No, we just advise that you wear something you are comfortable in and that you could imagine yourself wearing in a classroom situation.
Both the Academic Team and the Tutors have been very supportive and patient, in particular Rachel Williams, and Emily John. My sincere thanks to both of you, and the rest of the team for directing me when at stages I felt somewhat stressed and uncertain as to the way forward. I look forward to an exciting and inspiring teaching career (hopefully), putting into practise the vast source of materials covered during my i-to-i TEFL courses. Thanks again!
itoi is the best training institution I have ever been to. Thank you guys so much for the opportunity you have given me, and thank you so much for this life changing opportunity you have given. I will be forever grateful.
I am very impressed with i-to-i. They have been professional and supportive every step of the way.
I did a 320 hour level 5 diploma. I enjoyed the course but it is only now that I've started a TEFL job that I understand the true value of the course. My employer was very impressed by the diploma but I didn't get any additional pay from it so I was worried that I had wasted all that money when something more basic would do. Speaking to my colleagues, however, I learned that there is a vast difference between the training I received and the box-ticking excercise other TEFL courses are. Many teachers have never done a lesson plan, or anything practical in-person at all and wish they had done a more thorough course like i-to-i as they are completely unprepared for the job. I got my job through the i-to-i jobs board and it turned out to be one of the most professional, and well paid, English language companies in Hanoi with a strong focus on ongoing training and development. Other teachers paid up to £600 to a third party graduate recruitment scheme to work for the same company. Yeah they got a week's free accomodation when they got here but you can get a decent hotel room for £20 a night so they were massively ripped off. I-to-i not only gave me the real training I needed for the job but helped me get one of the best jobs going after the fact.
Incredible journey endless support. Amazing staff
To teach me English language and how may talk English proper
Thank you very much for the well-structured course. I really enjoyed the course. From the first lesson, I experienced personal growth. Support was just an e-mail away and always available.
I would loved it , i would recommend it to any friend
Just finished the Level 5 420- hr Diploma. I have a BA in English already, a Graduate Certificate in Education and classroom teaching experience, and thought I knew it all. I was disabused of this assumption from the very first assignment. This course is intensive, comprehensive and well programmed. They cover all the bases so thoroughly and insightfully- and the tutors are the real deal… so helpful in their comments . I would recommend this course to anyone. I am a better educator, will be a great teacher for the wealth of knowledge I got from I-to-I. Thank you, tutors, customer service team, everyone at i-to-i . Can’t say enough good things…
Customer service from Molly Robinson is absolutely phenomenal. She listens and explains to detail. Very helpful and kind. Thanks again.
I really enjoyed my time studying for my course. The help and feedback I received was phenomenal and very educational.
I have been a University Lecturer in South Africa, lecturing Engineering Surveying to black African students for 40 years. When I retired, I decided to take on a whole new career path and a friend recommended i-i , after which I registered for, and obtained the 180-hour TEFL Level 5 Certificate. I subsequently registered for, and have just completed the 420-hour TEFL Advanced Diploma. With my academic background I have no hesitation in acclaiming i-to-i for the advice and continuing reinforcement they have given me throughout my studies. Every time I needed assistance from them they have succeeded in "putting the student first" - an essential component of successful Teaching and Learning.
Very professionally presented. The course is concise, full of information, extra reading and tips. This was exactly what I was hoping for. The feedback on assignments is indepth, and clear. I enjoyed the course immensely and i am so glad I chose this company to work through. 😊
I HONESTLEY HAVE TO GIVE 10 STAR TO I-TO-I TEFL , NOT ONLY I ENJOYED GOING THROUGH LESSONS ONE BY ONE, I SURE LEARNED A LOT. ITS BEEN A GREAT JOURNEY AND FUN. THE TUTORS ARE WELL EDUCATED AND GUIDES YOU THROUGH YOUR ASSAIGNMENTS. THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR HELP
I very much enjoyed the course, even more so the longer it got. The tutors' feedback and help was amazing. I think the course is laid out very well and it teaches all the aspects of English teaching. Thanks very much for the experience.
Good morning... My experience with i-to-i TEFL has been phenomenal. The support and personal interest taken by the support and academic team of i-to-i is what separates i-to-i from the rest and as a "businesses" in making sure one does not give up and pushes through. i-to-i takes a personal interest and in ensuring each and every individual doing a TEFL course through them, will see it through till the end and this is so much appreciated. I had personal problems and two months after my course had expired and was uncompleted, I was allowed to resume through an extension and received the exact same support that I grew confident in and accustomed to and more. Once again, my complete respect and gratitude for and toward i-to-i !!!
I really enjoyed the time I spent working on the Level 5 180h course, it was fun and challenging. The course has a very good layout with plenty of important information one needs to be an effective TEFL teacher with a fundamental understanding on how to manage your class and provide a high quality level of teaching. The staff are very friendly, helpful and know what they are doing! The course outlines all the fundamental information you will need to be able to teach students from young ages and help them succeed in learning English as a secondary language. It has comprehensive information on what is expected from you as a TEFL teacher and highlights a wide variety of methods and activities that you can use for a range of different types of lessons. It has useful information for anticipating and solving difficulties associated with teaching younger students, as well as older students, and focuses on creating a safe learning environment that students will feel comfortable in. It will also help you with implementing your ideas into your lesson in a way that is fun, challenging and fair for students. The assessment criteria for the assignments have a high set of standards but are very fair regarding what is required of the learner to achieve their necessary aims. The feedback was very constructive and detailed. It highlighted all of my shortcomings and was well presented with well structured advice on how to achieve my goals, and was especially helpful in improving on my ability to plan a lesson properly. I truly appreciate the work and effort that my Tutor put into my assessments, as it gave me a clear vision of my level of understanding and it helped me build the confidence I need towards becoming a TEFL teacher. Without a doubt this course will help you along your journey to becoming a fully certified TEFL teacher and achieving your dreams! I can wholeheartedly recommend i-to-i if you want to become a confident and successful TEFL teacher. A big THANK YOU to Tim Keeley and everyone at i-to-i for helping me along my journey! I really look forward to working with you again in the future!
