Lucy Makepeach in Cambodia

Lucy Makepeace

Lucy taught in Cambodia for two months before being offered a permanent role in Phnom Penh.

Knowing that I am helping these children and adults to build their confidence and improve their English is so rewarding, and I find their determination and humility inspiring. They are not only learning from me, but I have learnt so much from them too.

Jasmine-Leann taught in Thailand for two months on the Thailand TEFL Internship

I wish everyone could spend a period of their lives in a school such as this to truly put what it is important into perspective. The world would definitely be a better place.

Charlia Adams in Cambodia

Charlie Adams

Charlie taught in Cambodia for two months on the Cambodia TEFL Internship

I really enjoyed immersing myself in the culture and I’ve learnt such a lot. The kids are incredible, and their attitude towards learning is inspiring. It was definitely the children that made my teaching experience so enjoyable.

Rachel Melton in South Africa

Rachel Melton

Rachel taught in South Africa for two months before securing a permanent teaching role in China

I was already planning on going travelling and this meant I could travel and do something meaningful too! Teaching the children was incredible and made me realise what I want to do as a career later on in life: teach! I also made some pretty close friendships as well as getting to live in an amazing city.

How does a TEFL Experience work?

Image description

Will you help me plan? There seems to be a lot to organise

Absolutely. Our staff know TEFL inside out! You’ll have a TEFL Adviser to help you choose an experience to fit you, then advise on things like organising your visa. Once you touch down in-country, our partners will take over – they’re local experts and can even recommend the best spot for a beer. We’ll give as much (or as little) support as you need – just ask!

Image description

I want to see the world, but I'm worried about travelling alone!

Don’t worry – we get it. It can be nerve-wracking to set off overseas alone, but on a TEFL Experience you’ll be with a group of travellers who are all in the same boat. It’s the perfect chance to make new friends and enjoy the support that group travel provides.

Image description

What kind of additional costs am I looking at?

The money you pay us covers the essentials like accommodation, meals and airport pickups. As well as this, you’ll need to book flights, cover your visa and sometimes police check costs, and bring spare cash to cover things like weekend meals, excursions, sightseeing and shopping. We’ll let you work out your own budget for this.

