I am passionate about languages and teaching. I truly believe that learning a second language is an opportunity to discover yourself, discover other people, discover the world.My inspiration is a Czech proverb: "You live a new life for every new language you speak."

My innate curiosity led me to visit and live in different countries. My passion for teaching leads me to share what I learnt with you. I truly believe that ‘learning another language is not only learning different words for the same things, but learning another way to think about things.’
