The Czech Heritage Museum & Genealogy Center will offer Czech language workshops taught by Lt. Ethan Gleue.
“Lt. Gleue taught some grammar workshops before his deployment earlier this year, which for some, were a bit advanced,” said Susan Chandler, museum administrator. “He has returned and this time we are going to start with very basic skills and move forward from there.”
First Lieutenant Ethan Gleue is an Attack Platoon Leader and Apache Pilot with Charlie Company, 1-227th Attack Reconnaissance Battalion, 1st Air Cavalry Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division assigned to Fort Hood, TX.
“I love studying the Czech language, experiencing Czech culture, and sharing that with others. The Czech Heritage Museum provides a great venue to share that love and support a worthy organization,” said Gleue.
Ethan served a two-year mission trip in the Czech Republic and Slovakia where he learned Czech and Slovak. He lived in several cities throughout the region including Ostrava, Prague, Olomouc, Brno, Zlin, and Banska Bystrica.
Ethan has returned to the Czech Republic and Slovakia several times, including a summer semester at Charles University in 2014.
Most recently Ethan returned from a 9-month rotational deployment to Europe with the 1st Air Cavalry Brigade where he traveled to the Czech Republic and other neighboring countries to train with NATO allies and deter Russian aggression.
“I will be taking a short break for my wedding to my beautiful fiance, Sarah King, on September 2, but I’m eager to teach Czech language classes this summer and fall at the museum, said Gleue.”
Workshops are free. Donations are appreciated.
