Paulina’s pedagogical approach is clear, directed, comprehensive, and pragmatic. This session was particularly important to my learning progress because it provided me with a concrete measure of my current level of fluency; that being said, as the session progressed, I became increasingly aware of how much more work, practise, and dedication I’d need to reach my goal. Ultimately, knowing this will significantly facilitate the integration of Polish sessions into my current timetable (career-wise). During this class, we reviewed key phrases, rules, and some incredibly fascinating etymological facts (which I find to be the cherry on top of the proverbial milkshake!). One of the things I appreciate most is the fact that Paulina continuously challenges my weakest areas of the language; that, in my heartfelt opinion, is the cornerstone of every great educator. Needless to say, I look forward to further challenging and transcending myself over the sessions to come.
