I graduated in Czech language and Literature at the Faculty of Arts of Charles University in Prague. I started to teach Czech for foreigners already during the last year of my studies. I have also experienced firsthand the situation most of you know very well – you are a foreigner in a foreign country and you need to learn a foreign language quickly to succeed in studies or in business and to make friends. In my lessons I try to focus on students’ needs and how they can use Czech in everyday life. We work together to overcome their fear of speaking Czech and to make their communication more efficient.
