The Language House is perfectly named. A house of love, acceptance, guidance, and encouragement. A house that is a home to thousands of students around the globe. In today’s world, it is difficult to get excited about anything. We fear scams. We fear being taken advantage of. We fear taking risks. We fear new social situations. We fear not getting the biggest bang for our buck. In other words, we live in a chronic state of fear. Well, fear not. I am not a robot. I am not a faculty or staff member or a relative of the founder. I am a real live TLH alumni who can vouch for this priceless gem.

The Language House has something for everyone. The instructors are no-nonsense but human. They are knowledgeable and hold students to high standards. Interestingly enough, there is still an atmosphere of camaraderie and mutual respect. The instructors are always willing to offer a helping hand before or after class. There are even optional weekend tutoring sessions/courses. The student teaching experiences are incredibly useful and builds on the knowledge and experience of each participant. The weekend excursions brought our eclectic family together and allowed us to build memories for a lifetime.

The Language House does it all and makes international travel easy. Housing, transportation, cell phones, grocery shopping, visas, all the little things that occupy our minds when imagining the unimaginable. TLH helps with every step of the process. From teaching conversational Czech and actually taking us to a supermarket to giving us maps and explaining the public transportation system. You are in able hands. Warm hands. The Language House is filled with great educators but more importantly great people. TLH requires a good balance of life skills. You will certainly have a great time but need to be disciplined enough to know when to reel in the good times to tighten up on school work.

The Language House has helped me immensely both personally and professionally. I am honored to have been part of such an amazing program. I met people from around the world and experienced having roommates for the first time in my life, :-).

Whether you enjoy dancing, karaoke, inexpensive adult beverages, beautiful architecture, or historic sites, Prague has something for you. More importantly, TLH treats their participants like honored guests. No matter how much beauty is around you, those in poor company will never truly enjoy their experience to the fullest. Have no fear, TLH is here. Their tour guides are one-of-a-kind. Authentic, down-to-Earth funny, and caring. I love the Language House. Without a doubt, my summer with The Language House was the best experience of my life. TLH gave me my wings and now, it’s my time to fly.

If you’re looking for something different or just a little something more out of your life, consider giving The Language House a shot!

This place is not a TEFL program that just churns out graduates like a factory and then forgets about them as soon as they graduate. The owner and staff of The Language House have built a COMMUNITY, unlike one that I have ever been apart of.

Every TEFL program you have/will look into will advertise amazing curricula, lesson planning, and so many hours practice teaching. It’s hard to find a place though that will support you every step of the way. TLH set you up with student housing, transport passes, Visa help (if you’re staying in Prague), TONS of job opportunities, and an orientation that helps you get to know the city, culture, and your peers. It’s the little things like these that made TLH stand out to me. I also never knew that I’d make so many close friends, from my classmates to the staff. Whatever you’re hesitance may be with taking an onsite TEFL course abroad, just ask yourself what you’d be getting out of a month staying at home versus taking the course. Prague is an amazing place to get you’re footing and The Language House has a vast network of alumni that can help you out as soon as you graduate!

“Where to start?” I thought that before the program and I find myself with the same question again for this review..

This program has offered me an experience of a lifetime. I have met and made some fantastic friends and memories that I will always cherish. As daunting as it is to throw caution to the wind and ‘jump’ the lasting sense of accomplishment that replaces fear is immeasurable. I am newly graduated from the course and had someone available to help me with any questions before, during and after the course. The direction and handling of everything from housing to transportation, course work, books and even job placement assistance is all there. I will say be ready to take a giant bite out of grammar and chew thoroughly but also savour it. There will be long days. Some (a lot) of stress but with a strong regiment and discipline, it is so manageable.

Pros: Everything really!

-Helpful and available staff

– Step by step help

– Visa help (that is a separate fee btw) but so worth it!

Cons:

-FB is used as the main source of communication during the course (though I believe that is being updated)

– Be ready for a lot of work in a short time period (don’t procrastinate!)

– Did I mention the work load?? 😉

Getting my TEFL certificate at the Language House was a fun, challenging, and worthwhile experience. Not only did I feel prepared to teach after the course ended, I felt as though the entire experience had made me a more independent person, better equipped to survive and prosper outside my comfort zone.

I recommend the course to anyone who is hesitant (as I was). You’ll find yourself surrounded by positive, supportive, and experienced instructors. Assistance is provided throughout the entirety of the course (and beyond). And you will probably wonder why you didn’t do it sooner.

JUST DO IT.

I was very comfortable at home with my job and Netflix but I felt something was missing. You’re probably wondering, “Should I just take the course from the comfort of my own home?” DON’T YOU DARE. I had the same thought. It was a bad one clearly. From the moment I applied, I was being taken care of. (This will be good for those of you who have worried mothers like mine.) Have questions? They answer them. All of them. I have graduated and I am still being taken care of by The Language House. Chris Westergaard and his amazing staff have created something truly spectacular right here in the heart of Prague. The perks to coming to Prague and studying with The Language House are infinite. At the end of the course we weren’t just given a certificate it was much more, filled with tears, laughter, and a new found family. Did I mention our community? It’s huge. We take you out and make sure you’re enjoying yourself! The course does get tough at times but you have support from EVERYONE. Remember you are bettering yourself and gaining an amazing experience with some pretty awesome people. Still wondering if you should take this course? Check out their YouTube channel, Facebook, and Instagram!

“Great things never come from comfort zones”

Cheers!

The Language house has a great team of trainers and reviewers. The course content is great and the team really aims to get the ESA across all throughout the course. When you are in classes you get to be really involved and feel like the students while learning the proper techniques. The lesson planning is great, the team is involved and helpful. The feedback on teaching is good, positive energy and good advice is always given on how to improve. Don’t forget to bring a usb stick to print so you don’t have to buy one while in Prague. I wish there was a color printer to make materials for students more fun and interesting!

I 100% recommend this program to anyone thinking about teaching abroad. The professors and staff are extremely helpful and involved throughout the whole experience. I learned so much about teaching and myself in such a small amount of time. It is so worthwhile!
