Teaching Practice Maximo Nivel TEFL review, submitted by Alina.
I just want to start this review by stating that the course and support were excellent. Everyone I communicated with was extremely helpful and went out of their way to accommodate my needs. The course is well-written and without the grammar and spelling mistakes which I’ve seen as being complaints of some of the other online TEFL programs reviewed on TTR. The MNT course has been specifically designed for people with plans to teach in either Central or South America, and they have a long history of placing teachers in those locations. The advent of Covid couldn’t have been something that MNT could have anticipated, but they did their best to accommodate me when it came to my teaching hours which make up a section of this Hybrid teaching English course. It was disappointing though that the course price remained the same, even though I only taught my classes online via Zoom and the school didn’t incur the costs of arranging a short-term placement in Costa Rica. I expected there to be a discount because I wasn’t receiving the full package, but I ended up paying the same whether I taught my practicum hours online or in Manuel Antonio. At the very least, they could have provided a discount or vouchers. Again, I know it wasn’t their fault that a pandemic came along during the time when I was preparing for a two-week stint in Costa Rica, but some form of compensation would have been a nice touch. In the end, I did enjoy my online teaching classes, but nothing can replace the in-person teaching environment.
