I completed the TEFL program in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica. The course itself is very demanding and time consuming BUT absolutely worth it! ! We had awesome instructors – Jackie and Claudia, who made every single day so fun and exciting! They always had our backs and never let us fail! The entire Maximo staff is so nice and helpful 🙂

Throughout the course you meet so many beautiful people, you connect with your students and you become a Team with your classmates because you share all these embarrassing but unforgettable moments of your first hours in the classroom together. If you want to do the TEFL program, I highly recommend you to do it in person – 1. You will never get this learning experience from the comfort of your home (it’s HUGE difference) 2. Traveling to another country and diving into absolutely different culture is such a valuable experience! Also Costa Rica is gorgeous! ^.^

Not knowing what to expect, I came to the course with an open mind. After all, I’m a native speaker of English, so how hard could it be to teach people how to speak English?

What I found out is: even if you are a native speaker, you still need to understand and know English grammar, forms, functions and numerous other specifics about the English language in order to properly teach. I also hadn’t realized that, with Maximo’s broad focus and teaching methodology, that I would learn to teach English to anyone in the world, regardless of their native language.

Jackie and Claudia were amazing teachers and they made the taxing curriculum fun and exciting. The course has you in front of students the first week and the pace doesn’t slow down. But it is worth every minute.

I highly recommend Maximo Nivel for TEFL and I wouldn’t trade the experience at Manuel Antonio for the world.

The TEFL Certification training program offered at Maximo Nivel’s campus in Manual Antonio, Costa Rica, is truly top-notch. Over the four weeks of intense academic study, our awesome teachers Jackie and Claudia were the ultimate A-team. Inside the classroom, they expertly delivered content with sincere enthusiasm, all the while role modeling the critical teaching techniques and keeping us engaged. Outside the classroom, they were incredible in helping us with lesson planning and effective delivery. They were always available, whether in person or via email, and exceptionally timely with responses as well as feedback. Additionally, the administrative staff and host family were incredibly supportive and helpful, easing the entire overseas living experience. I recommend the fully accredited, internationally recognized, Maximo Nivel TEFL Certification Training Program experience 100%.

Maximo Nivel, (and specifically Karen Wilke, Jackie Bria and Karen-Cita) were the main components of turning a very challenging course into a motivating, heartening and inspirational time while getting my Teaching Certificate. Thank you Maiximo for helping to make my goals/dreams come true!!!!!
