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.

Really enjoyed this course! The practical element I enjoyed the best as it gives you that first hand experience, I really found the level and quality in both the written and practical parts very engaging and motivating!

Gary Bolton

This has been such a pleasure to do and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. To know that I have a professional team available if I require any assistance is very reassuring. The time allocation has been perfect and this course can be done properly without the stress of rushing it. The feedback is quick and to the point. Thank you i-to-i this has been such a wonderful experience.

Charlotte

The course was so easy to follow and I think it is really good that you can't move on to each unit until you have completed the one before. It has made me feel much more confident about teaching English in the future, especially with all the support given to help you locate a job!

I had some questions about my course extension. First, I called and Beth was very helpful in clarifying some details for me. Later, I had an additional question and used the chat feature where Victoria was able to give me an answer. Thank you both for the quick and helpful responses!

I had an amazing experience with the Job seekers team. Jordan Williams is amazing at his work! Jordan has given me all the advice I could possibly need to apply for jobs as a new TEFL teacher. I love the fact that they want to stay in contact and hear about their customers' success and their TEFL journey's.
