Czechs not bouncing back to languages

Language schools in the Czech Republic are reporting a drop in enrolment of up to 50% compared to before March 2020 when the Covid pandemic took hold. This has become particularly noticeable with the start of the 2021 academic year, which is traditionally September and October.

Most schools are still offering a combination of online and ‘hybrid’ classes (that is, a mix of online and face-to-face lessons), with prices staying the same, the head of the Association of Language Schools told expats.cz. The waning uptake is being put down to students’ concerns around the pandemic raging again and most of them (as much as 90%) preferring in-person lessons rather than online.
