What our teachers say about us?
I have worked with SPĚVÁČEK for eight years and during that time have been nothing but happy! They have a vast selection of teaching materials and a fantastic choice of clients and classes, from business and public courses to kindergarten and private tuition. The school also allows teachers to progress in their career by offering roles such as mentor positions, as well as running seminars to develop specific skills and aspects of teaching. The staff are courteous and supportive and have impeccable English skills which is great for teachers who have just moved to the Czech Republic. Teachers can also take advantage of the free Czech lessons available for beginners.
Neil, English teacher
Having been teaching aboard for over five years I had high expectations of Spevacek. Thus far Spevacek has met and exceeded my expectations. I was looking for a school that was well organized, with a well-developed flow of information, and a welcoming environment. The staff immediately filled my schedule, directed me to the correct places and always had a smile or a witty joke to share. The location of the main offices and the classrooms are so convenient that it hurts. There is a lovely area for teachers to share experiences, pass ideas and support each other and also the vast library. An entire wall of materials, and if there is something in particular they don’t have, they have always ordered it for me.
