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.

It is a very informative course, and after years of not studying, i felt like i could complete this and finally get into the career ive wanted to work in, and not have to go back to a job after maternity leave that wouldnt fit around my family lifestyle !!

I feel this short but intense course covered enough basic and went into a little detail with other details and is going to be a great base for me as a teacher to carry on learning and teaching well.

I really enjoyed this course and was quite surprised that it didn't bore me at all. The information, advice and extra resources provided were super useful. Well done to the creators of this course, everything was very well thought out.

The essential knowledge and foundations that I needed in order to teach English properly are all in their online course. It equips you as you embark a career in EFL teaching.

Whenever I needed assistance they were there and they replied efficiently. They are friendly. There is no classroom pressure,one works at their own pace and if you unclear about something you can go back to the course. You work freely and the course is not in any way difficult in terms of langauage and understanding. I enjoyed the course and have even told my friends about it. Thank you i-to-i.

The content is very well structured and ensures a smooth learning process, efficiently combining theory with practice.

I learned a lot

i-to-i have comprehensive learning content and prepare you for the teaching world by providing additional resources. I feel excited about the prospect of TEFL and confident in my abilities and knowledge

IT IS LEARNING ME A LOT AND LETTING ME UNDERSTAND THAT ENGLISH IS A VERY IMPORTANT LANGUAGE AND NO MATTER HOW WELL YOU CAN SPEAK IT TO TEACH IT NOW THAT IS A DIFFERENT STORY. AND I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO LEARN MORE SO I WOULD BE ABLE TO TEACH YOUNG LEARNERS THE AMAZING ABILITY TO COMMUNICATE WITH THE WORLD.

i-to-i TEFL is a well structured course that thoroughly explores every aspect of teaching English. The thought of doing an online course was intimidating for me, but i-to-i TEFL is so user friendly, I had no problems. I felt so accomplished after every quiz. The course content is of high quality and stimulating.
