Renee Selikowitz, teacher, British Council, Prague

Renee Selikowitz

Corporate Courses Coordinator

I've been working for the British Council in Prague since 2010, where I teach all levels and ages. I am an examiner for the Cambridge English Starters, Movers and Flyers exams for kids, as well as the PET, FCE and CAE exams for teens and adults. I've worked as a senior teacher, responsible for observations, mentoring, training and resource development; taught marketing and financial English at a private university, and worked as a TEFL trainer. 

Shane Egan, British Council teacher of English

Shane Egan

I am Shane and I come from Ireland. I have been working all over the world since I was 17 when I went to the USA to work as a chef. Since then I’ve had a variety of jobs from playing bass guitar in New Orleans to giving literary tours in Oslo. Before I came to Prague I worked in Bucharest which was amazing. I love winter in Prague – I even got married in Prague in winter. Cold weather and warm people - perfect!
