    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    A language school in one of the most picturesque regions of Poland – close to Zakopane, Beskidy Mountains – is looking for an English native speaker for participating in our events for children (ages 7-14) or/and older students. With our 8-years experience of teaching, we are eager to improve and to make the process of learning English more interesting for kids.

    Though the town is not quite big, it is very nice and vivid with lots of greenery. It is a good place to get acquainted with Polish folk culture and hospitality!

    Almost every weekend we go out somewhere to visit places - you'd be required just to pay the entrance fee/ travel and food will be provided.

    It is a brilliant opportunity to learn more about Polish culture! Our team are open-minded and sincere people. If you want to have an exciting and memorable experience - we are waiting for you!

  • Help


    We are searching for an English native speaker to help our local teachers and ready to help in one of the activities on choice:

    1) Participating in classes with children - Among general tasks – conversation and guessing games, playing games, participating in competitions and conversations, as well as helping our group leaders. All materials and ideas can be provided

    2) Running conversation classes with teenagers and adults - the main aim of a volunteer is to make people more confident in a conversation with a native speaker, to share with them information about culture and habits of a volunteer’s country.

    Having a driving licence would be really helpful but not essential.

    Qualifications or experience would be a great asset, yet they are not required just optimism and eagerness to help:)
