Welcome to our website

Foreign languages fill the world with colours, new challenges and opportunities. This is our world!

We have been enchanted by this linguistic magic for a long time and now we would like you to have a piece of it. The door to the world of languages is wide open and it is right in front of you.

For us a language is much more than just grammar and vocabulary. We believe you need to understand the culture of the linguistic region to fully decode the words, sentences and dialogues. It is our natural curiosity and desire to communicate that drives us to learn a foreign language.

We have been teaching since 2000 and have taught hundreds of classes in Universities, schools, companies, private houses and on the internet. The latter gave rise to Speaking Parrot.

Speaking Parrot is a service that provides on-line language learning. Nowadays time has become more and more precious, therefore, we offer professional classes via Skype. On-line classes are highly effective, time- and money-saving and are super convenient as they allow us to learn at our own place.

We offer three languages: Polish, Portuguese and English.

Try us and we promise interesting classes, a friendly atmosphere, a full involvement and the most important: a quick progress!

And yes, we do agree with the theory that our linguistic success depends in a huge part on your teacher(s). They must be patient, imaginative but above all, they must be passionate about their work. And this is precisely the reason we teach!
