In Response To: SIT TESOL Costa Rica (A.J.)

Yes! I took my course there in 2008 and can't say enough good things. I can't imagine teaching without the things I learned while getting my certificate. I don't know what the important factors are for YOU, but here are some of the reasons why it was right for me.

1) The teaching style used by SIT trainers (as opposed to other TESOL certificates) models highly reflective, meaningful, and autonomy respecting teaching methods.
2) Centro Espiral Mana in Costa Rica (as opposed to other SIT sites) specifically is an ideal learning environment, and forms a sweet learning community within a small town that has positive relationships with those seeking their certification.
3) The trainers are amazing. Dynamic, compassionate, enrapturing, skilled.
4) The training is infinitely useful. You don't simply learn a series of scripted activities but instead develop the vision of how to gauge and support students learning. The framework for knowing how and what to teach is invaluable.
5) It costs (or did when I took it) a weeeee bit less than the TESOL Cert from other SIT programs in different countries. This should NOT be a driving factor, but it was A factor for me.

There are many many many more reasons why to study with SIT specifically, but I'm not sure if your question is about the location of the course or about SIT itself. I give the TESOL Cert rave reviews, and especially at the Costa Rica site.
