Why Varia?

This year we’re celebrating the 15th anniversary of Varia – here come 15 reasons, why you should choose our school.

  • From the very beginning we teach Polish – and Polish only - to foreigners.
     
  • We offer a wide range of courses to choose from – intensive ones, semester groups, summer classes, 3-weeks courses, online lessons…we’re opening groups on all levels of advancement, from A1 to C2 (consisting of 13 levels). Hence, whether you’re only at the beginning of  your adventure with Polish langue or you’re already a proficient speaker, you will always find a group for yourself.
     
  • At our school we teach around 1000 students annually. We’ve been already hosting at Varia students from over 100 countries!
     
  • We regularly carry out surveys evaluating our work. We are happy that 98% of students are satisfied with their courses and they willing to continue their studies at our school.
     
  • Students value our passion and commitment we put into our work, as well as the individual approach applied to each person.
     
  • We monitor progress of our students and motivate them to further studies. During the courses we carry out writing and oral tests, so as to prepare progress reports and issue certificates.
     
  • Each course is enriched with interesting activities (such as Polish pronunciation, pierogi’s workshop, thematic seminars – about Polish movies, music etc.)
