Teach English in Czech - teachers’ salaries in the Czech Republic


Czechia is known as a country rich in both medieval and modern culture. Boasting castles, gothic architecture and museums for the history lovers. Infamous beer, picturesque canals, and nightlife for the more modern traveller!

Prague is situated in the north-west of Czech Republic and is the capital and largest city in the country. The city was founded during the Roman Empire, during the Gothic and Renaissance periods. It’s known to be one of the only cities in Europe not destroyed during WW1, meaning there are so many original buildings and streets to explore.

Czech Republic is known for being a political, economical and cultural hub of central Europe. It’s a really diverse country, with influences from neighbouring Germany, Austria and of course, Slovakia.  It’s a contemporary vibrant country, all whilst boasting it’s medieval infrastructure. Once you discover it, you’ll not want to leave!

Salaries are usually between $1200 – $1600 USD per month depending on how many hours per week you work. Private tuition can bump up your salary, lessons are usually paid at $25 USD per hour.

The cost of living low in Czech Republic, around $850 – $1500 USD per month all in. These figures vary by your accommodation choice and how central you’d like to live! Your salary will cover your rent, accommodation, food, transport etc, and still leave money each month for travel, entertainment and trips.

Before you begin your program in Prague, you will need to have savings of approx $3000 USD to comfortably live until you’re paid by your employer and begin the visa process if you are a non EU national (see here for visa information).


The team in Prague can arrange private rooms in furnished apartments, hostels/hotels, shared rooms and the option of private apartments. We are happy to offer you this service and take the stress out of finding your own place for the course, however, you are more than welcome to secure housing on your own via Airbnb or any other similar sites.

For those staying with us, we generally organise housing about 8 weeks before the start of a course. Below, you will find a list of our housing options and prices.

If you would prefer to find your own housing, companies like Airbnb and Flatio.com make it very easy to book something. The benefit of booking your own place is that you have a lot more options to choose from and more negotiating power. So, if you are coming with friends, a significant other, or if you would simply like your own spot, booking your accommodation is not a bad idea. If you are planning on going this route, please let us know in advance. We are happy to offer you advice on picking a place.

The apartments contain everything you need and include WiFi, a kitchen, a washing machine (if not in the apartment then onsite) and bedding. There will be a staff member, or a recent graduate meet you at your apartment to show you around. Most of the apartments are located about 15-20 minutes away from the school.

Apartments and individual rooms differ from each other, but all of our housing options are usually much less expensive than booking your own place. The cost of the housing also includes car service from the airport, cleaning costs before your arrival, and a meetup with either the property manager or a staff member.

Housing Costs

Private Rooms in Furnished Apartments $600-$700

Private Flat 1 person (limited) $800-$900

Private Flat 2 people (limited) $975-$1075

Shared Rooms (if available) $325-$450

If you decide on getting your own place, it’s wise to not book anything longer than 1 month if you plan on living and teaching in the Czech Republic. For your visa, you will need to secure long-term housing during the course. If you book something longer than a month, this could interfere with the visa process.

What’s included in the housing cost?

All utilities

Airport pickup


Cleaning services before arrival 

Staff meet up and short tour of the premises 

Small incidentals that might occur


Depending on where you choose to teach, rent varies from $500 to $800 USD per month. Normally expats and teachers share apartments, bringing housing costs right down. You’ll be helped by your trainers at the TEFL centre to secure your long term accommodation during the course, ready for when you’re teaching English in Czech Republic.

You’ll study for 120 hours over the 4 week training period. There are over 14 hours of practicals included, with a range of levels to teach.

To complete the TEFL course you need to be at least 18 years old (although each applicant is considered on a case by case basis). You can also be a non-native speaker of English as long as you have a level C1 or above, which will be tested during the interview. A Bachelors degree (in any discipline) is preferred, however there are plenty of TEFL jobs for non degree holders.

  • Visa Requirements

EU passport holders can live and work in Europe without restrictions. For Non-EU passport holders, you will need a visa to live, study and work in Czech Republic for longer than 3 months. There is an on-site visa agency within the TEFL centre that will assist all candidates in obtaining the necessary long-term visa, which allows you to live and work in Czech Republic legally.

There’s a huge amount of teaching vacancies in Czech Republic, with jobs all around Prague and other cities and towns also. Smaller cities usually pay more and have a lesser cost of living than Prague itself!

The majority of jobs are in language centres, so your hours and days are flexible. Different language centres generally teach different ages. Language centre teaching generally consists of 20-25 contact teaching hours per week, with preparation and marking in your spare time.

Other job types vary in hours, pay and schedule. There are opportunities to teach at pre-schools, high schools, one-to-one tutoring, weekend/summer camps and online too.

You’ll receive personalised job assistance, worldwide and lifelong! The team work with you to ensure you’re in the role that’s right for you, based on your preferences of location and job type.
