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 thoroughly enjoyed taking my I to I 120 online course. It was well put together, totally organized and very attractive. Kudos for the academic and design depts. Also the 20 hr onsite classroom add-on was fantastic as well. Great instructor and students including me!!!

Fantastic....the course was easy to access and full of super video links. The tutors were easy to get hold of on the phone via friendly and helpful support staff and offered excellent advice . Many thanks for getting me started on my journey

I haven't engaged in the material yet, however I have purchased the course. Hats off to Byron from both Suraiya (a fellow TEFL student) and I for his speedy responses and patience with every question we had. I can't wait to finally begin this journey! I sure hope it takes my friend and I far... Great Service thus far. To the student advisors and academic assessors, I am a woman with many questions, my apologies in advance for the many many questions that I will ask, I look forward to working with you through this amazing journey!

I found this course to be manageable and easy to understand. There is clear and concise information. Having the self-help tests really made me feel secure and with a progress bar on the top of the page it helped me to structure my studying. I thought a lot would be explained through videos but i was grateful to be able to complete this course with very little data used. One last thing is i would like to congratulate them for the extensive 'extra reading; help for lesson preparation, grammar rules, different methodologies and much more. I did the 180 hour level 3 course and it was not so foreign. I can tell you that they want many graduates.

Awesome service from Kieran. Friendly and professional, explained everything in detail and efficiently answered all my questions. Great price as well

Before I enrolled for the course with TEFL I took the wrong advice and completed a course similar to the one of TEFL, but through a different institution. I applied for work all over the world but without any success. I did not even receive one reply from the different places where I applied. I then enrolled for a 200 hour combined course with TEFL. It was only yesterday when I received the news that I have passed my course. I immediately updated my CV. Even though I dont even have my certificate yet, interest was shown by two potential employers. This in less than 24 hours. Thank you TEFL and a special thank you to Emily John at TEFL.
