I met Magdalena Stróżyk on an intensive German course in my former company. Magda had fairly tough task of transforming us - a group of software engineers with only elementary German knowledge - into people able to communicate with German only speaking customers in just few months. Magda not only succeeded in that task, but also managed to keep the classes interesting, exciting and fun - which was rather unique experience. Thanks to her engagement and real passion, we stayed focused and attended the course with big pleasure.
When I changed my company and we wanted to arrange German classes, Magda was the first teacher we called. It won't be therefore a surprise that I highly recommended Magda as a fully professional, first-class German teacher.

Die Qualität der internen Kommunikation unter den Mitarbeiter ist für die Südzucker Polska S.A. eines von mehreren Elementen, um einen langfristigen Unternehmenserfolg zu sichern. Eine gemeinsame Sprache – Polnisch – ist hierfür Voraussetzung. Darüber hinaus unterstützt das aktive Sprechen der Sprache den persönlichen Kontakt mit den Einheimischen und setzt neue Impulse.
Für das Erlernen der polnischen Sprache fand ich eine sehr kompetente Lehrerin – Frau Magdalena Stróżyk. Sie brachte Professionalität, Kreativität, aber auch ein entsprechendes Maß an Loyalität und Flexibilität in den mehrjährigen individuellen Sprachkurs ein. Nicht selten wurden die sprachlichen Nuancen genau „auseinander genommen“, der Unterricht war dennoch stets locker. Ihrer konsequente Art war u.a. ein Garant für mein heutiges gutes polnisches Sprachniveau. Bardzo za to Pani Stróżyk dziękuję.

Magdalena Strozyk was my Polish instructor for about two years. As an English speaking American, I spoke no Polish words before our weekly lessons, but I was able to quickly begin speaking basic Polish words after just a few sessions. After my two years of Polish lessons with Magdalena, I was able to hold ongoing conversations, read and write in Polish comfortably.
Magdalena is an exceptionally talented language instructor, has a unique ability to motivate her students to study and learn another language. I am very fortunate and grateful to have taken Polish lessons by such a dedicated language instructor, Magdalena Strozyk.

I would like to strongly recommend Mrs Magdalena Stróżyk as a German tutor with great language, organizational and motivating skills.
Mrs Magdalena Stróżyk was my German tutor from October 2011 till July 2012. She was leading German course for a group of about 10 employees of my former corporation. I was a member of that group. The course was planned for 1 year and had two aims: improving attendees' verbal skills used in everyday project work and preparing them to pass German Certificate C1 issued by Goethe Institute. Having taken part in that high quality course I have passed the aforementioned exam achieving grade 'good'.
Mrs Stróżyk is a well organized and aim oriented person. She started the course with a presentation of the lessons' plan for the whole year and then, having gathered expectations and feedback from the group, tailored it accordingly. Throughout the course she constantly emphasised elements useful both in our everyday project work and the ones needed to achieve good results in the exam. Within given time constraints, she managed to prioritize the topics so that the group could be taught skills essential to pass the exam. She was always punctual and well prepared for the lesson whereas the subjects were presented in an interesting form. Finally Mrs Stróżyk is a very passionate and energetic person. She uses those skills to involve the group in lesson and motivate it to work hard and be active.
Having taken part in numerous foreign language courses (English, German, French) both in state and in private schools, I find Mrs Stróżyk one of the best tutors. I can recommend her to everyone who values one's time and want to invest it in learning German in an efficient and interesting way.

Magdalena prepared me to the C1 German certification exam. She has excellent teaching skills and knows modern teaching methods which allowed me to make significant progress in learning of this language. It showed during contacts with German customers where I was able to express my thoughts more easily. I would be happy to work with Magdalena again and I would recommend her to anyone wanting to improve their knowledge of the German language.

Magdalena is a very capable and professional Polish teacher who prepares her lessons carefully and with the utmost interest. She is always on time and comes ready to each class. Magdalena has quite a lot of resources and can adapt her lessons to different age groups and levels of knowledge. All in all, Magdalena is a very efficient Polish teacher.

Krzysztof Korzonkowski
Knowledge Manager

I'm happy to have the possibility to recommend Magda as the language teacher.
As former student of Magda I appreciate specially her ability in clearly explaining even the most complex grammar structures.
Lessons with Magda were very effective due to her approach to students. She had individual approach to every specific situation and challenges faced by students.
Due to very good atmosphere and clear communication we had the opportunity to train and test our vocabulary and grammar knowledge, to see our progress, improve our pronunciation, syntax and test our language knowledge in realistic dialogues, with original texts. Another advantage was ability to learn about culture, customs and ways of communication.

