Program

LEVEL A1-A2

This level is addressed to beginners with no or very basic English skills and for those needing to improve their English language competencies in order to enter a degree program at SWPS University. 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 English, in daily social situations.s). Participants learn in an international environment, which gives them an additional opportunity to practice English skills during informal interactions with each other.

Level B1-C1

This level is designed for intermediate users of English who need to improve their English language competencies in order to enter a degree program at SWPS University. The program focuses on equipping the participants with language and basic academic skills, necessary for successful progress through their degree program(s).

The program offers a modern and practical approach to language learning, which ensures that course participants quickly improve their English skills. Classes take place Monday to Thursday, so on Fridays particpants can either attend Polish Prep School or participate in other events at SWPS University. We use Oxford University Press Coursebooks (cost included in the course fee). Each group is taught by two teachers so that you can experience different accents and teaching methods. We conduct periodic assessments, which show participants their progress and indicate areas for improvement. Upon successful completion of the course and achieving a passing grade from the final exam, participants receive language proficiency certificates that open doors to further education in English, at the university level.

There is also an option to combine the English Preparatory School with 120 hours (60 per semester) of Polish Language Course

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

Next Steps

Course participants who by the end of the English Preparatory School do not achieve at least CEFR B2 language proficiency or those who would like to further develop their English skills, may enroll in our English Language Summer School to ensure that they meet language competency requirements for their chosen university program of study.

Advantages

Multicultural Environment

English Proficiency Certificates

Innovative Methodology and Best Lecturers
