The TEFL course starts at 09:00 and finishes at 18:00, on both Saturday and Sunday.
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.
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.
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.
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.
i-to-i TEFL provides a very thorough look into the practicalities of preparing for and running an ESL classroom. As an online course, it does not offer a practical teaching session however there are so many useful links and extra pieces of information that you feel comfortable in your knowledge base before taking the plunge into teaching!
The course was well laid out and well presented, it was interesting and involving, the Tutor was well versed and very engaging, I really enjoyed it and would recommend the course and Tutor to anyone
I am a retired lady and found the course great, did find some areas a bit challenging but the support and help given from the i-to-i team is fantastic, they are a great team of people and their response time is staggering thank you xx
This is a very excellent company to work with and the customer service is the best! Prompt, efficient, and generous.
Having done a previous ESL course (but not completed) I found the i-to-i course far simpler yet more detailed and easy to approach. The regular tests in the various sections were excellent. The first one was a wake-up call that I needed to really study to know and understand the material! I would certainly recommend this course to anyone wanting to teach English.
I`d like to express my gratitude to i-to-i for such a great opportunity to study online! You`re professionals. Special thanks for your Advanced grammar Course, the trickiest grammar points were explained in simple words. Can`t wait to receive my online certificate! All the best, Olga.
Good evening. Just wanna thank you for the awsome course. The staff is very friendly and always willing to assist. Never met such friendly people on a phone, hehe. The lay-out off the course is perfect and user friendly. Where ever you go, you can just log in and continue where you last stopped. Thanks Gerhard
