My name is Joanna Michalak-Gray, and I have been a language tutor for over 30 years. I taught English in my native Poland for ten years before moving to the UK where I started to teach Polish in 1990. My students range from 16 to 80 years old and come from all walks of life. I co-authored Complete Polish and authored Get Started in Polish (initially published as Beginner’s Polish), Speak Polish with Confidence and the Polish Tutor: Grammar and Vocabulary Workbook. I strongly believe that anybody who is able to use their native language can learn a foreign language.
