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.

An excellent course with abundance of learning information for teaching. Consultants are eager and always willing to assist in anyway they can and for that I thank you humbly.

loved this course it was a lot of reading, would like more vidios

The course is wonderfully set out. Everything was done in excellence. Great service whenever I needed help and very clearly set out. Absolutely user-friendly. It was a great experience studying the 300 hour course.

I just made the payment today,though I 've not gotten the login details. I must say that I am lucky to have Michael Wolfe as my advisor. He has been an exceptional and outstanding person.His customer service has been next to none. I work in a service industry and I can distinguish between bad service and good service. At a point when I didn't want to continue,cos of some issues with my country not being on the list of countries on the drop down and other issues,he stood with me and ensured that all those issues were sorted out in gòod time. I am giving him a 5 Star rating.If I could give him more than a 5 Star,I would!!!! I am looking forward to having an exciting time here.

they have exceptional guidance throughout the course.

I purchased the level 5 200 hour course. I was very impressed with the lessons in the units as well as the material and sources given. The tutors were extremely helpful and swift in their replies and feedback. The 2 day weekend course was especially informative. Overall great experience with i-to-i.

I can strongly recommend this course to anyone!

The course was very well laid out and made studying after work very manageable. I enjoyed the assignments and constructive feedback and really felt the practical teaching weekend brought to life everything I had studied.

Great course !

Effective student centred approach, very useful tips/ideas/material are provided, maintaining a strong focus throughout the course on how to putting the acquired methods/techniques/theories into practice
