    Well worth it!

    I wasn't too sure what to think of the TEFL course before arriving in Antigua but the Maximo staff are welcoming and look after you very well. The course is tough and demanding but as long as you are prepared to work hard and want to do well, you will have no problems. My teacher, Audra, was so great...she has so much energy, is dedicated to her students and is hilarious. I highly recommend taking this course with Maximo Nivel as you are well looked after, you can meet all sorts of people and you are sure to have blast! It is well worth having the TEFL certification whether you are travelling or not.

    I learned so much!

    As a Spanish teacher in the United States, my primary reason taking this course was to gain experience teaching my own native language abroad. I gained this and MORE from Maximo Nivel! I learned many techniques I can put into practice in my Spanish classroom, as well valuable information about the TEFL profession around the world. Additionally, I feel confident that if I ever decide to seek employment abroad, the many wonderful people at Maximo Nivel will be there to assist me in my job search. My TEFL instructor, Audra, was FABULOUS! If you are interested in TEFL and teaching in beautiful Latin America, I highly recommend that you choose Maximo Nivel!

    During my five weeks in Cusco, I was amazed at how my comfort conversing in Spanish improved. Having never studied the language before, I did not expect to be having 30 minute conversations entirely in Spanish by the end of my fifth week. I especially like my teacher's willingness to modify her lesson plans to assist us with topics and phrases that we encountered elsewhere in the city. Between her and the wonderful support staff at Maximo Nivel, I gained not only comfort in speaking Spanosh but several good friends as well.

    Growth, Good times, Great people. You will gain a renewed and broader perspective in the field of your placement area and improve your spanish speaking skills exponentially. You will have the opportunity to build strong and lasting relationships with locals and volunteers. You may even be lucky enough to dance the night away to a mariachi band and sing karaoke until dawn... Do this program!

    How could this program be improved?

    More planned events with other volunteers and local people could only improve the program.

    Maximo Nivel is an incredible organization! Not only do they provide amazing volunteer/intern opportunities but they are 100% commited to ensuring your adventure is amazing. The staff are always there for whatever you need and are absolutely incredible. Whenever I needed any guidance, support or even a recommendation on somewhere to eat - they were always there to help. Throughout your time volunteering/interning with them, they will be there to support you and ensure you're experience is awesome. My experience with Maximo Nivel was nothing but positive. I would go back in a heartbeat!!

    How could this program be improved?

    The tour company that Maximo Nivel is paired with is quite pricey and the guides they use in some tours can sometimes leave much to be desired
