Great TEFL Course. Highly Recommended!

10/10

I have recently completed the 140 hours TEFL Course in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. This month long course opened my eyes to the methods of great teaching.
The course is intensive but the support I received made it manageable. The teachers and the staff were highly competent and supportive and the program was rigorously planned and structured. Their feedback helped me to improve my teaching to a great extent. We were a small group of 10 and all got along well and have been a great support to each other.
Puerto Vallarta is one of the best cities in Mexico and having the backdrop of a vibrant, energetic city with beaches on your doorstep while you study certainly means you always have something to look forward to after a hard day of teaching or working on a project or lesson plans.
The course was challenging but extremely rewarding. I would highly recommend this course to anyone!

A very comprehensive and practical program

10/10

This was a very comprehensive course. The teacher, Raúl, is an expert.

I'm glad I didn't take any other one.

I received a letter from them upon completion with an excellent mark.

They let us teach at their academy during the course.

I cannot say more than that this is worth every penny. I may go back with my girlfriend so that she can do it as well.

Alan the director is a wizard. He is always smiling and happy. He can get you a job in many places around the world. Great people.

How can this program be improved?

No improvements needed

4 Weeks on the Beach

10/10

First of all, Puerto Vallarta is a BEAUTIFUL place worth visiting for any reason. It's the best, though, when you can visit such a place and get something tangibly beneficial out of the experience. VIA provided me with a very comfortable learning environment with down to Earth teachers and real life students to teach. All while living close to the beach and taking in the delicious food and culture of this coastal town.

The most promising part about VIA is that they are on the up and up. I got to work with Raul Gonzalez, who is an experienced, world-traveled teacher with an abundance of insight toward the career of teaching abroad. Raul is writing new textbooks for the entire program and has a vision to turn VIA into one of the best TEFL academies in the world.

I am still fresh out of the program and have not begun teaching abroad yet. Director Alan Davalos is well-connected to potential schools, particularly in Mexico, and found opportunities for my classmates before the course was even over. I, however, am interested in teaching further south in Colombia. Alan has assured me that he will work with me every step of the way to finding a good job and I am confident that we will.

How can this program be improved?

The staff understands that the best way to improve as a teacher is to teach. They throw us right in to the deep end with students and let us swim. I think this is a valid technique but most of the time, there were no experienced teachers observing to provide feedback toward what we are doing wrong/right.
