I'm currently enrolled in the Akcent intensive course that runs from 1/30-2/17. I am considering continuning at Akcent if my schedule allows. The intensive program is more pricey at 10,000kc for the 3 week program but it is 3.25 hours every day 5 days a week so per hour it actually is about the same, maybe even cheaper (I compared to many others SF, London, Noisis etc). For someone who has the time to spend every morning in class this is a great option. The facilites are very nice, and the staff are all very helpful. There is a cafe in the buildings as well as plenty vending machines in other areas. The class sizes are perfect for practicing and learning, my class has 7 students. Radios, TVs, and games provide additional learning. The only negative to this class is that the text book isn't ideal. It can be a little frustrating at times as there are many words used in the book that are nowhere defined in the lessons. Students in my class agreed to this problem. The teachers make up for this oversight by adding additional vocabulary and being available to answer the many questions everyone has. Ultimately a great choice to get started, but if you're taking the intensive class with zero background in Czech be prepared to spend some additional hours studying!

Don't waste your time

Akcent boasts to be the only school in Prague who offers the CELTA certificate. That doesn't make them qualified to offer the programme. Cambridge is totally full of themselves thinking that their programme is superior to all others and that they are beyond criticism. Akcent blindly ticked boxes during the one-month 120-hour course. If you dared to venture outside those boxes you failed. I have 16 years of teaching experience and never had an issue teaching a class. I was granted a weak pass by Akcent which according to Cambridge was a failure. Total waste of time and money. I learned nothing that I can actually apply in a real classroom. This is a money grabbing attempt on Cambridge's part. People need to wake up and realise this.
