Oxford TEFL was a fantastic way to integrate into the teaching community in Prague. The 4-week course not only trains you to be a competent and confident English teacher, but it also introduces you to other teachers in the area. The staff are super supportive and care about your experience and helping you find a job after you finish, utilizing their network not only in the Czech Republic but all around the world, depending on where you want to go. My cohort had 12 people in it, and at the beginning the majority of us were planning to take the course and move elsewhere, but after becoming such good friends and falling in love with the city, nearly all of us decided to stay for a year after. The housing that Oxford provided during the course also allowed us to get our feet on the ground in Prague and take our time to search for something more long-term after.
So not only were the course and staff helpful for preparing us, but we also found a community in each other. Even though most of us have moved on since, the people I met there 6 years ago are still good friends today. That experience will last a lifetime!
