Hi, my dear brave Czech learner!
I love languages so much, what about you? I suppose you find them at least a bit interesting if you are here, right? 😉
I admit that I not only create audio content for you, guys, but I do teach the Czech language, too. I enjoy teaching in the Integration center for foreigners, in language schools, privately and online. I teach groups from 2 to 12 students and I offer individual classes, too. And this variety is just sooo crazy 🙂 So inspiring! So cool.
Do I believe that I am a good language tutor? I do! Why? Because:
- if you do what you truly enjoy, you become good at it
- if you are good at something, you enjoy it
- if a teacher is a fulfilled person, s/he is positive, encouraging, smiling all the time!
- 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 🙂
I 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.
How to get a free trial lesson?
I like to offer a free 20 to 30 minutes trial lesson. You need to feel the good vibes to
stay motivated, to stay concentrated, to be consistent. And you can test it for free if it works between us 😉 As to me, I do choose my students, too. I do not work with students who are not willing to think about what they want and how, who are not willing to decide about their way of studying the language.
Do you want to know my way of teaching better? Here are a couple details…
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, I like to offer a large variety of ideas. 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”?)
And what about my online lessons, how do they look like?
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 🙂
In our lessons I include 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!
