CELTA Pre-interview tasks
You may find it useful to refer to one of these references when completing certain sections:
  • Teaching English Grammar – Jim Scrivener (Macmillan)
  • An A-Z of Grammar & Usage – Geoffrey Leech (Pearson)
  • Grammar for English Language Teachers, 2nd Edition – Martin Parrott (CUP)

Consider about 2 hours to complete these tasks.
Part one – Grammar

A. Name the underlined and numbered parts of speech from the following text:

"I (1) thought no more of Jean Charvin, but (2) by chance I met (3) him (4) next day on the road. He was (5) coming towards me. He carried a (6) black dispatch-case under (7) his (8) arm, and except for the (9) pink and white stripes (10) of his uniform and the ugly round straw that concealed his handsome (11) head of hair, you might (12) have taken him for a young lawyer on his way to court.
(from A Man with a Conscience by Somerset Maugham)

B. Name the underlined and numbered tenses (or verb phrases) in the following text and comment on the meaning.

As I was waiting (1) in line at the immigration counter, I became (2) aware of the fact that I was surrounded by people of my own nationality once again. I had been (3) away for almost five years and was no longer used to their accents and style of dressing. Finally, my passport was stamped (4) by a man who welcomed me back home and I exited into the arrival lounge of the airport. My parents were there to greet me. ´You haven't changed (5) at all´, said my mother as she hugged me. My father avoided saying anything personal. ´Not a very good welcome home, I'm afraid. it's raining (6) outside,´ he said. I suddenly felt that coming home was a big mistake.

C. When studying verb phrases with language learners, it is often necessary to analyse the form of each verb phrase, that is, to break it down into its component parts. If we take the first example from the text above, we can analyse the form in the following way:

Identify the name of the following underlined verb phrases (or tenses) and analyse the form in a similar way to the above example.

7. I've been living here for more than ten years.
8. I'll be leaving here on Friday
9. Toyota cars are made in Japan.

Part two - Vocabulary

A. In the following extract from the New Zealand Listener, the writer compares New Zealanders who travel overseas for a holiday with those who stay at home. A lot of the vocabulary used in this excerpt is very colourful.

“Those of us who spurn the delights of palm trees or Castlemaine and instead fire up the saloon and charge off down the road for our holidays will have noticed the change. The sea of tents now looks more like a bazaar. And, although the hold-up far ahead on state highway 1 will probably be someone carting their home on wheels, it is less likely to be the McLeans’ or Phillips’ old Zephyr or Classic caravan than a CI Motorhome.”
(N Z Listener)
B. In English, there are many words that are pronounced in the same way, but the spelling is different, for example, ‘passed’ and ‘past’. These kinds of words are called homophones. Sometimes in written English, proficient users make a mistake by using a homophone incorrectly. For example: I past all of my exams. Correct the homophones in the following sentences:
Part three - Pronunciation

A. List the number of syllables and mark the stressed syllable in the following groups of words.
Example: photo - 2 syllables stress - pho

B. In the following two-line conversation, decide which word in B’s reply is stressed.
A: Where do you come from?
B: I come from Wellington.
Stressed word: Wellington.

Part four - Text

This is your invitation to cruise onboard the worlds most famous ship and experience the worlds most famous ships unequalled reputation for style comfort and personalised service in january nineteen ninety six queen elizabeth two embarks on queen elizabeth twos annual world cruise and queen elizabeth two will again offer new zealand passengers unique and affordable opportunities to experience a slice of the ultimate adventure

Part five - Teaching and learning

A. Below are different stages in an English language lesson that aims to develop reading and speaking skills. The lesson centers around a written text that discusses The Greenhouse Effect on the planet. However, the order of activities is illogical.

Order each of the activities to make the lesson flow. Write a brief rationale explaining why you have chosen your particular order. For example: I have placed activity X after activity Z because students will need to understand that language before moving on to the next task.
