Intensive summer courses
Before starting the course, you are going to take a written and oral test after which you’ll be classified to a suitable group (applies to those students who have learnt Polish before). The course involves the communicative method, regardless of a group’s level.
It means that all lessos, also for beginners, are taught only in Polish. The results of the communicative method can be seen very quickly and this is an additional motivation for students. We usually work in international groups in which Polish is the only ‘common’ language’.
The exercises are designed in such a way to reflect real-life communication. That’s the reason why our lessons are full of dialogues, discussions in pairs, role-plays and language games.
We not only teach to speak, but also how to speak. We pay great attention to linguistic correctness, pronunciation and usage of grammatical skills. Grammar should be a tool of sentence formation and conversations. It also should make students feel safe when they speak Polish.
During the course we are working on our own materials as well as using the text and exercises from the popular books to teach Polish. For the beginner levels our teachers have prepared a coursebook, which contains grammar and vocabulary on the A1 level. It is based mostly on communication and lexical exercises.
