If you are hesitating over whether or not to take this course... don't! I found it very useful and interesting and you will learn and have fun at the same time.
It was really difficult for me. But I did it! Thank you!
I found the course very useful, even if you just complete the 120 hours, you are packed with a bunch of knowledge that will help you to create and teach an effective lesson. You are able to learn things you may have never thought about. I also monitor my own English now that I know more about the structure behind it.
The course was easy to follow and the content was very systematic. It can be followed at one's own pace, which is great for those who are still working full time. Three months limit is more than enough to complete the course.
I found this to be a professionally-delivered course that was user-friendly, varied, interesting and enjoyable! The practical classroom-based component was invaluable and well worth the effort and extra cost.
A very user friendly online course that was clearly structured and easy to follow. The turn around for the marking of assessment was very efficient. I would highly recommend this company for your online TEFL qualifications.
A friend of mine recommended i-to-i to me as she was very happy with what she got as learning experience and way of being taught. I must say that she was right and I also enjoyed it very much. I would definitely share on my experience and recommend it to my friends too. One thing I would improve would be the multimedia - include as much audio recording and videos as possible. This will help you create even more varied learning process and it reinforce understanding of many aspects of the course. Thank you for everything!
Just finished 30 one to one course, found the course well constructed and user friendly, 10 units in all, could have done the course quicker, only shocker was an essay required at the end, not being from a academic back ground or even uni, I thought the essay would let me down, but I passed and some constructive fed back, looking now for next course to do with i-to-i, highly recommended.
I found the course to be really interesting and made me more curious about experimenting with material and forms. The course gave me a different learning experience in many different ways – experience which will be a lifelong motivation for me. I am so looking forward to implementing it in a real class setting. Thank You TEFL for this awesome course!
I started the course with trepidation, it has been a long time since I did any 'academic' work! But I found the course to be very well structured, you can work at your own pace and revise as you go. There is a wealth of resources within the course - it is very thorough and as far as I can tell, there's nothing missing. I enjoyed the course, gaining confidence as I progressed. All in all, an excellent course which I would highly recommend.
I greatly appreciated all the support that was available. I had a difficult time downloading my lesson plan and essay, and the staff worked with me to scan and email them. Everyone I worked with at i-to-i TEFL was professional and helpful!
Good teaching training. I have been teaching English for a few years already and I wanted to brush up my technique and I'm glad I chose i-to-i to do it. A friend of mine recommended your company. I was able to get a discount, which was nice. I experienced no problems or glitches while taking the course. Lots of useful tips and links. Overall a very good experience. Definitely worth the time and money spent. Thank you for a no-hassle, positive experience. I feel much better qualified as a teacher.
Brilliant! Their response rate is fast and efficient! Loved the course.
i-to-i TEFL provided me with a great experience. They were very helpful and quick to assist. I found the content they provided was well presented, easy to use and worth the cost. I highly recommend i-to-i to anyone interested in TEFL and teaching abroad.
I had the oppurtunity to do this course in Cape Town .Wendy presented the course and i got real practical and inciteful teaching .i learn a great deal on how to present and teach a class and had great fun while doing it. Congratulations to Wendy for a job well done .
I really enjoyed this course. There was a great balance of theory and videos to demonstrate the theory practically. All of the material is accessible online. There is so many useful content included; I really feel that if you work through it all you will be well-prepared to teach English as a foreign language. The staff are so helpful and go out of their way to make the experience easy and rewarding. They respond to emails quickly, and even call you when necessary.
Very engaging, well set up course. I would have liked to see more films used. The course was easy to navigate and the material very helpful and interesting, however the quizzes/test sometimes had a question or two that didn't seem to really reflect the material and other questions were too easy. There were also a few typos spotted throughout. Other than that, basically 10/10.
I attended the course in Cape Town South Africa . This course helped me such a lot and especially brought home more understanding to the material i had attempted on the online course .I commmend the facilitator Wendy for a consise and well presented course and have already recommended this course to two more people . i wish this company all the sucess in the years forward.
This course was the best decision I've ever made. Not only do the course run you through the positive parts you will experience in class, they also run over the negative and possible hills you will have to climb over. By the End of the course, you will be hyped and ready to make a difference in students lives everywhere.
As someone with no previous teaching experience and as a mature student, following the course on-line , gave me a lot of flexibility to study the material in my own time at my own pace and to review/revise the material as many times as I wanted to. Instructor lead courses do not offer this flexibility. The on-line quizzes helped me evaluate my own strengths and weaknesses with respect to the materials covered. I believe the on-line quizzes are a necessity and provide the student with a self-evaluation tool. My only negative comment is that the on-line correction of the quizzes lacks flexibility with respect to correcting/grading of the answers. And, as a result, the system marks answers that are "potentially correct" as wrong. I realize computers cannot be made to judge or assess like us humans and, for this reason, I would suggest implementing a follow-up grading of the on-line quizzes by a tutor.
The course is delivered in a fun and interactive way, not the dreary lecture that many might imagine. i-to-i have trained over 175,000 people to TEFL, who’ve gone off to teach all over the world and many of them started just as you will, with the i-to-i TEFL course in Birmingham.
