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 loved your teaching techniques for teaching us everything. I have learned a lot and I also had a great time learning how to be a great teacher. Im very pleased with the whole course!

The i-to-i team is very helpful and supportive. Keep up the good job!!

itoi has a prompt service and i should say every consultant i dealt with had high ethical standards and i felt at home. Looking forward to getting a job and learn more in the industry.

i-to-I TEFL has been very efficient with all their services. I have had fast responses from them, and I am glad to have chosen them. Thank you!

The course was very detailed and clear with explanations, giving examples and further reading if you were struggling with a specific aspect. The site was very easy to use and the quizzes are very helpful to check your progress. I would highly recommend!

i-to-i TEFL is a very thorough course that I have completed alongside beginning work as an EFL teacher. I have found that the course is highly relevant to many of the situations that I have encountered and has also helped to prepare me for possible future scenarios.

They have been very helpful in explaining everything.

I absolutely enjoyed doing the 120 hour online course with i-to-i and would strongly recommend it to everyone! I found the course material easy to read and understand. It was well presented with good explanations and graphs. The further reading material and video clips also helped a great deal. I cannot wait to start my next course with i-to-i.

I enjoyed my 120-hour course and would recommend it to others. It was interesting and comprehensive, and there were frequent quizzes to check progress. It gives you the knowledge you need to start teaching confidently. The company is responsive, professional and friendly.

A very professional organisation , solid coursework material , great support from customer care and tutors alike !!
