Karolína earned her bachelor’s degree in English Language and Literature and Japanese Studies in Brno and now she is pursuing a master's program in the former. She loves travelling, trying out foreign cuisines and then recreating the recipes at home. Nevertheless, she always enjoys going back home to South Moravia – she has a close relationship to the folklore of the region, because she used to work as a guide in an open-air museum. She prefers teaching over being a guide because she enjoys the interaction with students, and she likes to use a lot of pictures, flashcards, and games in her classes. After gaining experience in Czech Courses Prague, she is now excited to bring the school to her beloved city of Brno!
