The best decision I've ever made

I’m currently participating in LanguageCorps’ TEFL course in Peru and I’m having the time of my life! The experience has been very pleasant, from the moment I was picked up at the airport and brought to my host family until now. The course is definitely intensive, but I’m enjoying it A LOT and I couldn’t ask for a more professional, supportive and fun trainer! The rest of the staff is great as well and the students are a lot of fun to work with. We had our first teaching practice on day 2, which I completed with trembling legs, but I was amazed by how much I had improved during the second time. I can’t wait to put my knowledge into practice. I’m finalizing details with the academic director here and will start teaching a week after finishing the course (something with #Igottaseemachupicchufirst). Highly recommend the experience!

Coolio in Cusco

A superb and unforgettable experience. The tutors were professional and gave the utmost of support, admirable in the giving of their time to ensure all learners were clear about the objectives and requirements of the course. Fellow learners made the whole experience. A wonderful mix of individuals who were witty and supportive and a pleasure to be around. Be prepared to work, the course is intensive and ‘full on’ but so worth it in the end. Practical teaching experience was a pleasure and the Peruvian students were simply delightful to teach. A real bonus to the course! Get yourself to Cusco and enjoy the mysteries of the Incas and the delights of a very friendly and warm population of people. Some wonderful restaurants and fantastic food to enjoy too 😃

What would you improve about this program?
Having new computers would assist in the writing of assignments etc. Could be terribly frustrating when the computers stopped working or erased your work.

TEFL in Cusco!

The TEFL program in Cusco is great! LanguageCorps did a great job of answering all my questions and preparing me before coming to Cusco. When I got here, the partner school did a fantastic job of making me feel settled here and they were available 24/7 (literally) to helps with any questions or anything else you needed. The TEFL course itself was really good and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to do the course. The instructor is fantastic and really knows how to make the course fun. It is challenging, but definitely manageable and the instructor definitely helps you with time management and completing the requirements. The best part about this TEFL course is that you get to actually teach real ESL students for a week. In addition to the course, Cusco is a beautiful city with so much to do and so much to see around here. I definitely recommend you doing the program in Peru!

Questions & Answers

Currently in Peru the visa process can take 8-12 months. It is very difficult for short term teachers to obtain a work visa because of this. In Latin America, most people simply enter and exit the country using their tourist visa. This means you don’t have legal residence or work status in the country, but you do have permission to be in the country, and you can easily renew your tourist visa...
