Polish teachers


A Polish language course must be effective and produce the required results. The learning process should arouse enthusiasm and student satisfaction with their acquisition of new skills. That's why Edu & More, in creating our Polish language courses for foreigners, pay heed to such factors as an interesting curriculum, up-to-date tried-and-tested teaching materials, use of technology, and a motivating learning atmosphere in appropriate premises.

First of all, we've built a team of well-prepared Polish language teachers who not only have the requisite knowledge, but also the skills, abilities and passion for their work. The teachers are a team that likes working together. They are creative, willing to take on new challenges, always creating new materials for learning Polish, and refining those they've already prepared.

We are proud of our pioneering work in the use of modern technology for teaching Polish. We are delighted by the insights of students after class that they did not think that Polish lessons could be like THIS.

  • - a philological higher education and specialisation in language teaching,
  • - a minimum of one year experience in conducting lessons in Polish as a foreign language,
  • - ongoing collaboration with the school Edu & More,
  • - enthusiasm and personal etiquette,
  • - ability to work in a team and share knowledge and best practice,
  • - attention to each student,
  • - ability to motivate students to make the effort to reach successive levels of proficiency,
  • - knowledge and skills relating  to state-of-the-art technologies, including the blended learning  approach and the virtual classroom,
  • - continuous teacher skill improvement.
Karolina Michalczyk
zdjęcie lektoraKarolina has conducted more than 7000 lessons. She has been working for Edu & More School for three years. She is specialised in teaching beginner and intermediate groups. She gives classes to both Slavic and mixed groups. Karolina creates interesting materials for teaching Polish, which inspire students to think creatively and to work well during classes. She can integrate and activate every group very well!

Teaching Polish as a foreign language is not only my job, it's also a pleasure and a hobby. I prepare every lesson for foreigners with a lot of passion and involvement. I always try to bring a friendly atmosphere to the classroom, so that my students can feel comfortable. My aim is to make lessons interesting and full of energy. I observe the progress made by my students with relish and satisfaction. Step by step, they break their language barriers and start to speak Polish better and better!
I love to travel. Thanks to this job, I'm in constant contact with cultures from around the world. This is how I mix my passion with work. I can honestly say that I have found what I would like to do in my life.
I think that Karolina is a great professor. She is always energetic, friendly and patient. She handles well the different groups she has and continues to seek for better examples. If I can choose, I will probably continue taking classes with her as long as possible because I really like her as a professor.

I am sure that people are different from one another, which is why I approach every student individually. That makes my work free of routine – I try to find an appropriate and pleasant way of learning for every student. I understand that learning Polish is a challenge, but I believe that it can be an adventure too! I appreciate creativity and curiosity in perception of the world. A positive and cheerful atmosphere plays an important role in my lessons. I treat teaching Polish for foreigners as a challenge – I search for attractive methods of learning through play.

I still like what I do. I try to teach my students in a way that I would like to be taught – in an interesting and efficient way. In my work, I underline involvement, empathy, humour and listening skills. I prefer an individual approach to every student.

Dominika Uliczka
zdjęcie lektoraShe has run more than 5000 Polish lessons with foreigners.
She has been working for Edu & More for over four years.
She specialises in teaching beginners groups in Polish, creating language games, and creative teaching materials. She runs Polish language lessons for institutional and business clients, and Polish language lessons in a virtual classroom.
She has prepared many students for the state exam in Polish language.
She also conducts preparatory courses for international ECL exam in Polish language.

Four years ago Warsaw became my new home. My students are in a similar situation. That's why it's important for me that they feel good here, both with the others in the group during the Polish language course and in daily contacts with Poles. I work on my students quickly overcoming the language barrier and understanding, despite appearances, that Polish has a very logical structure.
My studies gave me the appropriate background knowledge for work, and teaching in practice has shown me that a teacher's work is primarily work with another person, their character, expectations, fears, and the whole world they bring with them. I'm interested in: my little homeland – Silesia, the variety of cultures and traditions around the world, music, and Polish.
Dominika has delivered an outstanding training, very clear and always she answered my question in a very professional way and attitude.

Hector Pantoja, Mexico (Polish language group course, A1 – A2 levels)
I'd like to express my gratitude to Dominika for all her efforts and continuous patience to my Ukraine-kind pronunciation of the Polish words. Though I feel much more confident in the society in a 1 month (!!!) after starting the language course.

