O události

Mariann Manhertz originates from Budapest, Hungary, and currently resides in Prague, Czechia. Before embarking on her teaching journey at a Montessori elementary school, she completed a master's degree in English language and literature, along with Communication. With a background in the alternative marketing industry in New York and Budapest, Mariann shifted her focus to education following the birth of her two daughters, aiming to bring enjoyment, fun, and positivity into children's learning experiences. She underwent training as a Helen Doron teacher, specializing in a distinctive methodology for teaching second languages from ages 3 months to 19 years old. Over the course of more than ten years, Mariann has dedicated herself to teaching second languages both in a language school and within the Montessori elementary environment.

Mariann's special interest in second language learning stems from actively raising her own two daughters, who fluently speak three languages daily. This personal experience drives her quest to provide as many second language opportunities as possible for her kids and her students in the classroom. In 2021, she attained her Montessori diploma for ages 6 to 12 in Prague and has served as an English-speaking guide at the Montessori School of Andilek since 2019.

In her upcoming talk, Mariann Manhertz will emphasize the importance of considering the needs of elementary children, especially when learning a second language. She aims to discuss her approach to planning lessons, which takes into account the characteristics of 6-12 aged kids. Mariann will showcase how she incorporates engaging activities, such as predicting weather through science demonstrations and participating in art and crafts, to foster understanding and interest. Additionally, she will highlight her method of teaching grammar, focusing on encouraging discovery and rule creation. Furthermore, Mariann will share insights into why English book reading has become popular in her class and how cooking activities can enhance language learning.
