The Language House TEFL

The Language House was a great program to get me started in Prague. I feel like they set me up for success in living and teaching in Prague or anywhere else abroad. The community is very strong and supportive and I have made many lifelong friends through they connections from the Language House.
Teaching hours were helpful

We spent a lot of time actually preparing lesson plans and teaching during the course, which I think was really helpful. There is really no way to learn how to be a teacher without having some sort of classroom experience, and The Language House provides a lot of opportunity to improve your teaching ability. They help you to see teaching as a skill that can be improved, and they work with you to make that happen.

The Language House Prague is a fast paced rollercoaster full of adrenaline to ease the anxiety of living abroad. Although it is jam packed into 4 weeks, the people that enroll leave with knowledge that can be applied for years. The staff is so exceptional that I wouldn’t be able to pick a favorite person that works there. They don’t just teach you skills in ESL, they provide housing during the 4 weeks, give resources to jobs, and make the Visa process simple and stress free. You will leave this course feeling confident for the months to come. You will get to know every one of your fellow peers and they will feel like family. Yes, it is intense at times but if you just take a deep breath and just do what’s asked, you’ll survive until the end. The course even begins with several tours of the beautiful city of Prague, you’ll learn their culture, and you’ll even learn a little bit of Czech. Have a fear of public speaking? You’ll feel much more confident after practice lessons with actual Czech students. Worried culture shock? You will be immersed in a group of peers to help you fit in. Don’t have teaching experience? As long as you are fluent in English and have a good work ethic you’ll be set. Seriously, you’ll be doing something that you would never think you were capable of. There’s nothing bad that I could say this program and it’s worth every penny. The Language House Prague is an experience that has changed my life forever.

Highly effective and dynamic staff who take an interest in their students - Demand high standards but are achievable! Great package that I believe is hard to beat - having been a registered school teacher in Australia years ago I personally learnt and refreshed a great deal that I had forgotten at University all those years ago. Highly recommended!

Being a non native English speakers and having worked in an international school for 4 years, taking the TEFL course at the Language House has been one of the best decisions towards my educational and professional development I've made recently. Not only it helped enhance and boost my teaching skills, but also provided me with new teaching ideas and methodology that I can integrate in my teaching style.
The greatest advantage of the Tefl Language House is the staff and teachers. They are available almost 24/7 to assist with lesson planning and assignments but also to provide their valuable help and experience regarding life in the Czech Republic (finding a job/housing, everyday life tips). The morning lessons fully prepare the students and make them ready to teach English to real Czech students in the afternoon. In this way, the students finish the course armed with effective teaching methods, tools and teaching experience in a real classroom.
I would recommend the Tefl Language House to anyone who aspires to become a skillful English teacher and wants to study in the most beautiful city of Europe, Prague!

It was great. The staff was knowledgeable and helpful. The alumni network available afterwards is priceless. The visa support service is also invaluable. I would give my experience with The Language House a 10/10 every time.
New life abroad
Submitted by Alexis Lindsay - Prague Czech Republic | December 30, 2017
It was great. I received lots of support from The Language House Staff. There is a Language House alums page and that is where I found plenty of employment opportunities. They really support you and have created an excellent alumni network to get your life started abroad.
Great course, great guidance, great program
Submitted by Chris Brooks - Prague Czech Republic | December 30, 2017
I took this course a few months ago just to work on getting a freelance visa here in the Czech Republic, but what I got was much more. We were taught everything we needed to know to succeed as English teachers anywhere in the world, including an extensive review in English grammar, which is something none of us really thought for several years. We were given an excellent framework from which we could build our own lesson plans which I am still using today. They were a bit rigid in using this plan during the student teaching sessions, but it's understandable since most people coming through the program are inexperienced teachers they need drilling to help them through the first few weeks of teaching after the course. Job assistance is great. I was a bit apprehensive finding work with so many people going through the program each year but I see job postings so frequently and landed the first opportunity I applied for. I've asked around this as well and within 2-3 months most people are in a pretty good groove with respect to work and life. TLH also has events throughout the year to connect you with other grads, and everyone I've met through these events are very nice people. Also, the beer is cheap.

The Language House TEFL WAS such a great experience. The course was challenging but fun. I learned a lot of useful techniques and made many connections with people around Prague. The alumni community is strong which helps new teachers adjust to living and working in Prague as well as the support from the staff. I would highly recommend The Language House Tefl.

The Language House was an amazing decision! Amazing and knowledgeable staff, great alum network, and they are always willing to answer any question you have. All of my jobs in Prague were a direct result of their alumni Facebook group - which is very extensive and ever-growing!
