Łukasz Chwistek – instructor of Russian and Polish languages
I am a philologist with a capital letter – I look at life as a true philologist does. My work is my passion!
I graduated from the Brest State A. Pushkin University in Belarus. Have I ever thought about choosing my future profession? Never! Already by the age of 7 I knew that my vocation was to teach.
Since I am a native speaker of Russian and Polish languages, as well as a representative of these two very close, but at the same time different cultures, in my classes I always tell students what unites and what distinguishes Western and Eastern Slavs.
I am a real volcano of energy. I love channeling this energy to my students during Russian or Polish language lessons. My students are very different: Russians, Poles, Estonians, Ukrainians, Belarusians, Americans, Chinese – people of all ages.
I gained my first experience while studying at the university: I started working in one of the largest Polish language schools in Belarus. I taught the language, culture and literature of Poland to university applicants. I also taught the colloquial language to adults. At the same time, I taught Russian as a foreign language to university students. Since 2014, I started teaching the Russian and Belarusian languages at the University of Warsaw at the Faculty of Applied Linguistics, and the Polish language in many language schools and private universities in Warsaw. I also have firsthand experience in teaching Russian and Polish languages via Skype.
My main professional goal is to develop a language skill in my students. There are as many different teaching methods as there are students in a study group. During my lessons there is always a complete immersion in the lexical and grammar material that is being studied – students are never bored.
In my free time I work on my doctoral dissertation, study foreign languages, read books, watch TV shows, ride a bicycle.
“I have enjoyed learning from you! You are an outstanding teacher and I will miss working with you each week. I wish you the best of luck in all your future endeavors and hope that you continue to enjoy what you do! Thank you for all of your patience and motivation.”
