"Everything was great! Applying to TEFL Heaven was an impulsive decision for me but easily the best I have ever made. If you're at all questioning whether to do it or not.... DO IT. You won't regret it!"

− Naomi Thompson



The TEFL course in Prague consists of 4 weeks TEFL training, 130 contracted hours and 8-10 hours of teaching practice. Once completed you gain a TEFL Certificate, meaning afterwards you are qualified to teach English anywhere in the world.

It is a great way to see the world and earn at the same time.


Accommodation assistance is given for the 4 weeks of the TEFL training. If you choose our recommended accommodation, it is situated in the city centre and close to the training centre. A shared apartment with a single room is around 350 Euros for 30 days and includes wireless internet.

Should you choose to find your own accommodation then that is fine as well, as long as you make it on time to class every day. Wherever you stay, you will enjoy the architecture, night-life and atmosphere of this great city.


Most teaching placements are with private language centres and so you will be teaching all age ranges from children to adult, but mostly adult classes or individuals. Sometimes you might travel to a private appointment at a business or stay at the language centre for a group class – it really does vary.

You will normally be paid by the hour and you can expect to earn 800 – 1300 USD per month. Living costs are around 800 USD per month. The more hours you do, the more money you can make and many teachers commonly find private work as well as their normal job, which pays a lot more than group classes and gives them that extra boost to save a bit more.


If you are a member of the EU, there is no need for a visa. For those not EU citizens, you will need to apply for a visa after 3 months of being in-country. For this visa you need to do two short trips to a Czech embassy outside of the Czech Republic, and show 5600 Euros or equivalent in a bank account in your name. It also has to be a Czech bank in Czech crowns. You also can have someone deposit into your account for the purpose of the visa, and then send the money back one week later.


It is important to make friends who can support you during your time in the country and who can make your time there much more worthwhile. There will be another 7 or so other trainees on your TEFL course, and so it is easy to make friends.

Prague has an amazing night-life and so it’s easy to unwind and relax after classes have finished for the week. Many of the people you train with will stay friends long after training and long after teaching English in Prague has finished.


Prague is one of the most popular destinations to teach English in Europe because of its inviting culture, safe city environment and low-cost of living. Apartment rentals, transportation and food are at a low-cost.  You can normally save a little each month with your salary and should you find private students your spending can obviously increase as well.

There are other ways to save more money as well – living with a friend can cut your accommodation costs in half as well as your bills, and not eating out at restaurants as much will obviously mean less spending as well. The lure of Prague’s night-life and the social scene does make it hard though, and you might find yourself out every weekend enjoying getting to know Prague and the locals!

Don’t discuss politics!

Along with countless restaurants Prague has numerous pubs and clubs, selling Czech beer, famous around the world, for only about 1.50 Euros, which is cheaper than water in some places. National parks, exploring the Old town and Prague Castle are among favourite things to do. Prague is known as a romantic city and there are many places to relax and take a break from teaching.
