Teach ESL in Costa Rica and Abroad

Located in beautiful Jacó beach on Costa Rica’s Pacific coast, you can study while having easy access to all of the country’s culture and physical beauty. As you prepare to teach English abroad you will be living the dream of staying at the beach at one of our beautiful, centrally located accommodation options in downtown Jacó.

This week, Corey opens the show with a brief rundown of his new private health insurance policy.  When having CAJA coverage is simply not enough, signing up for a plan that covers your medical needs both in Costa Rica and abroad is considered a must.  (Follow Corey on Twitter at @ThisWeekinCR)

Segment two brings Dan Stevens from the Costa Rican Times to discuss Johnny Araya bowing out of the presidential campaign, Solis’ talk of not hitting the carbon neutral goals set by the previous administration, Forbes opening offices in Costa Rica, and the national lacrosse team making their way to the world championships.  (Follow Dan on Twitter at @CostaRicanTimes)

For the second half of the program, Corey calls PanAm Post columnist and former Global TESOL director, Andrew Woodbury.  Andrew shares his continuing travels in ESL beyond Costa Rica with and overview of his new position teaching English in Toronto, Canada.  For many who receive certification to teach English abroad, the consideration for making it a career option at home is often overlooked.  Andrew shares his initial experiences teaching at home to foreign learners.  (Follow Andrew on Twitter at @A_W10)

Finally, Corey welcomes the new director and lead instructor at Global TESOL, Elizabeth Farrar.  Ms. Farrar hails from Springfield, Illinois and holds an MA in TESOL and degree in linguistics.  She shares some of her experiences as both and ESL teacher worldwide, as well as her thoughts on taking a new position training teachers in Jacó beach, Costa Rica.  (Follow Elizabeth on Twitter @GofarRar)
