My name is Klára Daňková an I teach Czech - for foreigners, for life.
Although my story as a professional linguist of Czech started much earlier, it became more important in the year 2014. At that time, I had the opportunity to learn Czech as a foreign language for the first time. It did not take long before my initial enthusiasm drifted me towards a new direction in life.
I have been continuously expanding my specialization from Czech language towards didactic and adult education. Thanks to my participation in various educational projects, I have also expanded my horizons in digital education. Since 2016, I have been a certified lecturer in the “Towards Successful Seniority” programme - a world-renowned method of proactive coaching focused on work-life balance, an active approach to stress management, and motivation for personal or career development.
However, whenever I changed my focus from the Czech language to different subjects, it returned to me like a boomerang. I think everybody knows when his job is more than just a job, when it is a lifestyle. So here I am and I teach Czech. Czech with Klara, Česky s Klárou.
I believe that the lecturer should not be just a teacher but also a guide that encourages and motivates students. I base my lessons on a friendly and informal atmosphere . I make sure to show all my students the diversity and beauty of Czech, so I often use authentic materials that reflect the particular situations of everyday life.
The methods I build on are not only based on the principles of clarity and systematicity, but also on the interconnection of theory and practice. Interactivity and communicative approaches are an obvious part of every lesson, so you don't have to worry about boring drills. The variety and diversity of teaching are my goals.
Today, I have a wealth of experience in teaching all levels of students - from beginners to advanced – and across nationalities from all continents. The satisfied graduates of my courses are constantly confirming that my work presents results and, above all, has purpose. That's why Czech with Klara, Česky s Klárou.
There are several variants.
Currently, I teach Czech for foreigners in group or individual intensive courses. The course can be arranged privately, or you can sign up for an open term, which is posted several times a year. If you are interested in Czech lessons, please write me an e-mail or follow my Instagram profile for relevant information.
Group lessons are the most useful because you can work with the dynamics of the whole group and you will practice more by involving the group into the activities. These courses are focused on the practicality of everyday life in the Czech Republic.
Individual intensive courses are suitable for those who need to quickly reach a certain language level, for example, due to an upcoming exam. In this case, the goal and the approach is planned according to the needs and time options of the student. Flexibility is a large part of the approach.
