The project:

Your main activity is to have conversations in English with Polish people. This serves two purposes. The primary purpose is to provide a comfortable setting that facilitates a natural improvement of English skills. The second purpose is to provide an opportunity for you to share about your culture and personal experiences with someone who would otherwise not have such an opportunity. The people who participate not only wish to improve their English, but they also wish to understand more about you! You may surprised how interesting and exciting your life really is! You will also have the chance to learn about the lives of many different Polish people. The basic goal is to have an enjoyable conversation in English, whatever the topic might be. In summary, this is both an English language practice and a cultural exchange opportunity. If you are looking to experience other cultures, what better way to do that than to speak directly to the people who live here?

You may occasionally be asked to help with other small projects (general maintenance). If you have a special interest in something else, just ask. We want to make this a good and full experience for you.

We have a large house in a safe and desirable area of Warsaw. It is centrally located with public transportation readily available. By bus it is about 20 minutes to Old Town Warsaw and about 3 minutes to the Wilanow district. The Willanow Palace is only two bus stops away!

The house is reserved only for helpers. My partner and I live in a separate home with our two children further away from downtown Warsaw. We have both participated in exchange programs in the US when we were younger and understand how nice it can be to have your own space. You will share the house only with other helpers, and each person gets their own private bedroom. There will be anywhere between 1-6 helpers staying there at any given time. The house is roughly 300 sq. meters, with a nice garden. We will also provide wifi. And of course, all your food will be provided, but you will be expected to prepare your own meals.
