All our teachers are university-educated teachers with many years of experience teaching in various types of public and private schools. Czech teachers are members of the Association of Czech Language Teachers; all teachers participate in various trainings and workshops. In addition, the quality of teaching is continuously monitored by the Centre's management.
Students have the opportunity to use the consultation hours of their teachers and to ask for an explanation or addition to the curriculum at any time. Students are included in classes for teaching Czech: each class is taken care of by a class teacher, who deals with students in all organizational and personal matters within the classroom hours or by appointment at another time.
Teachers treat students as future university students: they expect and anticipate motivation, active cooperation, independence, and maximum commitment in preparation for lessons. During the year, students should also get used to the fact that personal commitment and responsibility are the basis of their future success.up