Polish teaching is my job and my passion. I try to make my lessons as interesting as possible. I want a positive atmosphere in the classroom. I like showing that Polish may not be the easiest language in the world, but you really can learn it. I work at Edu & More because the method of combining online learning with work in lessons at the school is very effective. I also appreciate the relaxed atmosphere at Edu & More.
I should especially express my gratitude and appreciation to Ewa, my teacher. With her high competence and skills in teaching as well as her debonair and friendly manner, she makes learning Polish a great fun for us, rather than a burden. Thanks a lot Edu&More, thanks a lot Ewa!”

For me, working as a teacher of Polish is a pleasure and a challenge. I am an energetic person, so I try and make sure that my classes are not monotonous. I make a lot of effort, especially at the initial stage of learning, to break through the language barrier. I also aim for a welcoming atmosphere in the classroom. I am always pleased to observe the progress of my students, who speak better and better every day.
In my work, my favourite thing is that I can not just pass on my knowledge, but also learn and develop. Edu & More creates the conditions for the development and acquisition of new experiences. Working here allows me to teach Polish in a modern, interesting and – most importantly – effective manner. My work as a teacher is also linked with my other passion – publishing.
Kamila is a patient, proactive and smiling teacher. She exhibits strong interpersonal skills and a unique capacity for empathy. These qualities most notably translate in his ability to motivate students to care about their own development and be invested in their language learning improvement.

Teaching Polish as a foreign language is work only in theory. In practice, it's a journey. For me, it's a journey through new, unknown cultures, customs and languages. For my students, it's a journey through the Polish language, new vocabulary and new pieces of grammar. Guiding foreigners on their way from a total lack of understanding of a word, to a safe oasis, where they feel confident and are able to speak Polish – that's an amazing experience!
Olga has been an excellent teacher, who I would highly recommend. She has been well-prepared and flexible in lesson-planning, accommodating of my learning needs while still encouraging me to advance, and we have had great fun. She explains the complexities of Polish very well and learning with her has considerably built my confidence in being able to communicate in Polish.

She graduated in Polish Philology from the University of Warsaw.
 
Conducting classes in Polish for foreigners is a real pleasure for me. I treat each and every class as a new challenge. I try to enthuse my positive energy and smile in every new student. I try to avoid monotony and fatigue in my classes. I always try to show my students that Polish, against all appearances, can be learnt. And, with a proper dose of motivation and will to work, it can be achieved more quickly than we may think.

She graduated in Polish Philology from Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński University in Warsaw.
 

I used to teach Polish as a foreign language in Warsaw's high school for students with Polish roots from the East. There arose my interest in cultural differences, multilingualism, as well as my motivation for further activities. Thanks to Edu & More, I can cultivate my interests and accompany my students in their achievements. By teaching Polish as a foreign language, I can mix work with passion.

She is teaching Polish, History and Social Studies in a secondary school. For many years Iwona has been an examiner for Polish school-leaving examination (Matura Exam) from Polish.
 

Three years ago I discovered a new passion - I became the Polish language teacher. I came to the conclusion that a negative meaning of saying: “ May you teach alien children” must be changed into an honest wish with a positive significance ”May you teach foreigners!”.

Sylwia Chojnowska
zdjęcie lektoraSylwia has conducted more than 800 lessons in Polish for foreigners. She has been working for Edu&More School for almost a year. She runs courses for beginners.
She is a graduate in Polish Philology, specialisation: teaching Polish as a foreign language, from the University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn.
 

I started to gain my experience in teaching during my studies, as I was giving classes at the university. Teaching is my big passion. Patience, understanding, kindness, tolerance and empathy are the main features of my work. I'm a friendly and enthusiastic person, open to other cultures and entirely involved in my work. In my opinion, making a student interested in a new language, encouraging them to experiment and showing them true support should come first.

Languages are my passion and working as a language teacher gives me the opportunity to live according to Confucius’s maxim: ''Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.'' I am a cheerful, open-minded and ambitious person, who persistently strives to achieve my goals. As a teacher, I want to enthuse students with my passion. This is why working with foreigners gives me huge enjoyment and satisfaction, especially when I see how Polish becomes ''less foreign'' to them and, simply, how much pleasure they can take out of it.
