Learning with School Populo is different than with classical language schools. We offer only one-on-one language courses, i.e. one student per tutor. This teaching method brings huge benefits to our clients, and it is much easier to reach the required language level. All our classes can be taught online.
We offer one-on-one classes in foreign languages such as English, German, Italian, French, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, Hebrew, Portuguese, Hungarian, Korean, Vietnamese, Czech, Slovak, etc.

Study materials of School Populo included in the course price
Possibility of „pause“ the classes, for example, when you are going on holiday, on a business trip, or become ill

Course of tutoring
Each of our future students has the opportunity to take a free placement test. Based on its result, we will recommend a suitable lesson frequency and length. After each lesson, you will receive
information about the lesson's course, the topics covered, and the evaluation of progress via e-mail. Parents and students are also informed about each upcoming lesson via an SMS message, which contains
the lesson date and time and the tutor’s name.
I would like to thank you for your huge help with German and especially for assigning the tutor, Mrs. Fischer. I was very satisfied with her. Thank you very much for everything.
Populo School is a great opportunity for me
Populo School is a great opportunity for me. When I got my first lesson in 2017, I was very happy. Because I want to become a teacher in the future, lessons in Populo are a great benefit for me. Here, I can learn to communicate better with children and understand their thinking. I always learn new teaching methods, and it can be said that the children themselves teach me. Communication with tutoring coordinators is always pleasant. Almost all my suggestions and needs are met. If you also want to pass on your experience to the pupils, see their joy when they understand the topic or are looking for a flexible part-time job, do not hesitate to contact School Populo.

I would like to express my great thanks for preparing me for my high school resit
Simone T., student
I would like to express my great thanks for preparing me for my high school resit, which took place at the end of August this year and which I successfully passed. In particular, I would like to thank my tutor Věra, who paid close attention to me throughout the tutoring and provided me with sufficient materials for home preparation. Thank you very much for the preparation, experience, and pleasant cooperation.
Thank you all
Vicky, student of Italian
Thanks to your School Populo, my horizons have been widening since February, and my tutor and I are experiencing exciting moments while learning Italian during our classes. In my 50+ I am again like a young pupil, and progress is visible. I look forward to going to Italy and being able to use my efforts in practice. Thank you all. Knowledge is the only thing no one will take from you!
I am overall satisfied
I am satisfied with tutoring of German through Miss H. Her classes are well organized in terms of logistics and, specifically for me, in terms of continuity. We went thoroughly through grammar, verb declination, verb forms, in nouns – definite and indefinite articles, modal verbs, strong and weak verbs, numerals, and phrases. We are currently working on conversation skills – that’s what the company’s owner will mainly want from me. I am overall satisfied.
Every teacher has to start somewhere, and School Populo is an ideal place for that.
I’ve been a teacher at Populo School for some time now. Like any job, tutoring has its pros and cons. To start less positively, especially when preparing for admission exams, it is a demanding job, both in terms of time and head. Both for me as the tutor who has to teach students, be it at seven in the evening or three in the afternoon, I still have to be just as fresh and well prepared, and for coordinators who are literally struggling with the time possibilities of students and tutors that need to match. However, these negatives are well outweighed by the friendly atmosphere, pleasant tutoring premises, and the fact that students do not have to be afraid to go to School Populo, the evaluation is not set as numbered grades, but the tutors use letters to express students’ progress and activity. The amount of textbooks and teaching materials only complements all the positives that the Populo School is proud of. If someone told me that I would have tutoring as fun and I would look forward to every lesson, I would not believe it. However, with School Populo, this idea came true, not only because the tutors are "tailor-made" for each student. Every tutor has to start somewhere, and School Populo is an ideal place for that. The coordinators will help, advise and do everything to make every tutoring a success.
Mom’s Story – German for the little ones
It always seemed to me that my daughter Mary had a talent for languages. She learned to read in English herself, so I thought about trying to give her a chance to learn the basics of German at an early age so that she would have an advantage in first grade. Pre-school preparation gave her a chance to develop this talent. She did well in German thanks to many fun exercises Mary did with Miss tutor, and also thanks to the fact that no one pushed her. I also wanted to give credit to the “total physical response” method, which has also proved very useful. I started to see the results very quickly when my daughter at home started reading short German fairy tales, picture books, and catching words from fairy tales, which I played on the computer. We are now considering other languages as well because talent should be nurtured from a young age and the Pre-school preparation method works very well!
Many thanks to Miss C. for tutoring Suzanne. If she needs it in the future, we would definitely like to contact you again. She was always looking forward to the lesson. We wish you all the best and, above all, health.

As part of her studies, she had the opportunity to travel twice to Israel, where she completed an ulpan course, i.e. an intensive Hebrew course.

She is currently studying Jewish philosophy at the doctoral program at the Faculty of Philosophy at University. Hannah enjoys culinary activities in her free time or goes to get energy from the surrounding and more distant countryside.
