It is very difficult for me to put into words how good was the October 2017 programme. All I can say is it was fantastic. As a native speaker I enjoyed the company of the other native speakers ( the native speakers were drawn from North America (both the USA and Canada), Australia and UK). As a result the students could hear a number of different accents. The Czech students were keen to improve their English. The hotel and food were brilliant. We worked hard but it was enjoyable, and there was time to socialise !!!
I would very much like to return and be part of your future programmes. If it would assist please feel free to give out my contact e-mail to any potential students or native speakers if they want to contact me direct.
"ENGLISHstay has been a wonderful and rewarding experience! The people are friendly and the program was a lot of fun!
I learned invaluable lessons from many of the students and volunteers. I originally delved in without any expectations, but by the end of the program it definitely exceeded all of them!" - Frankie Frank
Hi Tom! Your program far exceeded our expectations! We loved meeting and working with everybody that came to improve their English. We also learned so much from them! Looking forward to doing this again sometime in the future! Thanks for everything!
I really didn’t know what to expect on the English stay program, and was a little bit nervous and excited at the same time.
I had no idea it would be such an enjoyable experience! We made many new friends, both on the English speaking team and on the student side. In speaking with the students, we learned a lot about the culture in the Czech Republic, and even learned a few Czech phrases. Both the teachers and students put in a lot of hard work, and it seemed to pay off well. I hope we were able to help them get more comfortable with their English.
It was a very intense week. We all worked hard and played hard together. I never made so many new friends so fast, nor did I laugh so much in a single week as that one. It was one of the most unique and enjoyable experiences I’ve ever had.
Please feel free to quote anything from this note, or from the post on my Facebook page:
NEVER HAVE I EVER.....
- Met and made so many new and wacky friends so fast.
- Had such a unique and memorable birthday (and I've had a lot of them!).
- Laughed almost continuously for an entire week with my crazy new friends.
- Had such an a unique experience...
....as I had when Pam and I participated in the EnglishStay.CZ program. It was the first time we had such an experience, one we hope to repeat many times in the future. We even learned some Czech phrases in the process!
I did have some suggestions about things that might improve the course itself. I’ll follow up with those in another few days as I get caught up.
Thanks again for the opportunity to be involved in such a rewarding adventure.
Omg!! Only a few sentences? EnglishSTAY is a chance of a lifetime. It's an opportunity to use games, drills and projects to improve the English of the students. I was nervous at first because I'm not a teacher with a degree, but I was impressed with the level of knowledge they already had. It was so comfortable and yet still challenging. The location was scenic and serene, with many hidden jewels. I can't wait to come back next year!
I was on the program for one week in August, and it was one of the best English courses/programs I have attended. The location was a picturesque village in Cheb, and we visited a nearby spa town.
But the people...
I met a lot of amazing people, both native English speakers and students, and really they made the program worthwhile. The organisation was perfect, and to top it all off the food served during meal times was also good 🙂
I would recommend this camp to volunteers or any English speakers, and to anyone wishing to improve their English skills whilst having a lot of fun!
Many thanks to the two Lucies, and Tom!!!
It really was a great week with you guys! 🙂
I liked the idea that we could sit outside, or walk around the village. That was enjoyable on sunny days. Thank you for the opportunity to serve. I enjoyed you and Lucie and of course, Stephan! He is such a Love! The other Lucie was of great help to all of us.
EnglishStay was an incredibly rewarding experience. I made great connections and lifelong friends. In just a week, we felt like a big family! It was clear that all the students improved their English dramatically, and the volunteers became more confident as teachers and more informed about Czech culture. The coordinators, Tom and Lucie, worked insanely hard to make sure every day went smoothly and everyone was engaged. I thank them for an unforgettable experience, and hope to join them again!
I love EnglishStay! It's a great way to get immersed in the Czech culture and really get to know some local people. As a traveler, this can sometimes be difficult to do, especially if there is a language barrier. The other volunteers are fun and interesting to meet too. In the daytime, the conversations are structured, but in the evenings the speaking is much more relaxed. It's nice to have it both ways. I was surprised that we never ran out of things to talk about.
I recommend this program for anyone who is visiting the Czech Republic. It's a great way to get beyond the tourist zone and to have an authentic experience with the people and the culture.
EnglishStay is one of the most rewarding experiences I've had. So rewarding, in fact, that I've volunteered four times in the last year. The program is a lot of fun and you get to meet interesting people from the Czech Republic and also volunteers from all over the world.
When the program was over, I wanted to stay in contact with the people I'd met. We became friends. EnglishStay is a unique experience and I recommend it. The organizers Luci, Lucie, Tom and Štěpánek are some of the nicest and most genuine people you'll ever meet. -- Alejandro Ruiz-Corona, USA
I was very fortunate to participate in the English Stay program in May. It was an amazing experience that I will always remember. I loved working with the students who were so eager to improve their English. The look on their faces when they grasped a concept or learned the pronunciation of a new word was so rewarding. I loved the flexibility of being able to tailor the program to fit the students needs. Everything is very organized and the bond between the students teachers just grows every day. One of my most favorite moments was when one of the students took me on a tour of Boskovice and said afterward how he loved that he had to think in English to communicate with me, and how beneficial it was to have to say and translate new words he had never said in English before. It's a moment I will never forget. Tom and Luci are a joy to work with and they truly care about everyone attending the program. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to experience what giving back looks like. I will definitely volunteer again!!
Wow what a week thank you so much Tom and Lucka for excepting me they are phenomenal organisers and wonderful parents too the cutest baby ever. This is an amazing course its so well structured, I made some great memories and friends for life at this course I enjoyed every second of it and would love to join again in the future I was well looked after and could not recommend this course enough.
I also learned a lot about the Czech culture and about myself, don't worry if your afraid that you wont be able to teach because you will develop your own teaching method's and you will see yourself and your students grow.
Shout out also to Luci and Gus for there great help all week
Thanks again take care
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
