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.

After researching different TEFL courses I decided to go with i-to-i, because of it's positive online reviews. I am pleased that I chose i-to-i TEFL course.
