A NEW METHOD OF LANGUAGE EDUCATION

The Polish language teaching in our school is grounded in an innovative method, formulated by Mrs. Małgorzata Świstowska, a linguist, speech and language therapist and postgraduate of the Pedagogical University of Cracow.

The Innovative Method of Effective Polish Language Education is based on polysensory, interactive techniques which are used for developing correct pronounciation. This is the starting point for every language skill: listening, speaking, reading and writing. Correct pronunciation is very important, especially when it comes to the Polish language, which is one of the seven most difficult languages in the world. Besides being an author of the innovative method, Mrs. Świstowska formulated a program for quick and effective Polish language learning, including multimedia programs and personally devised educational materials making the process of learning shorter.
