Hello, all! I'm moving to Costa Rica on August 5th of this year! I'm doing to Costa Rica TEFL training course in Samara from Aug 8 - Sep 2 then hoping to find work as soon after that as possible.

Anyone else moving to CR this summer?

Any helpful hints/tips you can provide to help make the transition easier would be greatly appreciated.

For those who have lived in CR, what was your favorite thing? What was your least favorite (or most unexpected) thing?

I look forward to hearing back from everyone!

Hi there! I'm seriously considering doing this as well, but am still kind of learning. I was deciding between the place you are going and the Center for Teacher Development in San Jose... I will let you know what happens. Good luck! Smile

Hello!

I am also moving to CR in August, I land August 18 and I am taking a TEFL course as well. I'll be doing mine in San Jose. Which school are you taking yours with? Are you staying after the course for a while?

Maybe us newbies can get together and tour the city! I'm from Canada and I'm hoping to stay for a year or possibly longer depending on the teaching situation.

Cheers Smile

Hi,

I'm also thinking about doing the Samara TEFL course, in October though. It'd be great to hear how your experience is and how your job search goes.

Good luck!

Hello

Any follow up to this thread now that we're a couple years down the line?
I'd really like to hear if you guys found work after your TEFL course, if you stayed in CR long, if you enjoyed your experience etc...

Many thanks
