Once upon a time...
… there was a group of teachers who joined forces to fight a horrible monster. A monster of boring language lessons! Because teamwork is the best work. And that’s what we do – we help you learn at your pace, keep it fun, relaxed, and focused on everyday Czech.
Slowczech is all about fun and community. Our values are firm and simple! We respect everyone’s needs, goals, and decisions, student and teacher alike. We will always be fair and honest with you, and with each other. We support all members of our community – students and teachers – in their goals and celebrate their successes. Because doing things together beats doing them alone!
What do Dyson, Fitbit, Spanx, and slowczech have in common? They were all created because their founders needed something that no one seemed to offer. So they took things into their own hands! Sir James Dyson created the first bagless vacuum cleaner. Sara Blakely created revolutionary shaping underwear. Our Eliška created a language learning method emphasizing fun, slow, bit-by-bit learning focused on the real language. And as with all great ideas, hers slowly grew into what slowzech is today – a team of teachers who share her vision and dedication, and a community of students who want to learn the real Czech!
Meet Our Team
That is, the core slowczech team who is here to provide technical support, play the matchmaker, and make sure everything works properly.
What makes us different?
We use a unique matching system to connect students with teachers for both one-on-one and group lessons. What makes it so unique? We ask everyone about their preferences in detail with our two-step approach. And that includes the teachers too! We hand pick them, help them grow, and get to know them really well to make the best matches possible. Because learning is much more fun and efficient when you understand each other’s goals, needs, and mindset!
Our methods are unique too – that’s because we want you to learn the real language. The kind that Czechs actually speak every day – so get ready to dive into Czech culture as well!
