Praha: 50kr Czech Classes

Czech Language Classes for Foreigners for only 50 crowns

Location: 5 class locations in Prague and 6 in Central Bohemia (see below)
Website: www.cicpraha.org

A while ago I overheard a co-worker praising a Czech course she was taking for only 50 crowns. I googled around and found nothing, so last month I finally asked her what she was talking about and this is the answer : language classes offered by the CIC (Center for the Integration of Foreigners).

It's real.

The classes I've attended have had from 12 to 24 students. The classes are led by two teachers and conducted entirely in Czech. Every class has a practical theme (e.g. at the grocery store, at the doctor, professions, etc). The teachers provide you with a hand-out that you work through the whole class (in pairs or in groups).

Despite the large number of students (usually a mix of Russians, Germans, Ukrainians, Koreans, etc), it's entirely worth 50 crowns. Although I don't understand 40% of what the teachers are saying, through body language or the help of the person sitting beside you, anyone can follow the flow of the class.

All the classes are for beginners. It's not a cumulative course, i.e. it doesn't matter if you missed the previous class because it won't be related to the next one. You can join at any time.

The truth is, I don't really want to study Czech. But for 50crowns, it's hard to find an excuse not to.
