Interview with the Tutor:
What brought you to the Czech Republic, and what made you to join EUFRAT team?
I came here to pursue my PhD studies at the Charles University, faculty of Medicine in Pilsen.
What is, in your opinion, the mission of a language tutor? To be empathetic and patient with the students, until the point they feel comfortable asking questions, participating and being interested in the topic.
What would your students say about you? Not sure, ask them :)
And how would you describe your students? They are very friendly and open, they like to speak and get very involved in the classes.
Is there a lasting lesson you hope students take from your classes? I'm not sure if I understand the question, but I hope that from my classes not only take the proper knowledge in the language but also the confidence to speak anyone without any shame.
What is, according to you, the best thing about EUFRAT? The friendly staff, the facilities and flexible working hours.
Is there a message you would like to send to your future students? Don't be afraid to even think that learning a new language is difficult, it opens your mind and helps you understand other societies and ways of thinking, it involves you and gives you different opportunities. Start today :)
