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.

Generally speaking the course is a great one. My only regret is not having known of you and done the course a long time ago.

The two days where a lot of fun and we all learned loads. We made loads of new friends and the instructor was brilliant. Highly recommended.

This course was structured well and easy to follow with lots of valuable activities to test knowledge.

Really enjoy the support and the expansive amount of information not only for learning but for additional information. The videos are one of the biggest pluses to see the techniques in live practice! Looking forward to my Thailand volunteer experience next!

Best course and internship that I have ever done.I am looking forward to learn more with i-toi.

Very good course ! I really enjoyed it ! Highly recommend to everyone :)

Overall, the course has done what its promised to do. Its given me some pretty standard information on beginning an adventure as an English teacher and I do feel more prepared for that task now. I've seen some bad reviews but I honestly can't see why. I didn't pay for express marking but I received my grade the same day I submitted my lesson plan, I also received feedback on it and was informed that I had passed the course. I just checked my email and I see that my e-certificate is also ready! Overall, I'm pleased with my experience and excited to see where this adventure takes me!

I have learnt a lot from TEFL , i am currently still busy with the 180 hour course which provides a lot of insight and makes it easy on you once you get to start teaching. The course is a bit tricky though, i am hoping the final test is not going to beat me. Overall TEFL is great.

I purchased a 300 hours course. I have completed some sections and I am super happy with the course. The tutors are extremely helpful and have been able to assist with any query I have put forward (not to mention putting my mind at ease). The content is superb! I even find it useful when teaching regular classes!

Lisa, our trainer was AMAZING ! She was friendly, active, approachable and full of life, never a dull moment during the two days of training & practice. One of the best training i have attended in many years.
