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.
I took the 140-Hour Combined Course...overall I thought this was a decent course. For someone like myself who had no prior experience or knowledge of teaching, I think it's a very useful course to partake in. However, I did have a few issues with it. For one, there were numerous typos and grammatical mistakes littered all throughout the course. I find this quite odd considering the course's purpose is to teach people how to teach proper English. It just makes the course look sloppy and unprofessional. I also thought the self-check quizzes were at times irrelevant to the material that was presented in the course. Some of the quizzes had questions about things that were not even taught or included in the course, which I found to be frustrating. For the 20-hour practical portion of the course, I thought the directions for the Chicago location could've been much clearer (they told me the course was located in a restaurant when it was actually in a hotel), and there definitely should've been signage noting which floor and room number the course was in. Other than that, I think it was a decent investment, their customer support was pretty fast at responding to me when I had issues and the tutor who graded my final lesson plan was also very expedient. I was told it would take up to 7 business days to get my feedback and final grade, but the tutor responded the very next day, so that was awesome.
