This course is designed for complete beginners and would also be suitable for those with limited knowledge wanting to consolidate what they already know.

There will be plenty of opportunity to practise spoken Polish through whole class or group work in both formal and informal contexts, with particular emphasis on pronunciation.

Reading and listening to Polish will be an important feature of the course, together with written practice in order to produce short items such as Emails or postcards.

To this end, we will look at short articles, watch video clips, listen to basic authentic Polish conversations and take part in role plays. 

There will also be basic grammar coverage, including noun gender, the present tense, basic use of cases, general vocabulary and word order etc.

Each lesson will give you the opportunity to practise all four skills - speaking, reading, listening and writing and will consolidate on the learning from the previous lesson.

As well as learning about the language and its use and function in everyday situations, we will also be looking at aspects of Polish life and culture and generally gaining confidence in using the language for leisure and pleasure!

I am fluent in all aspects of Polish having been brought up in England by Polish parents.
I have a passion for languages and studied Polish, French and Spanish at school and specialised in French at University. My career evolved around teaching Polish and French in secondary schools and FE colleges, being an Examiner for GCSE Polish Spoken exam, as well as being Head of an ESOL department.
I have taught Polish to adults which started as a short course and extended to almost 2 years and also at Polish Saturday schools.
