Linda Polkowski

Postgraduate Supervisor


I am a Postgraduate Supervisor at the School for Business and Society and have worked at the University of York since 2020. After gaining my MA in English Language Teaching and Applied Linguistics and the Trinity College London Diploma in TESOL, I worked as a Vice Principal and Academic Manager for 18 years and also undertook overseas marketing responsibilities. I am interested in English for Business, teacher training, CLIL(Content and Language Integrated Learning) methodology and intercultural competence.  

My teaching experience includes training EU and Chinese teachers, lead teaching in an Erasmus Plus KA2 CLIL project, vocabulary methodology, pre-sessional teaching and exam preparation.

Additionally, I am a member of an EU Learn & Lead committee to promote leadership and soft skills for language trainers in Europe. I have also enjoyed teaching abroad in Japan and Iceland.
