My name is Anna Siciarek and I am teacher of Polish for foreigners. I‘ve been teaching Polish for almost 10 years.

I graduated from Jagiellonian University in Cracow (2002) and I completed postgraduate studies in teaching Polish as a foreign language at the Warsaw University (2020).

I am a state examiner of Polish as a foreign language.  

I’ve created my own website www.tounderstandpolish.com to develop my original, holistic method of learning Polish. 

I believe that, in order to improve student’s language skills, learners must practice Polish language in structures and approach words in a context, while, at the same time, increasing their awareness of the ways in communication strategies. 

First of all, beginners must undrestand what’s going on in Polish language, so all the comments are in English.
