Our graduates about our school

  • My name is Zuzanna Gudyka, and I am a student at the University of Gdansk. I have just started working toward my master's degree, majoring in applied linguistics, in both English and German. I have been working as an English Language Trainer at the language school Talkersi for two years. There I am also responsible for hosting regular events called Social English Night, which revolve around the English language and communication. The American School in Gdynia was the beginning of my journey with languages: very quickly I found that one of my greatest talents is language acquisition. The school helped me learn the essential base of the English language, as well as gain enormous interest in it. In fact, English classes with Ms. Basia begot something more than just interest - it was pure passion for the English language, most of all phonetics. Learning other subjects in English broadened my knowledge of specialized vocabulary, thanks to which I had no problem graudating from one of the...

  • My name is Natalia Brzozowska, and I am currently studying Genetics at the University of Glasgow in Scotland. I love pursuing my degree, and I honestly feel like I wouldn’t have been here if I had not attended the American School in Gdynia. At the school I became fluent in English in no time. Thanks to the international community, I made friends with students from all over the world and developed tolerance and interest in getting to know different cultures at a very young age. What I remember most clearly is the warm and friendly atmosphere, and the amazing teachers who approached every student individually and made sure no one fell behind. Graduating from the American School in Gdynia built my character, enabled me to get accepted into some of the best schools in the country, and opened the doors to the world for me.

  • It has been 25 years since my earliest school-related memories. I remember sitting on a colorful carpet in a small circle of pupils surrounding a teacher who spoke English only. I was then a seven-year-old girl in 1st grade trying to repeat and pronounce separate English words dictated by the instructor. I especially struggled with the article the! The American Elementary School granted me many fantastic educational experiences and has certainly shaped my academic and professional life. Its international, liberal, and creative character gave me wings to reach as high as Harvard University and then to pursue the individual path of a creative writer. This school undoubtedly inspires free thinking! Martyna Sarnowska

  • Hi! My name is Karolina Zaborowska, and I am a student at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C, where I am double majoring in Finance and Marketing. The American School in Gdynia was the beginning of my journey with the States and gave me the motivation and the incredibly important language base, to pursue my dream of studying abroad. Whenever I meet new people at school, they find it hard to believe I'm Polish because of my American accent - and I know that is all thanks to the unique emphasis on English, that focused on both grammar and spoken English, at the American School in Gdynia.
