Our main focus is to provide qualitative language learning courses for individuals in an informal setting. Educa - Languages welcomes people of all ages, from young learners to pensioners. In fact, our youngest learner was a 2 year-old boy and the oldest learner was a 75 year-old lady. Our students learn languages without stress and in a friendly atmosphere. They also learn about other cultures and different customs as their teachers are foreign university students or graduates that come to Prague for their teaching internship.
Erasmus+ KA1 Project
This year in April 2018, our project application within the framework of the Erasmus + KA1 Mobility Projects in Adult Education was approved by the National Agency of the Czech Republic. The aim of the project is to prepare methodological courses of foreign language teaching in cooperation with our foreign partners.
Basic information about the Eramus+
Erasmus + aims to improve the quality and relevance of qualifications and skills. Two-thirds of the programme's funding will provide scholarships for more than 4 million people to study, train, work or volunteer abroad in 2014-2020 (compared with 2.7 million in 2007-2013). The duration of a stay abroad may range from a few days up to a year.
Participation in Erasmus+ is open to students, teachers, apprentices, volunteers, youth leaders and people working in grassroots' sport. It will also provide funding for partnerships between educational institutions, youth organisations, enterprises, local and regional authorities and NGOs, as well as support for reforms in Member States to modernise education and training and to promote innovation, entrepreneurship and employability.
There will be greater support for IT platforms such as e-twinning, to connect schools and other learning providers via the internet.
Erasmus + is divided into three key actions:
- Learning Mobility - KA 1
- Strategic Partnerships - KA 2
- Support for Education Policy Reform - KA 3
The Eramsus+ programmes is supported in the following countries:
- EU member states - 28 countries

At the moment we are preparing new methodological courses for teaching foreign languages. The participants of the courses will learn about both theoretical and practical issues of teaching, about new methods and techniques and will have practical tasks for consolidating acquired knowledge. The course is accompanied with multiple examples and will be suitable for everyone who is interested in teaching: graduates from the fields of Education, trainee teachers, tutors and others. Everyone who is interested in the existing teaching methods and techniques can participate.
The methodological courses are being prepared within the framework of our approved Erasmus+ project with the help of our foreign partners.
