My husband and I volunteered as mentors for the EnglishStay.cz due to the recommendations of previous mentors through one of my airline Facebook groups. We were intrigued by the chance to spend a week in the Czech Republic outside of Prague teaching English. The teaching experience was actually a rich cultural exchange which exceeded my expectations... We would volunteer again in a heartbeat. Thanks for the memories!

EnglishStay was an incredible experience. Each day it was easier as I became more comfortable in the setting and the teaching style. Those wanting to learn came with open minds and such eagerness to learn. I enjoyed every day seeing who I was paired up with, finding a quiet spot to practice their skills. The last day when they each stood up and presented their own personal 5-10 minute presentation I was filled with pride. You could see the excitement in their eyes and how proud they were to be able to present in English.
The program is run quite efficiently. The meals and drinks were superb. Thanks to the team everything was comfortable, fun and interesting.
I definitely have some other friends who would be interested in doing this also. I will highly recommend it and give them high ratings as being a good fit for the program.
The days were long and by the end I usually could not stay for the evening entertainment, that didn't seem to be a problem and I was happy that we weren't made to feel bad.
Thank you all for making this program available and I hope to return again.
I was so impressed with how well organized everything was. It was perfect, the transportation, the hotel and food, and overall opportunity to meet and talk to the students. I appreciated the daily topics and work sheets as they were very helpful.
You treated us so well, I do want to come back!
I did have one suggestion which came to me after the dream house activity. I wish we had tried more to bring in unusual words and possibly if our assignment had been to come up with at least five words that were unfamiliar to some of the students and then when presenting our house to the group- be sure to use those words in sentences. I know some new words did come up but I personally did not try hard enough to really think of some that are not commonly used
I clearly see why you are having such success with your program. I am happy I had the opportunity to participate. One student said they are now thinking in English so I believe that was a big accomplishment and they all seem to feel better about their English language ability.
The program was very rewarding for everyone, myself included!
Thank you for sharing your beautiful family with us. It was wonderful to meet finally, after months of communication.
This was an absolutely wonderful experience!!! Luci, Tom and their team were so helpful, well organized, and great fun. Their program gave us a chance to meet amazing people from Czech Republic and Slovakia! It was a great way to get to know a new part of the world. We made many new friends. Meeting and working with the other volunteers was another plus. The range of ages and experiences of the participants & volunteers made for an interesting and lively time. We'd love to come back.
Lucie and Tom gave me the opportunity to work with them which was an excellent experience :) I had such a great time with English Stay :) I am sure each one of us learned and explored a lot more about the locals. We learned so many things, a little bit of new language and more than that we had the chance to live the Czech life for a few days. All the students were amazing and it was such an amazing feeling to see their improvement after just few days. And I made friends and relations of a lifetime :) Every person had so much to offer and to inspire whether it was the teachers from different parts of the world or whether the students which were not limited to Czech republic. There were students from Sardinia and Slovakia as well :)
I would love to join them again in future :) Keep it up guys
This is such a great program! It's a perfect way to connect with Czech culture and to spend some time out of a big city. The food is fantastic and the teaching hardly feels like work at all. Luci and Tom were especially caring hosts, took good care of me when I was sick for the first 2 days :)
The EnglishStay program was a great opportunity for native english speakers and students learning english as a second language to come together and share cultures. I learned about some interesting aspects of Czech culture and enjoyed telling students about the culture in the United States. I think the week long immersive english conversation is a great way to improve your english as well as meet some truly fun and amazing people.
Thank you so much for allowing me to be part of this awesome program. It was so much fun! Really inspiring to work with so many sharp, intelligent young people. New friends made and wonderful memories. Good luck in the future programs
This past week @finchmeapinch , @ann_ofall_thebernans and myself took part in a week long English teaching program in the Czech Republic. It was truly incredible, in a world filled with so much hate and quick blind judgement it was so amazing getting to see all of these people from different ages and different walks of life all come together and just be happy humans: filled with laugher as we little by little broke through the barriers of language. I'm as proud to be American as they come but this week was a great reminder that we are ALL brothers and sisters in Christ and at the end of the day that's what it's all about. I am so thankful and so blessed to have had this opportunity and experience.
The most amazing helpx experience we have had so far! Lucy and Tom are incredible and the English stay program is so much fun. You really get to know everyone so well, teachers and students, when the program is over it's so hard to say bye to everyone. This was such a rewarding experience and we would do this again in a heartbeat.
The students were great! It was so rewarding to see everyone of them improve their English language capability as we moved through the week. The students pronunciation improved; their cadence and rhythm in speaking became more natural; their confidence in speaking soared. It was very rewarding bring part of this.
We had an absolutely wonderful week at the English Stay program hosted by Luci and Tom.
This was our first experience doing a Workaway that involved teaching and speaking with students wanting to learn English, however we found it comfortable and enjoyable right from the start.
The program includes many fun and educational activities which we really enjoyed.
Everyone was so friendly and we made many new friends with both the other volunteers and the lovely students. The accommodation and food was great and the program included a nice amount of free time to relax.
We really enjoyed hosting an Australian themed evening to teach everyone about our home country.
Thank you Luci and Tom for such a wonderful experience, we would definitely love to come back and join the program again one day.
Cheers, Sarah and Adam
I have just completed my second one-week ENGLISHstay English language immersion program and plan to return for a third next year. Through ENGLISHstay, as an English-speaking volunteer, I was presented with opportunities far superior to those generally afforded tourists. I spent two weeks, at no cost, one in April and the other in August, in a charming village in a program designed to help Czech students improve their English comprehension and fluency. During that time, I participated in a well-structured program of games and one- to -one and two -to- one conversational sessions between students and English-speaking volunteers. I was amazed at both the students' progress in one short week and the fun everyone had. Moreover, in the process, I forged and intend to keep many new friendships. ENGLISHStay is truly an unforgettable experience!
I taught English at the first English stay for kids! I had a really great time, the students were amazing and really eager to learn, the camp was great (with really wonderful food!) and Tom and Luci are incredible people. I would be happy to come back :) thank you both so much!
Spent a beautiful day in Chotoviny in the Czech Republic. I am doing volunteer work teaching English to the Czech people. The company is EnglishStay. I am so blessed to have been given this opportunity. I am learning so much from my students! Relaxed setting. I held one of my classes in a museum today. Good food. Tomorrow class is going to Tabor for sightseeing and of course conversations in English.😄
Volunteering with English Stay was awesome! The work was intense, but it paid off with meaningful connections with many Czech people. I learned a lot about Czech culture during our conversations and made friends. In the middle of the week we all went on a sightseeing trip to a spa town. There were silly games and printed handouts to help facilitate the conversations. After the program Tom and Luci gave us a tour of Prague, which was very nice. The food was very delicious, authentic and plentiful. The accommodation was spacious and comfortable. I hope to participate in this program again soon. It was rewarding to see the participants progress in speaking English.
Thank you Alejandro and Erin
April program with ENGLISHstay
I had a great time teaching English and spending time with these hosts, and other volunteers/ students in the program. It was hard work, but completely worth it, and enjoyable. I enjoyed helping the students grow, and even learn new things from them. The hosts are easy going, and very kind. I would definitely sign up again!
I had an wonderful time with these hosts, other volunteers and the students. It was a great experience to teach and watch their personal growth in speaking and self-confidence.
About the hosts, they are very nice and laid back.
I'd totally sign up again.
