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.

All the courses were excellent and I would not change it. The modules covered all aspects of teaching and was very informative.

The course was well structured and the content ensured that I progressed in my learning. I feel empowered and confident to embark on my career as a Tefl teacher. The course advisors, tutors and academic support were supportive and very helpful. I feel proud to be an i-to- TEFL graduate.

Dear Team, I have twice used the customer live chat service and received super prompt and helpful feedback. I am 95% on my way to completing my current course and needed some assistance this week - Victoria was extremely prompt and helpful this last time when I checked in and am so very grateful for the consideration she was able to give me. I was feeling anxious about this last stretch in completing my course and she was able to give me peace of mind. Kindly share my thanks and gratitude... Thank you so much, I have enjoyed this course and am super excited to start teaching! best wishes to your Team! Tasha St John-Reid

I really enjoyed the course: I found it well-planned, stimulating and challenging! I liked the clips of real-life teaching situations and the copious and varied information in the sections for Further Reading. I did not pass any of my assignments first time, which I think is good: I respect that TEFL maintain their standards and did not let me off the hook until I had properly understood the tasks and completed them. Many thanks!

They are very understanding and accomadating I definitely made a good choice by studying through i-i TEFL . My journey through this platform and been excellent so far.

I was very pleased when I received a call from Gemma. She was so polite, professional and extremely helpful. I am glad such a great team will look after me on my TEFL journey.

Great follow-up service. I qualified in 2009 but have become separated from my certificate which I now need. A quick message on chat and a digital copy was sent to me via email. I've had no problem having this cert recognised and have been impressed by i-to-i from initial enquiry in 2009, through the course and the after care.
