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-to-i TEFL course was recommended to me by lots of friends of mine and it indeed did not fail to be relevant, valid and to-the-point. Cheers!

Taking my TEFL Course from i-to-i benefited me a lot especially when I moved to Thailand to teach English. The online course was very concise and easy to navigate all through-out. I learned so much from i-to-i. Definitely worth your time and money.

i-to-i TEFL provided me with an informative course that I believe will set me up well for teaching English as a foreign language. Throughout the course, they provide additional information and resources that will be valuable throughout your education career. They structure the course to help you move through the important aspects of teaching so that you can enter the classroom prepared and confident. The format of the class was easy to understand. The tutors provide great feedback. I would highly recommend seeking a TEFL certificate from i-to-i TEFL!

The course is very good! It was very helpful to lay a good foundation for teaching English.

As a close to retirement FCCA, I have always wanted to teach and by doing this 120 hour TEFL course, I have been well equipped to embark on a teaching career in the near future. Thank you to Emma Burke, tutor, for her guidance.

It is a great platform for learning and very informative. I have enjoyed the course material and the fact that you test yourself as you go along.

Everyone very helpful. A lovely course and i found it very interesting. Thank you.

this course has given me great insight as how to give and prepare for a lesson on teach a one on one class and also a great course to prepare me for my future in teaching English in a foreign language.Thank you.

A first rate course. The tutors are always ready to provide helpful advice. My especial thanks go out to Jenni and Alexa for their help and invaluable assignment critique in their feedback. This will prove extremely useful in my future endeavours. My most sincere gratitude goes out to these ladies and to the i-to-I staff for their help and guidance.
