Being a Bilingual Educator

Bilingual education involves teaching academic content in two languages, in a native and secondary language with varying amounts of each language used in accordance with the program model.

I have been teaching Polish as a foreign language and English, since 1976.
I also give lectures in English on Polish History and Culture for students from all over the world.

I am extremely interested in Cultural Diversity, as well.

According to Stephen Krashen Prof. Emeritus;

Bilingual educators need to do a better job of communicating with the public.




In my view, the freedom of being a bilingual educator gives me a perfect opportunity to communicate more efficiently with the public.
I don’t understand why people complain about communicational skills of bilingual teachers.
Effective communication skills the ability to: speak appropriately with a wide variety of students while maintaining good eye contact, demonstrate a varied vocabulary and tailor your language to your audience, listen effectively, present your ideas appropriately, write clearly and in brief and work well in a group all require excellent communication skills.
