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.

Wow this is a great course. Once i got started i could not stop. I completed my cource way before the expiry. The content is very useful and gave me the confidence to be a great English teacher. Thank i will surely recommend this cource to others.

The course was very effective and straight to the point. Especially the practical weekend in combination with the 120 hour course was very useful. This course definitely helps when you want to teach English in a foreign country.

I would rate this course a 5 stars. It is definitely an enlightening, fun and wonderfully structured course. It creates an easy learning environment right from your own home :) I would suggest it anyone who is thinking about pursuing it as a starting point of your career.

Brilliant course...kept me engaged every minute!the very best tutors and material.....ready for my China adventure.....you guys deserve six stars, thank you!!!!!

I feel totally prepared to step into the classroom as an ESL teacher after completing the I to I 120 Hour Online Tefl course. The different learning modules were all explained clearly, and the grammar and phonics sections (which I was the most nervous about struggling with) were set out in a way which made them really easy to understand. I enjoyed the quizzes and videos as they really brought what was being taught to life. Thanks I to I!

1.Teaching English can either be a wonderful way to spend a year or two living overseas or a fascinating career – 2.It’s really up to you – and our courses are designed to introduce you to many of the core concepts and skills that you’ll need to start this journey.

Now that I are TEFL qualified, I feel like the more great opporunities openning up for me!!! Thank you for being such a responsive, professional and trustworthy team!

I love how it provides practical examples as well through the videos. It doesn’t just focus on the theory side but also the practicality of it.

I really enjoyed the course and I felt that it covered all the aspects required.

The best form of learning I have experienced and I'm not at all fond of learning so this definitely a mind changer.
