What do we offer

Language teaching programs for children and adults in Prague.

Lessons for kids

Educational programs for kids have been compiled with regard to age and knowledge of students. Lessons are held so as to take the innate abilities of children into account in order to learn a foreign language and naturally develop their communication skills.

Courses for international exams for children and adults

As part of the preparatory courses for the international IELTS, PET, FCE, CAE exams, we prepare children, young people and adults for the Cambridge exams at the British Council. The lessons are being taught by experienced Czech teachers in tight cooperation with native speakers while using special study materials.

Language and methodology training for teachers

As part of further education of pedagogical staff we provide the English language and methodological courses for primary school teachers accredited by the Ministry of Education of the Czech Republic. These are being led mainly by native speakers.

Online zoom courses

Group or individual courses for children and adults take place according to the schedule using the ZOOM platform, which, thanks to the possibility of sharing screens offers, in addition to personal contact, almost all the various possibilities that are common in teaching in person.

About us

Our language school has been providing services to a wide range of clients since 2005. Currently, we specialize mainly in lessons for children that are being conducted in preschools and elementary schools and are being led by native speakers. We offer preparatory courses for international exams (IELTS, PET, FCE, CAE) for children and adults – both individual and group courses. As part of further education of pedagogical staff, we offer accredited language and methodological training courses for primary school teachers, once again, led by native speakers. We offer these courses in two versions – full-time classroom sessions in person or the online form.

Differently than you´re used to
Language teaching at Alternativ CZ is based on the premise that anyone can learn a foreign language. It does not matter what your age is, nor does it matter what you do for a living or what schooling you have received previously. Because everyone learns languages in a different fashion, we don´t indiscriminately use the same method for everyone. We draw on a wide range of teaching methods to make the lessons fun and engaging with mind to improving each student´s language skills. The guarantee of success is derived from our qualified and experienced teachers, especially our native speakers.
  1. modern and progressive methods
  2. high efficiency of teaching
  3. teaching in person and online lessons
  4. individual approach
  5. qualified and pleasant teachers

Our teachers

We work mainly with native speakers who are both qualified and experienced in modern teaching methods and can inspire students in a unique way to easily learn a foreign language. All of our teachers have a university degree; in addition, they also have completed the TEFL methodological course focused on children and adults. Our employees also go through a complex recruitment procedure and are carefully hand-picked.

They have said about us

After returning from abroad, our only goal was to allow our children to continue studying English. We were looking for a school where we could further develop their knowledge of the English language, but at the same time would place an emphasis on the Czech language. We have found all of the above and more in the primary school in Prague 5, where Alternativ CZ offers its English native speaker lessons. Thanks to experiencing the afternoon English sessions with enthusiastic young teachers, our children are now looking forward to going to school; they speak two languages and talk about Sean and Alex as members of our family. We as parents are satisfied with what we consider important for our children.

I am very happy that my children had the opportunity to start learning English at kindergarten. We were very pleased with the native speaker teachers there. At trial classes for parents, we were able to see that children enjoy lessons very much. The teachers were able to form a nice relationship with our kids. Everything was a game.
We were able to continue with the same lessons at our primary school in the afternoon sessions. We are very grateful for the whole term, because it gave our children a great foundation for their future.
