The lesson plan should have a clear structure and goals.
You should Incorporate various activities into the lesson.
You should try to elicit as much as possible from the student.

What are our requirements?
We are members of the Association of Language Schools of the Czech Republic (AJŠ). For this reason, we prefer candidates who fulfill the following criteria:
a university degree, preferebly in teaching or linguistics,
non-native speakers with language skills at a minimum level of C1 on the CEFR, which the candidate must document with an appropriate certificate,
native speakers who hold a teaching certificate (e.g. TEFL/CELTA or a relevant alternative).
How we teach?
Who we teach
Our methodology Coach & Practise enables us to teach languages effectively to busy professionals, who can only devote a limited amount of time out of their busy schedule. These are students who do not have much time for self-study, preparation and homework.
We plan lessons that focus on the communication needs of the student and their specific language needs. Our methodology especially helps students to have the confidence to use the language and speak in a realistic context.
How it works
The Coach&Practise method guides the student towards effectively learning the language by using visualisation, self-correction and finding the best way to communicate their ideas. Our students actively speak for 80% of the time during lessons and always do so in the target language. The lessons are logically linked together, plenty of practice helps students remember new language and motivates them to actively use it in their professional and everyday lives.
