International TEFL Academy TEFL Certification Course in Heredia, Costa Rica Reviews

Amazing course

I was certified though the TEFL Academy in Barva, Heredia, Costa Rica and it was simply the most incredible experience. I was supported throughout the entire course and always encouraged to do my best. I never felt overwhelmed and I always had my trainers as resources if I needed help or advice. The TEFL Academy helped me to find a job and I even got hired to work at the school I did my training at. The teachers that trained us are so supportive and they’ve really created a well knit family of English teachers. Being away from my family is the hardest part for me when living abroad. But being able to have a beautiful group of English teachers who are working to better themselves and in turn better the world really makes the homesickness fade. I could not be any more grateful for the experience I’ve had here and I hope to help others reach for the stars and accomplish their dreams. Pura vida
