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.

Jaco Minnaar

The course specifically tailors to a TEFL teachers needs, detailed with all the necessary information, and the structure is easy to follow. I could measure my progress through the whole course. Whilst challenging at some stages, it is also very achievable. Thank you i-to-i team!

Simerpreet Kaur

Quick to revert. Very helpful. Information complete and good

Chiara

The agent who assisted me in searching for a job was so helpful! Not only did he check my CV and my cover letter to ensure they were adequate in my job search, but he also created a document for me that had a step by step guide on how to tackle the online teaching world, also including job listings and websites for me to start my journey. This was exactly what I needed as a South African passport holder, because the big world of teaching out there has lots of obstacles when it comes to not being a US/UK citizen. Thank you Jordan!

Cornie Van Der Merwe
