Join Couchsurfing to see Lukasz’s full profile. It’s free!
I can't stress this enough - if you want to stay at my place, please have a complete profile and also read through mine.
Sadly, recently I get lots of copy-paste requests where it's easy to see that the traveller hadn't even taken a glance at what I wrote here. Still, it makes the thought-out messages the more appreciated.
Now for the description proper:
To find interesting work abroad
Just like everyone else, I believe myself to be unique.
Also, because CS doesn't show groups on the profile anymore, I'll state it here: I'm gay.
At the moment my philosophy is to stay concentrated on my life, stop getting distracted and annoyed by things I cannot change.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I try host and/or show around fellow CSers when only time allows.
I've done two CouchSurfing-based trips to Japan, together they took almost 2 months. I've hosted several CSers at my place. Also got some experience hosting outside of CS with participants of the Brave Kids Project.
I'm good at learning languages, I love reading in English and Portuguese. I'm also learning Japanese, French and a tiny bit of Swedish.
I'm also into computer games. I don't really play a huge range of titles, but when I find one that I really like, I can play it for hours on end. I usually play RPGs - The Witcher series, Fallout series, Deus Ex: Human Revolution etc.
I find biology interesting too, especially botany & herpetology, although I haven't been very active in that field for quite some time now.
Since I am interested in languages, in your request please tell me about at least one interesting word, expression or idiom from your language that is often used in your country, area or hometown. This will also serve as confirmation that you've read through my profile.
Music, Movies, and Books
Nowadays I mostly listen to classical music, choir music and jazz.
I don't watch a lot of films, but I do like The Hours, The Devil Wears Prada, Wall-E, How to Train Your Dragon, Brokeback Mountain.
As far as series are concerned, I enjoy Archer, Bob's Burgers, Orange Is The New Black, Mad Men, GoT, Daria and Spongebob Squarepants.
My favourite book authors are J. M. Coetzee, Yukio Mishima and Olga Tokarczuk. I read all kinds of books though, from the classics to spy novels, from contemporary to historical fiction.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Travelled around Japan by myself for 4 weeks in 2013.
Went on an internship to China for two months in 2011.
Was a part of Brave Kids project with some amazing people in 2009.
Teach, Learn, Share
Well, I'm a language teacher by profession, so I can teach you English and my native Polish.
I can teach the basics of teaching, what to do and what not to do, how to approach students, what makes a good lesson etc.
I can teach you a lot about different species of local plants if you find that interesting.
As for what I'd like to learn, I'd gladly welcome an opportunity to practice Portuguese, Spanish (both are getting rusty!), French and Japanese.
