Czech and Slovak School            

The Czech and Slovak School at the Bohemian Hall in Astoria, Queens invites all children interested in learning the Czech or the Slovak language, to join our tuition-free language program.

We offer a program based on a comprehensive approach to learning a modern Czech and Slovak language with a curriculum created to educate school-aged children. The program uses a Balanced Literacy framework and incorporates the Czech and the Slovak National Curriculum Standards for Elementary Schools to effectively teach all aspects of each language, including grammar, reading, writing, and communication. In addition, culturally-rich activities provide students with many opportunities to understand the fundamentals of each country’s history, geography, and ethnic life style. The program uses genuine Czech and Slovak textbooks and learning material to promote more authentic learning.

The education program is conducted every Friday from 5:00-7:30pm or Saturday from 11:00am to 2:00pm and is intended for children 5 to 13 years of age. Children at all levels of proficiency are admitted in the program.

We are currently accepting new students for the upcoming school year 2010-2011.
