This gives you a simple structure to follow and also allows you to focus on one subject at a time, making it easier for you to digest the information and remember the important bits!
Support with a smile is practically our middle name and our DELTA-qualified tutors will always be on hand to offer their expert knowledge and academic advice through the duration of your studies. You can catch them on the phone, via email or on our live web chat service to get experienced answers to all of your TEFL questions.

Want to try before you buy? We’ve put together a breakdown of the Courses you’ll cover on our Level 5 300 Hour Diploma so that you know exactly what you’re getting. (You’re welcome!). Have a read through them here:
Part 1: Level 5 180 Hour Online TEFL Course
The first part of the course will cover foundation TEFL learning which includes the fundamental basics like lesson planning and managing your classroom. Once you’ve mastered these, you’ll move on to some more in-depth topics, such as, teaching the four skills and delivering engaging lessons on vocabulary.
You’ll then learn all about teaching grammar – but don’t worry! You don’t need to be a grammar expert – we’ll teach you everything you need to know and by the end of this unit, you’ll have the skills to deliver an effective lesson on English grammar.
Next, you’ll get a good understanding of the differences between teaching older and younger students. Plus, you’ll learn about adapting your teaching styles and lesson plans to accommodate for younger students.
At the end of this Course, you’ll have strong knowledge of the key principles of TEFL and the confidence to start teaching!
Part 2: Level 5 Teaching One-to-One & Online Course
Learn how to personalise your teaching approach in this Specialist TEFL Course, through creating a unique syllabus considering your student and combating potential problems. You’ll also get some insider info on the technical aspects of teaching online to help you get set up as an online TEFL teacher.
Part 3: Level 5 Teaching Business English Course
English is the universal language and there’s a high demand for adults to learn it to help them in their business negotiations and partnerships. In this Specialist TEFL Course, you’ll go through business language and grammar, meetings and networking and different teaching methods so that you’re ready for your first business English lesson.
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. This means that you can log in from your phone, laptop, PC or tablet and continue where you last left off any time and any place. What’s more, you’ll be able to track your progress throughout so that you know exactly where you’re up to.
You’ll also benefit from support and expert advice from our team of DELTA-qualified tutors. Throughout the entirety of your Course, they’ll be ready and waiting for your TEFL questions – and with their wealth of industry knowledge and experience, you’ll always get the answers you need.
This course, as well as all of our top TEFL Courses, is regulated by the English Government department, Ofqual. So, you can rest assured that the content you study will be of the highest quality and your TEFL qualification will internationally-recognised and favoured by employers all over the world.
Who are Ofqual?
Ofqual is the British exam watchdog and their job is to ensure qualifications awarded are of the highest standard. An Ofqual stamp of approval on your qualification will be recognised worldwide and is highly respected by employers, pushing your resume to the top of the pile and getting you your dream TEFL job!
Did you know?
We’ve also received independent accreditation from the ODLQC (Open & Distance Learning Quality Council) which is recognised by employers across the globe giving you a qualification which will give you the best start on your TEFL journey.
With every one of our TEFL Courses, you’ll get expert guidance from our team of DELTA-qualified tutors throughout your study time. Their combined experience means that you’ll always get comprehensive answers and you can get in touch with them via email, phone or our live web chat service.
This all depends on how you want to use your qualification. If you want access to better prospects, higher paying positions and more benefits, we’d always recommend taking a Level 5 Course.
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 you know it.
Yes – you don’t have to be a native English speaker to teach English 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 range of Level 3 Courses instead?
You don’t need any qualifications, other than TEFL, to teach online or abroad. A few countries may ask for a bachelor’s degree for visa purposes but there are many, many places you can teach without a degree!
Ofqual – or the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation – are a department of the UK Government who assess qualifications to make sure they hit the criteria that shows they qualify as legitimate certifications. They regulate all of our top TEFL Courses and you can see i-to-i on their register here.
To complete the 180 hours of online training, you'll get 180 days.
For the 60 hour specialist courses, you'll get 35 days for each one.
The classroom element of the course is a total of 20 hours spread across 2 full days.
The Level 5 300 Hour Diploma in TEFL doesn’t include any classroom learning but we do offer a Level 5 320 Hour Diploma in TEFL which has all of the same content as the 300 but it also includes our 20 Hour Classroom TEFL Course. We’d always recommend taking some in-class training if you can attend one of the dates and locations on offer as this will make you a stronger candidate when you’re applying for TEFL jobs.
From our friendly TEFL Experts to our DELTA-qualified tutors; our whole squad is passionate about providing excellent customer service – and we’ll be there for you on every step of your TEFL journey.
Here at i-to-i, we’ve built a very strong name for ourselves in the industry. So, not only will your qualification be respected and recognised, it’ll be favoured by employers around the globe.
