What I like about teaching
The best thing about teaching English is learning – learning a lot about myself. Besides, it’s inspiring and enjoyable and you never know what to expect – so get ready for anything!
My advice to students of English
Don’t be afraid of making mistakes! As long as you get your ideas across, no one really cares (except the teachers of English).
Three things I like
Common sense, rajská sauce, gardening
My favourite English word
“sort of” – I don’t know if it’s my favourite English expression but it definitely is the most frequent one.
My favourite Czech word
“rajská” (omáčka, zahrada, Beáta, ...)
Something special about me
I’ve lived in England, Germany, France and Portugal and you know what? The Czech Republic’s the best place for living anyway. So yes, I am a patriot!
What I like most about P.A.R.K.
P = Professionalism
A = the Atmosphere
R = Reliability
K = Knowledge
