Lecturer - Russian
Nationality: French, Polish
Master Degree in Applied Linguistics and Eastern Slavic Philology, Warsaw University
Always having had a strong interest for foreign languages and foreign cultures, I studied and graduated at Warsaw University in 2003 where I obtained a Master Degree in Applied Linguistics and Eastern Slavic Philology I pursued my studies further in a PhD program. During these years, I did research on linguistic aspects of Russian slang, as well as on the different methods of teaching it. Having worked in a number of universities and private language schools, I have been teaching Russian, Translation, Interpreting and English language. My experience also encompasses work in Poland’s most prominent business/entrepreneurship school, with an emphasis on business vocabulary. Aside from my teaching experience, I particularly enjoy consecutive/conference interpreting and have worked for several international industrial and economic forums, including Poland and Switzerland, as a translator and interpreter. Being a native Russian speaker, I also speak four other languages (English, French, German and Polish). I believe that language teaching has to be closely associated to the culture, history and literature of the country of origin. These elements constitute the necessary basis of the motivation and enthusiasm for an efficient language learning process. Being fascinated by Russian culture and literature, I have always tried to pass this interest over to my students.
