About

I have been a professional journalist for about 20 years. I write about society, business, medicine, science, education, culture, and sport. In 2013 I started teaching Russian and Polish for LOS. I would like to share my work and teaching experience by improving your listening, writing, and speaking skills. During my online classes, you will better understand the Russian and Polish culture and benefit from business possibilities that these two beautiful countries are offering. My approach to using Russian and Polish is very practical, as my professional career has always been connected to these languages. I’m also fluent in Czech and English.
