Why do you want to test me if you know Polish (-:
But anyway why not to support my weak ego once more time
mira: Grammar is the basis!of every language!
Let me explain my point.
Thirst of all I admit my English is not perfect. I have never taught it. If its level is not acceptable for you I cannot repair it now because I have no time to polish it.
The problem with Polish grammar is that it influences the form of Polish words stronger then in English. That is why a few years ago Polish was taught with too much stress on grammar. You can trust me I graduated Polish Philology Department at the Jagiellonian University and vocational courses for teachers of Polish for foreigners so I know how teachers are taught to teach. To sum up: They get massive grammar theory not a useful tool.
On the other hand you have a “modern” approach. When teaching Polish became a business for private language schools it became popular. The most important thing is FUN in such a school. Thirst of all foreigners have to have fun. If they learn Polish this not so important. They come to Poland for 2 or 4 weeks and they want to spend nice time her. The second factor is that Polish is very often taught by English teachers. They use methods they learned to teach English. And this is wrong too. They do not know Polish grammar at all so they cannot teach it. They love word exception and they overuse it to cover lack of knowledge.
The problem is also that Polish language instructions in general are in a few important points just ****** up (-:
Especially perfective/imperfective verbs.
I will tell you in short what my method is. I teach PhDs, people from American province who really do not care of theoretical digression or very busy business people, my learner are from 20 until over 60 years old and at the beginning I do always the same. I explain to them how to build useful forms form basic forms they can find in the dictionary. When they are able to do it they can tart to speak Polish.
Skype is ideal to do it. Of course not camera and smile I mean but special written exercises and pronunciation.
But of course the devil is in details.
And last but not least. If you take a course at school you pay for it in advance. What a comfort. If you are taught by me you can cancel your lessons after each lesson. And it happens. However I have also clients who cooperate with me over two year (almost each week).
So one’s again sorry that I sound so self-confident but If somebody doubts that grass is green you just became a bit nervous and say that it is just green not red (-:
