Woof Woof! Welcome to ZŠ Pod Marjánkou!

On Monday 21st April 2008 a dog called Baryk visited our school! He prepared some puzzles and games for about one hundred children from the 2nd classes of different schools who would like to learn foreign languages with us from next year! Finally, eighty of them were successful and they promised to walk Baryk regularly from next September! We look forward to meeting them again on our walks!

Teaching practice - evaluation II

The teaching practice was something that I really looked forward to, however I was slightly afraid of it. It was an opportunity to try something new. I didn’t know anything about the school I had chosen, and I had never taught before.
At the beginning I was surprised. The pupils were very cooperative and they all tried hard. I was quite nervous, but they helped me to overcome the problems. Some of the lessons were not so good, but some of them were perfect and I really enjoyed them.
I’d like to thank Ms Prokopova for her advice and opinions which were great contribution to my learning how to teach. And I’d like to thank the pupils, because their kindness and success supported my decision to become a teacher.

Teaching practice evaluation (25.3.- 4.4.2008)

When I signed for my very first teaching practice, I was really scared. As I had never taught before, I was afraid of everything – of students, their questions, of the lessons, of the atmosphere and first of all, I was afraid of myself. Will I know all the answers to all possible questions, will I know how to deal with possible problems? However, as my time at the elementary school „Pod Marjankou“ went by, Ms Prokopova and the pupils managed to show me, with no special effort, that teaching isn´t that horrible as I had thought before, and that it can be actually fun. Of course, no one dares to doubt that it is a hard and time-demanding job. On the other hand, it is one of the few jobs which results are so obvious. To see „my“ students actually using new grammar structures made me forget the anxiety in which I was imprisoned in the beginning. And that is a reward I did not even expect.
