Hello! My name is Lucie and I am passionate about teaching languages to anyone who wants to learn. I have lived in Prague, the Czech Republic for 12 years now and love this beautiful city. I have just joined Verbalplanet but have been teaching since 1979 (40 years) so have a great deal of experience and have taught thousands of happy students with great success.
I was born in Sweden, to Czech parents but moved to London, England, so I am bilingual in English as well as Czech. I am a mother of three and a grandmother of three. I am a very lucky lady! I speak 6 languages and teach 4 of them: English, Czech, German and French. Everyone is different, so I teach according to what you want and need. We have fun each lesson while you make good progress and improve all your skills.
I teach all ages, am extremely patient and speak with a clear and concise British accent. I am offering a free trial lesson – so come and have a go and have some fun learning with me!
I look forward to teaching you!
I have a BA Honours degree, TESOL Oxford qualification (for teaching English as a second language) and I am a fully qualified British teacher for Modern Languages.
I was also a freelance Interpreter for the UK Police Force, Immigration, Social services, the courts and the Home office and NCIS in the UK for 25 years.
I have taught in the UK in:
International schools (in Prague, the Czech Republic)
But have been working for myself teaching English, German, French and Czech for the last 9 years.
I am very keen to teach you what you want and need. I am a very patient teacher and am able to explain grammar structures and language simply and easily. I can teach you English grammar and also the four skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking, as well as pronunciation via elocution. I can suggest good books, which we can both use and follow as you make progress.
I am able to guide you with: essay writing, power-points, reports, telephone calls, emails, letters, business English or proof-read what you have written. I am also able to teach you how to present speeches clearly and concisely, so your audience understand you and is interested in what you say. I offer conversation and vocabulary in many topics, due to my years of teaching and my personal and professional experience.
My motto is to learn, improve and at the same time to have fun and laugh.
