In a nutshell, The Plant Method is all about learning language through conversation lessons with a trained teacher.
It stands for Personalised Learning through Acceptance, Nurturing, and Trust. The teacher, whether online or in person, provides a safe place for the language learner to express themselves, all while receiving grammar instruction (when needed), and error correction.
We believe that every language learner has a rich life story, interests, and experiences, and a new language is learned through sharing those thoughts and experiences.
I am Jen Hill, the Founder of The Plant Method.
I come from Alberta, Canada, but I’m glad to call Brno, the Czech Republic, my home.
When I’m not teaching, I’m taking walks in the forest with my partner, Barbora and our dogs, Jerome and Foxie. We like having a beer together and watching sunsets from the terrace of our cottage.
Because we focus on your life and your experiences, you remember and retain new vocabulary and grammar more easily.
Learning through Speaking
Our teachers correct mistakes and errors often in class, and provide grammar as it is needed by the learner.
Trust and Connection
We build relationships of trust between teacher and learner and often have relationships and connections that last years, allowing learners to have a ‘mirror’ of their progress over time
