My favorite learning experience abroad!

10/10

I gained so much through this course, professionally and personally. The staff are the best i believe you can find in any program, extremely knowledgeable personable and helpful people who also support you in exploring and enjoy beautiful Granada and Nicaragua. Also, the facilities are beautiful and spacious with mutliple indoor and outdoor classrooms and work areas and Paul really encourages you to feel at home at his school. The coursework was rigorous but Paul gives you as much help as you need so if you use his help anybody can be successful in this course. In addition, my homestay experience was amazing and i highly recommend it to anybody doing this course!

How can this program be improved?

Nothing I can think of, really well done program.

Set me up for success!

9/10

Although very challenging, this course gave me everything I needed and more to become a successful TEFL certified teacher. What I really loved about this program included the teaching observations, the six teaching practices, and the regular feedback from the instructors, the teachers in the school, and the other students. The experience was made even better since it was taught in an English school, so we had access to all the necessary learning materials and ideas so that we were self-assured about teaching from day one.

In addition, you have a truly unique experience as you learn in the center of Granada, Nicaragua. Not only do you have a chance to learn how to teach, but you have all of the resources to improve your Spanish speaking level. I went from novice to conversational in the span of just a few weeks. The instructors plan weekly outings in and around Granada (Laguna de Apoyo, Las Isletas, San Juan del Sur, etc) so that you have a chance to experience the beautiful nature of Nicaragua as well as a chance to interact with the lovely locals.

This was worth the time and money, and if you have the means, I highly recommend this rewarding course!

Become a teacher and discover Nicaragua on your way

10/10

The course was intense but very rewarding. You have to plan six lessons during the course and then you will get to teach them in front of students of the English language. Paul was always there to support you and help you out. He also planned a few nice trips on the weekends (Laguna de Apoyo, kayaking through the islets, pacific beach). The other teachers at the school are also very nice. I'm glad I did this course with Paul and his team because I feel prepared to be an English teacher now and had lots of fun.

Great experience

9/10

Although the course fairly involved, it was extremely rewarding. I learnt a lot from it, and definitely felt equipped to start teaching. Paul offered a lot of help, and genuinely cared about your success on the course, and also during the teaching practices. The school is a great place. Very relaxing, with 4 beautiful cats. Paul was a great host! We went on a lot of fun day trips to beautiful places. I couldn't of chosen a better place to get my TEFL teaching qualification.

How can this program be improved?

I can't think of anything at this point.

A year later and I still haven't left..

10/10

When I signed up for the 4 week intensive course, I had no idea about what to expect. I couldn't have dreamt that it was as rewarding, engaging and life changing as it was. While at times difficult, Paul and the rest of the staff supported me every step of the way and I learned things that would not only help me in my teaching career but in whatever future opportunities I embark on. This TEFL course not only provided me with the skills and confidence to teach anywhere int he world but it also gave me a close and inviting community that made me fall in love and decide to ultimately stay in Granada. I've now been here for over a year and still love teaching and my students.
