Atmosphere at the 3rd Language Teachers Festival in 2023

What teachers said about the festival

„The best language teachers event I have ever attended: superb quality of workshops, amazing like-minded professionals from the language teaching field and an uplifting atmosphere.“
Lenka Málková
„All conferences that I've attended talk only about teaching and not about freelancing or work-life balance. This was the only one and that's what makes it special.“
Alena Vágnerová
„What an incredible time this was and what a privilege to have taken part in this educational and networking event organised by Nina. We shared ideas and experience, knowing we are all in this together, and I learned so much.“
Zuzana Delgado
„I really appreciate the amazing atmosphere of cooperation instead of competition. I felt welcomed even though I am a newbie to freelancing and teaching. I also enjoyed the laidback "festival style" as I am not a formal person at all.“
Jana Kalenská
„The festival exceeded my expectations. I loved the event so much! I'm pretty sure I'll be using the inspiration and the energy I gained during the event for months.“
Veronika Palovská
„I would definitely recommend the festival to other teachers. It was interactive, friendly, so much fun and all workshops were highly professional. All beyond my expectations.“
Markéta Kuchovská
„I enjoyed that there was a good balance between a professional and a warm/friendly atmosphere. It wasn't all business, plenty of fun too!“
Zayda Wilson
„One weekend wasn't enough. I am looking forward to coming again, meeting all the inspiring people and enjoying the fantastic atmosphere full of cooperation and support. Thank you, Nina, for organizing such a great event for us!“
Karolína Rybková

Frequently asked questions

The festival is for freelance teachers of all languages who are eager to gain new knowledge and inspiration, participate in stimulating discussions and finally meet other colleagues in person. If you recognize yourself in this, we’d love to see you among us!

We want to celebrate the work we all love, educate ourselves, and have fun at the same time.

This year Nina is celebrating 20 years in ELT (since May 2004) so it will be special!!

The communication language of the festival is English, we have international participants.

The ticket price does not include the cost of transport, accommodation and eating out. There will be free snacks, coffee, tea and water in the conference venue during the workshops.

This is a smaller event on purpose. I believe in quality over quantity and in a more intimate settiing. 

There will be a maximum of 35 participants so that each of you get the most out of it and have enough space to work with the trainers in smaller groups during the workshops.

We believe the workshops will be life-changing so keeping it small is the best way to go so you get a lot of value for your money.

Yes. This year there are fewer workshops and everyone can join everything.

Tickets are valid for 3 days. Tickets for one day or two days only are not available. 

The accommodation can only be booked for 2 nights Fri – Sun, not for 1 night (a condition by Internesto for our conference).

Invoices are automatic. Once you order and pay for the ticket you will be emailed an official invoice you can use for your accounting.
