Great Experience!

I had a really good experience taking my TEFL course with Greenheart. Kara was incredibly helpful and responsive. She answered all my questions, enrolled me, and solved any issues quickly and efficiently. Thanks Kara for making my overall experience a breeze! With Greenheart you don't necessarily have to take a TEFL course, you can opt to do one of their programs alone (check the site). But if you are also interested in doing TEFL it is great! The program helps you take care of the administrative work and you can then use your experience in the program towards your practicum hours! 2 in 1!

What was the most unfamiliar thing you ate?
The most unfamiliar thing I ate was actually rabbit! As I am doing Greenheart Travel's Homestay program in France, I celebrated Christmas here! With the family I was staying with they prepared rabbit braised in a mustard cream sauce, it was absolutely divine!

My great experience

I am with Green heart organization right now since I am an exchange student in US and so glad for everything they provided to me. To improve my English I went to Language program which is provided by Green heart. And that was amazing. Local coordinators took us to so many cool places. They even took us to Boston, Massachusetts. All employees in green heart are super nice people.They found for me such a great placement to live and they always have lots of opportunities to win something or win a place to go! I am highly recommended it to everyone!!! And you I am not paying anything for this program. Everything what they did for me and doing for me is free. Before when I came to my place ment to live me and my friend form the same program stocked at the airport because of the weather and green heart employees helped us with money and everything. It was so nice. They are easy to find a common thing.
