Our Story

The course we designed to run a few times a year but now runs monthly

Live TEFL Prague was founded in 2013 as a part of Spěváček language school. Because we are growing rapidly as a language school, we are constantly looking for new English teachers to cover the growing portfolio of the courses we offer. Unfortunately, we have had mixed experiences employing teachers fresh from TEFL courses. While they usually have a solid knowledge of TEFL theory, their practical skills are often inadequate. Some applicants have even spent their money studying online TEFL courses which don’t incorporate a practical teaching component at all.

So we decided to develop a course addressing this lack of practical skills and really prepare students for the reality of teaching English. By having the opportunity to consult with experienced English teachers, work with real students, and get personalized feedback, our graduates are ready to teach a wide portfolio of courses using modern, interactive and creative English teaching methods.

Moreover, the Job Guidance included in the course ensures our graduates enter the TEFL world with a prepared demo lesson, competitive CV and finely honed interview skills. The opportunity to network with in-service teachers and experience the environment of a real language school gives our students a great advantage on the English teaching market. We back this up with a fully-equipped teacher’s room, with an extensive library.

Spěváček group

Live TEFL is part of the third biggest language school in the Czech Republic

We at SPĚVÁČEK pride ourselves in providing high quality language services — be it in teaching, training, coaching, interpreting, translating or proofreading. A significant part of our operation is focused on teaching English to corporate clients and the general public in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

Spěváček language school currently has 320 teachers from a variety of countries, most of them teaching English in Prague. As the demand for English teachers is consistently high, our school employs several new full time and part time English teachers every month. Trainee assessment during the TEFL course is so intense and in depth that we are able to make a job offer to many of the trainees immediately after the course, doing away with the need to attend a formal interview.

The fact that we have a 100% satisfaction rate with all of the teachers hired directly from the TEFL course demonstrates that the Live TEFL course is probably the longest and most effective job interview ever.

Internationally Accredited

Certificates for our graduates are recognized worldwide

To give our students the opportunity to travel the world and teach English wherever they choose, we are internationally accredited.

Live TEFL Prague is externally validated and moderated by International Accreditation of TESOL Qualifying Organisations (IATQuO). Annual inspections evaluate if our course meets quality standards in five key areas – course content and balance, observed teaching practice, qualification and experience of tutorial staff, premises and resources, and course length.

The certificates for all trainees successfully completing the Live TEFL Prague programme are issued by IATQuO, which means that your certificate is recognised worldwide. As most reputable EFL schools now insist that new teachers are qualified with an accredited (externally validated) TEFL/TESOL certificate, you will find that our internationally accredited certificate comes in handy.