Very experienced tutor. Huge amount of information delivered in a very enjoyable way. Very practical and interactive. Good venue. Excellent
i-to-i is well organized, planned and easy to follow. Affordable price and great support. when you need some extra help and support or when you have a problem, their responds are very quick. The support team is always there!! This course is very useful that it'll keep you motivated and give you confidence. I recommend to anyone. You can extend your courses as you like , keep your course account even after course expiration, I find it very useful. it's like whenever you feel like going for extra qualification all you have to do is come back to i-to-i account and pay for an extra course to keep you going. I paid for a 300hr something course but right now I have completed only 120hr course. I passed it and my certificate is on the way. I'm looking forward to complete other parts of my course as well. The only problem when you're buying a course bundle is actually all the courses are not together, each sub courses are presented separated so when you complete the 120hr course you actually get 120hr course certificate once you finish the course. I guess for each sub course it's like that so I'm not sure whether I'm supposed to get a certificate of 300hr something if I complete the course bundle I bought. Anyway I highly recommend your online TEFL course with i-to-i. When looking for a good course I've done my search online to find many sites providing very expensive courses but why go for expensive ones when you can have courses for affordable prices with such a well organized and a qualified team to help you through out the course?!! Good luck and thank you i-to-i team!
I was very interested in the Vietnam paid internship and spent a lot of time on the phone to an adviser at I-to-I who was very helpful patient and kind and rang me up on regular occasions to reassure me and to answer the hundreds of questions that I had about the internship so that I felt confident enough to cough up the £750 fee which pays for accommodation and the orientation over in Vietnam. One of my questions was about my appearance, I told them that I’ve got very neat, clean dreadlocks and facial piercings and an arm tattoo which covers a scar- but along with this I also mentioned that i intended to wear my hair back in a neat bun and that I was happy to take my piercings out and would obviously cover all tattoos. In response to this I got laughed at, and told not to be silly and that this was absolutely fine as long as I took my piercings out and covered my tattoos as intended. One other question was about the accommodation Surprisingly I-to-I were not able to provide me with any example photos of what the accommodation was going to look like and considering you are making a home there for 5 months you'd think they'd have that covered. Anyway my friend and I painstakingly make the decisions to leave our homes, partners, friends and families to make this massive exciting step towards our new careers. I am already qualified with a 140 hour TEFL qualification and have a degree in English literature so am more than qualified enough for this position so was confident that I was going to accepted and that his was the beginning of a new life for me. I was shocked however after paying £750 to I-to-I to have absolutely no further contact from them after all of the reassurance, not a single word to tell me what would happen next or to congratulate me on my decision. I was handed straight to the partners in Vietnam who sent me an application form to fill out - which I did to a very high standard - I was very confident in the fact that I had all of the necessary qualifications and also had lots of other great qualities necessary in a teacher. I included details of my previous work experience working with children with disabilities. I sent all of this information off very promptly because I am a competent and organised person. It came to sending my documents off which I did once again very promptly. We were asked to send a signed contract which made the entire experience sound awful. On reading the contract I was filled with doubt because it sounded so awful and I was left awake all hours of the night worrying that it was going to be so horrible that I didn’t want to go anymore. It stated that we may be expected to work over 6 days, that we were not allowed to plan trips, that we had to pay for a $75 mandatory invasive health check (which was not made clear by I-to-I it is in the terms and conditions but this should be should stated very clearly as an added cost!!! ) Also had to send them a picture which I did of course including the facial piercings I intended to remove on commencing the internship (not 3 months beforehand) and it was a very lovely photo too. I didn’t think this photo was very consequential I thought it was just to match up to the passport- wasn’t aware it was the main method of deciding on the success of an application. Confident that I’ve got all the qualifications, reassured that my appearance isn’t an issue, I go ahead and tell my landlord that I’m going to be leaving in January to which he replies "that’s great I’m selling up then". So a couple of days later I get an email very bluntly explaining that I have been rejected from the internship and that they refuse to give me any reason for this so that I should get in touch with i-to-i to organise a refund or to see if there is any other experience I can take part in. Excuse me? I am more than qualified and more than competent as I have proven and I have been entirely discriminated against because of my appearance? Which I made clear from the very beginning and was willing to comply with the dress code. Had a very lucky escape because speaking to my teacher friends around the world i-to-i are renowned for messing people around and not sending them their certificates or ripping them off in one sense or another. So I go ahead and ring i-to-i about this and there was absolutely no sympathy, no compassion and I was treated and made to feel as if this was my fault in some way. I was not offered a refund I had to ask for it, I was not offered any other experiences I had to ask about them they did not try in any way to accommodate for the situation or to try and make it less stressful. Now I have to move out of my home for absolutely no reason, am absolutely emotionally drained by the whole experience made to feel like less of a person because of my appearance? I’m sorry but what kind of joke is this ? This is the 21st century !? I understand cultures vary and that this was a professional job but when I’ve already made it clear about my appearance and my intentions to conform, i-to-i have a duty to inform me at least why I was rejected – But of course they can’t because they know this decision is not based on any fair grounds. The girl who talked to me basically laughed and said it’s all cultural and had a "what do you want me to do about it" attitude. A little compassion goes a long way when you’re dealing with human beings. I am absolutely gutted to be treated like this but I’m so relieved that I-to-I or sly-to-sly decided to mess me around BEFORE I got over there for 5 months ! Thanks for the emotional roller coaster sly-to-sly it’s been a blast! Luckily I’m a positive person so used this experience to grow, I’ve learnt a lot about myself in the process. I’ve reinforced in myself that I am more than what I look like, that I am a competent, organised, compassionate, enthusiastic, dedicated, qualified, educated, intelligent, kind, funny and above all interesting person with so much to offer to the right people so I think your partners in Vietnam have missed out on a great opportunity to have me teach their children so I'd like to offer my apologies cause its genuinely their loss. In closing - communicate with people after they've paid you £750 - don't lie about appearance not mattering because it clearly does and make this very clear to anybody out there with a personality a bit more interesting than a wet flannel. - don't treat people like it’s their fault they got rejected - have a bit of compassion - be a bit more polite -dont make people who get rejected ask for a refund, you should be the ones to contact them- offerings support – advice and of course that refund!
