Hi,

I offer Polish lessons via Skype.
2 first trial lessons for free so that you can make your mind whether it works for you without spending any money.

If you have any questions, please drop me a message.

Regards,
Anna

There is nobody here on this forum to take up your offer unfortunately. Try one of the Polish job teaching sites. And please don't offer classes for free - you are seriously costing yourself time and money there. I would be inclined to be more self-sure, even if you are going to map out a specific approach such as lessons based on strict needs analysis.

Learners never appreciate the freebie and tend to take the pis.
My take.

Why do you think there is nobody to take up my offer? I would think that's just the right place....
Thanks for your advice, but don't worry, there is a logic behind free trail lessons. I appreciate my time, that's why it's offered.

This forum is full of PolAms. By the way, Polish is such a hard language that I am impressed that you can teach it remotely. Wouldn't work for me. Same as piano lessons - got to be there.

Yes the participants here either already know Polish pretty well or don't want to.. maybe at one time but that was a long time ago.

don't want to.

So who "doesn't want to"?

Haha, it seems there is no agreement on what has been said about who wants to learn/ who speaks/ and who doesn't speak and wants to learn Polish. Maybe there will be a volunteer to make a survey :) then all will be clear :)

who wants

It's Mafeketis way of feeling good, chastising those who stay on in the pub socialising, while he has to get back to his library 😂

He would know that most of us are reading and writing learners, and some us have/had a job to do, plus reading to the nipper at bedtime.

In English. Also there was the temptation that one couldn't be arsed.
Now, is Eric Clapton's album "Slowhand" a load of drunken country cack, or an audiophiles' dream, being well engineered, as it undeniably was?
That is a far more interesting question than whether the biernik declension should be used as to walking the dog, or when the dog is walking me.

Sorry Doug but I see no excuse for anyone not to learn a language of a country they live in. Well, unless they are intellectually retarded. Other than that- pure laziness of the worst kind.

Those who just don't like Polish as a language..... or regard it as a necessary evil.

intellectually retarded. Other than that- pure laziness

Every single excuse for not becoming reasonably fluent (able to read newspapers, understand the news, deal with the bureaucracy without an interpreter) comes down to some combination of dumb (including intellectual stagnation) and laziness. There's also personal dislike but that raises the question of why someone would remain in a language environment that's unpleasant for them? I like French much less than other Romance languages which is the main reason I wouldn't want to live there (though Spain, Italy, Portugal or even Romania would be fine).

That's me. It requires work, and I'm listening to the Clapton record. I recommend it!

Tri-City, and Katowice, before that, were my home.
Has anybody ever told you that you can be an insufferably smug txxx?
I wouldn't dream of asking you why you settled in some small Polish town, and I will thank you to keep your nose out my little world at the same time. Thanks!

I'm learning Polish and I read these forums pretty regularly. If I did'nt already have teacher then I would have been interested. I'm sure there are other people who are learning Polish who might also visit here.

Right on, Lenka!

@szkocki, I take from your handle you're Scottish or at least from Scotland?
