Nicaragua’s numerous volcanoes, rivers and lakes have truly earned it the nickname of ‘The Land of Lakes and Volcanoes’. Largely undiscovered by tourists and retirees, Nicaragua is the best kept secret in Central America. However, over the last few years tourism has doubled and with it the demand for qualified English teachers.
Our 190 hour program doesn’t just examine the theory of teaching but also gives the opportunity for hands on experience. During 6 or more teaching practices students will visit one of the poorest parts of Granada and teach some of the most disadvantaged children in the region. Students will be guided through their lesson planning, peer observed during the practice and receive feedback from one another after class. This creates a very supportive environment to learn in whilst also being a very rewarding experience and benefit to the local community.
Accommodation options in Granada are varied and we have a number of options we can help organise for you.
We have ongoing established relationships with a variety of accommodations in Granada, all of which are within easy walking distance of the school. Our first choice however would be a homestay as this gives back to the community and offers a quiet environment for you to study in during your course.
The local families we work with offer our students clean, comfortable and affordable accommodation in a typical Nicaraguan home environment, giving you the opportunity to brush up on your Spanish. Our homestay options are the cheapest of our accommodation options and include breakfast, lunch and dinner every day during your stay.
A home-stay is a great way to experience life with a local Nicaraguan family and to support the local community with all the money going to your local family.
After graduating from the course, our job service will help you put together your CV and practice interviews with you. Through our many established relationships with schools and employers we will help setup introductions for you and get you started on your new, rewarding adventure!
