My name is Václav and I am from a small town near Prague. I lived in Prague the last five years, but recently I have moved to Berlin for some time. I graduated in Phonetics and Logic at Charles University and I have been teaching Czech full-time for over two years now. Phonetics is concerned with speech in general so Czech pronunciation, including segmental level (r, ř,...), stress, rhytm or intonation was a big part of my studies. Logic is not directly linked to this, but it teaches abstract and systematic thinking, which is also useful in language teaching.
I have been teaching Czech to students at different levels and different ages (ranging from 13 to 70) and I always try to find a teaching style based on each individual's needs. I really enjoy teaching and spend as much time preparing the lessons as on teaching itself. I am open to what ideas students bring and we try to find together the most effective way to learn.
Recently my friend Daniel is doing conversation and reading sessions to help our students get used to different speakers and practice Czech in a less structured way. He studied a broad programme at the Faculty of Humanities and is particularly interested in literature.
