MAXIMO NIVEL Reviews
Teaching with the best of them
Submitted by Robert | June 19, 2017
Maximo Nivel was above and beyond what I expected. At first the program was very helpful in answering all of my questions during the on board process. Once I arrived in Quepos the host family I was paired with was a perfect fit. Maximo Nivel has done their due diligence in choosing these families. The real reason that this program was so amazing was because of the amazing teacher I had. Audra was a flawless. In a multi-cultural filled class of students wanting to learn how to become TEFL teachers, she was able to identify our strengths and play on them. Each day I was excited to show up to see what I was going to learn next. She gave constructive criticism when needed but most of all made this whole experience amazing. Easily one of if not my favorite teachers ever. Going forward as a TEFL graduate from Maximo Nivel, I have no doubt that this was the right move for me. So if you have any doubts, whether it be the length of the course or the cost, throw them out the window and take a chance. This was hands down the best move I have ever made in my adult life and hope that this helps anyone who is on the fence about doing the onsite one month program. The only thing you can never waste your money on is traveling. Having this amazing course under my belt now is proof of that.

When I first started looking for a school that would meet my needs, Maximo Nivel kept popping up in my search inquires. I decided to delve a little further into this program, and I am so glad that I did. From the very start of requesting information, Julia-not sure of her job title, but she was a part of the international program and the reason I eventually choose Maximo Nivel, was very patient and very attentive with answering my many questions. Julia also arranged pick up for my arrival in Costa Rica, provided transportation to my prearranged host family, and was most generous at offering any continuous help if needed.
My first day at Maximo Nivel was no different than the great customer service that Julia had given me; the staff extended the same courtesies. The program at Maxmof Nivel is top notch. I was impressed at how much information was covered in only a 4 week span. The program from my perspective provided:
• Intensive classroom instruction
• An opportunity to observe the teaching skills and strategies by former students of Maximo Nivel
• Techniques to teach English without knowing the mother tongue of the students taught
• How to prepare thorough and in-depth lesson plans
• How to obtain and maintain classroom management
• The opportunity to teach non-English speakers from the community
• Continued support and encouragement
• Life time certification
Audra, the instructor that taught me, was highly knowledgeable, very enthusiastic and energetic. She kept things fun, yet she left no stone unturned when it came to making sure each of her students was well prepared. I would highly recommend this program to anyone that is serious about wanting to make a difference in the lives of those who want to learn to speak English. Two of the nine students that were in my class had already accepted jobs upon their completion of the program.
TEFL Costa Rica
Submitted by Ayanna - Atlanta | June 16, 2017
Taking the TEFL course through Maximo Nivel was so much more than I thought it would be! I did the 4 week program based in Costa Rica and I absolutely recommend taking your TEFL here. My instructor, Audra, was great. She really makes this intensive course fun and possible. The institute itself has most of the resources that you need, and if they don't have something, they'll help you find what you need. The view is also fantastic. If you have any doubts about taking the TEFL course in Manuel Antonio, don't! They will answer all of your questions and you will definitely learn the key ESL techniques.
Wonderful Teaching Experience
Submitted by Ashley Barnes - Western Governors University | June 16, 2017
This was a wonderful course! I am so glad that I took the TEFL certification course through Maximo Nivel. Audra was an absolutely incredible teacher--she made the content relevant and easy to comprehend. She was full of energy, which made the course a lot of fun, and she was also available for help whenever we needed her. The practical teaching portion was invaluable. To be able to actually teach to real-life learners was a perfect opportunity to put the content into practice, and I think this is what really made this course stand out. It was a perfect way to spend four weeks learning!

This is a very intense but rewarding program. Our days were packed with interesting lectures, observations and HOMEWORK! The staff at Maximo are extremely supportive and work hard to ensure you make the most of your experience.
Quepos and Manuel Antonio are beautiful cities that you must TAKE time to enjoy. The people are very friendly and the area is full of culture.
And my host mom, Miriam, was the best! Her welcoming spirit and her fabulous cooking.
