Partaking in this TEFL program was a great decision. It is only a month long but full of learning and practice at being a teacher. The instructor, Sean, is great and very helpful. The practical teaching week may seem daunting but they prepared me for it and it went great. All of this is in Cusco, Peru which is a beautiful city in a beautiful country. The people here are very friendly, there are lots to do and it is very safe. I recommend Cusco to anyone interested in doing a TEFL program.

My time in Peru was amazing! I completed the TEFL course and taught native Spanish speakers. On the weekends, I was able to explore Peru and visit the magnificent places it has to offer. I highly recommend this program and visiting the beautiful city of Cusco!

I am extremely please with the education and experience I gained while getting my TEFL certification from Wayne Summerbell and Maximo-Nivel. The four-week course teaches future ESL instructors to teach English through a methods that do not require the English teacher to use or know the native language of the students. As often as possible these techniques are used on the TEFL students themselves, giving them a double dose of the techniques they will be using to teach real English classes during the final week of their course.

The effectiveness Maximo Nivel’s curriculum was hugely amplified for me by the particular teacher I had. Wayne Summerbell is an extremely effective and engaging teacher who helped me find my strengths and address my weaknesses with pinpoint accuracy. He was available for lots of feedback and clarification so that my teaching abilities could keep up with the course’s accelerating workload and responsibilities. Wayne Summerbell made a real difference in my journey to becoming an independent teacher of English as a foreign language.

Máximo Nivel is an incredible school. I learned so much. It was rigorous and fun at the same time. The TEFL instructor, Wayne Summerbell, was amazing! I felt he gave personal attention and excellent feedback during practical teaching week! Highly recommend!

This program is helpful for anyone looking for ways to dig deeper into the English language and share their knowledge with a global community through teaching. The TEFL/TESOL program is accessible to all, yet challenging – the teachers are supportive and you leave the program feeling a sense of satisfaction that you can make a difference in people’s lives. Wayne Summerbell was my instructor and he is the reason I had such a positive experience. Wayne made every day fun and fulfilling, and adapted the course to answered all questions and individual goals – he made office hours widely available and was a fantastic teacher! I would recommend this program because it can be applied anywhere around the globe or online. ESL techniques can also be applied to other language classrooms – for instance, I am an elementary Spanish teacher and will definitely use the teaching techniques to elevate my own teaching and support my student’s growth.

I loved my experience with the TEFL course in Guatemala through Maximo Nivel. I recieved so much guidance and feedback throughout the course and I feel so prepared to use my certification. My host family accomodations were also wonderful and Antigua is such a beautiful city to be in.

My TEFL trainer Wayne at Maximo was just amazing. I started the course with no prior experience and he guided our class so well. He teaches the course using the techniques that you will be using by the end for your practical teaching week. This course pushes you and challenges you for sure, but it really prepares you for teaching. I was amazed at how well prepared I felt by the end of the course to be an ESL teacher after just the 4 weeks.

I am very glad that I chose Máximo Nivel for my TEFL certification. I have nothing to complain about. The whole entire course was challenging, but always manageable. The instructor was always an email or zoom call away for assistance. The staff was incredibly friendly. The city itself, Antigua, was safe and beautiful as well. I couldn’t recommend this program enough!

I decided to get my TEFL certificate this summer to improve my teaching EL skills and to teach abroad in the future. The program did not disappoint as I learned new methods or teaching while also enjoying the beautiful country of Costa Rica. The TEFL program at Maximo Nivel is well organized and features relevant content. My teacher, Wayne Summerbell, in Manuel Antonio was very dedicated, professional, knowledgeable, and caring. Although the program was intense, Wayne made it interesting and fun. Thanks to Wayne, I feel well prepared to teach TEFL classes in the future.
