Our Language School in Prague offers expert training for those wishing to live and work in Prague or abroad as an English teacher. What makes this program special is the amount of teaching practice offered on the course - nearly twice the amount as most courses worldwide. The course also covers grammar intensively and offers excellent job assistance with most graduates finding work with respected schools in the city even before the course ends.
Another key feature of the course is that it is completely teacher run. Everyone who works in the course is a teacher and all decisions from the cost to the content was designed by teachers. This means that you not only will get a great training, but you will also be in a caring and friendly environment. The Language School is not just a training center, they are a community.
The course is broken up into two main parts. These are input sessions of TEFL methodology and English grammar and actual teaching practice. Input sessions deal with learning the core principles of modern EFL methodology. On the course you will learn how to plan lesson, how to teach the four main skills of English, how to effectively teach grammar, how to correct error and the whole host of other important skills. You will also learn about different theories of language learning and how to apply them in the classroom.
Teaching Practice is what makes this course really stand out from others in this area. The Language House offers nearly twice the amount of actual teaching practice to groups of real students. You will even get the opportunity to teach people that can hardly speak a word of English. While this may seem daunting if not impossible without knowing the students language. We will instruct on the methods that make it possible.
The work load is demanding, but graduates of the course leave with the training and confidence needed to make it as an English teacher. All of this is Coupled with a great location right behind the national museum in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. This is a highly recommended teacher training program by both graduates of the course and hiring schools in the city.
