"I had no idea what I was getting myself into the second I signed up for my course in Manuel Antonio Costa Rica, but I quickly learned it was the right choice. The staff is amazing and the facilities are great!! Free fresh coffee as soon as the doors are open and until they close at night ( this is a plus for those late TEFL nights). The course is intense, but with the amazing instructors they have for the program there is now way you will not want to give it your all in the course. From day 2 I was having hands on learning by actually having my own English class for 20 mins. You aré in clases a los, but with your instructors it will be far from boring (my instructor Karen actually had us "adults" standings on our chairs in a batman costume and it was complete genius). I would have never said I would be a teacher but after this course I don't see how I could not be one. Awesome job Maximo!"

"After researching multiple TEFL courses around the world I chose to certify with the Maximo Nivel program in Antigua, Guatemala. The teachers, directors and staff could not have been more supportive and caring about the success of each of the student teachers and students. It was a very challenging program, which I appreciate. Maximo Nivel sets the standard of learning in high regard, while also maintaining the importance in the joy of learning. Knowing what I know now, would I do the same program? 100% YES!!!!"

"I highly recommend the TEFL program at Maximo Nivel. This was a wonderful experience that was challenging, fun and rewarding. Our class had so much fun on a day to day basis primarily due to the awesomeness of our instructor (Claudia). I would definitely recommend this program, in Cusco, Peru to anyone looking to pursue this route. In addition, the support from the entire International Team and Maximo staff was amazing. They help with any questions and issues that come up from where to eat, shop, and how to have a good time. They also continue to provide information about job opportunities around the world. Just do it!!! You won't regret it!"

"The TEFL program at Maximo Nivel was one of the most professional courses I have ever taken (and that is a LOT of courses). I am 66 years old, have a bachelors degree and and MBA, and am a retired USAF Colonel. This course challenges you on all fronts...the TEFL process is somewhat foreign to a long-time instructor...and getting back into details of grammar was not easy. The course requires lots of reading, course participation, several detailed lesson plans, a grammar paper, and practical teaching. It is the practical teaching that culminates the course, where you get a chance to put to use all the techniques and skills you've been studying. When you can see the results first hand in the response of your students, it becomes clear how valuable the course is. I would recommend this course at Maximo Nivel to anyone contemplating teaching English abroad."