I recently completed my Level 5 Tefl course with i-to-i and I couldn't be happier with the experience. The course was informative, challenging, interesting and exciting. The tutors were supportive, feedbacks on the assignments were detailed and helpful. I am totally satisfied with having done this course and I would definitely recommend it to others.
I really enjoyed TEFL!!! I am now confident more than ever. I now believe I can structure my lesson plans. This is beautiful!
I really enjoyed my TEFL course with i-to-i TEFL. The various course contents are well presented, engaging and easy to follow. The assignments take some time to prepare but they are a good preparation for teaching in the future. When I had a question or needed help the support team was very responsive and got back to me very quickly. If looking for a solid TEFL qualification I definitely recommend i-to-i TEFL.
The i-to-i TEFL team from start to end have been Amazing!! The support they offered was just wonderful! Having a full time job and still battling with day to day duties whilst studying they Assisted with everything and gave me all the knowledge I needed in order to be a great TEFL teacher.

They are always eager to help. The tutors are amazing and kind. I’m glad I’ve started my TEFL journey here because I don’t think it would have gone any better.
I'm happy to share that I've completed my GA Level 5 Diploma in Teaching English as a Foreign Language at i-to-i. Thank you to Tutor and support team for helping with this. journey.
This company and the TEFL course I did change my life. The course is so thorough and easy to understand and is a true guide to a successful online teaching career. I have seen others and it doesn't compare. If you want to know which is the best...i-to-i TEFL is without a doubt! The assignments are hard which sets the high standards I prefer. The ultimate resource pack is a must. I am still using it as a reference and a backup since memory fails us sometimes. Customer service at i-to-i TEFL is superb. They are prompt to reply (considering time differences) and have exceeded my expectations every time. I recommend this company with pride and thankfulness.
very robust courses that prepare with everything you need to know about teaching English
course is amazing ,the advisors are friendly and extremely helpful
The team at i-to-i is amazing. They are fast at giving response and make sure to always be on hand to answer any questions you may have. Staff are friendly and always giving their best to help as needed.

I am so inlove with this couses just the best thing that could ever happen. I would recommend this to anyone who has a teaching heart
It was hard work juggling a full time job and the course. But you need to do what you need to do and it paid off. I enjoyed the course and the must say I learnt a lot.
I am a proud i-to-i TEFL graduate, owing to an exceptional and professional team of academic Tutors, advisors, and customer service representatives that gave excellent support, guidance, and feedback. I would strongly recommend i-to-i TEFL to anyone interested in studying to teach English overseas or online.
Just completed my third assignment. The course has been amazing so far, I am learning a lot and the tutors provide very helpful feedback on assignments. I am glad I chose i-to-i TEFL to get certified. Excited to continue learning!
Proudly i-to-i TEFL Graduate, I confidently recommend i-to-i for Teaching English Foreign Language as the Institution of choice. even with some ups and downs with 1 or 2 Assignments I received support, understanding and guidance from Assessor's, Tutor's and Director's. Many, many thanks again and kindest personal regards. Looking forward to getting in touch to see how I can start the next step in my journey to be the best from the best in my teaching career.
The learning material is thorough and ensures you are able to work through it progressively building on prior knowledge. The evaluations are fairly challenging so you are sure that you are being tested comprehensively and that when you pass you have a good understanding of the work
I have loved every second of the 180 hour course. It has been incredibly insightful and I have learnt so much with regards to teaching and the English language as a whole. The tutors are absolutely fantastic. They mark your work very quickly and provide constructive criticism and excellent feedback. I would recommend this course to any and everyone looking to start a career in teaching English as a foreign language. I am looking forward to journeying through my remaining courses.
I am loving this course. It looked daunting, but it is structured well and easy to follow. Turns out I have a knack for this. I really enjoying drawing up the lesson plans and loved the 3 assignment so far. Just finished my 180 hours course and on to the One-on-One and Business English course. Can't wait to start working. I am super excited for this next chapter in life.
I to I courses it’s not something that you can play with, I was somewhere in one of the college I did the same course I do at I to I campus in one month I was done but I can bet with my hand to cut it off you can’t do 520hours course at I to I campus in one year. I have seen many students who can finish their work and pass in short time but they can’t do what they study to support their lives. The lesson plans I did was hard for me but I did it by my self and I am sure if my teacher give it to me again I can do it again and again. I to I courses are real and heaven I really feel my head is carrying something 😂😂😂😂
Excellent communication and great help
I battled to access my course as I was not sure how to navigate the site. Matthew advised a representative from customer services would be in touch. Within minutes I received a phone call from Leah (bear in mind I am based in South Africa!) Leah advised me on where to access as well as sending me a how-to guide on mail. Excellent service all round, thank you and regards.
A very carefully and thoughtfully prepared course. Thank you so much!
Greetings Leah Burke Where do I start? I am totally in awe from the very first time we connected. You are efficient, friendly, knowledgeable and approachable. I know there are many different offers for these courses out there and quite frankly, I was confused until I dealt with you guys. Thank you for confirming by your service that I made the right choice. God bless. I wish you well. Julie Bosman
Victoria Sharratt was a very kind lady, gave information to the point and informed and emailed me immediately so I could understand what the exact procedure would be.
