FAQs

FAQs

What time does the course begin?

The TEFL course starts at 09:00 and finishes at 18:00, on both Saturday and Sunday.

What should I do when I arrive at the hotel?

You should take the elevator to the 6th floor where the main lobby is. This is also the same floor where the meeting space is located where the course takes place.

How many breaks do we get?

You will get three breaks during the course on the Saturday – one in the morning and afternoon and one for lunch and you will get two breaks on the Sunday – one in the morning and one for lunch.

What can I do for lunch?

Bella Bacinos is famed for its amazing pizza; but if for any reason you don’t want to give it a try, that’s not a problem as there are a number of eateries right on your doorstep! Starbucks, McDonald’s and 7-11 are all a block away from the venue; and there are many sit-down restaurants too, like the Emerald Loop Bar and Grill, just a two minute walk from the venue.

Is there a dress code?

There is not really a dress code, although we advise you to wear something which you could imagine wearing in a classroom situation – something like jeans and trainers will be fine.

Impressed with the level of communication so far. Good advice regarding how to chose the appropriate course for my particular needs.

The courses I completed were well structured and the subject matter entirely manageable in rational and logical components. I find the online support to be efficient and helpful. Well done and thank you i-to-i. Recommended indeed!

My experience with i-to-i TEFL has been great! I learned so much on how to become a competent English teacher and improve my teaching skills overall. i-to-i TEFL has excellent courses and great customer service. Thank you and I hope to stay in touch with the company as I enter the workplace and move forward.

Hello there. I'm from South Africa, i personally had fun studying with tefl it was an amazing course and the tefl tutors are very welcoming.

This was a very informative and interesting course which provides everything for the student to start a career as an English teacher. The course material is challenging but doable, and I highly recommend it.

i-to-i TEFL has been such an amazing experience for me... Their service is friendly, useful and very informative and easy to access. I am very impressed and would highly recommend this to anyone out there who would like to start their career online or even abroad, no matter what your age is.

My first point of contact was Jessica Jackson. Her prompt response and positive upbeat attitude immediately made me feel as though I was making the right choices. No question was too small for her to pay attention to. Michael made a follow up call. As soon as I had paid, I was ready to rock n roll. So far the journey has been great.

Set things very well

This is a customer service review. Not a product review. Tom Stephenson served me on my initial call. I specifically requested him for my follow up call, in which he made the sale. Tom: - was well articulated in speech and communicated professionally and efficiently. - has exceptional product knowledge. - was friendly and amicable throughout our conversations. - frankly, sold the product well. He was a perfect sales representative and his efforts should be recognised. Should the product be as described by him, I shall be a happy little boy.

I have only just downloaded all the resources and they look very good. I have taken a classroom TEFL but as I teach solely online this has been a real find which I am looking forward to starting. It was good to find a company with an office in my country which made my mind up. I have been ill and out of the loop for over 3 years and I think this will be a good place to start again from where I am now. Onwards and upwards.
