English, Deutsch, polski.gif
I use English passively on a daily basis. I listen to podcasts, read books, articles, and newsletters, and watch movies.
I use English actively on Medium, in the British Council (in a Business English C1+ course), and a little at work (some of my colleagues are English‑speaking).
Disclaimer: The articles on Medium undergo corrections.
My English is decent enough that Balsamiq has published an interview with me on their blog.
I read that Vimeo asks applicants to tell a joke in English to test their language skills during their recruitment process. I can’t even tell jokes in Polish, my native language.
I estimate that I’d need 3 weeks to 3 months to get used to using English actively on a daily basis. I expect our first conversation in English to be awkward. I know that’s not going to help you decide to hire me, but it’s worth it.
If you decide my English is too poor, I’m willing to take English classes even 5 days a week.
Ich habe fast 9 Jahre Deutsch gelernt. Ich erinnere mich an nichts. Ich würde mich aber gerne daran erinnern. Ich denke, dass es weitere 6 bis 9 Monate dauern würde, aber wenn es dir wichtig ist, bin ich bereit, es zu tun.
Polski jest moim językiem ojczystym.
GIFs are my forth language.
