Program

The Polish Language Course is addressed to beginners with no or very basic Polish skills. The aim of the program is to equip participants with elementary language skills useful in everyday life. During the course of study the participants will practice speaking, listening, reading, and writing, which will allow them to express themselves and communicate freely in Polish, in daily social situations.

The program offers a modern and practical approach to language learning, which ensures that course participants quickly improve their Polish skills. We conduct periodic assessments, which show participants their progress and indicate areas for improvement.

Assessment

The course starts with a written and oral assessment test, which allows us to place participants in groups appropriate to their Polish language competency. Learning at the appropriate level ensures rapid skill development and allows participants to communicate with an increasing ease and confidence.
