Volunteer Abroad Bolivia Maximo Nivel TEFL review, submitted by Stuart.
Volunteer Abroad Bolivia.
Maximo Nivel was the company I chose to do my teacher training course through because they specialize in South America volunteer placements. The course took the form of online training and in person teaching practice, the latter I completed in Costa Rica. This was before Covid so I don’t know how the in person hours are arranged now. I gained a lot from both sections of the course. Doing the teaching practice in Costa Rica was a luxury that I could afford at the time and it was a luxury well enjoyed 🙂 I recommend it to anyone with the budget and available time. Costa Rica is such a gorgeous country and the staff down in Antonio Manuel were real helpful. After returning home to tie up loose ends I continued on to La Paz, Bolivia, where I volunteered as an English tutor. I have fond memories of the year that I spent in La Paz and I remain in contact with a few of my students on Facebook. I wasn’t paid for any of my teaching but I did get free food and board and a bit of pocket money for scheduled trips out to nearby sites and cities. The highlight of these was hands down Lake Titicaca. One of the other teachers and I did the walk from Copacabana town to Isla del Sol-catching a fisherman’s boat from the mainland over to the island- and that will be a memory hard to forget. Titicaca is the world’s highest navigable lake and this makes for crystal clear blue water. It was SO beautiful there! After my volunteer year I did consider staying on to teach full-time hours for a language school that offered me work but the salary just didn’t make sense for me so I reluctantly left back home and have since been tutoring to students online. Everyone should try volunteering once in their life- it really is a win/win for everyone involved.
