I can help you if
- you have come to the Czech Republic and would like to start learning Czech.
- you have been staying in the Czech Republic for a longer time and you still don´t understand Czech people very well.
- you speak and understand Czech well but you need to learn professional Czech language.
- you live in the Czech Republic, you speak and understand Czech well but people tell you have an accent and make mistakes.
- you study a Czech school and you need to improve your Czech.
- you need a preparation for an exam: exam for permanent stay, Czech citizenship, entrance exam to high school or university.
- you live abroad and you are going to travel to the Czech Republic (to study, to work, for a holiday…).
- you need a help with a particular situation, e.g. to write an application, a letter, to prepare yourself for a job interview etc.
- you are a company employing non-native Czech speakers and you would like to offer them a Czech language course.
What I teach and how
I teach Czech for foreigners. I’ve been teaching private lessons as well as for language schools. I´m experienced in groups and also one-to-one courses. Teaching various ability levels has given me the opportunity to use a wide range of teaching skills, always with respect for student´s needs. My education in pedagogy, interest in psychology and long experience in teaching allow me to help my students to develop their language skills efficiently.
I use a communication method of teaching. You learn to communicate in specific life situations (e.g. orientation, shopping, travelling etc.) – you are able to use necessary vocabulary, phrases, grammar and you will be familiar with Czech culture habits. You learn how to speak, write and understand Czech people.
If you need to know proffesional language we will also include it.
But the most important point is when, where and how you would like to use Czech. We together prepare a study plan for you according to this. Then your study will be as useful as possible.
I like using text books, e.g. Čeština expres (authors Lída Holá a Pavla Bořilová) or Čeština pro cizince (Marie Boccou Kestřánková et al.). However, we choose a book which will be the most convenient for you. Or we work with other materials without a book.
I also use additional handouts which I prepare for you. This includes audios, videos, games, on-line materials, newspaper etc. From time to time we can practise what you have learned in real situations.
Lessons take place in your office, at home or somewhere else depends on our choice.
I teach Skype lessons as well.
45, 60 or 90minutes lessons are the most frequent. We can meet regularly for a longer time or we can have a specific number of lessons.
From the beggining we try to communicate in Czech. If neccesery, e.g. in a case of grammar explanation or at the very beggining of the learning, we can use English or Russian.
