NATIVE ENGLISH
is a small and friendly language school.

We teach our learners 
the kind of English

as it is spoken by native speakers.

Native English is a school which puts great effort into treating learners as individuals. The school was set up in 2002 and for 12 years has been the only school in Poznań employing qualified and experienced native speaker teachers. Our teachers also have many years’ teaching experience, making Native English  unique among Poznań’s language schools.

The ethos of the school is to teach our learners the kind of English as it is spoken by native speakers by giving them the opportunity to use English in real-life contact with native speakers.

Native English teachers try to prepare lessons that are methodogically-principled, interesting  and fun.

Qualified and experienced native speakers teach all levels from Elementary (A1) up to Proficiency (C2). We also specialise in preparing candidates for Cambridge English examinations and every year we help our students achieve good marks.

Many of our teachers also work as speaking examiners
for Cambridge English (KET, PET, FCE, CAE, CPE, BEC, YLE).

Not only do students at Native English have contact with natural English
during their lessons, they also have opportunities to their English outside class,
at social evenings and through our blog.

Top Gear

Top Gear driven from Argentina after Jeremy Clarkson number plate row

Cast and crew had to abandon cars at roadside after being pelted with stones due to row over ‘Falklands’ number plate

Top Gear is one of those successful British media exports, watched by millions of viewers around the world, including Poland. Over the years I’ve had quite a few students who enjoy watching Jeremy Clarkson and his mates’ particular brand of humour.  have been involved in some more trouble.

Here’s a link from the Guardian: http://www.theguardian.com/media/2014/oct/03/top-gear-argentina-jeremy-clarkson-bbc

The cast and crew of TV’s Top Gear have had to flee Argentina after they were pelted with stones by a crowd incensed that one of their vehicles had a number plate that appeared to refer to the Falklands conflict.

The crew, including presenters Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond were filming in Patagonia, southern Argentina, as part of a programme featuring a remote highway passing through Chile and Argentina.

Damaged Top Gear car in Argentina with Falklands number plates

May and Hammond were driving an old Lotus Esprit and a Mustang, but it was the A Porsche 928, with the number plate H982 FKL, driven by Clarkson, that caused controversy, after it was suggested that the plate referred to the war of 1982.

The BBC has denied any intended reference, saying the car was bought by a member of the production team and its plate was entirely coincidental.

Clarkson said the attack was “the most terrifying thing I’ve ever been involved in”, the Press Association reported. This was not a jolly jape that went awry. For once, we did nothing wrong.

So was it just an innocent mistake, having that registration plate, and that the Argentinians are being oversensitive? The common opinion is that ‘you can’t say anything these days without somebody getting offended’ and Clarkson’s .
Or is it just another example of their ‘politically incorrect humour’? You might remember these cases…..
