Anna is the founder and head teacher of Everyday Czech. She has been teaching Czech to foreigners since 2012 and she still enjoys it very much. She is delighted by daily interaction with foreigners and helping them to immerse into Czech culture. With her husband, she spent a year in Vietnam which, besides other things, helped her to understand students who are trying to learn an extremely difficult language and immersing themselves into a completely different culture. Unlike most of her students, Anna gave up learning Vietnamese after only one month, but the experience was eye-opening. Since then, she makes her lessons even more interactive and playful with the focus on conversation and practical usage.
At this moment Anna is enjoying being a mom to her little daughter, thus she established a group of very talented, patient and entertaining teachers who continue to spread the founding mission of Everyday Czech.
As the Director of Business Communications, Brett strives to facilitate a personal touch with each and every student and Corporate partner alike. Maintaining an open-minded outlook on ways to help improve the student experience gives him motivation to continue in his role. Being a small fish in a big pond of mega schools here in Prague, he sets out to have the edge over the rest through his willingness to listen to his students feedback and cooperate with them to incorporate helpful and worthy improvements in methodology and new ways to deliver exciting materials.
Brett’s also a native English teacher, and has taught at various levels including private schools, Universities, and language schools. He enjoys ushering his students along their language journey, and thrives in interactive situations. Seeing his students realise that ‘Ah-ha’ light-bulb moment as they learn and understand a new language point makes all their collective work worthwhile.

She is currently teaching Czech for the third year (she likes to teach groups and individuals). She originally studied Czech studies at the Faculty of Arts, Charles University, but instead of a master’s program she is now studying screenwriting at FAMU.

When she teaches, she knows that this is the only time she lives in complete presence.

I am from Jihlava, a city on the very border of Bohemia and Moravia, and I am still fascinated by how much Czech language differs even between individual regions. I moved to Prague to study. First I studied Czech and music education at PedF UK, my main field was playing the violin, which I have been doing for almost twenty years. Now I have decided to add another field to it, and in my second year I am studying psychology at the same faculty. In addition to Czech language courses, I work as a care taker in a children’s group, where I am responsible for children as young as one. I apply all my experience in the preparation of lessons, for example, I like to use Czech songs in teaching. When I have a moment for myself, I like to practice yoga or have a nice evening with an interesting book. I also like to play music with my father and other friends who are musicians in the evening by the campfire or in the local pub.
