I have studied languages at the Faculty of
Arts Comenius University in Bratislava. It is the oldest University in
Slovakia. I taught Slovak at Comenius University and at the
University of Vienna. At present I
teach at the Faculty of Mass Media Communication of University of SS.
Cyril and Methodius. In Slovakia I also work as
media and communication coach.
Some people call it
a sixth sense, but academically it is
called non-verbal communication. For
28 years, PhDr. Oľga
her professional career
to the study
language, verbal and non-verbal communication, stylistics, rhetoric,
language and style of mass media, teaching Slovak as foreign language
are among the qualities I possess at
the moment. I am a pioneer in introducing non-verbal
communication into Slovak mass media. I am the author of books
communication, standard Slovak language and of many scientific papers
and articles. Also I wrote a book for foreigners studying Slovak: Pictorial Dictionary of
Slovak Language and Slovak – English, a
Handbook of Conversation. An interdisciplinary approach to my work
is my preference.
I have often been invited as an expert to
speak about communication and the Slovak language in mass media. Also
analyses for mass media body language of politicians and football
coaches have been done by myself. In Slovakia I am a renowned teacher
and coach to help persons and organisational members evaluate and
develop their communicational skills, body language and public
speaking. As a media trainer I deal with politicians, bosses, managers,
spokespersons, lawyers and football coaches.
