Welcome, everybody!

Hello! Welcome to my blog devoted to English language and culture. I’m Ania, I’m Polish and I study English teaching.

Why blog? I always wanted to write my own blog about my passion which is English language. It is a kind of my personal diary where I place my ideas, thoughts, notes and observations; everything I learnt or found in books or on the Internet and may be useful, interesting and helpful. Here I can order and write down my ideas; you can take advantage of my knowledge and work. There’s nothing like sharing passion so please feel free to read posts, use materials, comment and ask questions. I’m also a learner therefore if you find some mistakes, please be understanding and inform me of it – you live and learn 🙂

“You’re Polish. Why do you write in English?”. I was pondering whether I should write in Polish or English. I know that it would be easier for Polish learners of English; however, they (especially beginners) should be exposed to the target language in order to derive as much knowledge as they can. What is more, not only Polish but also learners form other countries can gain their skills using materials in English. Let’s share our knowledge!

Today we are going to deal with one of the most common problems for especially aspiring translators: literal translation. It’s not a secret that it is not always possible to translate word for word, especially if we translate from a language from one language family to a language from other language family.
