How to find us in Portland

How to find us in Portland

Course Location

Portland English Language Academy (PELA)
2007 Lloyd Center
United States

How to get there

Situated in the Lloyd Center it is easily accessible by car or public transport with a dedicated MAX stop for the Lloyd Center. There are also a number of bus stops within a block of the venue for those travelling from other parts of the city or surrounding area.


What time do I need to be at the venue?

The course will start at 09:00 both days but to give yourself plenty of time we’d recommend getting to the venue 15-20 minutes beforehand. This way you’ve got time to grab yourself a drink, find the room and meet the other students.

Is there a dress code for the course?

Not at all! All we ask is that you come dressed in something comfortable that you’re able to move about in. If you want to wear what you’d wear in the classroom that’s fine too, it’s up to you.

Is there somewhere close by for lunch?

The venue is in the heart of Portland’s Lloyd District so there’s loads of choice for lunch. Whether you want a quick sandwich or something a bit more substantial, you’ll find something within 5 minutes’ walk of the venue.

This course was very useful. I`ve already had some teaching experience and knowledge and 180h course helped me to organize my ideas and I`ve found a lot of useful information as well. I want to thank Justina Kirveleviciute for promptly answering all my questions and Peter Bowdery for assessing my assignments. I recommend i-to-i TEFL for future English teachers.

Natalie Kerr

Very responsive to emails and extremely thorough explaining the process and how to set up my account details correctly. I was extremely happy with their support they gave me, while also taking the initiative to ensure my questions were answered. I will be very happy to do business with them again in the near future. Thank you for all of your help and your support through my adventure. I highly recommend their services to anyone who is looking to take the TEFL program.

Haarsha Balrajh

Studying with i-to-i fitted into my various circumstances since registering for the course, in 2020. There were various times where I came close to my course expiring and I was helped with efficiency and understanding. My assignments were marked with informative feedback, and efficiency. Once I completed my Level 5 180 hour certification, I was given help and tips on how to improve my CV, my introductory video and given links to apply for work. I would recommend i-to-i to anyone who wishes to take a TEFL course.

Bronwyn Pretorius

The support team especially Sahm has been a great help when it comes to understanding and explaining assignments.

Jean Lombard

Thank you for your prompt response. Much appreciated.

Emmerentia Meintjes

I would highly recommend i-to-i, as they are passionate about their work and in their students. They reach out to you and do their utmost best so that you could get qualified. They really know what customer service and support is! Great job. Keep it up!

Madalov Navruz

TEFL course is the best way to be international teacher. Assignments are clear and simple. Many thanks to all tutors for their hard works.


I believe service is a key roll in any professional business, as the consultant hit the key and implemented her the roll perfectly. With delivering in depth information, with the request from myself about different courses, which is available, that one can apply for. Thank you kindly for the assistance and information.


Goed opgezette cursus, veel extra info. Na deze training ben je zelfverzekerd genoeg om les te gaan geven! Het is wel van belang dat je er voldoende tijd in investeert


i-to-i TEFL were extremely efficient and reliable. I often received feedback for my assignments within 2-3 days, and the feedback was thorough and very encouraging. The coursework itself was manageable, and the extra-reading resources they provided will enable me to continue learning for so much longer than just this course. Hopefully throughout my TEFL experience. :)


Very supportive and helpful . Always friendly.

Nelson Ntlhabo

Their customer has been excellent so far. The process of stopping my course temporarily was a breeze, for example.

June Labuschagne

I am so impressed with i-to-i Tefl, from the customer service division to the academic department! Thank you for a very professionally run business. I have so enjoyed the 180 hour course and look forward to continuing with the next section. Thank you once again to each and every one of you!!


Justina was extremely helpful, and went above and beyond in supporting me. I was very pleasantly surprised with the solution she was able to provide to my challenge.


the response was good. The assistance was amazing. The support structure is really one to appraise. thanks for all the guidance.

Gabriela Coelho

I have never been exposed to having to teach a class but working through the TEFL Level 5 180h course made things very simple and easy to work through and left me feeling confident enough to walk into a class and take over !


Really great learning experience. Love the course structure.

Henk Pepler

I found the customer service and support from i-to-i to be really good. The course layout and content is also of a high standard. I would definitely recommend them to anyone that want to start their TEFL career.


very supportive and caring. A big thanks to Emily John and Jeanette Corbett


I recently completed an intensive online course with i-to-i TEFL and I cannot recommend these guys highly enough! The course itself was both incredibly practical and thought provoking with a variety of relevant activities, addressing all learning styles. It was also well laid out, making it super easy to navigate. The vast range of courses on offer are competitively priced and I'm already eyeing up my next one!


Nikki was a fantastic help in organising our TEFL signup and so lovely. 10/10!


The amount of help I've been receiving from Emily John is amazing, she's patient and understanding. I couldn't have chosen a better place to do my course. A job very well done.


Jordan helped amend my resume/cover letter for TEFL teaching roles. The feedback was incredibly helpful in a 'new' sector and was able to get my CV/cover letter to a good standard to be able to send out to potential employers. It really helped having someone who was patient and knowledgable look over everything!


I not started yet .. But what my friend told me is the same I am hearing in this review


Jordon williams Thank you so much for your assistants, it was great help


I had a very great experience with my course and with the assistance and customer support. I didn't have any issues, once or twice the reply was a bit short but the rest was a fast reply. I would highly highly recommend doing a course with i-to-i. Thanks!!

Loraine Symington

I had a great experience studying i-to-i's 420 Hour Diploma, I only have my IELTS course left. I had amazing feedback from Jordon, at the job seeker support team. The feedback was time was excellent, having my questions answered within 24 hours even on weekends. I now feel confident in applying with my CV to prospective employers.


I am enjoying this course ,it is very informative and challenging. Thank you for the advice and prompt response from the support team.


I have completed many courses at I-to-I TEFL and they always provide useful feedback quickly. Their courses are top quality, reasonably priced and I find the staff extremely helpful. Thanks to Emily John for the awesome service.

Pamela Molenaar

I achieved a Gold TEFL/TESOL certificate from the TEFL Organization earlier this year but it was no where near as comprehensive as i-to-TEFL.. I would highly recommend paying a little more and applying to i-to-i TEFL. The support you get and online training is awesome.


The academic team was of immense help and helped me to complete the assignment successfully.Many thanks to Ms.Emily for her quick response and guidance at every step...

Victoria Shoesmith

Phoned Leah about extending my course - she was so friendly and helpful! Great service 😁
