FREE TRIAL LESSON IN ENGLISH OR FRENCH
It’s a 30-to-60-minute long conversation where I check your skill level: speaking, writing, listening and reading, grammar and vocabulary, find what your strengths are and what we need to work on.
I wil also ask you questions to find out more about you, your interests, passions, personal and professional goals.
We also discuss classroom rules and cancellation policy.
I design each of my classes with you based on this assessment, the progress you make, your current skills, needs and interests.
PASSIONATE ONE-TO-ONE ONLINE ENGLISH AND FRENCH CLASSES
& GROUP CONVERSATION CLASSES
General English and / or French classes to help you make progress in your target language, overcome language barriers, start communicating with confidence with other language learners, advanced and native language speakers.
You will practise speaking, writing, reading and listening to be able to communicate effectively verbally and non-verbally. You will enrich your vocabulary and learn grammar in CONTEXT. I never teach grammar just for the grammar’s sake.
You will become more familiar with your strengths and take advantage of what you already know. My job is to show you what tools you already have at hand, give you the ones you need, show you how to use them and encourage you to do so. All of this takes place
in a friendly, encouraging and creative atmosphere.
Learning a language becomes an adventure and a lifestyle.
I use authentic materials, I also design my own materials, based on the student’s current level, interests and needs. We also explore different accents so that the student can feel at ease while communicating with speakers from all over the world.
Students want to be able to talk about what matters to them and do it in a similar way as in their own language. My classes are personalized, we explore different topics and current events. In addition, I personally love talking about social issues.
However, I never impose any topic on my students.
Speaking a language fluently is not about being a robot. You use different tools at your disposal and you become aware of many different OPTIONS, for example how you can use synonyms, idioms, describe the same situation in many different ways.
ENGLISH FOR PSYCHOTHERAPISTS
We will discuss topics relevant to your psychotherapy practice.
You will use roleplays to become more comfortable discussing those topics with your potential English-speaking clients and a supervisor.
You will feel more at ease taking part in international conferences, workshops and other important events where English is the language of communication.
I've been working with psychotherapists since 2017 to help them improve their language skills
and increase their confidence level in English.
POZNAN MOPED TOURS IN ENGLISH OR FRENCH
I am a huge fan of riding a moped and I actually own one.
You will be able to visit my city while having fun riding a moped with me as your driver and your guide.
I will show you some famous, as well as, less well known but equally
unique places in Poznan, usually not visited by tourists.
All of this in English or French.
It will be an excellent opportunity for you to learn some interesting vocabulary in context, in a really entertaining way.
ENGLISH OR FRENCH THROUGH ART
For art lovers: you can practise and improve your English or French skills while discussing art in a natural conversation.
I am a painter myself (you can have a look at my artistic website: https://ikolbuszewska.wixsite.com/heartearnedskills) and I follow really closely many other excellent painters and sketchers.
You will become familiar with some really great artists, discover their little secrets and techniques, get to know some interesting (and pretty unusual) vocabulary while practising your English or French.
DRAWING WORKSHOPS IN ENGLISH OR FRENCH
These workshops are designed for those who would like to go back to the drawing board (or to their sketchbook) and practise their English or French at the same time.
If you feel you "can't draw" and your fear of producing a "disaster drawing"
is holding you back, I will show you how to overcome these obstacles.
You will see that you don't actually need any special talent to produce
a drawing you can be satisfied with.
You will learn in a friendly and positive atmosphere the basics of perspective, colour, lines, marks and shapes as well as contrast and put it all into practice.
These workshops are for
intermediate, upper-intermediate and advanced English or French speakers.
