  • Description

    Description

    This is an opportunity that offers you:
    o A chance to meet with and learn from interesting people from Central and Eastern Europe
    o Invaluable teaching experience
    o A free stay in a beautiful countryside resort
    o A week full of memories, new friends, and an introduction to a new culture.

    We are an English language immersion programme, enabling language and cultural exchange between native English speakers and Czech participants.

    All you have to do is come here, relax and converse with our local participants in English on a variety of interesting topics - it's a great way to get to know a culture by meeting the people who live it every day. We have two different programmes to choose from:

    • Adult: one-on-one discussions about wide-ranging subjects, along with creative group activities

    • Junior: similar to Standard, but catering to a younger demographic from thirteen to eighteen. On the volunteering side, it is perfect for university students or recent graduates. The Junior programmes typically only take place in summer.

    Once you are on the programme, we provide:
    • free accommodation + food for the length of the program.
    • a free tour (with lunch included) of Prague.
    • free transportation from Prague to the programme venue and back.
    • an invaluable experience to build relationships with with local people.

    If you are interested in staying with us for more than a week please advise us that you would like to attend multiple dates.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Workawayers who join us will have an opportunity to meet a fun and interesting group of people from the Czech Republic, with people of varying ages, professions and backgrounds. It's a good way to get to know the country by meetings its people, and if you've been thinking about teaching English then it might help you decide if that kind of career might be for you.

    Our participants can offer all kinds of local insights - from learning about the Czech Republic's communist past and the break-up of Czechoslovakia, to the best tourist spots, bars or sights to visit on a trip through the Czech Republic.

    Our project is great for Workawayers looking to meet local people as well as fellow travellers - it's a chance to relax and build some new friendships with people from the Czech Republic as well as with other volunteers from across the English-speaking world!

    Our programmes all take place in beautiful venues in the Czech countryside, so it's a great opportunity to escape from the main tourist spots and take in some of the beautiful scenery in the Czech Republic like the Krkonoše Mountains and Buchlov Castle.
