MAXIMO NIVEL Reviews
Submitted by Mariela - Guatemala | February 19, 2017
The Tefl program at Maximo Nivel Guatemala is just fantastic!
Karen my teacher was amazing, she made this whole experience go to another level. She has vast knowledge of the english language and tons of years of experience teaching. I was blessed to learn from a master.
The program is so well balanced and organized. They take you step by step to show you the methodology and give tons of opportunities to put it into practice. You get to experience live teaching, (which is the best part of the program) because that is where all the learnings sink in and make sense.
We got tons of support from our teacher, her assistant and all the Maximo Nivel staff. They were there to help us in any way they could and to see us succeed.
Living in Antigua is wonderful, its a small colonial town. Easy to move around, you can get walking everywhere. There are tons of cute stores, cafes and cool places to eat out (plus there some cool bars and clubs as well).
I truly recommend Maximo Nivel and Antigua for your Tefl certification. You will have a life changing experience, plus meet tons of cool people and make new friends.

I loved this program. All of the staff at Maximo Nivel are amazing indviduals who care about their clientele. The teachers were also very invested in creating a fun environment that was conducive to learning. There was never a dull day. I feel that this program gave me a great foundation for teaching and the necessary tools to be successful. I am excited to begin my journey as a teacher!
Holiday program during Christmas/ New Years 2016
Submitted by Christina Rodriguez - Bronx | February 18, 2017
I had the pleasure of volunteering for two weeks with Maximo Nivel in Antigua, Guatemala. I was enrolled in their holiday program during Christmas/ New Years. During my stay there we worked with children from impoverished areas to help brighten up their holidays. We had a wonderful Christmas fiesta with plenty of games, food and even a piñata. The children especially enjoyed the arts and crafts, jump rope, cards games, twister and soccer game. I even became a doll for several of the young girls as they pretended to put make up on me and do up my hair, it was adorable!
We also participated in some construction at a health clinic called the Centro the Salud Sumpango. Together volunteers worked enthusiastically help build an additional room and add in a new entrance so patients would no longer have to wait outside in the rain to see a physician. It was quite rewarding seeing everything once it had been completed. The out pour of appreciation was overwhelming.
I also had the opportunity of touring Antigua, Guatemala which was absolutely breathtaking. I climbed the Pacaya volcano, went to Tikal and enjoyed touring several museums and churches throughout Antigua. I even took Spanish classes with Maximo Nivel, which I loved!!
The icing on the cake for me though was the friendly and attentive staff at Maximo Nivel which was a huge relief since I was traveling alone and had never been to Guatemala. The staff was truly, sincere, caring and kind; you simply can’t put a price on that! This was my second time traveling with Maximo Nivel and I‘m sure it won’t be my last.
A special thank you to Collins and Maritza! I showed up in Guatemala with a large number of donated Christmas toys without even warning them and without skipping a bit Maritza organized/ planned and helped me to give out the toys to orphaned boys and girls throughout Guatemala, thank you so much Maritza!! My heart is still overflowing with great memories of joy!
Christmas & New Years 2016

This course and place exceeded all my expectations! From the amazing and helpful office staff to the TEFL trainers themselves, this experience has been fantastic.
The material was thorough and well presented. I was in a large group of trainees but we all received personalized attention when we needed it. From theory to lesson planning to practical teaching, help was available. The trainers are supportive and encouraging. I cannot say enough about the quality of the teachers.
The highlight of my experience was having a class of my own for a week. Nothing sinks those lessons home like doing! I loved my experience here in Guatemala and would recommend this school and course to anyone considering a TEFL career.

I am 63 years old and just graduated from TEFL class in Manuel Antonio. I have lived here in Manuel Antonio by myself and had blast. People over 50 or 60 should not be intimidated. This is a safe place if you use common sense. The course is hard work, you are not just paying Maximo Nivel to print you a certificate, but you have something worthwhile when you finish!
