Teaching in P.A.R.K. since: I've been teaching in P.A.R.K. since September 2018.

What I like about teaching:
The sheer exhilaration on the student's face when they get something they struggled with in the past and then seeing them use it in their own production.
My advice to students of English?
Do what you love doing in Czech, but just do it in English. Love playing PC games? Do it in English. Do you love cooking? Sign up for a cooking class in English.
Three things I like
Sleeping, beer, soup and my beard. I know that's four, but ...
My favourite English word
I love the verb "to err". It's just a random sound, really, but in English it's actually a word.
My favourite Czech word
"Kukaň" - to refer to a small room. I love how it uses the interjection "kuk" to refer to a room so small that you can just peek in as there's nothing else you can do there but peek in and leave.
Something special about me:
I used to be an adveturer but then I took an arrow to the knee.
My favorite thing about working in PARK
The staff, the office, the premises and the soup the "school cafe" serves. It always hits the spot!
