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- to- tefl given me an oppurtunity to learn and to work abroad. Now, i can travel the SE ASIAN country to teach English. Thank you TEFL. more power.! :)
It was a great course that helped me figure out what I wanted to do.
I have been training working adults in South Africa for many years, so it is exciting to now have additional skills that will enable me to teach anywhere in the world. New horizons, indeed!
It is a good course. Just got a job in China.
The ease of access to the learning materials.
The course was very clear and it laid out the modules in a way that you would instantly understand. The amount of things you could learn in such a small amount of time is amazing.
I enjoyed the weekend practical course and it helped me to remember the theory. My lecturer was very good. I was very impressed with her feedback. Thank you so much Francessca.
The content is excellent and well presented. It's not too vague on information but it also doesn't drone on for ages each page meaning the learner stays more engaged. TEFL made me happy because it taught me enough to help me pass and now I can work in this area! Thank you!
It is an eye opener for someone who is coming from traditional teaching
