Hello everybody! My name is Karolína and I am 26 years old. Although I was born and raised in the Czech Republic, I am currently living in Mexico. I love learning languages and discovering new cultures. I have Cambridge certificate and I use Spanish on daily basis since I live in Spanish speaking country and my husband's family and friends are Spanish natives. I would like to point out that I use and teach the Latinoamerican version of Spanish, which is slightly different from Spanish in Spain, especially in terms of accent and some expressions.
Me as a Teacher
I am not going to pretend that I am professional with decades of experience. I am in the second half of my University studies (degree in languages) and besides my Cambridge certificate I have no proof of my skills. But, I have been giving individual lessons for the five past years and many of my clients keep on coming back.
My lessons & teaching style
Every student is different. What I do is to talk to the student get to know him or her and find out his or her level of language in question. Then I ask if there is any specific teaching/learning method that they have tried and liked. If they haven't discovered what works for them I suggest different methods. The most important is that the person is feeling comfortable. I like to use movie/series clips to teach phrasal verbs or idioms; stories and news (whatever my client finds useful and interesting) to practice reading and pronunciation; some audio tracks or podcasts for improving listening comprehension (this would be mostly assigned as HW, but depends on the client); and so on.

I have enjoyed practicing Czech with Karolína over the last several months. We have been using various materials to support conversations, which have helped renew and expand my vocabulary as well as grammar.
