Hi! My name is Jitka /ˈjɪtkʌ/ and I’m an online teacher. I help my students fall in love with languages and find out what works for them in language learning.
I teach English and Czech. I offer English courses for individuals and pairs (you can learn English with your friend, how cool!). I run Czech group courses for Brits who have Czech family. I help them to grasp the basics so they can communicate with their relatives in Czech.
We all have different talents, but I believe that everyone can learn a foreign language, including you! You just need to find a little bit of time regularly. Stop being afraid of making mistakes (mistakes are fine; they help us improve but they must not stop us from speaking). Ideally, you need a kind, encouraging teacher who will make you speak a lot during the lessons and require you to practise at home. Somebody like me. ☺️
I come from Czechia, but Edinburgh, Scotland, has been my second home since 2016. ♥ I have a MA degree (Mgr.) from Charles University in Prague, Czechia, where I studied English, French and Czech.
Besides languages (I speak French, too, and a tiny bit of Spanish), I love cycling, wild swimming, exploring new places (castles especially), taking photos, cooking and baking, playing around with macramé and crochet.
