I’m Milena and I’m learning how to learn
I’ve grown up in a typical Polish 2+2 family. My parents put a strong emphasis on my and my sister’s education. I had always been a diligent student: the one that does homework right after coming back home and the one that the rest of the class sends to the teachers office each time everybody wants to ask for postponing the test.
My favorite subjects at school have always been foreign languages: English and German. This passion towards fo reign languages ultimately led me to studying English and Russian philology at university and officially becoming a language teacher.
This is, however, when things changed. I started noticing more and more flaws in our current education system. We don’t really learn things that prepare us to face rapidly and constantly changing challenges of the modern world. Instead, we focus on dully memorizing the periodic table of elements or start history lessons at each stage of education from Greek mythology.
I decided to take things into my own hands and learn things I need and want on my own. My current goal is to become fluent in Spanish and thus I’m exploring what methods of learning this foreign language work best for me.
Among my other interests are such topics as: healthy routine, sticking to your habits, time management, clear communication, and modern technology. I’m more than happy to share my knowledge and experience with you!
Get engaged & feel fabulous!
