Private Czech Teacher

Ahoj! Would you like to learn something more in Czech than just how to order a beer (pivo) ?

Let's get serious (not only because Czech has 7 cases, really weird sounds -ř- and words without vowels!).

My lessons are structured and have a clear goal of what to learn by the end of the class. My primary focus is on speaking and using correct grammar in oral presentation while I give you written exercises to do as your homework. I like to use exercise books as well as online articles, videos (news) and different internet learning platforms. When classes are online, we will do a plenty of interactive activities, role-plays, dialogues, speaking games, etc.

About Eliska

I am an experienced ESL teacher, qualified interpreter and translator. I am a native Czech and new to the US. Studying interpreting and translation helped me to understand differences between the languages which I then applied when teaching my husband Czech. During my classes, you will feel enc

I have been taking Czech lessons with Eliska for 10 months. She is terrific!! Very knowledgeable, patient, and fun to work with. Initially my abilities were rudimentary, but with her teaching I was able to get around very well in the Czech Republic. Usually sends some additional work prior to the lesson, and returns corrected homework within a day or two. I would recommend her highly!

Very positive demeanor, which helps to learn when you might feel bad or self-conscious for butchering grammar/pronunciation, and fun to talk to. As a native speaker of Czech, she has a slight accent yet isn't difficult to understand, only had to stop to ask her for clarification two or three times over the course of an hour. Good pacing, was not overwhelmed but still remained engaged.

Before our first session even began, she was already helpful in providing some suggestions for culture to look up, such as popular artists in certain genres of music.

Then at the end of our first session,
she left me with a few straightforward assignments to learn from until our next lesson.

I've had a great first impression. I'll see where things go in the future. Děkuju, Eliška!

"Eliška is an outstanding teacher. She is always well-prepared. She tailors the instruction to my strengths and weaknesses, even adjusting the level as we work together during the class hour, so I assume she teaches each student in individually shaped lessons. And she makes each session interesting and practical! I highly recommend her."

Private Czech Lessons Near You

Czech is a West-Slavic language spoken by about 10 million people, who're primarily located in the Czech Republic. The United States Foreign Service Institute rates Czech as a Category III language. This means the institute considers it hard for native English speakers to pick up due to significant linguistic and cultural differences.

The Foreign Service Institute estimates average students will need about 44 weeks, or 1,100 class hours, of diligent studying to become proficient with the Czech language. Czech's Category III rating, an extensive list of strange consonant sounds, and numerous noun and verb forms scare away many would-be speakers. We encourage you not to be intimidated because learning Czech with the right teacher can be fun and exciting!

Why Learn to Speak Czech?

Czech's Category III ranking, however, is no reason not to study the language. We'll admit that there are plenty of simpler languages for English speakers to learn, but there are also lots of languages considered much more difficult. So, if you're interested in learning Czech for any reason — travel, business, heritage, in-laws, a love of the culture, or a taste for their cuisine — then we say go for it! When you start studying Czech with the help of a private Czech tutor, you'll learn much more easily than if you tried to learn it on your own. 

Learning Czech will help you if you want to learn Polish, Slovak, or Russian in the future. It's mutually intelligible with Slovak, though it might not be for much longer. Since the breakup of Czechoslovakia in 1993, the two languages have been drifting steadily apart. Visiting either country with the ability to speak Czech will make it easier to get around because outside of major city centers, like Prague, English is sparse. Knowing some Czech will ensure you don't miss your trains or any vital travel announcements. 

The Best Way to Learn Czech and What You'll Study in Classes

Although you can find loads of free Czech lessons and tutorials online, the best way to study is with a private Czech tutor. In private lessons, you'll receive your tutor's undivided attention and the sort of personalized instruction that simply isn't available in a larger class setting or in online videos. With immediate feedback, you'll overcome challenges quickly and learn Czech fast. 

Plus, every private lesson is different. Teachers customize each course, keeping in mind the student's interests, goals, existing knowledge, and preferred learning styles. For example, Czech classes for kids differ greatly in terms of teaching methods and content from Czech lessons for adults. Your private Czech tutor will keep you motivated and interested, while you learn at a pace that's comfortable for you. 

Sample Curriculum for Beginner Czech

If you have little or no previous experience speaking Czech, then beginner lessons will be perfect for you. In these courses, your teacher will introduce you to the basics. You'll build a strong foundation, as you become increasingly familiar with Czech. In beginner lessons, your teacher might cover the following topics:

  • Introduction to the Czech alphabet, orthographic principles, and pronunciation
  • Learn basic survival phrases in Czech
  • Singular and plural form
  • Introduction to the seven noun declensions and four basic verb conjugations

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Czech

Intermediate-level students should possess a fundamental understanding of the Czech language. In intermediate courses, you'll start to convey more complicated ideas and carry on more complex conversations, while expanding your grammatical skills and vocabulary. Your teacher might choose to cover the following subjects:

  • Verb tense and mood
  • Forming questions
  • Reading and listening comprehension
  • Irregular verbs

Sample Curriculum for Advanced Czech

Advanced classes are most appropriate for students who can almost speak fluently in Czech. In these courses, you'll work on reducing your accent, improving your fluency, and speaking more like a native Czech speaker. Subjects covered in advanced classes depend greatly on the student's individual interests and goals, but your teacher might cover the following topics:

  • Accent reduction
  • Understanding nuance and inference
  • Advanced composition
  • Culture, colloquialism, and customs

How to Find a Czech Teacher Near You

If you're ready to say ano (yes) to learning Czech, then it's time to find a Czech teacher near you! Luckily, TakeLessons makes finding a teacher easy! A simple search will lead you to a long list of highly qualified and experienced teachers who offer lessons online and in-person to students of all ages and abilities. Before choosing the teacher who's right for you, we recommend browsing several profiles and reading reviews left by other students. 

The cost of Czech classes varies, but most teachers base their rates on the length and frequency of lessons. With so many tutors to choose from, you'll have no problem finding one whose fees fit your budget. Plus, you'll find that investing in private lessons pays off fast, as your vocabulary and comprehension improve, you gain speaking confidence, and start speaking more like a native speaker after just a few lessons.
