About the school and City

Prague is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, and with its different districts and a calendar full of happenings, Prague has something for everyone. The Old Town’s cobbled streets and colourful facades transport you back in time, and there’s plenty to explore both in the city and all over the Czech Republic. The standard of living is high and Prague’s low prices (not just for beer!) mean everyone can get stuck in to experiencing the city.

The school is located a ten-minute metro journey from the heart of the city in a residential area of Prague 4. It is surrounded by a large garden with trees, benches and red squirrels. Our other building is next-door which houses a library and café. AKCENT IH Prague is large and vibrant school with about 50 English teachers, its own teacher training department, and teachers of other languages. Working within this long established and supportive team will provide a great boost to your career.

AKCENT IH Prague is a great school, in a fantastic city. Come and join us!
