My name is Marie and here are a few words about me.
I also completed a one-year post-secondary course "Guide Activities in Tourism". I have used these skills in planning and organizing of excursions, conferences and workshops.
From 2003 to 2012 I worked at the Rectorate of the VSB - Technical University of Ostrava and I have almost 17 years' experience in education. My agenda was also mobilities of foreign students and helping them to adapt to their study in the Czech Republic. Some of them were interested in learning Czech language, so I started giving them individual lessons.
Czech4You Language Centre, which offers Czech language lessons for foreigners, was founded in 2012. Since then, hundreds of students of all ages have passed through our doors.
I currently have students from countries such as Switzerland, Australia, Denmark, Japan, Egypt, Mexico, Canada, Venezuela, Italy, Philippines, Great Britain, France, Netherlands, Greece, Germany, Poland, Cameroon, China, South Korea, Israel, Russia, Spain, New Zealand, Belgium, Colombia and USA (Colorado, Texas, Hawaii, Iowa, California, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Georgia and Ohio).
My students are employees of foreign companies, managers, directors, teachers, architects, artists, musicians, researchers and international students.
I enjoy teaching very much because I like working with people and communicating with them. Our lessons are very interesting, because we speak about our (Czech) and their different culture and habits :-)
Here are references from my students.
My hobbies are travelling, cooking, biking, hiking, skiing and photography. I like music which sounds good (e.g. Celtic, Irish, African, Indian, Australian, modern and classical music).
