i-to-i TEFL review, submitted by Jeremy.
Quite a bit of the information is repetitive and video tutorials are missing. You read information and take tests afterward. I could see how the course is a little dated. Could do with an update! Don’t even bother trying to contact i-to-i when you need something because they never answer emails. The hardcopy version of the certificate isn’t free and when you do pay for it it takes quite a while for the delivery to take place. Well, that’s the bad stuff out of the way. Now for the good stuff…
It does the job of getting you through the T-E-F-L and at the end of it you receive a certificate. If you want to teach English you will need the certification. I was asked in interviews if I had the T-E-F-L and when I told them I took the i-to-i it wasn’t a problem for them. Meaning the certificate is recognized by employers. The price of the course was reasonable for what you get.
I did try teaching English online but I didn’t like it much. You don’t have the same student interaction as you do with an in-person class and I soon discovered that students are often not 100% focused on the lesson when they have email, Facebook, and other apps open when taking the lesson. This is a real problem when teaching English online. Classroom management just isn’t easy.
I’ve been accepted for a teaching job in Seoul South Korea which starts in January 2021. The job was advertised online so I didn’t need to use the placement service. I’m being started on a great salary and the job includes housing, health insurance, and paid vacation time. I’m looking forward to putting into action the materials I went through in the i-to-i course. I think they will be useful in those first few months when I’m still finding my footing in the classroom.
