The course starts at 09:00am and finishes at 18:00 on both Saturday and Sunday. Ideally you should arrive at around 08:45 on both days, so that the tutor can start promptly.
Yes you do. On both days there is a lunch break. On Saturday there are two further short breaks in the morning and the afternoon, where tea and coffee will be available. On Sunday, there will also be a short break in the morning in addition to the lunch break.
The hotel has its own restaurant – the Garden Grill – for food on-site, but if you’d prefer to venture out for lunch, there are many options. McDonalds, Namaskar (serving Indian food) and Steers (a burger joint) are all a short walk away.
There is no dress code as such, but we would suggest dressing in a manner befits a classroom environment and is comfortable enough to enable you to take part in the group activities that are part of the course.
If you’re travelling to take the TEFL course from out of town, as well as the Garden Court where the course takes place, there are a number of alternatives nearby including Goodeys Guest House and Protea Hotel Hatfield – as the venue is close to Hartbeesspruit train station you do also have the option of staying in some of the many options near Pretoria Station as well and taking the train out to the course.
An all round good course that is packed full of excellent resources and ideas. The certificate from the 60 hour Business course will also add more value to my C.V. Thank you.
TEFL is very clear and there is no way for you to get confused in any part of the course.
This course is a very good one! Having completed the course, I feel motivated and very confident about teaching English, a topic that I had never considered teaching before. Additionally, previously I would have wanted to avoid teaching little children because I did not know how to maximize teaching content in their short attention spans. However, the advice and guidance given in this course have broadened my horizons as I now feel confident to teach any age group. Thank you i-to-1.com!
The subject matter was very informative and thorough. The assessments after each subsection was well structured and some were thought provoking. Challenging and quite intense but worth the effort and commitment.
Just completed a well structured 120Hr TEFL course. I did not log the time I was on-line, but do not believe it was anything like 120 hours. If the guide of hours include the time spent away from being log-on, then maybe a guide of 120 hours would be appropriate, but still generous. So don't expect to need to spend more than this time to complete the course. The overall time you have access to complete the course in more than adequate. So even with limited hours per week to dedicate to the course, you should still be able to complete, but there is a provision to extend your time if required. If you are able to dedicate larger time block then you benefit from being able to complete the course sections, and I found this helped me keep focus of the topic. The course is from a ODLQC Accredited Provider, and this is reflected by its contents and support. The support team has been exceptional. Prompt replies, detailed support, and from forward facing staff that excel at providing good customer service.
make me learn a lot and think a lot.
The lessons are made easy. The quizzes help in letting you know how well you're doing before the main test.
This course offers a great teaching framework and a lot of practical information
The course was very interesting because it made me look at English from a completely different perspective, which was from a foreign point of view. This meant we had to break the language down into the basic building blocks i.e. pronunciation, tone, spelling, vocabulary and tenses. This made me realise there was much more to the language than I thought there was. Furthermore, the course taught me a lot about the different learning styles and which are the most effective for certain students. Teaching English as a foreign language sure isn't easy; it requires a lot of planning and skill which is challenging, but this is what I look forward to most when beginning my teaching experience. Overall, this course has given me great insight into the world of English language and has helped me realise that I definitely want to do some teaching abroad as soon as possible!
WOW! What an amazing experience! I did the 120 Hour TEFL Course and couldn't be happier. The service from start to finish was unbelievably efficient. I already have my teaching degree and I truly feel that the course content covers all the basics for an aspiring teacher. The course itself was quick to work through with some challenging aspects but it wasn't to bad to do. The marking of my assessment took only a few hours, so I was really impressed. I would recommend this course to anyone.
