This was an amazing program; you do not need to have a background in education/teaching to take the TEFL program at Maximo Nivel. I completed 4 weeks of intense studying, teaching locals and learning different methods to become an effective teacher. The course is for all learners and the TEFL trainer in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica was amazing. (She knows what she’s doing) My experience is unforgettable and positive. I had amazing classmates and the staff at Maximo Nivel was extremely helpful when I was in need. I recommend this program to anyone who wants another skill in education or a career change.
