Speak & Mamas are unique experience-based English (or Spanish) courses which include elements of Montessori pedagogy, creative workshops, singing, nursery-rhymes, games full of motion for kids from toddlers on up. Kids can be accompanied by adults (e.g. moms, dads, grandmas, aunts, uncles, child-minders, etc.) or can take part on their own. The courses are taught by NATIVE ENGLISH SPEAKERS (or by highly experienced near-native Czech teachers).
Would you like to experience natural English (or Spanish) lessons together with your kids? Join us! We will help you freshen up and expand your language skills; we will also help you enjoy spontaneous language-oriented activities to liven up both your child’s day in a meaningful and entertaining way. Based on our rich experience, we know this works! ;-)
During the class we all have a snack or a picnic together and explore parks and playgrounds in the area. We alternate between focused organized activities and free play, thus respecting children’s needs – needless to say – all in English (or Spanish). Moreover, as a bonus, your kids will bring home their own handmade piece of art from every class for a keepsake – provided you or your kids do not eat it! ;-) Yes, sometimes we even ”cook” in English!
Classes are limited to a maximum of six adults with their kids. Course will open if at least three kids sign up. All activities are adapted based on the age and skills of the kids in a particular group.

Cancellation policy & make-up classes:
If your child cannot attend the class and you inform us at least 24 hours in advance, you will not be charged for a pre-paid class. Your child can attend a make-up class any time during the whole semester provided there is a free spot at the day and time you choose. Should you cancel late (i.e. within less than 24 hours prior to the class) or do not inform us at all, you will lose the option to attend a make-up class. If you cannot inform us through the online form labelled Cancellations on our web site, please send us an SMS to the following number: +420 775 250 135. We highly recommend attending make-up lessons as soon as possible, since towards the end of the course, there may not be many options left. Before you attend the make-up lessons you choose, please wait for a confirmation message from the organizers. Should your child miss an excessive number of classes because of a serious or recurrent health problem, the cancellation policy will be resolved individually. Should your cancellations fall within the last two weeks of the mid-term, you will have a chance to attend make-up lessons in the first two weeks of the following term. No classes take place on Czech public holidays or during school vacations; course fees have been decreased accordingly.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call +420 720 757 486. Hope to see you soon!!
