My philosophy of language teaching:
I would like to challenge students with different concepts and perceptions, and to make them rethink their own language, culture and life.

Other interests: 
Animals and pets; Books: mostly literary works of various genres and all cultures; occasionally scientific writings; Creative writing; Films, including really bad ones so that I can make fun of them.

Favorite websites:
I rarely surf for fun; Internet is no more than a tool for me to find information, and I try NOT to spend too much time on it.
