You will learn better if you try to answer the questions first yourself. Post your answers here, and we will check them for you and give you advice.

Similarly, we don't just hand people essays. We check what you try to write yourself.

Clive
All these questions come from 'tests' used in the application procedure for the CELTA course.

If you can't attempt these questions on your own, then you really shouldn't do the CELTA course. It's an extremely demanding course, it can be really stressful, and isn't cheap. It's absolutely pointless doing a CELTA if you're not suitable. A waste of time and money for all concerned.

Just attempt the questions yourself! They're supposed to be done alone! It's you who'll have to be doing the CELTA course, not the people on this forum.
