– 波兰, Bōlán (Poland) is my second home. I fell in love with this country. It is very beautiful and filled with rich culture. People are forthcoming, friendly and open here. Many people at the University of Warsaw share these values – says Qian Li-Piszczek, a language teacher at the Chinese Studies Department of UW.
Qian Li-Piszczek graduated from the University of International Business and Economics and the Graduate Academy of Science in Beijing. She has come to Poland in the late 90s. and she has been working at the Faculty of Oriental Studies of the University of Warsaw since 1999.
As a native speaker, she teaches Modern Chinese Language to students. However, she knows the Polish language too, therefore, she also provides education in Polish, e.g. Chinese writing. – A sinologist is a person who not only speaks Chinese but also has a broad knowledge on Chinese history, literature, philosophy and culture. UW is the only one institution in Poland that provides education regarding both traditional and simplified Chinese characters – explains the teacher.
