MAXIMO NIVEL Reviews
TEFL Certification, CR
Submitted by Marie765 - Xavier University | July 22, 2017
The program is a great way to start a new career or continue practicing a current one. The class is a rewarding experience. The Maximo Nivel website and course-enrollment staff could be more clear. I applied in December, and details were changed in January AFTER I had already paid. This meant that several of the "included program details" I was previously guaranteed did not happen, which can be very frustrating on a budget. However, the course itself is really helpful to understand the techniques and tools to teach English as a foreign language!
Learn a new language quickly

I had two separate teachers while studying Spanish at Maximo Nivel. Both were fantastic. I loved that we could come in and on some days, just practice speaking the entire time. I took both private and group classes, and they were excellent. The other student was at a slightly different level than me, but we wanted to take class together, and the teacher did a great job balancing our two levels. Everything my experience with Maximo Nivel has been wonderful. I love learning words typical to Guatemala, so I can better understand my local friends. It is amazing to see how quickly your language skills improve from only an hour a day immersed in it. My classes were completely in Spanish and it's no problem. I have learned significantly more by being fully in Spanish for the entire hour. I highly recommend the Spanish program.

Deciding to get my TEFL certification in Manuel Antonio was one of the best decisions I have had in a while. The program was harder than I expected, but I really enjoyed it regardless. Audra makes learning the content that would normally feel really dry, fun and exciting. We definitely laughed every day in class and had a beautiful teasing view of the ocean. The practical teaching week was the best because we actually got to teach local students and develop relationships. Feedback was given promptly and Laura was great to have as support. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation while getting your TEFL certification, think twice, but it will be a very rewarding experience if you decide to do it. The staff in Manuel Antonio is superb. Everyone was extremely helpful and approachable. If you want to get your TEFL certification while in a beautiful place, I highly recommend this place.
PS: that picture was legit taken from the building you'd be taking classes in.

This is no joke! It is a hard class. However, that doesn't mean you can't have a blast! I have learned so much and such a great time. Audra and Laura are great and really care you. They make what could be a super boring course into a great experience.
Amazing Hybrid Program
Submitted by Catrina - Scripps College | July 21, 2017
I did the hybrid program, which involved me doing readings and assignments with the assistance of my instructor and joining the class for the final 2 weeks. This flexibility really worked for my schedule. Manuel Antonio is an adorable beach town that was a great place to relax at after the rigorous training every day. My host mom was so amazing and accommodating and I cannot speak highly enough of her cooking. Be prepared for a lot of intense work that improves you so much as a teacher. I learned so much and it was totally worth it and I feel extremely prepared.
