Ensuring our courses are of a high quality and recognised by schools and employers around the world, is core to our values. All i-to-i courses undergo strict external monitoring and control, so you can be confident that your training is top quality.
This course is UK Government-regulated by Ofqual and their sought-after stamp will appear on your certificate. It is also DEAC-approved, meaning that it has received official recognition from the US Government-regulated awarding body.
Learn all about TEFL along with historical approaches for a good foundation to base the rest of your studying on.
Cover the first fundamental skill of teaching English: planning an effective lesson.
You’ll find out how best to construct a TEFL lesson to ensure it’s easy to follow in a classroom setting.
Learn how to use your environment to your advantage, including how to manage a classroom and create a good teaching environment.
You’ll go through the meaning of words, presenting vocabulary and checking your students’ understanding of it.
Word stress, intonation and word patterns are just a few of the topics you’ll cover.
From the different word types to meaning and uses, and how to build phrases and sentences.
You’ll get to grips with adapting your lessons to accommodate younger learners here, a valuable skill to have in the TEFL industry.
You’ll learn about the four skills: reading, writing, speaking, and listening. You’ll also learn how to teach them to your students, including the best approaches and how to choose appropriate teaching materials.
Access to information on coursebooks, ideas for activities and games, and even some guidance on finding that all-important first job.
You will have 17 weeks of study access. Most people complete the training in 4-8 weeks.
Instead of sticking to specified studying hours, we’ve made our course accessible via our online portal 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You’ll be able to track your progress throughout your studying, so that you know exactly where you’re up to. This means that at any time, and from any place, you can log in from your phone, laptop, PC or tablet and continue where you last left off.
It’s pretty simple. Once you enrol, you will be sent your log in details through email. Our support team and academics are on hand to help if you need any assistance along the way.
You don’t need to be an expert in grammar, the course will teach you everything you need to know in that area. Plus, you already speak English – so you already know it! You just don’t know that you know it.
Yes – you don’t have to be a native English speaker to teach English abroad or online, but you’ll need to have at least a near-native level of English to take one of our Level 5 Courses. If your English is good but not at a near-native level, why not take a look at our 120-hour Level 3 Course instead?
As this is an online course, you do need to have an internet connection and a suitable device to study on (laptop, desktop, tablet or phone). You will also need to have a media player on the device, as the course includes a number of short observational films and tutorials.
Good news, you will not need to sit any formal exams! However, you will need to submit and pass written assignments to pass your chosen TEFL Course. You also will need to pass multiple choice quizzes at various stages throughout the course to confirm that you have understood the material before moving on to the next part of the course. If you need some support, you can speak to our highly experienced and qualified academic support team, or our brilliant TEFL tutors, who are on hand to help out.
Our expert TEFL Support Team is available via email, telephone and livechat to answer your questions and support you through the course. The support team includes both operational staff, who can help you with practicalities of accessing and working through the course, and academic staff who can assist with TEFL specific questions. We’re a very friendly bunch and we’d love to hear from you!
Once you qualify, it’s time to start teaching! You will have access to our jobs board, so you can start applying for positions whenever you are ready. Our jobs team will be on hand to give you advice and support to help you land your dream TEFL job!

Excellent customer service. No delay in feedback. Well explained. Thank you for the great service.
The course is well-thought-out, it is interesting and provides many different mediums to learn and implement the coursework. The assignments are manageable yet challenging and the marking is fair. Well worth it!

The agent (Leah) I was working/speaking with helped me in a jiff. No hassle, no hiccups, problems solved in a matter of minute. When I started the chat, it states usually responds under 5min but I didn't expect my matter to be dealt with under 5min! That's how amazing the service was ...I ca... Read more
Love the engagement.... when signing up I had a problem on my end, I was assigned an agent that would email me every 2 hours. They walked me through, up until I was fully registered.

I am a non-native English speaker. During my enquiry with regard to choosing the best course suited for me, I logged a call request. I received a call from a consultant within 24 hrs. I had many questions and must say that the consultant was very helpful and patient all the time. On purchasing my 18... Read more
I have been having a great experience on this course. I would have done it earlier had I known about it. It's well structured. I can't wait to finish and start applying for teaching jobs, online or in a different country.

Prompt responses to my enquiries / queries. This assisted me to navigate my way through the material, to get an overview of what is expected of me.
Esl Student, 12/12/22
The consultant went out of his way to ensure that my payment was possible on the day, so that I qualified for the Black Friday special :)
I have found i-to-i TEFL to be very helpful, encouraging and, when I needed help, my tutor Peter Bowdery really helped me. I'm grateful for the response I received.
Callie Hendricks, 30/11/22
Yay, I am finally starting my TEFL journey with i-to-i, after many months. Thank you Nikki James for the great service and help to get me started.
I am halfway through the 180-hour course, I am 61 and it's been a long time since I studied :) I find the material well laid out and articulate, with a good amount of further reading and videos etc. I like the fact that while there are videos, these are kept to a minimum. There will be some who... Read more
I started at the beginning of November with my course and so far it has been straight to the point and gives me exactly what I need with regards to going through the work.

I had a query about one of the TEFL Prime help guides and the issue was resolved efficiently and to my satisfaction. Thank you.
