Cześć! My name is Lucyna, I'm certified Polish language teacher.
I graduated from Jagiellonian University in Cracow. I have got a master's degree in Teaching Polish as a Foreign and Second Language. Since 2015 I’ve been teaching Polish in leading language schools in Kraków, f.ex. Glossa and Varia, giving classes at the companies (Teacher In-company) and working as Polish Language Lecturer in two universities: Atma Jaya University of Indonesia and University of Lisbon. Currently I teach Polish to foreign students in Wroclaw University of Science and Technology and I run private online classes.
I am open and cheerful person. In my free time I like to discover places, meeting people, knowing their lifestyles and ways of dealing with reality. And I LOVE my job:)
I have got experience in teaching a wide variety of students – adults, teenagers, 50+ students, children, youngers willing to study in Poland, businessman. I run individual and group classes, short and long term, standard and intensive courses and classes online (!). Teaching students in such various situations and contexts taught me flexibility and creativity in adapting to different situations and people's needs.
My classes are intensive and creative:) I always support the student in analysing the grammar and practising communication skills.
I believe the self-confident is crucial in the language learning process. So...NEVER be afraid of speaking!
To reach that goal, the classes are created in a way which gives the student lots of opportunities for speaking. Nevertheless we don't forget about developing all the language skills, that's why we work on listening, reading, writing and speaking as well. The purpose is comprehensible and effective interpersonal communication.
The lessons are very dynamic, we never waste time!;)
We practice vocabulary and grammar in many different ways by playing with words and new constructions. I encourage the student to experiment with the language, discover more structures and meanings, so that his/her new knowledge reaches long-term memory very quickly.
On every class, we REPEAT what we already know and always finish lesson having NEW SKILLS.
Despite the dynamic pace, there is always time for necessary reflection and the friendly atmosphere is conducive to asking questions.
I look forward to meeting you on the online classes!
