    Reblogged this on Teaching English: Ins & Outs and commented:
    That’s exactly how I felt after my CELTA course! I would go even further to suggest that culture awareness is definitely missing from the CELTA course, at least in the context of this country.

    Thanks a lot for the input – it does feel great to know that somebody is trying to tackle the same issue, not particularly popular due to certain reasons.
