Hey all, so the day is near. I will be taking my CELTA in Bogota starting Monday. Is there any tips anyone has for things I may not have thought to pack? Thoughts on preparing for the course? First thing I should do in Bogota?

PS. Anyone in Bogota feel free to PM me.

Congrats on starting your CELTA.

Is it a 4 week intensive course or longer?

Be prepared to spend a lot of after class hours preparing for Lesson Plans and assignments.

It is very intense and very structured however, you learn a great amount in only 4 weeks.

You are right, a lot of work and learning going on. I'm liking it so far though. Bogota is a little cold for my taste though.
