Hi, I’m Steve and Welcome to PELC

I’m a man on a mission. With fourteen years’ experience as an English language instructor behind me, I offer cutting edge online courses to students, while those living in Gdańsk can now benefit from having face-to-face classes with me.

Of course, materials matter! Over the years, I have written nearly 100 texts. Many of them are based on my own experiences living, travelling and working abroad. You don’t have to worry – you will be able to relate to my experiences, and I will leave all the talking to you.

PELC stands for “Personalised English Language Courses”. This is because I will work with you – the student – to make language, words, phrases and collocations personal to you. If you personalise phrases and collocations so they are from your experience, then you will be well-prepared for all future conversations. I will show you how to record new language items with the aid of the PELC Word-Phrase Table.

“I realised very early that teaching was my destination in life…”

I started teaching in Poland on a hot and sunny day in August, 2006. I set out on a remarkable professional journey and I’ve never looked back…

CUTTING-EDGE TEACHING METHODS!

The PELC Word-Phrase Table – Why Personalising Phrases and Collocations works

The Benefits of using a word table:

  • Record collocations after a dash (-)
  • Write true personalised sentences about personal attitudes, experiences and familiar situations after a star (*)
  • Easy to access and develop a repetition schedule
  • The possibility to use different colours, fonts and letter sizes to enhance visual memory skills which, in turn, increases the probability of recalling key collocations, grammatical information and personalised sentences
  • Enlist a native speaker to make sound recordings of personalised sentences

  • High-quality sound recordings provided for EVERY text

Ah, organic food 

It’s common knowledge that fruit and vegetables sold in supermarkets are ridden with pesticides, so I was delighted to have recently found wild blackberries close to my workplace. There must be fifty thousand blackberries waiting to be picked. Picking them means that I can save money as I don’t have to buy fruit in a store. The therapeutic effects of walking in a forest and picking fruit are also extremely rewarding

Organic farming is extremely labour-intensive so, based on the low prices of organic products in supermarkets, it’s difficult to believe that farmers can earn a decent living from the produce they sell to stores. With so many cheap organic products on supermarket shelves, I do ask myself whether the big chains are lying about which products truly are organic, in order to generate as much profit as they can.
