Joanna Łucka

FB_IMG_1488560121701I teach how I would like to be taught. After many experiments and years of teaching, I have found my own style as I figured out how to do it in an interesting and engaging way. I prepare my own teaching lesson plans based solely on authentic resources because I am deeply convinced that they are conducive to language learning. Lessons based on authentic resources confront my students with real language used in real life outside the classroom and give them a great sense of achievement. In my classes language is not a goal in itself but a tool to learn about the world and that is how I prepare lesson plans which you can find on our website. I choose engaging and relevant topics which make difference and help my students discover new things.

I find my work extremely rewarding and I want to share my approach as well as my teaching resources with other fellow teachers.
