About

Our mission is to ignite meaningful connections and purposeful change in the world through the power of education.

We believe curious, mindful travel is the best learning experience there is, and the power of imparting knowledge to others while gaining some in return is enough to sanction a lifetime of understanding. At globalU, our goal is to bring the world closer together through cross-cultural examinations in the English classroom. We seek open-minded individuals who are curious about the world, and those who don’t travel to see, but those who travel to learn, to ignite wisdom in themselves and those around them. We want to create a globe with blurry lines, one where cultural diversity is respected and valued, one where humans can peacefully coexist in various forms, one where English is a common language. We believe education is the vehicle to take us there.

We provide a range of internationally recognized TEFL certification courses and recruitment opportunities with an honest,

I was tired of living in the same place and wanted to travel around Asia but didn’t know how to do it. I saw a photo of Thailand on Instagram and decided I needed to make the trip and make it my new home. After some research I decided to work with Teach English ESL and it was the best decision of my life. Jessica Hill, the agent that guided me through the program, helped me every single step of the way and got me to where I am today. She was very nice and responsive and always eager to help no matter how stupid or small the question was. Now I am living in Thailand, happier than ever, and I couldn’t have done it any better way.

TeachEnglish: ESL facilitated enrolling me in an International TEFL Academy (ITA) TESOL/TEFL certification course in Costa Rica, which I just completed in May 2016. The value was great and there was a lot of flexibility with course date offerings. Jessica Hill of TeachEnglish: ESL was very available and answered all my questions prior to registration. The course itself is an ITA course administered by Costa Rica TESOL (https://www.facebook.com/Costa.Rica.TESOL.TEFL/?fref=ts), and is internationally accredited. With that ITA certificate, you can teach anywhere.

The course is rigorous, and includes 180 hours of class and 10 hours of practicum; this is well above most other standard TEFL certification course offerings so you are sure to surpass most if not every country's minimum certification requirements. Don't anticipate free time during the course; it is FULL-TIME. Nonetheless, I loved every minute and I highly recommend this course. The institute is located in Barva, in the Heredia province of Costa Rica. I stayed with a homestay and loved it, especially my host mom's cooking.

I was not planning to stay in Costa Rica, but for those who are, there is TONS of job assistance and several of my peers already found jobs with the help of the Costa Rica TESOL instructors and ITA job assistance (which is guaranteed for life). And because this is through the ITA, they have tons of lifelong job assistance for anyone looking to work anywhere.

This course was well worth the investment of time and money. I loved the instructors, small class sizes, materials, and practicum.

The 3-week TEFL course in Bangkok was absolutely worth it. I met a ton of new people and made memories that will last a lifetime. The course helped me easily transition to life in Thailand. Jessica did a phenomenal job of answering all of my questions and concerns throughout the entire process.

How can this program be improved?
AYC need better placement information packets.

This 3-week course in Bangkok was a great way to get TESOL certified and also be able to explore Thailand and meet new people.

Jessica was very helpful throughout the whole process, always answering emails in a timely manner, and offering her own personal advice!

How can this program be improved?
I wish more books were included with the course. But they do email you links/stuff online.

Jessica does a really good job of helping you prepare before you go overseas and she helps you just as much when you are actually in Thailand. She was very professional and I recommend her to anyone.
