I’m an EFL teacher with more than 20 years of experience with learners of all ages. I hold a BA degree in teaching English as a foreign language to young learners, and an MA degree in TESOL from Masaryk University in Brno, in the Czech Republic. Throughout my career, I have worked in the private as well as the state sector of education. I am currently teaching English to students aged 11 to 19 at a grammar school in the Czech Republic.

I love thought-provoking discussions on ELT topics, education and (applied) linguistics. I am passionate about social media and the plethora of possibilities they offer, and I am constantly seeking opportunities to develop professionally, especially through blogging and connecting with my personal learning network. I am very proud that some of my articles have been published elsewhere too:

Teaching is Measurable, ELT Rants, Reviews, and Reflections, July 2014

Continuous Assessment, TeachingEnglish blog, July 2015

No-prep Activities, TeachingEnglish blog, August 2015

Teaching Teenagers: a Nightmare or a Challenge? The iTDi Blog, February 2016

Go Light! The BELTA Bulletin, Issue 7, Spring 2016 (p.10)

A Perspective That Might Surprise You, The BELTA Bulletin, Issue 9 Autumn 2016 (p.13)

Blogging opened some other opportunities for me. In March 2017, for the first time in my life, I presented at the ILC International House Brno conference



P.S.: I used to be on Blogger in the past, but I couldn’t resist the constant nudging from my fellow ELT bloggers to migrate to WordPress. Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy reading!

    Hello! It is strange and nice to see you here. Please expect a massive increase in comments form me, now that I no longer have the “blogger annoys me” excuse.

  3. Hi Hana. Very nice work indeed. I notice that you published an article entitled No Prep Activities. You might be interested in having a look at my blog Keep It Simple Activities where I offer English teachers Zero o Minimal Preparation Activities. You may consider adding it to your blog roll. Anyway, congrats for your successful blog. And here is the link to my blog: http://www.kisactivities.com
