Czech in Seattle

"Silvie is a great
teacher and made our lessons both thorough
and fun. While she
tailored my lessons to
my specific needs and
the purpose of my trip
to the Czech Republic,
she stressed grammar fundamentals. Learning with her made me want
to continue to learn
more advanced
grammar as well as improve my speaking skills."
