About Me

Cześć! My name is Łukasz (yep, with the strange Polish first letter!). In 2012, I completed my postgraduate studies ‘Teaching Polish as Foreign Language’ from the University of Warsaw, with the highest attainment. I subsequently spent four years teaching Polish to individuals from all over the world.

Currently, I work as an editor at a popular-science magazine. In my free time, I work with foreigners teaching them Polish and the culture of Poland. I also train my students how to survive in my home city – beautiful Warsaw.

I enjoy working with foreigners. My past and current students include Romanians (including one cheerful 11-year-old boy), Germans, Brazilians, Latvians, Japanese, Greeks, Hungarians, Swiss, Indians, Canadians, French, American and Italians.

I am fascinated by linguistics in general. The structure of the language, grammar and etymology were always my points of interests. Knowing how my own language works I am able to explain it easier to the others. I also understand how important is to tailor personalized lessons. That is why I prepare a lot of exercises dedicated to my students’ needs.

I love meeting people. I am always curious about their culture and customs and I love sharing my knowledge about Poland and Polish traditions. My interest in linguistics leads me to learning new languages.

I am actually a language geek! Besides English and Latin I have been learning French and Spanish for years. I also studied Turkish for few months. This language really fascinates me – its regularity is almost unreal.

I graduated from University of Warsaw with a Masters in International Relations in 2005. I defended my thesis on ‘Argentine Republic role in international relations from 1981 to 2001’.

In my free time I also like to play tennis and sweat in a CrossFit box.
