MAXIMO NIVEL Reviews
One on one learning
Submitted by Samantha Bass - San Francisco | January 19, 2018
The Spanish program itself was great. Since it was low season in Peru while I was studying I was able to get a lot of attention so my Spanish excelled rapidly. Cusco is a great city with many different learning and exploring opportunities.
Physical Therapy Experience
Submitted by Mac Wheeler - Marquette University | January 17, 2018
I was a volunteer in the physical therapy department at a senior living facility in the city of Cartago. I worked alongside other students from a local university and provided assistance to them however they needed it during their morning therapy sessions with the residents. My personal responsibilities were limited as my manual therapy skills and knowledge are not too extensive, but I still greatly enjoyed the experience and learned some new skills as well. The residents were very fun to talk to as they had many interesting stories to share and were also very interested in learning more about me! The clinical supervisor Juan was a great teacher, and the other students were also very welcoming towards me. Working with these students helped me meet some local Costa Ricans around my own age and I developed some great friendships with them. I also received great support from my site coordinator, Tati who was always checking in on me and making sure I was having a rewarding experience.
Overall, this experience would be very beneficial to a PT student who has some background in clinical treatment as it will allow you to participate more at your site. However, even if your skills are limited you can still learn a lot by being assertive in asking questions and trying to take on more responsibilities. The more you put into this experience, the more you'll get out of it!
Guatemala was amazing!!!
Submitted by Alan - SDSU | January 15, 2018
One of the most exciting two weeks spent in Guatemala and the support of Maximo was a plus. Getting the opportunity to volunteer for the holiday project and child care was very rewarding. I enjoyed each day by exploring antigua and assisting with project placement. I would highly recommend this location because of the involvment with projects and with people at maximo by providing support throughout the two weeks.
Karen and Maximo are wonderful!
Submitted by Jillian - Denver United States | January 10, 2018
Maximo has been quite the experience for me. I took the TEFL course in Antigua Guatemala For starters the teacher (Karen) that led my group was amazing!!! Caring, patient, and extremely knowlendgable! She was there every single step of the way offering a helping hand, and giving great realistic advice. She's been doing this a long time and she still loves it. You can tell. She genuinely cares about her students and their futures. Aside from her the staff at Maximo is very helpful as well. They offer their time and resources for all of the students and staff. I loved my experience with Maximo and can proudly say I will be working for them starting in February!
Cultural and Spanish classes at Maximo Nivel
Submitted by Braxtin Thomas - Tennessee Tech University | January 10, 2018
Overall my trip and classes were excellent. I really enjoyed the program and the staff at Maximo Novel here in Manuel Antonio. The professor worked well with myself and helped to integrate the culture aspect of my class into a Spanish learning based class. Maximo Nivel ran smoothly and would recommend the program for someone who was looking to learn about culture and sharpen up their Spanish. My host mom was amazing, as she helped me a lot with my Spanish and providing two tasty meals everyday. I really enjoyed my time in Costa Rica and am excited to come back again one day.
