A start-to-finish method made for Czechs
We have spent over 8 years being obsessive in the making of our method, which takes Czech students on a clear and organised path to practical English fluency.
In the SLM method, each lesson is a small part of a clear, long-term plan, in which students learn all of English, fix "Czenglish" mistakes, and learn key vocabulary in a logical order that makes sense.
All lessons have the same structure and style, and combine lots of conversation, correction and revision, with one or two new things each lesson so students can clearly see the value in each lesson.
Textbooks + Leaflets + Videos
Our textbooks are like a recipe book for teachers, with step-by-step explanations for each topic, with examples, pro tips and questions for students - which allows all teachers to teach the same content in the same way.
Our leaflets give students a clear visual overview of what they have learnt, and they can see how the topic of the day is just one small part of the overall plan. Teachers can give students a star to put in each box when they've done it - which students love and lets teachers quickly see at a glance what students have already studied.
Our professionally produced video courses link directly to the topics in the textbooks and leaflets, and allow students to speed up their progress by watching the topic for the next lesson in advance, catch up on lessons they missed, or simply study at home whenever they like.
Consistency Across All Your Classes
By having all your students following the same method, you can guarantee clients consistency of quality and the same English improvements across their whole company - or tell public classes exactly what they will learn in a course.
It also allows for easy monitoring of progress across your whole school - and to be able to quickly see if a certain class isn't making as much progress as they should be, and thereby avoid negative feedback by fixing the problem before students notice something is wrong.
No Mess When Teachers Leave
When a teacher leaves, their replacement simply picks up where the previous teacher left off, with the same method, lesson style and approach. By making the content independent of the teacher, students will continue on the same clear path to fluency even if their teacher changes.
We provide training for your new teachers - included in your license fee - when they join your school so they know exactly what to do - so that you can stop worrying about negative feedback and focus on running your school.
5 Years Of Very Positive Feedback
99.7% "very positive" feedback in 2022 so far
Lessons are fun and conversational, but students can visually see the long-term plan thanks to the leaflets, and how each lesson is a small part of their longer journey to fluency. No more complaining about feeling like they’re not making progress or feeling ‘stuck’ at a certain level.
Our textbooks contain all the explanations, examples and student practice that teachers need - in a clear, step-by-step guide - which means teachers don't need to plan anything. This is a huge benefit for teachers and allows them to just enjoy teaching and seeing results.
You can show your clients clear overviews of how everyone in their company is improving, with all employees learning the same English skills. Every year you can show your clients updates to the video courses, app and textbooks so clients can see their service is constantly improving.
In-Depth Teacher Training
We train your whole team - so you don't have to
We know that providing effective training to all your teachers is time (and money) intensive - which is why we take care of everything for you.
We have spent 5 years refining and condensing our training program into a highly practical, intensive 1-week program, in which teachers learn exactly how to do each part of a SLM lesson and learn the five principles of teaching a great lesson.
These trainings will up-skill your entire team, and combined with our method will ensure that all students are learning the same content, in the same way, with a consistent lesson style that students will love.
Everyone teaching the same content in the same way
All teachers being trained in how to use the same method greatly reduces the quality difference between experienced and new teachers.
Rest assured in the fact that all your new teachers know what to do - we do all the training so you don't have to!
All teachers can give the same explanations, examples and practice questions. The teacher becomes the personality that brings the method to life.
Training Available Across Czech Republic
All our training is in-person, and entails 2-3 hours of training per day for five days.
If your school is in Prague, you can send teachers to our office in Václavské náměstí or we can happily come to your office.
If you are located outside of Prague we can send a trainer to your school for a small fee to cover travel and accommodation expenses.
Teacher Certification Program
We certify all teachers that pass our training program, which ensures only certified teachers are using our method and thereby representing our brand.
We deeply believe in our method and training - but there is only so much that training and materials can do if teachers are not motivated or willing to improve.
Therefore, our training program also serves as a useful indictor to our partners as to which of their teachers are the weakest performing, which can help in staff management decisions.
Stand Out From The Competition
Most Language Schools Offer The Same Services
Most languages have a very similar approach: they hire teachers who seem acceptable, then let them choose a book from their library (or prescribe a certain book), potentially do some general training, then cross their fingers that everything goes well.
This is an understandable approach, as having intensive teacher training and method control for hundreds of teachers isn't feasible - however this leads to high variation in lesson quality and therefore student feedback.
Clients are used to each teacher being different - which is why they often ask for a new teacher as they are hoping they will 'win the teacher lottery'.
You Can Be A League Above The Competition
With the SLM method and training, you can advertise a specific method made for Czechs - by British natives who speak Czech - which is fun, conversational and proven to work.
You can advertise the fact you have custom textbooks, leaflets and video courses which all work seamlessly together to maximise progress.
You can also emphasise the training of your teachers - and how all students will get the same program regardless of which teacher they have.
Your School Will Be Constantly Improving
We have a very clear long-term roadmap for our method and product development - all of which you can advertise to your clients.
For example, in late 2023 we will be launching our custom-made Business Course for Czechs, which teaches the most common business English from each company department.
And in 2024 we are planning a massive update to the SLM App, which will further link what happens in the lesson to what students can learn and revise at home on their phones.
