I think my translation ''He promised several people to teach them how to read and write'' isn't too far away from the proposed answer ''He promised several people that he would teach them to read and write''. Could it therefore be accepted?

As a native AmE speaker, I would say that there is nothing incorrect about the translation given above: "He promised several people that he would teach them to read and write."

I suspect, but am not sure, that your suggested translation may be closer to a different Czech sentence, which one of the Czech native speakers on the team may address.
