Partner with a love of language
Foregate Street Partner Marcin Kowalewicz, learning a new language started as a necessity but ended up as a rewarding career.
Arriving from Poland in 2007, Marcin spoke only limited English. “I decided that I needed some proper lessons in order to learn English efficiently, so I started to learn the language at West Cheshire College in 2008”, he recalls. “I was surprised how enjoyable it was “.
In 2011 Marcin was awarded the Cambridge English Certificate ofProficiency in English – the organisation’s most advance qualification.
While most would have left their language training there, for Marcin this was only the beginning. He decided to enrol in an English teaching course and after qualifying last year started teaching on a voluntary basis in Birkenhead.
