At some point during their studies at academic high school in Kadaň, Jakub Jan Fiala and Ondřej Kočan decided that their standard-issue course material did not fit their needs. They decided to change the sad state of affairs by authoring their own English-language textbook – Improve Yourself. In other words, they embarked on a long journey that would take them to the limits of what your average high school student might hope to accomplish. And they prevailed.
The Foundation awarded a grant to Jakub and Ondřej in 2018 that made it possible for them to further develop their project. In June 2018, they published their very own English textbook for autodidacts.
