About

Our TEFL course is internationally accredited, validated and moderated by TEFL International, which is one of the largest and most respected providers of initial teacher training and certification.

We share our training facilities with Threshold Training Associates, one of the most established and respected language schools in Prague. You will therefore have the chance to meet our serving teachers in the staffroom and pick their brains about TEFL teaching and life in Prague or other cities.

Our social coordinator tailors the social and cultural program according to the interests and tastes of each group; starting with the welcome breakfast and a get-to-know-you dinner with the trainers, trainees and staff on the first day. The other possibilities include theater visits, pub crawls, tours of Prague and trips to surrounding cities, festivals, concerts and clubs.

Questions & Answers

I have to say that the program is great, they present very quality information to prepare someone to teach English as a foreign language! The people there are very nice, the teachers are brilliant and super helpful to newbies in Prague. As for finding work, I think there are lots of options if you are a native English speaker or speak English very clearly with little accent. Also, summer is the...

TEFL in Praha

The class of 3 trainees made the 4 wk training much more personal, with much more individual attention that crafted me in to a highly effective and efficient teacher. Each trainer at the facility was very highly skilled in all the areas I trained in, really instilling confidence in my learning and my teaching ability. The staff was top notch, my only concern was the instructions on the assignments because it really created unneeded stress during the final weeks of the training.

How can this program be improved?
Trainers and directors need to be clearer on instructions for expected assignments from the trainees - they briefly brushed over the assignments, did not really give us the scope of the seriousness of them nor the expected length of each assignment.
Yes, I recommend

Very Good Course

The course was pretty intensive, but it did help prepare me for teaching. The staff were very nice, and incredibly helpful. It was obvious that they cared about us and went out of their way to help in any way they could.

How can this program be improved?
I would have liked the opportunity to teach a little more, but overall the course was really well set up.

Unshakeable Foundation

I went into this program with passion but nothing else, so to come out of it four months later with the confidence and skills to teach English anywhere in the world is amazing. This school felt like a family to me. They were extremely dedicated not only to helping us succeed in our training but also to helping us adapt to our new lives abroad. The small classes were exactly what I needed to learn, as I was able to ask all the questions I needed and we were all given very individualized attention and feedback. This class was very authentic for the kind of teaching I will be doing and was executed in a way that made me feel comfortable despite learning all new skills in a completely foreign country.

How can this program be improved?
I think the most efficient way to improve the class as a whole would be if the various instructors created detailed lesson plans for themselves so that they can keep track of which assignments and reminders need to be passed onto the students at any given time. Just going through a detailed syllabus together at the very beginning of the course would help a lot to keep student and teacher expectations on the same level.

Very helpful in all situations

Diversity of trainees who were always well prepared, helpful and encouraging. Variety of classes which we had to teach. Individual approach to every participant. Friendly environment. I seriously felt almost like at home :-)
The organizers took us out for a dinner, guided tour, theatre...
Regarding students I was teaching, I especially enjoyed youths (abt 13yo).

How can this program be improved?
Encourage participants to try to teach all parts of the lesson (grammar, vocabulary, listening, speaking, writing, ...) during the course.

Prague TEFL

The overall experience with the Prague TEFL International program was great. It is amazing how much you can learn about a language that you just take for granted knowing how to speak. The location was easy to get and the staff was very knowledgable and helpful. The days seemed long, but the course went by quickly. We had ample amount of time and help with lesson planning and actually teaching lessons. I really enjoyed the opportunity to work with kids as well as adults. Prague itself is a beautiful city worth visiting and living in for some time. There are many opportunities to reach English here.

How can this program be improved?
The teachers to be more on the same page with the direction of the program and a little more organized. We experienced some confusion on what is to be done and when with a few assignments. Little more communication between staff and students.

TEFL Course in Prague made me more confident!

Starting from when I applied for this course, till when I got TEFL certified, TEFL Prague never left me alone. I got visa assistant from them, was picked up at the airport on my arrival to Prague and was taken to my place of accommodation by them. A tour was organized for me to get me accustomed to my route, so I can comfortably move around Prague.
At the training house, I got wonderful help from all the staff, and the course trainer was super nice to us all. He made sure we begin each morning with free tea or coffee. The training was intense and it made me a surer teacherbecause I was taught to first of all find out what my language learners' weaknesses are before planning befitting esl lessons for them.
Creating teaching materials by myself made me tensed at the beginning, but I later became perfect in doing that after my trainer spent time with me, guiding me on how to get it done. Notwithstanding, before comming to Prague, I could only teach children, but after my series of lesson plans and teaching practices on adults, I can now boldly teach adults, both in class and in "one to one" basis.
Thanks to TEFL Course in Prague, I am a better English teacher now.

How can this program be improved?
I would like to change the fact that there is no job guarantee after this course. Finishing the course with a job waiting for you would be great! My friends are actually ready to pay more as long as there would be a job waiting for them after the course.

A wonderful way to learn useful skills and see the sights

I found this course quite exceptional. The teachers and staff are all extremely knowledgeable and give realistic and helpful advice. They are also very friendly and approachable. There was no one time that I felt as though I was not in capable hands.
The course load was completely manageable, however the days were long and tiring. It is definitely a trail by fire, you teach your first lesson on day three of the course.

How can this program be improved?
The program from time to time gave the impression that not all of the teachers were on exactly the same page. So sometimes things got a little bit repetitive. Also, I could have handled a few more grammar lessons.
