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 learned so much and I had so much fun while doing the TEFL Course (including the practical). It is easy to learn and the feedback is quick. I would recommend the any TEFL Course to anyone interested in teaching.

The i-to-i TEFL courses are well organised and user-friendly. I highly recommend their courses.

Amazing course I have learnt so much ! prompt and supportive tutors money well spent. Now the journey begins

A big THANK YOU to Kieran Ruane for excellent customer service! I was in need of some additional info and was provided with a step-by-step explanation of everything I needed to know and more! I'm very pleased with the process so far and can not wait to get on board!

A big THANK YOU for excellent customer service (Kieran Ruane)! I was in need of some additional information, phoned customer service and was provided with a step-by-step explanation of everything I needed to know and more. Very happy with the process so far and super excited to get on board!

The course is very well set up and explained. The price itself is extremely fair, especially considering the fact that the course is setup so well Additionally, the customer service provided is really great. The manner in which you are spoken to and given an explanation of proceedings makes the process much better and easier.

what an amazing experience to learn how to teach others. the customer support team was always ready to answer my questions.

The course was very clear and well explained. I've learnt a lot from taking it!

Very fun course and cant wait to start teaching around the world. The course is not that hard but still engaging. Made me realize that my current job profession might not be what I really wanted :D

I found the 20 hour practical course really useful and I thought it was taught it in a really engaging way. It was far better than I was expecting to be honest, as I’ve come away from it feeling excited/more confident to teach and it was really great to meet everyone else on the course. Would recommend it for anyone who hasn’t done much or any teaching before. Big thanks to Emily who was running it!
