I’m optimistic. I like to be surrounded by people who emit positive energy and at the same time I try to share my joy with them. What I appreciate most in being a teacher is the contact with other people. I adore travelling and discovering new places, sometimes with a guidebook in hand or more often by absorbing their special atmosphere with all my senses. I’m passionate about theatre, I collect masks, I love South-American literature, small cinemas, bicycle and mountain trips, picnics behind the walls of old castles and long sessions of charades or board games with my friends. I get lots of joy and satisfaction when playing with children.
Qualifications and experience:
I graduated from the Jagiellonian University in Polish Philology with specialisation in theatre. My adventure with teaching foreigners started in 2007 when I went to Moldavia to teach children, the young and adults and to animate Polish cultural life in the Polish House in Bălți. After this one year adventure, rich in experience, I came back to Krakow, I completed a post-graduate course in teaching Polish as a foreign language and since then I have been teaching mainly in GLOSSA School of Foreign Languages. I give individual and group lessons at all levels. I got involved with the e-polish.eu website and I participate as a coach in courses for trainee teachers organised regularly by Glossa.
Methods of teaching
In the lesson I focus on communication. I speak English, a bit of French and Russian but in the lesson – in order to make my students dive into the Polish language – I only use gestures and facial expression. With a variety of games and authentic situations role-plays I motivate my students to speak Polish, even if they still have limited vocabulary. I try to make them feel as if they were in a real Polish restaurant, a shop or a post office. I know how important it is to extend and memorise vocabulary so I don’t forget about revisions. But above all I’m sensitive about individual needs of my students and I’m willing to adapt teaching materials as well as the way I manage each lesson to their interests and expectations.
