Due to the risk of COVID - 19, all courses at Varia are held in small groups, in accordance with the sanitary safety rules. We care about our students and want them to feel safe and comfortable at our school. To learn more about the safety rules at Varia, click here.

We organise courses at all language levels (from beginner to advanced). Classes are held two times per week (2 x 90 minutes), in the morning or in the evening. 

Before starting your Polish language course, you will take a language test and have a conversation with our teacher, after which you will join an appropriate group (applies to those students who have already learned Polish). It is also possible to do the online test on our website. 

On our courses we use a communicative method that concentrates mainly on speaking skills (for more information about the method, click here). 

In the middle of a semester students take a mid-term test (written and/or oral) which checks their language progress at this stage). At the end of the semester, students take their final test – both oral and written. 

Students who are motivated to work harder and who have more free time can count on more homework. If, for some important reason, you cannot participate in your classes, you can access the materials on the student’s panel.

We also offer free conversations, thematic lessons and language workshops to our semester students (for more info about the cultural programme, click here).
