Hi there. My name is Jiří. I am 25 (27 now) years old. English is my first language, and French is my second. I was born in the Czech Republic, but since the age of 3, I have lived abroad, mostly in England and France.
Bonjour tout le monde. Je m'appelle Jiří. J'ai 25 ans (27 ans maintenant). L'anglais est ma première langue et le français ma deuxième. J'étais né en République tchèque, mais depuis l'âge de 3 ans, j'habitais à l'étranger, principalement en Angleterre et en France.
Me as a Teacher
Whilst living in France, I was constantly asked by friends and colleagues for translations of words and phrases from English to French, and even had the opportunity of tutoring a few students in person, an experience that I enjoyed greatly. It is very fulfilling to see the progress that they have made with my help, and their determination to learn.
Pendant le temps que j'étais en France, mes amis et mes collègues m'ont demandé tout le temps pour des traductions de mots et de phrases en anglais, et j'ai même eu l'opportunité de donner des cours particuliers à quelques étudiants, une expérience que j'ai beaucoup appréciée. C'est très gratifiant de voir les progrès qu'ils ont accomplis.
My lessons & teaching style
I am a very relaxed tutor. The learning process can often be very stressful already, I do not want to add to that.
The first time we speak to eachother, I will ask you exactly what it is that you wish to learn, and perhaps why, and some questions about your own interests too. This will allow me to structure our conversations in such a way as to eventually fulfil your goals of speaking your desired language as fluently and as confidently as possible.
It does not matter what language or languages you currently speak, all that you need is the willpower to learn, and somebody to talk to.
Good luck, and never stop learning!
