ADULT Language Classes


The winter season of CZECH and SLOVAK LANGUAGE COURSES AND CONVERSATION ZOOM MEETINGS will start on February 1, 2022 for Czech course and the Slovak course will start in March 2022. Courses are organized in Montreal by “BESEDA – Czech and Slovak Culture Center in Canada” since the year 2000. These courses and conversation meetings will be via ZOOM  and are recommended for teens aged 16 years and up and for adults of all ages. Czech and Slovak language native speakers will teach the courses and will participate in the conversation meetings. Due to large differences in the knowledge of languages among people registering for language courses and conversation meetings, the month of January 2022 is used for a language knowledge evaluation and for forming of appropriate level groups. 

Please contact BESEDA as soon as possible for review meeting if you would like to participate in the Czech or Slovak language courses or conversation meetings. Please send this message to others whom may be interested as well.

Contact BESEDA by Email at: or Phone 450-667-1947.


About the Classes

Currently the classes offered are engaging, lively and teach children the basics of communication in Czech, be it reading, writing, listening or speaking. Additionally, children learn about Czech culture, tradition and heritage; and have fun putting on performances.

The Institute has been fortunate in obtaining the generous patronage of the Czech Foreign Ministry which supplies our school with the latest in children’s story books and educational material.

Classes are offered to children 6 to 12 years of age and run Saturdays (except for long weekends). The fall semester starts in mid-September and runs for 10-12 Saturdays. The spring semester starts in mid-January and runs for 16 Saturdays.

In-person classes start at 10 am and end at 12 pm. A nominal fee of $5 per child per class is charged with discounts for other children from the same family.
