Irina Cimová

Teacher of Czech as an Additional Language

After moving to Prague I started to teach Russian Language and later  also Czech Language for Russians and Ukrainians privately and in cooperation with language schools.  

During all these years I was thinking about the substance of the learning and teaching process. What is that which makes us good teachers or good learners? In order to learn more about human psychology I studied Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy during 2010-2015 years. It was a rewarding experience! Also I study Methodology of Czech Language for Foreigners in order to be informed about all news in this area. 

I joined Park Lane in November 2021 as a Teacher of Russian Language and continue as a CAL Teacher at Secondary School. I have a passion for teaching and learning and appreciate the rewarding (enriching?) environment both for students and teachers.

In my free time I enjoy everything related to art and travelling: exhibitions, books, music (classic and modern, independent)… I also enjoy knitting and cooking and meeting with my two sons – we always have a lot to discuss
