This is just what I needed. I changed careers from being a banker and I would have been lost without these guys. This school prepared me for a wide range of students and environments. I landed a job in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan after this program. I had a smooth transition because of the depth that this course provides. They give you the chance to teach different types of students. There were young learners at the elementary/primary school age. There was a group of teens and preteens. There were groups of adults at varying levels. The school goes over theory and application. After the lessons you teach, you will get detailed professional feedback from instructors that know their stuff. The instructors are unyieldingly honest , but immensely constructive and supportive.
The instructors come from a variety of backgrounds and geographic locations. It is apparent that they were chosen because of their specialized skills, education, and accomplishments. There are Czechs, Native speakers, and others from other countries. They teach a wide range of English specialities and were available to answer questions and guide us. There will absolutely be an instructor that suits your learning style.
If you are looking to teach English at all this place is a no brainer. Definitely consider this place for professional development, especially if you have related experience or if you got an online certificate. The practice teaching you get makes the difference. The course packs a lot into those four weeks so when you do it, buckle up and be prepared. The beer and friendly staff in Prague will definitely help. The staff is truly approachable and they are great ambassadors to the industry. If you are looking for the first place to land after deciding to take the big career jump, look no further.
What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
Before I started the program I was overly concerned about finding work. The school had a partnership with a visa organization in Prague that took care of many of my peers. The school also elaborates on all the different sectors in the industry, which helped me decide where I wanted to go and what I wanted to do. It doesn't matter where you want to go, this is your point of entry into the industry.
