TEFL in Czech Republic
130-hour online TEFL course followed by a practicum in Czech Republic
Destination TEFL in Czech Republic
The capital of the Czech Republic is nothing short of stunning. From the Old Town Square to the Charles Bridge, any way you look at it, Prague will fulfill your wanderlust in more ways than one. For two weeks, you’ll practice teaching the English language, while also exploring the cultural and edible delights of this city - including strudel and Palačinky, a thin Czech pancake resembling a French crepe - in your free time.
During the weekdays, you’ll use your newfound TEFL knowledge teaching English in a Czech classroom. You’ll find this population of ESL learners to be engaged, ready to learn and full of life (and questions!). The weekends (and evenings) are yours to adventure and explore as you see fit, but in case you’re curious about a typical day in Prague…
