I am a linguist interested in discovering the image of the world hidden behind the words. The linguistic worldview shows the differences between languages. Words and ideas reflect the common memory of each particular society that perceives reality through its historical and cultural experience, habits, beliefs mirrored by the language. Each language contains its view of the world and it is fascinating to discover the differences in the meaning of words and contexts they are used. Apart from doing research, I run a Polish language school for foreigners – Academia Polonica. The results of my investigation in cultural linguistics are implemented in the programs for teaching Polish to foreigners in broad cultural contexts. I believe that a deeper view of Polish culture through history, customs, symbols will help to cross the cultural barriers and improve communication behind diversity. Became a friend of Poland!
