    Hello,
    My name is Barbara, from Poland, and I am researching for a diploma and need to contact people teaching English as a foreign language in nurseries/kindergartens abroad. My topic/research thesis is about teaching English to very young learners in different European kindergartens. Could somebody help me, please? I would be grateful!!!!!!!
