Polish for Beginners Levels 1, 2, 3 & 4
The course is aimed at those who have no previous knowledge of the language. Students will learn, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, to carry out basic language tasks in Polish, such as to be able to establish basic social contact by using the simplest everyday polite forms of greetings, farewells, introductions, saying please, thank you, sorry etc.
The course will particularly focus on the language use needed to deal with everyday situations. The emphasis will be on speaking the language. However, the course will also provide students with some basic structural knowledge of the language.
It covers all areas such as reading, writing, speaking, listening, grammar and pronunciation. Classes focus on some of the following topics:
- Introducing yourself and others
- Speaking about yourself, i.e. name, job, nationality, hobbies
- Speaking about your family
- Booking a hotel and checking in
- Booking a table – Eating and drinking out/ ordering meals
- Asking for and understanding directions
- Going shopping
- Complaining and apologising
- Arranging to meet
- Telephoning – Leaving a message – Taking a message
- Using public transport
- Coping in an emergency
- Polish culture
In class there will be great emphasis on using the language as much as possible and students will be asked to do some written exercises based on the topics used in the class. Students are also expected to participate in oral classroom activities.
The course is based on the communicative approach:
-active students’ interaction
-emphasis on speaking and listening skills
-pair and group work
-use of realia, pictures and authentic material
-use of audio-visual techniques when appropriate

**All of our Language Courses (Adult & Children classes) require a minimum of 10 registrants in order to take place. Whilst we expect to reach this minimum in all courses, in the event that there are not enough participants registered by the Sunday evening before the first day of the course, we reserve the right to cancel the course and process a full refund of fees paid to the student/parent.
***Please be advised that whilst a ‘deposit paid’ secures your place onto a course, it does not guarantee admission to the course. In order to gain admission to any of our courses, fees need to be paid in full prior to the course start date. The reason for this is mainly because for many of our courses the full ‘book of notes’ for the entire course is handed out at the first lesson. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation with regard to this. We reserve the right to refuse admission to any student who has not paid the course fees in full prior to the start date of the course (ie. the first lesson)
