Hi, I don't know how successful this will be but I'm looking for freelance foreign language teachers in the Raciborz/Odpole area of Silesia.

I'm a translator based in Manchester and my sister is an English language teacher living in Raciborz, Poland (apologies if any names are incorrectly spelt, I translate from Russian). She's trying to increase her number of students and was considering collaboration with some other teachers. It's just occurred to me that there might be someone out there on Proz in the same position.

She initially worked for a language school but has now also started to go it alone. If anyone is interested or has good advice, please email me so I can let her know.

Kind regards,

Elizabeth Sumner

I would but for my lack of Polish (beyond ordering a beer, etc).

Regards,

Thanks for that, I've submitted it to the Polish forum. I wasn't sure whether it was etiquette to post on a non-English language forum in English. Especially considering much of the Anglophone world's refusal to believe that people speak other languages! Obviously not people on Proz but I've been embarrassed enough by Brits abroad who think shouting in English will get you everywhere.

A bit of trivia - I've heard this is true.

Apparently her Maj, Elizabeth II, speaks very good French but protocol says she must never be heard to speak much more than 'hello' in public in another language.

Regards,

Elizabeth Sumner
