More about Anna Cooková
Instructor Anna Cooková lived in the Czech Republic from 1994-2002. Since 2009 she has been offering Community Courses in Czech Language & Culture in Czech-American Communities. Various organizations refer her to translate old family letters and other hand-written documents from the late 1800’s to our 21st century from Czech to English.
