We are more than just another language school.  | We use the newest and the most effective approaches to teaching and learning from the USA.


Hi! My name is Dana Guest. I’m the founder of The American Academy. I’m a Polish/American native speaker. I was born in Poland, but as a teenager, I moved to Canada, and then to the United States. I lived in the USA for almost 30 years, and have left a piece of my heart there forever. Even though I am a citizen of three countries: USA, Poland, and Canada, my DNA results have shown that I am: 40% Balkan, 30% Baltka, 22% Scandinavian, and 8% Eastern European. I am also a certified teacher in the State of Oregon, the State of Georgia, and the State of Washinton. I have always been passionate about my work, and I think that this commitment to teaching and learning has contributed to my being nominated for the prestigious Teacher of the Year award in the United States. Overall, I have 25+ years of cross-cultural and international experience in the areas of educational leadership, strategic planning, and business development gained through living and working in the USA, Canada, South East Asia, and Poland. My decision to move back to Poland came as a surprise even to myself. On my way back from India to the United States in 2019, I stopped in Gdańsk for a couple of days. Taken by its vibrant culture, rich history, and attractive modernity, I decided to make it my home. And I never looked back. A few months later, drawing upon my international experience in the field of education and business development, I opened up The American Academy, a language school where learning actually happens. It is a great privilege and honor for me to share my knowledge and experiences with such a wonderful group of men and women.  I especially cherish the special friendships and the special bonds we’ve developed throughout our journey of learning English. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to get to know you and trusting me with your learning needs.    Read more.

TESTIMONIALS:

I’ve met the best teacher ever. Dana awoke my willingness to work and made my English skills better and better.

The preparation of the presentation was really cool, demanding.

Dominika W

Fajna atmosfera, Twoja osobowość wpływa na rozluźnienie i zwiększenie przyswajalności nauki, mniej stresu i wstydu przed mówieniem. Dużo dygresji i historyjek czy też potocznego języka urozmaica zajęcia i wpływa na szybsze zapamiętywanie.

OUR EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY

We believe in learning by doing, an educational concept supported by two American
educational theorists: John Dewey and David Kolb.

Our innovative and modern approaches aim to embed learning within real-world contexts, including work-integrated learning, problem-based learning, project-based learning, and inquiry-based learning.

Holistic approach

Emphasis is placed on the whole growth of a learner instead of emphasizing only specific parts of the human experience. It aims to develop a person’s intellectual, emotional, social, physical, artistic, and spiritual potentials.
It is the opposite of rote memorization.

Personalized approach

Aims to customize learning for each student’s strengths, needs, skills, and interests.

Collaborative approach

It is a student-centered approach, involving joint intellectual efforts by students
together to mutually search for understanding, solutions, or meanings.

Experiential approach

Focuses on learners reflecting on their experiences of doing something, so as to gain
conceptual insight as well as practical expertise. It includes active
experimentation, concrete experience, reflective observation, and abstract conceptualization

Authentic approach

It allows learners to explore, discuss, and meaningfully construct concepts and
relationships in contexts that involve real-world problems and projects that
are relevant to the learner.
