Czech Children ClubSunday Classes at Velehrad London in Barnes
Do you have Czech bilingual children and find teaching them Czech at home difficult?
Come and join our creative club where both children and parents learn Czech through games, stories and art.
At the Czech Language Club, children are motivated to help each other to learn Czech through play and active interaction. They are encouraged to develop a strong team spirit and a sense of cultural belonging at the same time. In all our classes, children learn how to use Czech naturally. They play games, exercise, listen to Czech songs, watch Czech fairytales, read stories, draw and create things. Older children learn how to read and write and younger ones focus more on nursery rhymes and games. Children can join one or two sessions. An ideal combination for younger children is: Czech Art Club + Czech Playground. Older children will benefit from Czech Art Club + Czech Storytelling. If you are not sure about the right session for your child, you can discuss it with our head teacher Kamila. We provide separate space for parents therefore you can stay in the building, meet like-minded people and have a cup of tea or coffee. English speaking parents can learn Czech at the same time. We have two different groups for adults.
Our classes are every Sunday during school terms at VELEHRAD, 39 Lonsdale Rd, Barnes, London SW13 9JP.
“My son was learning Czech with one of their teachers and even at the age of 3 he really enjoyed his classes. Their tutors are professional, flexible, and deliver really well structured courses, which are fun and very personalised.”

Czech for Adults
Czech Through Games
The language is taught exclusively through games and a wide range of physical activities. These include Czech gym, Czech dancing, Czech messy cooking, popular Czech games or Czech role play. At our club, children play and learn at the same time.
Children and Parents
Both children and parents are actively involved throughout. The aim of the sessions is to enable everyone to have as much fun as possible. We help to reinstall bilingualism in families where the Czech language is not frequently spoken.
Czech Through Stories
Our goal is to promote and maintain Czech cultural traditions and customs. Children can enjoy Czech storytelling and explore famous Czech cartoon characters, like Krteček or Pat a Mat, through stories, fairytales, songs, or DVDs.
We want to improve and develop existing bilingualism in children with a passive knowledge of Czech. Our goal is to help them become confident and active speakers who can feel comfortable when they visit their grandparents or speak to friends.
“Excellent tuition in a comfortable environment – Highly recommended if you or your children would like to improve Czech language skills.”
