Photo of TEFL Programs in Heredia & Samara Beach, Costa Rica Samara is a cozy, little beach village, perfect to soak up beach life and sun in an unhurried atmosphere. It is located on the shore of an idyllic pale sand beach, fringed by coconut palms. The shallow waters of the large half moon bay are protected by a coral reef which makes swimming a delight. Low tide produces a vast swathe of sand, providing playground for all kinds of beach games.

Samara Beach is lined by beautiful tropical palm tree which provide great shade for resting out of the hot sun. Samara is great for learning to surf. These trainees learned to teach English and surf with the local surf instructors. The school has troipcal green gardens you can relax in and enjoy. You may even see the local wild horses.


 

Image of Costa Rica TEFL, Samara Beach & Heredia In the hills just north of San Jose, on the slope of Barva Volcano, is the smallest of the provincial capitals, Heredia. With a population of just over 30,000 people, the city has a slower more mellow pace. As with many Latin towns founded during colonial times, 1706 in the case of Heredia, the central square dominates the life of it's people.

One of the nicest central parks in the country, it is filled with large towering trees, covered bandstand, impressive water fountain and plenty of benches. It is the perfect place to while away an afternoon playing checkers. To the north and east of the park are two of the best remaining examples of colonial architecture in the entire country. To the east is the church, La Inmaculada Concepción, and to the north is a colonial fortress know simply as 'El Fortín'.

International TEFL and TESOL Training (ITTT) offers a four-week TEFL certificate course in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica. Manuel Antonio is located on the central Pacific coast, just south of the city of Quepos in Puntarenas province, and 132 km from the national capital of San Jose.

Our TEFL certification program provides participants with an internationally recognized certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language.

The course is externally validated and moderated by the BOAA (Board of Academic Advisors), and has a very practical emphasis and features a high proportion of actual teaching practice hours in the classroom.

Teachers are assessed on their understanding and practical application of the course content through teaching practice and the compilation of a teaching journal. These two are assessed separately but the final grade awarded amalgamates both sets of grades with a slight weighting towards teaching practice.

Job guidance and support is provided throughout your teaching career. This includes access to online downloadable materials and lesson plans as well as online chat and teaching guidance.

The School of Teaching ESL (S-TESL) is located in the Licton Springs neighborhood in North Seattle, Washington.

In conjunction with Seattle Pacific University, The School of Teaching ESL has created a cooperative agreement that gives students several choices regarding professional development in teaching English to speakers of other languages (TESOL).

There are many good, practical courses leading to a certificate in teaching English. Ours earns post-baccalaureate credit from Seattle Pacific University, which many students find advantageous. The certificates are issued by Seattle Pacific University.

With pre-planning, these credits can apply to a future master's degree in TESOL. More than 3,500 certificates have been awarded since 1985, so most local administrators, and many overseas administrators, are familiar and pleased with the training their teachers got at S-TESL.

The School of Teaching ESL emphasizes decision-making, and the knowledge you need to make the many decisions you will be required to make in your teaching career.

The 900-level education credits from Seattle Pacific University and the Certificate in TESOL awarded by Seattle Pacific University will always be of value on your resume.
