Exciting Opportunity Teaching EFL in Costa Rica

Date posted:2018-10-25 | Writer: Instituto Estelar Bilingue | Email: [email protected]

As a TEFL teacher, you will find that Instituto Estelar is a bit different from other language institutes. Rather than hiring hourly employees who live independently and come to work at various times, we are building a community of teachers and staff who are committed to the Estelar lifestyle of teaching, learning, and living cooperatively. We provide various residences where our teachers live, work, socialize, and relax. We have a school where we teach classes to both adults and kids. We host many events and activities in the community for free. We volunteer as part of an organization called Club A that helps kids in an underserved neighborhood in our city

Instituto Estelar is a mid-sized English/Spanish school with 460 English students and 11 English teachers. Our work environment is upbeat and organized. The city of Liberia is walkable, safe, and close to beaches, volcanoes, and many other natural attractions.

We offer a 9-month contract, help with work visa, health insurance and housing provided. Teachers must have a C2 level of English (native level speaker), hold a minimum of a bachelor’s degree, and possess a TEFL, TESOL or CELTA certificate.

We encourage a healthy work-life balance, and teachers work 24 hours per week teaching English, leading language activities for the community, and doing special projects. The workweek is Tuesday afternoon through Saturday evening, and everyone gets Sundays and Mondays off. Teachers often travel together to nearby beaches, waterfalls, and national parks.

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching.


Each class will have to be organize compare to the type of students we are teaching. Their needs, from the different types of beginners, the type of activity and energy needed compare to the age of the group. Or their motivation and inspiration for businesses. it would requires a different planning, materiel and great empathetic skill to always ensure the motivation of the students.When I teach, three topics are future simple, Going to future and present continuous. I hardly ever reach to the level where I teach future perfect and future perfect continuous. After leaning those, I am more confident that I can teach those topics to my students. By taking this course, I feel I am concreting the knowledge more than before. I am very happy that I took this course.
