About Spoko Polish

Spoko Polish started in Krakow in 2015 with one teacher, determined to find a new, more accessible way to teach their native language of Polish. At the same time, we started hosting regular, free Polish conversation meetings open to learners at all levels. The inclusive, welcoming atmosphere of these meetings nurtured social connections & community growth – and soon the project became an important support network for foreigners and Poles alike. 

Since these beginning, the teaching team has expanded into a thriving collaborative team of progressive and passionate teachers across numerous Polish cities and further abroad! Together the team continues to develop their own program for teaching Polish in direct adherence to CEFR language level definitions.

However, we continue to be more than just a language school! In 2020, the project gained the status of a non-governmental organisation (NGO).  Outside of pandemic times, our free meetings continue till today! We work to help foreigners find their feet in Poland and contribute to a well-integrated, tolerant, multicultural society in Poland through cultural activities and community-oriented projects.

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.
