The 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 José. 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.
