Program Overview

Program Description:

Teach in the Czech Republic with CIEE and experience a side of this beautiful country that is rarely seen by tourists. You'll become part of a community on the outskirts of Prague, working as an English language assistant in a primary or secondary school, all while learning about Czech culture and language. Host schools encourage language assistants to participate in cultural and athletic activities outside of the classroom. You might even be invited to join your students on school ski trips in the winter!

You'll teach English as a lead teacher or language assistant at a primary school to students ages 6-15. As a lead teacher, you will create diverse lessons to help your students learn how to read, speak, and write in English. You will be responsible for grading your students and running your classroom.
