As the venue is very central to Cardiff’s city centre there are plenty of places to go for lunch nearby. Some options include the Pettigrew Tea Rooms off Castle Street or The Potted Pig, a modern British cuisine restaurant a short walk away on High Street. Some students prefer to bring their own packed lunch, which is also an option and with the castle grounds nearby, there are some lovely picnic options, too.
Cardiff Central rail station is the closest public transport in walking distance, as it’s only a 10 minute walk to the venue. You can also walk to Westgate Street and catch a bus heading to Cardiff Castle from there.
TEFL Courses in Cardiff all start at 9:00am and we recommend arriving 15-20 minutes earlier to give you time to meet your coursemates and find the room in the venue stress-free. Do ask at reception for help finding the room.
Don’t panic. Being late can happen to anyone, so no need to worry. Do be sure to call reception and let them know. They’ll then pass the message on to the TEFL tutor.
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.
