Hi, my name is Agnieszka and I recently joined International House Bristol as a Polish teacher. I teach the Beginner Plus class on Monday evening.
Having completed my two MA diplomas in Polish Literature and Grammar as well as Philosophy I had decided to go to Bristol for Summer holidays in 2008 and... I stayed till now. I truly loved this vibrant and diverse city and cannot imagine living anywhere else at the moment. In my class you will find me trying really hard to explain Polish grammar that is so different to other languages, using listening, speaking, writing and reading skills as well as learning lots of vocabulary. My students have opportunity to watch some extra videos at home and are well motivated by learning Polish culture and history. I always try to tailor my lessons to the current needs of my students, so people learn what they actually are interested in.Since moving to Bristol I engaged in many projects within Polish community, such as Polish Supplementary School, where I have been working since 2008, Polish radio, and many cultural events. I have also been teaching Polish and English to adults as a private tutor. On the daily basis I also work in primary school in Horfield. In my free time I love riding my bike, reading books, drinking coffee and meeting new people from all over the world.
