A Polish website has published a snotty article mocking Polish-Americans. The author is Marta Nowak. The article is stupid and unkind.
Nowak operates from her conviction that she is "authentic" and Polish-Americans are "inauthentic."
Nowak is upset that Polish-Americans don't speak Polish language well. She is upset that Polish-Americans cling to Polish food as comfort food and as an identifier.
She is upset that Polish-Americans dance polka. She does not want them to dance polka.
Marta Nowak, here's a news flash for you. Polish-Americans are not inauthentic versions of people born in Poland. There were *not* born in Poland. They are authentic versions of Polish-Americans.
More: we really don't need any more ridicule.
And here's another fact for you. Yes, I make mistakes in Polish language. Guess what? Every one of my Polish language teachers were Poles born in Poland. And most of them -- with one exception -- were the absolute worst teachers I've ever had in my life, in any subject.
I used to teach English language overseas and in the US. There are good ways to teach a language.
Poles, at least in my experience, are not aware of *any* real language teaching methods.
