The Birmingham team will give you the classroom foundations you need to effectively teach English as a foreign language on either a 1 or 2 day classroom course.
The TEFL course in Birmingham is taught by a tutor with at least three years’ experience teaching English overseas, so you’re in the hands of an expert who will be able to answer any questions you have. The internationally recognised i-to-i TEFL courses in Birmingham introduce you to the most up-to-date teaching methods, as well as key topics such as classroom management and how to teach English grammar.
The course is delivered in a fun and interactive way, not the dreary lecture that many might imagine. i-to-i have trained over 182,000 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.

Yes, you will get two short breaks and a lunch break on the Saturday, and one short break and a lunch break on the Sunday. In the small breaks you will get complimentary tea, coffee and water.
The hotel is in the middle of Chinatown with plenty of restaurants/sandwich shops around and it’s also only a couple of minutes’ walk from the Bullring shopping centre where there are also a large number of options.
No, we just advise that you wear something you are comfortable in and that you could imagine yourself wearing in a classroom situation.
I am very happy with the course. And i-to-i has been helpful.
Thank you, I-TO-I Team! That was a really amazing experience! I had the opportunity to check my knowledge, discover so much new information about teaching, new methodologies, secrets, tips, materials. I can advise this course to everyone, who wants to start teaching! You will be stunned when you find out how practical and handy the TEFL course is! Good luck, everyone! Many thanks, I-TO-I!
The course was great. Seeing and drilling the theory practically taught me a lot. Anny is an amazing teacher and I learned a lot from her. However, I feel that there might be better venues for the price we pay that would at least offer coffee on all the breaks and at least a snack to make the long days a little easier. There are also too many students in a class and students miss out on small corrections that a more one-on-one feeling would create with a smaller group. Over all the course provides value and the long days is worth the time spent. Thanks to all.
Wonderful course with many tips and references for all levels using various teaching methods, techniques and incentives.
It provides a strong foundation to go forwards with in TEFL.
It equipped me with the practical knowledge of what I have to do as an ESL teacher and how to in a simpler way
it was taught in such a way, that it was easy. You could see where you were going, could give yourself daily targets.
Everything. This course is the best, teaches you so much
I really enjoyed doing this course. It was very well set-up and has helped me tremendously on my way to become a good English teacher.
The course is very good and provides access to essential and interesting learning modules, however be prepared to truly commit. I work 60 hours a week and one day hope to move abroad and teach but not right now, because of my work concentration and motivation wasn’t always easy. All I’ll say is make sure you save/print every module where it says “print book” so you’ve always got the unit material to refer to when the course is complete. The practical element I feel should have come in later, it was fantastic but it was so long ago I’ve long forgotten most of it aside from my notes, which were thankfully extensive. There should also be an opportunity to either observe or carry out a lesson yourself and give/receive feedback.
