Izolda Wolski-Moskoff is a director of Polish and Russian Language Programs and a visiting lecturer of Polish at the University of Illinois Chicago. She holds a PhD in Slavic Linguistics with a specialization in Second Language Acquisition from the Ohio State University and an MA in Polish Philology from Copernicus University in Toruń, Poland. Her research is focused on the Polish heritage language in the US. In her dissertation on the grammatical cases in heritage Polish, she studied the language of college-age Polish heritage speakers, gaining invaluable insights into the language skills of a population that still makes up a considerable portion of Polish enrollments in the US. Part of her research was published in the book "Dwujęzyczni i dwukulturowi. Bilingual and Bicultural. Speaking Polish in North America" (2017), aimed at serving the Polish community by promoting bilingualism among parents of heritage speakers.
