I found this TEFL course a real challenge - each day was full from about 8.30am to 5pm. We had homework and prep to do each evening as well. But, even though it was a tough few weeks, I really enjoyed it and was so pleased to pass the course and gain my TEFL qualification. I stayed in a great hostel near the centre of Granada - it was the perfect location for going out on the Calzada (the main street for bars and restaurants) on the weekends. My tutor, Paul, was always happy to help and give advice when I was completing the assignments and he gave really useful feedback after each teaching practice. He also gave me some really good tips and advice on finding a teaching job after I passed the course.

Nicaragua surprised and impressed me throughout my stay. Granada is a beautiful colonial city full of great bars, restaurants and authentic Nicaraguan culture. The other places I visited during my stay were also beautiful and worth the trip - the beaches around San Juan Del Sur were the highlight for me. I found it hard to leave at the end of the course and will definitely be returning. The course itself is really comprehensive and I feel excited and confident in starting my teaching career. Thanks team INTESOL Nicaragua!

I have recently returned from studying at INTESOL Nicaragua and cannot recommend it enough. The course was comprehensive with ample classroom experience with time to observe and evaluate other lessons. The tutors were really helpful and knowledgeable and went out of their way to help students pass the course. The weekend trips and day excursions were a great break from studying and I loved exploring Nicaragua's coastline and jungles. Once I finished the course I had advice and help in finding a short-term voluntary placement with a local school. I already miss Granada and the INTESOL staff and hope to return one day!
