Description The article deals with intergenerational learning in the Czech family from three generations perspective. Intergenerational learning means phenomena and processes aiding mutual transfer of knowledge, experiences, and attitudes in the family that take place in specific family life situations, in interactions, and during the shared activities of the participating generations: children, parents, and grandparents. The thesis of pro-learning family culture – the influence of family characteristics such as communication, family climate and cohesion on learning in the family is elaborated. The thesis on pro-learning family culture is developed further to identification of four different models of family learning from intergenerational perspective. A mixed research design has been used.
