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.

I had an excellent clarification chat with Gemma James. She was so helpful and she clarified and answered all my questions. She was very friendly and I was able to understand everything. I had an excellent service👌🏾

I always had GREAT service during my course, and now, ten years after I completed it, Amy Rich from Customer Support has delighted with a prompt, effective reply to my enquiry, despite the fact that I couldn't even tel her in which year I did my course.

I am very impressed with the excellent service I received from i-to-i TEFL's Danny Taylor. Phoning and emailing me promptly and answering all my questions professionally.

I just received the information I needed, to complete part of the course, from Emily. It is really great to know that you are available to help clarify information when it is needed.

I would like to give a big thank you to Sahm (not Sam!) for all his help, advise, assistance and support. I passed my first tefl qualification in 2008 with i-to-i TEFL and have been very happy teaching and working in Spain. I decided to do the level 5 course and I could not have passed without Sahm's help. The problem I had was with the attachments of the realia and he helped to resolve the issues. Once again thank you Sahm (not sam)
