Tereza has many passions, first is Czech language and literature (not just Czech); she loves to discover secrets of language and introduce them to others. Her second passion is interacting with people – of all nations, cultures or ages. Teaching Czech is a perfect combination of these two passions – she can share her language with all its secrets and uncover different cultures at the same time. Because though there are differences, we all have something in common – and it is laughter. With laughter we can learn the most.
