What do the teachers of KLUB DIALOGU School say about online learning?
Magda, teacher for 6 years:
‘At first I thought the screen would limit my expression. After all, it is known how important a role non-verbal communication plays in the process of learning Polish as a foreign language. In retrospect, however, I can admit that online work is fully effective and pleasant. Widely available instant messaging and a large number of different applications, specially designed for the education sector, facilitate the transfer of knowledge and are attractive to students. Sometimes it is more fun to play an internet quiz than to fill time with grammar exercises. Regardless of age, the principle of learning through play still applies. Of course, as always, one should exercise moderation and adapt the rhythm of classes to the diverse preferences of students.’
Agata, teacher and school methodologist:
‘Students who have never had contact with this form of learning Polish as a foreign language quickly “get used to” it. I also think that in order to learn the Polish language well, it is very important to maintain continuity of learning, which is why online lessons are a convenient tool for those who travel a lot or often stay “after hours” at work. Of course, this is an invaluable form of learning for those who live abroad, and contact with the Polish language is still very important for them!’
