Czech lessons

Hi, my dear brave Czech learner!

I love languages so much, what about you? I suppose you do, too!

In October 2018 I moved from France, a country where I lived for 4 years, back to Czech republic. Because I found out that my dream job was the whole time just sitting in front of my nose. Literally 2 centimeters, just there.

And today, I am teaching Czech, language that I love so much.
And I believe that I am a good teacher. Why? Because:

  1. if you do what you truly enjoy, you become good at it
  2. if you are good at something, you enjoy it
  3. if a teacher is a fulfilled person, s/he is positive, encouraging, smiling all the time!
  4. And besides, I believe that not only studying language, but also teaching them should be fun! Because if teacher is a happy and fullfilled person, student is happy too 🙂

Well,…♫♪♫ tadaaaa ♫♪♫ private lessons of Czech are available on Skype, only for you!

I do tailor my lessons. I love creating and using games, I give funny (at least I think so!) examples, we play roles, I put you in „the imagined real“ situation that you are preparing your language for. And help you to reply and react correctly. And of course, I use tons of pictures and I love picture vocabularies.

What should you know about me?

  • I trully love Czech language. I am Czech-language-crazy-lover 🙂
  • Every day, I get up at 5:30 am in order to learn Estonian in 3 months and work on my beloved project SlowCZECH
  • And I believe that smile and positive attitude can save any problem. Or at least forget it

Why am I studying Estonian?

I am convinced that if you know the worker’s job because you did it, too, you are later on a good manager.
That’s why today, my new goal is to learn Estonian so that I understand how difficult it is to start a completely new and weird and hard language 🙂

What do I think of learning new language?

In my opinion, it is extremly enriching to exchange with others in their mother tongue. While you are using another language, which naturally involves different grammar and syntax, via language understanding you catch on the foreign culture as a whole easier – whether you live or just travel abroad. Besides, I believe that knowing at least one foreign language not only cultivates the way how we perceive world but first and foremost are removed the communication barriers between people from different cultures.

As you might have seen on my ©SlowCZECH website, my approach to language learning in general may differ from the one the classical school teachers praise. I am convinced that many people give up just because they were not given the chance to fall in love with the language. They are bored, they learn vocabulary that can’t be used in their every lives rapidly (have I ever mentionned that one of the first words you learn in one of my Czech books for French is “ředitel” and “kancelář”?)

My students get back to me regularly, they are satisfied with their own progress and the results they can see in every day life – because this is the reason why they start to study a foreing language. When designing speaking games, I take into account the level, needs and exigencies of those with whom I have a very nice  and funny lesson afterwards 🙂

The price includes not only speaking, playing (and laughing…!) but some videos to watch for next lesson, text to write, questions to prepare, picture to think of.  I like working with Google Docs that helps us to get the lesson into interactive level, super! Depending on your own preferences – Speaking? Reading? Watching? Discussing? Role playing? I will not force you to hate the exercices and thus the language. Language learning needs to be interesting!
