    Amazing Experience in Costa Rica
    02/12/2016

    Taking TEFL with Maximo Nivel in Costa Rica has been the most amazing experience! The school overlooks a beautiful beach, the staff is incredibly accommodating, the course is chalk full of hands on teaching opportunities and the culture here is beautiful. My instructors, Audra Wooldridge and Kevin Martinson made all the difference with their encouragement, vivaciousness and love for teaching. I highly recommend this course to anyone with an adventurous spirit, a love for teaching and an appreciation for natural beauty. Thanks to everyone at Maximo Nivel for making this experience so memorable.

    Awesome time!
    02/12/2016

    The course was quite intensive, and yet, a lot of fun. Our instructor, Audra, was fantastic!! She is a great teacher who makes tough content easier to understand, dry stuff fun, and brings her wonderful attitude to class every day. She is a wealth of knowledge and offers astute feedback. She truly wants everyone to be successful and was always available to help us out. Everyone at Maximo Manuel Antonio was very friendly and helpful: Kevin (assistant extraordinaire!), Barbara, Karen, Jake, and Brandon. A big heartfelt thanks to all of you!!! I hope our paths cross again soon.

    Awesome program!
    02/12/2016

    I highly recommend this course (ESPECIALLY with this program) to any and all people who are wanting to change up their daily routine, people who want a productive vacation, or anyone who wants to travel and make a living wage and have fun while doing it. The instructors of the program were amazing, and provided me with awesome job finding assistance, more so than I was expecting, and awesome moral support.
    This is an awesome program, and well worth it all.
    10 out of 10!

    How could this program be improved?

    Not enough information given before leaving the country. More about home stay information should be given.

    Teaching English to adults in Cusco
    02/12/2016

    What a rewarding experience! The students in my class, ages ranging from 12 to 60-something, have a desire to learn/improve their English. But they also are sincerely interested in "giving back." Among laughter and good times, they helped me with my Spanish (as well, of course, as my Spanish teacher from Maximo Nivel!) I'll remember this trip for the strong support of the MN staff and the warm-hearted people of Peru...

    02/12/2016

    I had a great time at Maximo Nivel and learned so much! I definitely felt prepared to be a teacher by the end of the course, and my knowledge of the English language expanded as well. Karen, my TEFL trainer was especially awesome, and made 150 hours of course material (that easily could have been boring and dry) both interesting and entertaining. And being in Costa Rica definitely didn't hurt! Loved it! I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested.
