I started to learn English at school and continued to explore and improve my knowledge of English at university where I received the bachelor’s degree in English Philology. After graduating from the university, I was offered a great opportunity to apply my theoretical background in practice. I began my teaching career in the international community of the private school. While working there, I had a chance to fully immerse into the native speakers’ environment which made an impact on my perception of the English language and its culture. In addition to this, international teaching experience acquainted me with a completely new vision and methodology of teaching. Inquiry-based learning, supported by the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme, opened a non-traditional and innovative view of teaching/learning the language in a multi-lingual classroom. The power of trans-languaging helped support the academic needs of the learners in a meaningful way as well as find a personal connection with each student. Furthermore, benefits of professional development opportunities allowed to take part in various international workshops and learning projects which enriched and strengthened my qualification as a language teacher.
