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’m a an Education degree holder, learnt sooo much during this course. I was able to use the knowledge from this course into my normal teaching job also as I am teaching English already. Thank you i to i ❤️❤️❤️❤️
I am so inlove with this couses just the best thing that could ever happen. I would recommend this to anyone who has a teaching heart
It was hard work juggling a full time job and the course. But you need to do what you need to do and it paid off. I enjoyed the course and the must say I learnt a lot.
I am a proud i-to-i TEFL graduate, owing to an exceptional and professional team of academic Tutors, advisors, and customer service representatives that gave excellent support, guidance, and feedback. I would strongly recommend i-to-i TEFL to anyone interested in studying to teach English overseas or online.
Just completed my third assignment. The course has been amazing so far, I am learning a lot and the tutors provide very helpful feedback on assignments. I am glad I chose i-to-i TEFL to get certified. Excited to continue learning!
Proudly i-to-i TEFL Graduate, I confidently recommend i-to-i for Teaching English Foreign Language as the Institution of choice. even with some ups and downs with 1 or 2 Assignments I received support, understanding and guidance from Assessor's, Tutor's and Director's. Many, many thanks again and kindest personal regards. Looking forward to getting in touch to see how I can start the next step in my journey to be the best from the best in my teaching career.
The learning material is thorough and ensures you are able to work through it progressively building on prior knowledge. The evaluations are fairly challenging so you are sure that you are being tested comprehensively and that when you pass you have a good understanding of the work
I have loved every second of the 180 hour course. It has been incredibly insightful and I have learnt so much with regards to teaching and the English language as a whole. The tutors are absolutely fantastic. They mark your work very quickly and provide constructive criticism and excellent feedback. I would recommend this course to any and everyone looking to start a career in teaching English as a foreign language. I am looking forward to journeying through my remaining courses.
I am loving this course. It looked daunting, but it is structured well and easy to follow. Turns out I have a knack for this. I really enjoying drawing up the lesson plans and loved the 3 assignment so far. Just finished my 180 hours course and on to the One-on-One and Business English course. Can't wait to start working. I am super excited for this next chapter in life.
I to I courses it’s not something that you can play with, I was somewhere in one of the college I did the same course I do at I to I campus in one month I was done but I can bet with my hand to cut it off you can’t do 520hours course at I to I campus in one year. I have seen many students who can finish their work and pass in short time but they can’t do what they study to support their lives. The lesson plans I did was hard for me but I did it by my self and I am sure if my teacher give it to me again I can do it again and again. I to I courses are real and heaven I really feel my head is carrying something 😂😂😂😂
Excellent communication and great help
I battled to access my course as I was not sure how to navigate the site. Matthew advised a representative from customer services would be in touch. Within minutes I received a phone call from Leah (bear in mind I am based in South Africa!) Leah advised me on where to access as well as sending me a how-to guide on mail. Excellent service all round, thank you and regards.
A very carefully and thoughtfully prepared course. Thank you so much!
Greetings Leah Burke Where do I start? I am totally in awe from the very first time we connected. You are efficient, friendly, knowledgeable and approachable. I know there are many different offers for these courses out there and quite frankly, I was confused until I dealt with you guys. Thank you for confirming by your service that I made the right choice. God bless. I wish you well. Julie Bosman
Victoria Sharratt was a very kind lady, gave information to the point and informed and emailed me immediately so I could understand what the exact procedure would be.
I received the best service from the day I inquired about the course until the my last assignment. They check on your progress and promptly attend to queries. The Cherry on top was the practical course in Johannesburg. It made all the difference and helped me complete my assignments. Highly recommended!

I am very happy with the TEFL staff, especially the customer support, and academic staff, especially Catherine and Emily, who have been very helpful, towards me as a blind student, and making accommodations where possible. I will intern give them a full report on where I think the course could be made more accessible for screen reader users, although 99% of the course is very accessible
