The course involves the communicative method in which the main emphasis is put on speaking skills. All lessons (also for beginners) are taught only in Polish. We usually work in international groups where Polish is the only ‘common’ language. The results of the communicative method can be seen very quickly and this is an additional motivation for students.
Conversations are practised from the earliest stages of learning by carefully designed exercises, such as simulations, role-plays and language games. Thanks to the spontaneous, stress-free communication, students break the language barrier quickly.
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 should also make students feel safe when they speak Polish.
We use textbooks that we have tested and that are liked by our students. Additionally, our teachers add their own interesting materials to the textbook material.
