My name is Silvie Opatrná and I am a native Czech speaker. I was born in Prague and lived in the Czech Republic until the age of 18.
I have been teaching Czech to private students since 1999 on an individual
basis and in small groups of up to eight students. During that time I have
been designing lesson plans based on individual student needs and interests
and writing handouts to help students with specific grammar points and to
give them additional practice.

In addition to providing individual instruction, I teach Conversational Czech courses at the University of Washington Experimental College in Seattle and Seattle Central Community College.
My services include:
translations from Czech to English and English to Czech
help with genealogical research
assistance with correspondence for those who have Czech relatives and friends
teaching strategies of Czech pronunciation for opera singers
