About Spoko Polish

Spoko Polish is a Polish language school with a difference. The project started in Krakow in 2015. At that time, we were just one teacher intent on finding new, more accessible ways to teach Polish. Soon after, we started hosting regular, free Polish conversation meetings. These were open to Polish learners at all levels. The welcoming, inclusive vibe of these meetings nurtured new friendships. So, Spoko became a community! As a result, the project became an important support network for both foreigners and Poles.

Since then, the school’s team has grown. Now, we’re a collaborative team of progressive and passionate teachers across multiple Polish cities! All the while, our team continues to develop Spoko Polish’s own program for teaching Polish. Importantly, our program is in direct adherence to CEFR language level definitions.

But we are more than just a language school! For instance, in 2020, we gained the status of a non-governmental organisation (NGO). And our free meetings continue till today! In short, we work to help foreigners find their feet in Poland through our cultural and community-oriented activities. In doing so, we help build a well-integrated, tolerant, multicultural society in Poland.

Jurek

Jurek

English, Russian
Jurek is passionate about linguistics and acquiring foreign languages. He loves learning and teaching. He graduated in robotics, hitchhiked around half the world, lived and worked in 6 countries on 3 continents before coming back to his home country to connect his passions through teaching his native language to foreigners. He can speak, understand or read about 10 languages from 5 different language families to a various extent. In teaching, inspired by robotics, he focuses on deconstructing complex concepts and feeding them to you in digestible chunks, providing the best effort-to-results ratio. He loves to help people associate words and concepts with things they're already familiar with and use other tricks that have helped him learn languages himself. He believes language is an ever-evolving, living organism we can all shape and instead of conservative correctness, we should focus on effectively delivering our thoughts. He loves how Polish allows you to be extremely playful with the language.
