I mainly use the direct method, which sets successful communication as its primary goal. To help achieve this goal, I speak Polish from the very beginning and encourage my students to do the same. Multiple visual aids, dictionaries, gestures and context allow us to understand each other well.
I can also provide more traditional courses or non-regular consultations for more independent learners (focusing on specific areas of language e.g. on Polish pronunciation, grammar, spelling or text composition) in English or in Polish, according to student’s specific goals and interests.
I have an M. A. in Polish Philology, I graduated in 2012 from The John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin. During my studies there I finished a 2-year course in teaching Polish as a foreign language.
Since then I regularly participate in workshops and conferences to further develop my teaching skills. Detailed information on my education and experience can be found on my LinkedIn profile.
