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.

Who we are

We are slowczech, a team of friendly language teachers on an adventure! We help students speak real, everyday language to reach their goals. Learning Czech with us is like a hot air balloon ride. It’s fun, it’s relaxed, so you can admire the landscape while safely getting to your destination. Get your ticket now, jump on board and see for yourself!

Our values

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!

Our story

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!

If you are not having fun, you are not learning!

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!

Daniela

Arabic culture, nature, family

I’m Daniela or Danča. I enjoy working with adults from different cultural backgrounds. To me, Czech is like a beautiful forest that we explore together. Let’s play games, discover new strategies, and share our hobbies in class. I love traveling, swimming, reading, watching films, and singing in a vocal band.

I am slowczech courses manager and a Prague-based Czech tutor. Let’s conquer language fears together! I know how to tailor our lessons and ask you about your goals. Is it chatting over beer, work emails, university studies, family connections? I adore languages, plants, sitcoms, books, documentaries, ping-pong, and nature trips.

Podcasts, British comedy, DnD, and spending time with my cat!

Czech language, picnics, Prague

I’ve been teaching Czech since 2013, starting with native speakers and later focusing on Czech as a foreign language. It’s my calling to help you with this awesome language. In my classes, we play games, explore idioms and enjoy observing progress. Let’s talk books, movies, dogs, sun in our lessons!

I’m Barbora, or Bára. Life is amazing with wonderful people, my husband and my child by my side. I’m lucky to have my dream job, helping people understand each other. I enjoy both learning and teaching. I love working on conversation skills and correct pronunciation. Share your stories with me!

Ema

Music, French, communication

I’m Ema (or Míša), and I fell in love with teaching Czech eight years ago. Learning a language is a journey and I am here to be your guide and help you to enjoy it. Together, we always set a destination (in a week/month/year) and create a detailed itinerary, so we don´t get lost on the way. I love travelling, hiking, yoga, music, and dancing. I have a little baby now. That’s why I also offer WhatsApp and Hybrid lessons.

Petra L.

Czech culture, self-reflection, family

Since 2017, I’ve been teaching Czech to both groups and individuals. I tailor lessons to my students’ preferences, offering exam preparation or fun conversational classes. I believe that language connects us and fosters understanding. I’m also a certified teacher for children and have extensive experience working with kids.

I´m freelance tutor since 2019 currently living in Mexico. I use mostly communication methods of teaching, which means we will talk a lot. I believe language lessons are not only about learning a new language, but it is a great opportunity to explore different culture, meet new people, make friends!

Eva

Nature, Russian, icecream

I am constantly looking for playful and unconventional ways of teaching. I understand the Russian soul and speak Russian myself at a native level. I can help Russian speakers avoid the pitfalls that come with the similarities between 2 languages. I am not afraid to sleep alone in the forest.

Eliška

business, mother, polyglote

I am slowczech founder and from my experience I know two things: beginners can understand words with time. And enjoyable input is vital for natural language acquisition. Many give up Czech due to old methods, irrelevant vocabulary or overwhelming grammar. Let’s change that and make learning Czech exciting and effective.
