My name is Jana Vankova and I will guide you through the first English steps.
I finished high school just after the Velvet Revolution. Until then, as a nation we had no opportunity to travel freely, so I decided to go to Canada immediately after graduation, where I started studying English.
And there it happened. I fell in love with this amazing language. So much so that I started teaching it. In the meantime, I also graduated from Charles University, raised 2 children and started a family logistics company.
I love working with children, teens and adults. That’s why I organized many summer and winter camps with intensive English courses. For more than 10 years I have been a proud teacher at Bell School and a year as principaless at the Kids & Us Malešice language school. Now I teach at kindergartens, schools, universities and companies. I also prepare students for Cambridge exams (FCE, CAE, CPE, BEC, etc.).
English is a game in my lessons. I use modern methods of experimental teaching. If students don’t laugh at my lessons, something is wrong. I follow the motto that a student will remember much more if he or she experiences lessons with all the senses. That is why I prepare each lesson individually according to the current needs of my students.
In addition to teaching, I also love time with my family when hiking, cycling or skiing in the Krkonoše mountaines. I also play volleyball and beach volleyball.
I am looking forward to meet you, my friends.
