Hi! My name is Waleria, I am a certified linguist and translator offering personalised Polish classes to all levels from beginners to advanced.
I was always passionate about different cultures and keen on learning new languages. This passion carried me through my education in Poland, where I graduated from the University of Warsaw with a BA in Applied Linguistics. My biggest dream of living abroad suddenly became true, when in 2018 I moved to London and completed my MA in Specialised Translation the following year.
I see any language as a tool to get closer to other people, discover their culture, break stereotypes, and expand personal borders. I know from experience that moving abroad or living in a foreign country can feel hopeless sometimes. That's why it is so important to build strong language foundations and confidence when using it.
I believe in personalising my teaching style to each individual student - everyone learns best a different way! In that vein, I use a mixture of visual, audio and written tools to enhance the language-learning process, and I also believe that oral practice is very important. I like to keep my lessons fresh and fun.
