You can call them silly and lazy if it makes you feel better about yourself, ziemowit
You, English teachers (or former English teachers) on the PF tend to assign too much importance to themselves. And obviously, yourself and that friend of yours, Jon357, always tend to be au premier plan
of it. Not without reason I mentioned in my previous post the BBC and the excellent English language learning service they provide. Times are changing and so is foreign language learning or teaching. Recently, I was truly shocked of how good the Google translate was when I submitted a text in law in Polish to it. This internet service came out with excellent and accurate translation of all legal terms and phrases, and it was surprisingly good in translating common language, so only a few minor corrections into their common English were needed to have the job done almost at once. I very seldom use the Google translate when I need to translate something into English, so the last time I did it was a rather long time ago, hence comes my astonishment at the progress they did in Google translate over the recent years!
Thus my point is: when you are board member, financial specialist, lawyer, medical doctor, or whoever else, in the long run you inevitably learn a specialized language of your profession by yourself (you are just silly and lazy if you do not). The common English language, on the other hand, you may learn quickly and efficiently with the BBC (of which I may serve as a sort of example as never in my life did I have a private tutor of English). Obviously, you may like to have someone for consultation to assist you alongside your BBC course(s) from time to time, but it's pretty damn clear to all that there is no need to hire someone who charges 125 zł an hour for that.
