Evening classes in the UK are ideal if you want to learn Czech after work or your studies. They are a great opportunity to study the language with a qualified, native or bilingual teacher and will help you learn Czech quickly in a sociable environment. These courses also offer excellent preparation for a language holiday abroad, as they will enable you to understand the basics of Czech prior to your trip. Are you a beginner?

If you can’t fit a group language course in your schedule or you prefer to study in your own time, one-to-one Czech classes are the perfect solution. Cactus offers both face-to-face and Skype Czech language lessons. These are tailored to your needs and can take place anywhere, anytime.
Online language courses are an excellent way to practice a language when and where you want. Such courses can’t fully replace lessons with a qualified teacher who will not only motivate you throughout your language learning journey, but will also answer any questions you may have. Nevertheless, they are an excellent way to supplement your lessons with a teacher. As it can be difficult to choose quality resources from the considerable number of courses available online, Cactus has carefully assessed and listed free online Czech resources for your reference.
Living abroad is a dream that many long for, and it is often said to be the best way to achieve fluency in a foreign language. For fluent English speakers, one of the easiest ways to live abroad is by teaching English as a Foreign Language. You can become an English teacher abroad by taking a TEFL course with Cactus. You do not have to be a native speaker but you need a C1 level of English to take the course. We offer CELTA and Trinity Cert TESOL preparation courses across the world, including in Czech Republic.
