“You can never understand one language
until you understand at least two.” – Geoffrey Willans
Languages have been my passion since I remember. At the age of 8, I learnt a whole section of words starting with the letter “A” in a German-Polish dictionary, just because I found it fun. And guess how much of if I still remember.
My early exposure to foreign languages led me to choose English and Russian philology as my study targets, and eventually becoming a language teacher and translator. Currently, I’m working on becoming fluent in Spanish and my ultimate goal is to become fluent in, at least, 6 languages.
I’m here to show you how I learn, what memorizing practices work best for me, how to overcome language barriers and fears of speaking foreign languages, and much more!

My work revolves around social media. As a content creator, I stay up to date with the latest trends, observe how rapidly they change, and which direction they are taking.
One of the things I have noticed is that the border between reality and social media is becoming thinner and thinner. Not only do we spend more time scrolling through social media, but also the way we consume it changes.
There are ever-increasing ways to share your content or interact with your audience, and your personal brand matters more than ever – especially for somebody like me who interacts with clients, and gets in touch with new ones, solely online.
It’s all fascinating and scary at the same time. Here, on my website, I’m taking a closer look on how we interact with each other, and how we can improve our online communication.
“The most important thing in communication is hearing what isn’t said.” – Peter F. Drucker
Even though we communicate more and more through all available online means, nothing can replace face-to-face interaction where not only words matter, but also your tone of voice, gestures, eye contact, and plenty of other non-verbal signals.
Some experts even believe that our face-to-face interactions are based on just 20% verbal communication and 80% body language. While I don’t necessarily fully agree with these numbers (there hasn’t been enough research on the topic), I believe that reading non-verbal signs is an important skill.
I’m interested in exploring how we interact with each other, what makes a person create good or bad first impressions, and how to communicate better. These are just a few topics you are going to find on my website.
