What I like about teaching
I simply like working with my students. I believe that there is hardly anything more rewarding than seeing your students making real progress.
My advice to students of English
Forget Czech intonation. Learn the meaning of the term Czenglish. Keep motivated. And make sure to give your teacher a Christmas present. People say that this brings good luck.
Three things I like
liquorice, Blur, Flight of the Conchords
My favourite English word
My favourite word in English is a swell. On the other hand, the English phrase I truly hate the most is as flat as a pancake. I use these terms every summer when I go surfing abroad.
My favourite Czech word
My favourite word in Czech is cvíboch. It’s a special kind of cake which my grandma always makes when I come to visit her.
Something special about me
My dad used to be a professional fencer and I used to fence for some time as well.
What I like most about P.A.R.K.
P.A.R.K. is for me a place of actual learning. Both students and teachers are learning new things here every day and that’s why I like it.
