Learning Polish around the Philadelphia area?

Hi! Just a little background for better understanding, I'm Polish by third generation and the last person to speak the language is my grandfather, who doesn't bother anymore and speaks to us only in English. I don't even know if he remembers how to speak it anymore. I'm really interested and am falling more and more in love with Poland the more I look into the history and culture, feeling like that's were we should have remained.

With that said, I'm working really hard around college and work trying to teach myself Polish with a book I got called "Polish Verbs & Essentials of Grammar" by Oscar E. Swan. I even have the Rosetta Stone for Polish! The thing is, the computer can't correct me or answer any questions I have or tell me if my accent is good or bad. Working by myself is hard because, again, if I have any questions I have no one to help me answer them.

Does anyone know anywhere around the Philadelphia area where they might teach Polish? I'm going there for a month this summer and I'm trying my best myself, but I could use a little extra help!!

Sorry that this is really long... lol

Polish American Cultural Center at 308 Walnut Street has classes, but maybe not to your time schedule....Talk to Fishtown poster, just don't take any strange kielbasa, if you know what I mean.

I would love to! Would you consider skyping first? For obvious reasons, I'm a bit anxious meeting people from the internet :P Thank you all so much and try to keep me posted!

I'm about to leave for Poland, be back in 3 weeks. If you wish, you can contact me via email.
*Don't have skype, and my idea of a meet was/is in a public place.*
