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.

Did 120 hours course. Easy-to-use platform, comprehensive and well-structured content, prompt feedback from tutor, very friendly customer service. I really enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn how to plan and structure a lesson

Professional and efficient service. Thorough and supportive throughout the process of completing the qualification. Prompt with communication. Access to up-to-date resources.

Jeremy Tindall

I found the course very well structured and the material, videos, quizzes and reading matter of a high standard. Feed back from tutors was timeous and constructive. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Claire Cowburn

I really enjoyed completing my TEFL course with i-to-i TEFL. Once I got past the first couple of units and understood the layout and content of the course I could see how well structured it is. I did this course to learn new skills and open myself up to more opportunities, but honestly this has actually helped me in my current job role too. I would recommend this course to anyone thinking about teaching English as a foreign language.

Chad Engelbrecht

I want to thank Sam Shipley. The prompt and professional assistance I received from him could only be described as refreshing, he helped me to find a course package that was suited to my ideal working environment and I am grateful to him. Thanks you Sam. Chad Evan Engelbrecht.

I considered many TEFL courses before deciding on this one, and I'm glad I did! I'm still busy with it but so far so good. The consultant that helped me was Sam, he handled the whole process very professionally from start to finish. So far, every point of contact has been excellent!

Sam was a great help. He gave me a call and told me everything that I needed to know with regards to the course. He answered all my questions and was polite through the entire process. He was such an excellent advisor, I even convinced my sisters to join after the phone call.
