Krzysztof Kowalski, Conrad PSJO founder

Krzysztof Kowalski


Having completed Economics at the University of Gdańsk I worked in the Warmia and Mazury Regional Board of NSZZ ‘Solidarność’ in Olsztyn. When martial law was abolished I started studying English Philology at the Catholic University of Lublin. I spent a year working in Holland, France and the UK. After returning to Poland I completed my English Philology (for Teachers) studies at Adam Mickiewicz University (Poznań) in 1990.

In 1995 I continued my English studies at Oxford House College in London. I completed postgraduate studies in legal and judicial translation and interpreting at the University of Warsaw in 2010.


I set up ‘Conrad’ School of Languages on 1 st August 1990. Between 1990 and 2007 foreigners: Brits, Americans, Canadians and a Ukrainian worked alongside Poles, who taught English, German, French, Italian, Spanish and Russian. The names of Anna K, Joanna P, Dominika L, Louise P, Frances J, Magdalena N, Kathryn H, Robert L. and Paul. N. remain most firmly imprinted in my memory.
We prepared well over 2,650 students for their maturity exams, for international exams, job interviews and for their work and studies in Poland and abroad. We organized summer language camps in the Tatra Mountains.


I have been working as a freelancer since 2009. I teach General English, Business English and Polish for Foreigners. I have accumulated considerable experience in teaching Polish to foreigners as I have been doing it for over 20 years. I continue preparing students for their exams and/ or job interviews.
I work on Skype. I work individually or as a sub-contractor of larger projects. I translate.
You can find me at my office at Jarocka 32 in Olsztyn (see: Contact us)

I studied English and German at the University of Warsaw Institute of Applied Linguistics. I live in Gdynia. As a UW student I taught English at my parents’ Conrad PSJO school. I also taught English in Warsaw (Business English) and in Gdynia (state examinations preparatory courses and Maritime English). I have been to Britain several times. A few of my British friends used to teach at Conrad school.

I do quite a lot of translation work. I have been translating for the Faculty of Human Nutrition of Warsaw University of Life Sciences for several years. I also translate Internet website pages. I am a sworn translator.

I learned English and German at Conrad School between 2004 and 2010. Fairly quickly, in 2005 I became the winner of Warmia and Mazuria Voivodeship competition “With English into the Wonderland”. I won three consecutive editions of Warmia and Mazury Schools Superintendent English Competition in the years 2006 - 2008. In 2010 I became Laureate of the all-Poland English Language Olympiad and I received grade A in the Proficiency in English exam. My skills enable me to study in English speaking countries.

In the years 2006 - 2008 I was also Laureate of Warmia and Mazury Schools Superintendent German Competition, and in 2008 I took third place in an all-Poland German Competition organised by PWN Publishing House. In 2010 I obtained the German Language Certificate DSD. I can study in German-speaking countries.

What counts at Conrad School is work. Demanding, diligent teachers, clear objectives and a casual atmosphere attract many very special people. Conversation classes are especially good.
