Hi Claudius,

I am also planning on taking the CELTA course in Vienna, and live in the 20th district! Did you find it worthwhile? I am currently teaching a bit and like it, but want to expand my knowledge of grammer in order to be a better teacher. Are you teaching in Vienna now too?

Thanks in advance!
