About me

My name is Mateusz [matɛʷuʂ] and I’m a linguist, teacher and researcher. All my life has revolved around languages and language. I am one of those who believe a phonetics textbook is just as good a mood booster as a tub of chocolate ice-cream.


I graduated in Spanish studies from the Jagiellonian Univeristy of Cracow in 2007 (where I also obtained my teaching qualification and studied French and Catalan) and got my Master's Degree from the Autonomous University of Madrid in 2009. I also hold a Postgraduate Certificate in Translation and Linguistics from Universitat Oberta de Catalunya. I am currently working on my PhD dissertation in English Linguistics at the Complutense University of Madrid.


I have over 10 years' experience as an English teacher (GE, ESP), including 8 years at university level. I have also taught Spanish as a foreign language to private students and groups. I am currently a lecturer in English Phonetics and Phonology for Education degrees at Universidad Francisco de Vitoria, Madrid as well as a DELE examiner certified by the Instituto Cervantes.


In my free time I travel, hang out with friends, read, have naps, cook and eat, study foreign languages (currently honing my German) and do MOOCs seeking constant self-improvement.
