Why I Maximo Nivel
I had a really goot time in Manuel Antonio. The course isnt easy, and you will spend lots of time doing work on assignments, lesson plans, and teaching prep, but it is worth it. The course gives you 2 three day weekends we used to travel, and on other weekends hung out at the beautiful beaches/natural parks. Our instructor was a blast, and really fun person who kept the class fun, interesting, but also laid back. She understood that this experience is about fun too!
