Czech Bilingual Children ClubCreative place where children learn Czech through games, stories and art
Do you have bilingual children and find teaching them Czech difficult?
Join our Czech children club in SW London
At the Czech Language Club, children teach children. Through this unique method the tutor enables children to communicate efficiently and to learn how to teach each other. The result: under the guidance of the teacher, children are given the responsibilities and skills to learn from one another. They are motivated to help each other to learn Czech through play and active interaction. They are encouraged to develop a strong team spirit and a sense of cultural belonging at the same time. Children of all ages and all language abilities are put together to create a naturally functioning learning environment. Join us, learn more about bilingualism and meet like-minded people.
“My son was learning Czech with one of their teachers and even at the age of 3 he really enjoyed his classes. Their tutors are professional, flexible, and deliver really well structured courses, which are fun and very personalised.”Alena

Czech through games
The language is taught exclusively through games and a wide range of physical activities. These include Czech gym, Czech dancing, Czech messy cooking, popular Czech games or Czech role play. At our club, children play and learn at the same time.
Children and parents
Both children and parents are actively involved throughout. The aim of the sessions is to enable everyone to have as much fun as possible. We help to reinstall bilingualism in families where the Czech language is not frequently spoken.
Czech through stories
Our goal is to promote and maintain Czech cultural traditions and customs. Children can enjoy Czech storytelling and explore famous Czech cartoon characters, like Krteček or Pat a Mat, through stories, fairytales, songs, or DVDs.
We want to improve and develop existing bilingualism in children with a passive knowledge of Czech. Our goal is to help them become confident and active speakers who can feel comfortable when they visit their grandparents or speak to friends.
“Excellent tuition in a comfortable environment – Highly recommended if you or your children would like to improve Czech language skills.”Lee
