HYBRID TEFL
CERTIFICATION

ONLINE + ONSITE

The Hybrid TEFL certification program is perfect for people who have less time to travel, but still want the benefit of onsite coaching and in-person practical teaching experience. The Hybrid TEFL is a thorough introduction to Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL). During the 150-hour course you study the same modules as the standard, onsite, 4-week TEFL program. You complete the first half of the course through guided self-study, and 7 hours of included tutoring by Skype with your TEFL Trainer. For the second half, you complete your course onsite at one of Maximo Nivel’s institutes in Costa Rica, Guatemala, or Peru. While you are onsite you cover all the Teaching Methodology and Practical Teaching modules of the course.

During your Hybrid TEFL, you become familiar with the principles of successful ESL teaching and you develop the practical skills needed to effectively teach English anywhere in the world. During the online portion of the course, your TEFL Trainer challenges you to think creatively while coaching you through the assignments. Note that you must be self-guided and take responsibility for your own learning. For the onsite portion of your Hybrid TEFL, you join the existing group of in-country TEFL trainees and pickup right where you left off in the online modules. Remember, the more you put into your TEFL training, the more you get out of it!

WHAT’S INCLUDED

Why I Maximo Nivel

I chose this course because of the Hybrid program, allowing me to do the first half online and the second half onsite! It was amazing, I learned so much in a short period and feel adequately prepared for a career which I had no experience in only a couple weeks before. The course is inspiring and empowering, driven by the amazing and passionate teacher Karen. Very thankful I chose this course!
