We believe that a language school can only be as good as its teachers. That’s why at Giramondo, you’ll meet experienced professionals who like their job and enjoy preparing creative, interesting and fun lessons for you. Study with a native speaker, a teacher who speaks your language or both of them (a highly popular option). The lessons are interrelated even if the course is shared by two teachers so that you can make fast progress. Meet our teaching team now!
Whether you’re a complete beginner or just need to improve your skills in a particular field, we always focus on speaking. That doesn’t mean we ignore other language skills. However, we believe it is important to be able to use your knowledge independently and with confidence. That’s why we won’t have you fill in mundane grammar exercises the entire lesson. Instead, you will speak, speak and speak…

Free demo lesson
We believe the best reflection of our school is how you feel studying with your teacher and how the lessons suit your needs. That’s why we provide a free demo lesson at the beginning of your course. Only then can you decide if you want to continue and confirm the course. The demo lesson is always as long as your usual lessons will be. Besides, you can have a look here what a typical lesson might look like.
This offer applies to courses of 20+ lessons. If you intend to have fewer lessons and you’re satisfied with the teacher, we’ll ask you to pay for the demo lesson. If you wish to discontinue the course, the demo is free.
It’s up to you where and when you have lessons. You can choose to have lessons online, at our school in Prague 4 – Modřany or to meet conveniently in your home or office so that you don’t waste any time commuting. Our teachers will be happy to come to you anywhere in Prague. We teach early birds as well as night owls, any working day between 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. You also decide how often and how long your lessons will be. However, in order to achieve the best results, we recommend having lessons at least twice a week.
Are you busy at work or do you want to refresh your language skills before your holiday or business trip? Order a short-term intensive course.
We teach general and business language, exam preparation as well as courses for special purposes, whether it’s HR, telephone skills or art. Not sure which textbook you should use? We’ll be happy to share our recommendations in order to help you choose the right one. In conversation courses, the teacher’s own materials are typically used instead of a textbook.
Signing up for language classes usually means a significant time commitment as well as financial expense. At the beginning of your course, we’ll put together your personalized study plan based on your needs and requirements. That will help you keep an eye on your progress and achieve your goals.
Group or one-to-one?
It’s entirely up to you whether you want to study alone or in a group with your colleagues or friends. However, for learning to be as effective as possible, we recommend groups of no more than 8 people. Before the start of your course, we’ll test you for free and recommend division into appropriate groups based on your level.
Before the first lesson, we always test you for free to make sure you’ll study in a course of an appropriate level that will really help you improve. Besides, you can also take regular progress tests to see what you’ve learnt so far. You can take tests after a certain number of lessons or volume of study material that you have set for yourself.
