  • Description


    Hi, my name is Karolina and I live in Gdynia in the north of Poland. As an avid traveller I have visited over 20 countries in the last 3 years, often using an app where I have a verified account. As a language school owner I have been hosting students from all over the world for ten years by now by organising cross-cultural internships in cooperation with AIESEC. My school itself has been in business for almost twenty years. In summer I organise day camps where you can share your culture to Polish children, who are very ethusiastic and eager to learn; I know what I'm talking about as they are my students:).
    Currently I'm not looking for workers as my next camps will be next year in Dubai, England, Turkey and Malta(So in summer I will need teachers:). But if you wanna help me with advertising, looking for clients to my international online shop with health and beauty products, you are more than welcome.
    All the time I'm looking for Japanese teachers to meet us as my daughters are learning that language.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The work with children and teenagers is very rewarding itself. You could make new friends with them and their families, learn how to conduct lessons, develop your organizational and leadership skills, take part in trips and attractions like scientific centre, laser games or cooking local desserts. The experience you gain can be a precious asset in your CV. Thanks to the summer workshops I made friends all over the world too.
