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!
One of the most rewarding weeks we have spent. The students were intelligent and very willing to share their experiences and culture. Lucy and Tom run a first rate operation. They are great!
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.
Creative minds and energetic bodies get their start with a hearty, tasty meal: food to fuel learning, laughter and fun. Today began with just that and ended with people from around the world going to bed as better people than they began it. The day featued an excellent mix of individual and group activities where native English speakers and students from the Czech Republic and Slovakia worked together in a relaxed setting at the plush Gold Hotel in Chotoviny. Every native speaker spends an hour each with several students, iindividually. The time is spent entirely in conversation. English Stay organizers provide topics which serve as guidelines for the conversations. It is then up to the native speaker how to develop and direct the conversations. This works well because it gives the teacher the flexibility to adapt the discussion to the abilities and desires of the Czech and Slovak students. During the conversation, teachers help students to strengthen their vocabulary, grammar, communication and confidence with their spoken English. Two group activities -- one before lunch, the other after dinner -- allow everyone to interact in enjoyable and thought-provoking exercises. The underlying theme is enjoyment and there is no doubt that not only is everyone enjoying their time together but also learning invaluable life and language skills at the same time.
This is an excellent program for both students and native speakers. As a native speaker and retired teacher from the United States, I experienced an ENGLISHstay program in April, 2016. During that time, I witnessed real progress toward the mastery of English in every one of the Czech students who participated. In addition, I had my own life much enriched! I intend to participate in another ENGLISHstay program later in the year."
My time spent teaching English in the Czech Republic was one of the most rewarding experiences I've been a part of in recent memory. In 6 days we put in 70 hours of work talking and talking and talking some more with the students, helping to perfect their grammar and conversation skills. it was incredibly enriching getting to know both the native and non-native speakers, learning about Czech culture, touring the local sights, and helping the students gain confidence speaking a second language. I'm so proud of their effort and so grateful for the time I was able to spend with both the teachers and the students. It's a memory I will cherish forever and ever.