Kamil Goliński
Software Engineer

I can honestly recommend Magda. First of all I wouldn't be able to pass certification exam Goethe-Zertifikat C1 without Magdalena's help. I could meet Magda as excellent teacher of German. Magda helped me to structure my knowledge of German. Summing up: in order for your German language course to be a success, you absolutely have to participate in a group where Magda is the teacher!

I had a pleasure to be taught by Magda for three months during an intensive German course. Due to her creativity along with language proficiency I could have reactivated my German language skills and join the international development team smoothly. Magda's engagement in preparation the challenging tasks for us combined with a huge sense of humor and very positive attitude made this time unforgettable :-) Highly recommended!

Director of Schools in Jelcz-Laskowice, participant in POKL project

In 2013 I took part in an English-language course organised by the company ProContact, as an EU project.
The lesson times were arranged by consultation with the course participants. This was important as the majority of the group had professional commitments, and we met twice a week.
The training was provided by Karolina Jągowska, who was excellently prepared for every lesson. To supplement the textbook, Karolina incorporated additional teaching materials she had prepared herself. Her kindness and her approach encouraged all of us to work intensively, and this bore fruit in the form of our good results in the final exams.

Jadwiga Frąckowiak
Participant in POKL project

Karolina Jągowska is an excellent teacher in the English-language lessons she conducts. She is highly effective in conveying the content of the material to the students. Her classes are very interesting, and encourage her students to participate fully in the lessons.

Marta Bąk
Participant in POKL project

Magdalena Stróżyk, with the company ProContact, conducted a training course as part of the project called “Community of Jelcz-Laskowice: We want to learn languages” from March to June 2013. The training I participated in fulfilled my needs for learning English. The training was responsibly organised from start to finish, in the way it was originally planned and running to time. I must emphasise that the lessons conducted by Tomasz Budkowski were very well suited to the level and knowledge of every participant. The lessons were characterised by the appropriate level of preparation and involvement of the teacher. I am grateful to Magdalena Stróżyk's company ProContact for organising this training in my town and look forward to future cooperation.

Aleksandra Nowak
Participant in POKL project

My lessons were conducted by Tomasz Budkowski and were very interesting, and through them I learned a great deal of interesting information about the English language. The lesson times were well suited to the students, so we had no problems at all in attending them. Class topics focussed both on grammar and on vocabulary. A great deal of emphasis was placed on speaking, thanks to which our ability to speak in English improved. The lessons were full of variety and tailored to the needs of everyone.

Wojciech Ostrowski
Participant in POKL project

Karolina Jągowska is a wonderful teacher, and in those few months I made incredible progress. It is a far better and more enjoyable method of learning than in any other language school in my district.

Anna Serafin-Gołębiowska
Participant in POKL project

From March to June 2013 I took part in an English-language training course run by Magdalena Stróżyk's company ProContact as part of the project called “Community of Jelcz-Laskowice: We want to learn languages”, POKL.09.05.00-02-244/12, Priority IX, Development of education and competencies in regions, 9.5. Bottom-up education initiative in rural areas in Jelcz-Laskowice.
The training took place in the Secondary-School Complex in Jelcz-Laskowice. The course was very well organised, the participants were streamed according to their language abilities, and the lecture room was well equipped with multimedia board, camera and laptop. The participants received textbooks, exercises, dictionaries and other learning aids. My group was led by Karolina Jągowska, a passionate teacher who was extremely well prepared both in terms of course content and methodology. The lessons made good use of the teaching aids available in the room. Our teacher also had prepared her own teaching aids, such as flashcards, pictures and photographs which we described, and scripts for various situations in which we could practice responding in English. Different teaching methods were used throughout and she was always well prepared for the lessons, which had an atmosphere of hard work, kindness and deep interest in the topic, with the result that we performed well in the final test.

I am satisfied with the way I completed the English-language training, and for this reason I recommend courses with ProContact to anyone interested in learning English.

Stanisław Wiewiór
Participant in POKL project

I took part in an English-language course at A1 level. The course was run from March to June 2013, and the teacher was Karolina Jągowska. The way the lessons were run, the contact with the teacher and, above all, the way the topics were communicated was, in my opinion, clear and easy to understand. The advice regarding the additional teaching materials that Karolina gave us was also very valuable. She is, in my opinion, of the highest rank in her profession. The organisation of the lessons, i.e. the days and hours, were also well suited to me. KEEP IT UP!
I am pleased that I took part in this language-training course.
