Daniel was born in America but grew up in Wrocław (his Father is an American and his Mother is Polish). He completed his high-school education in Germany at a private American boarding school. He loves to teach and took several public speaking courses in college. He has a bachelor’s degree in International Business and a master’s degree in International Law. He enjoys hiking and listening to music and he loves both Polish and American culture, life-style and food, but is also knowledgeable about Asian culture and cuisine.
Agnieszka has been teaching at the language school since 2006 but was involved with the school in the early 1990s, helping, among other things, to organize language camps. She has translated several books and has taught English in primary and secondary schools and in higher education. She loves trips to the mountains, Spanish-American culture and home-grown tomatoes :).
I've been a teacher at Wroclaw Language School for over 15 years now. I also taught English in a secondary school. I love my job and really enjoy working with people. My greatest satisfaction is seeing my students improve. I’m married to a bass player 🙂 and I have a son. I love watching films, so I can talk about cinema for hours. Travelling and visiting new places is another hobby of mine. In my free time I meet friends, hike or play Minecraft 😉
My name is Elaine and I come from the south east part of England. I taught at the language school from 1990 to 2004, when I started teaching in the English Institute of the University of Wrocław. I still work at the University, but I teach part time at the school too. I enjoy playing the guitar and singing, baking cakes (and eating them) and spending time with my family and friends.
I was born in 1998 in Watford (in England, 30 mins north of London), but I’ve lived my entire life in Wrocław. I am a MA student at the University of Wrocław in the department of English, where I’m learning to be a teacher. Teaching English as a foreign language is one of my passions and I’m very interested and engaged in this topic. My other hobbies are music (I enjoy singing and playing piano and guitar), sport (football is my favourite, but I know a bit about most popular sports) and video games.
My name is Sylwia and I'm one of the teachers at WSJ. I have been involved in the school since 1999 when I started to attend some Friday activities. I have travelled to other European countries and learned about Irish and British culture. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends as well as hiking in the mountains and playing the tin whistle.
I am married with three children. I have been teaching English for a number of years. I joined the language school staff in 2005. I have a lot of experience in working with children. In my free time, I enjoy reading, walking and trips to the mountains.
Patrick is from the United States and has taught English at multiple levels since 1974 in the USA, Japan, and Poland. He has been with the language school since 2004 and Director of Studies since 2007. When he and his wife Cindy have free time, they enjoy traveling, watching movies, American football, reading and studying the Bible with friends.
Marek has been involved in the work of the school since 1989. Initially, he was a student and he co-organised summer language camps. In 1994 he began teaching English at the school and in 1997 he took over from Ruth Kowalczuk as school director. Marek is married to Elaine, who is also an English teacher. They have two grown-up sons: David and Robert. In 2006 Marek stood down as director in order to concentrate on teaching. Since 2008 he has fulfilled the role of acting director whilst continuing to teach. His hobbies include music, art and travelling.
