Sheffield’s train station is a short 12 minute walk away. You can also catch the Peak Line Bus Service (No. 218) from outside Howard Hotel just by the train station and alight at Furnival Square.
As the hotel is within university grounds, there are several places to get some food. Matilda Street is a good place to explore, as there’s the Fresh Choice Noodlebar, a chicken bar and Brenda’s Fish & Chips just off Matilda Street on Earl Way. Alternatively, some TEFL students prefer bringing a packed lunch as picnicking with coursemates is always a nice activity.
Definitely yourself and an open mind. Pen and paper are also good for note taking. Workbooks and course material is provided by the TEFL tutor, so no need to worry about that. In the short breaks, there will be complimentary tea and coffee. Some students like to bring a water bottle for in-between breaks.
Keep calm and carry on. Being late can happen to any of us. Give the reception of the venue a call and ask them to let your TEFL tutor know. Once you arrive, ask the team at reception to show you where the rest of the group is and then get started becoming a qualified TEFL teacher.
What an amazing team of very professional people! The online course content is great! i-to-i TEFL has equipped me with knowledge and confidence. I am really looking forward to my new career as a TEFL Teacher!
They are professional and respond to queries and admin problems immediately. The trainer was really great. I learned a lot. The course content was motivational and the lessons were relaxed and cheerful. Thank you.
Loved It! Simple to use interface and great content.
Fun, informative and very rewarding - I now feel ready to take on the challenge of TEFL with confidence!
When I just started the course I was scared of teaching, I don't have such experience at all, and I didn't want to make anything wrong. But now, after I finished the course, I feel really confident and well prepared for teaching, I have lots of materials to use in the classroom, I know how to make my lesson interesting, I've learnt a lot with this course. Thank you so much!
The course is very comprehensive, gives excellent advice on use of different materials and helps the teacher assist individual students with different problems, even though they may be in a class of uniform level.
Practical, great and valuable information provided
I'm just really excited. I can't describe my happiness right now!
Excellent material. Very straightforward. I enjoyed the pace of the course as well.
I bought this course after I had a moment of clarity. Having worked in several jobs in varying shades of soul crushing, I decided it was high time I make a change and do what I enjoy with my life. After all, I've only got one. After considering my strengths (Working with children, explaining concepts, and learning languages, to name a few pertinent ones) I decided to look into TEFL. I did some searching and reading up, and finally found i-to-i. This course was everything I was looking for. I began to learn about the ins and outs of teaching a class and re-learning concepts of English I'd long forgotten the names of. When I began, I had interest. When I finished, I had assurance. This is what I want to do, and I am capable and prepared to do it. The course work is set up in such a way that you can set the pace you need to go at. Each concept is explained in a simple but in depth way and is accompanied by video references and quizzes. Each lesson has additional articles and resources at the end if you want to know more about the subject of each module. Along the way, I got nice messages from the i-to-i team telling me to keep up the good work. After turning in my final assignments, I was met with a very kind message of congratulations. Though I know these are probably sent automatically, it was still a very big reassurance to me to always be given positive reinforcement and constant offers of assistance. Some will call this course boring. The reality is that it is demanding. Not in a "take up all your time and energy" way, but in a mental way. You are called upon to really commit yourself to studying the course content, which can be difficult if you are uncertain about your choice to pursue a career in TEFL. There are plenty of ways to talk yourself out of studying, but there is only one way to succeed: Don't quit. i-to-i, thank you so much for this excellent course! I have enjoyed immensely and plan to take additional specialized courses to expand my skill set! Keep up the great work!
