Definitely a course worth taking.

Wooow i enjoyed the class sooo much.our tutor was amazing.am now so ready and prepared .this class was worth it.

I am really delighted and thankful for the course I took and for the people who worked on it (and are still working on it). I learned a lot thanks to i-to-i TEFL!

The course was brilliantly structure and the information I learned will be of enormous use to me when I start teaching. The instruction, by Paula Jenkins, was first-class. I'd highly recommend this course to others!

This course was extremely helpful in making me feel ready to teach English abroad. It had great ideas for lesson plans for all ages and levels. The content was well laid out and easy to follow. I also did the 20 hour classroom training which made sense of the online work I had been studying. Recommend fully.

I have just finished the 120 hours online course, and writing a good review wouldn't be enough to describe it. It is very practical and pragmatic. Best investment I have ever made. Thank you i-to-i.

The practical course was very informative. Prior to the practical I found it very hard to visualize what teaching would actually be like and feel like. So I was really nervous to go and teach, but the practical course put me at ease because it allowed me to understand what teaching would feel like. It helped me gain confidence and now I feel I understand more what teaching is about. It was also a great opportunity to receive feedback and corrections so I can improve how I teach - as well as meet other people who are keen to go and teach just as I am.

I enjoyed this course and found it very helpful, the lessons are presented in a clear manner and aren't unnecessarily complicated which makes note-taking easy. After completing the course I feel more confident in my ability to teach TEFL.

i have recently completed the 20 hour Classroom Training with i-to-i TEFL in Brisbane. It was a marvelous experience with the well versed Instructor taking the class through the step by step process to become successful in the classroom. Some theory with plenty of practice & lesson preparation and actual delivery of lesson. Simply great! 2 long days but worth it!! Thanks TEFL......Just Love TEFL!!

English Explained so simply !!! The course has a natural and effective flow , i would definitely recommend the 120 hour course!

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.
