About us

Who are we?

The Centre for Polish Studies is a school of Polish language organising courses in Warsaw, Sopot and Cracow. We are a private institution, established in the year of 2000 by experienced tutors of Polish as a foreign language. We only employ qualified teachers who hold certification to teach Polish as a foreign language.

 

What do we do?

A different language is a different vision of life.

Federico Fellini
Film director (1920 - 1993)

 

Our mission is to help foreigners get to know not only Polish, but also Poland: we believe that language, although it is key to understanding a country and its people, is not enough – therefore, we also teach our students culture, economy and history of Poland.

         Our teaching methods take all facets of language learning into consideration: reading, writing, speaking, and comprehension. The teaching materials that we use include excerpts from the most recent publications as well as our own handouts. We use modern teaching methods, such as drama and language games, conversation, audio and video materials. We use the most contemporary textbooks and materials, according to the level and needs of the students. We place emphasis on all aspects of the language: speaking and comprehension, reading and writing,

         We are certain that you will make great strides in Polish at our school, and we are eager to help you learn to do business in Poland, if so desired. In the past, our clientele has included consultants and advisors of companies and institutions such as: Bank Pekao SA, Ove Arup&Partners International Ltd, American School of Warsaw, The European Parliament, and various foreign embassies.

SOPOT(www.sopot.pl) is the 'summer' capital of Poland and well known seaside resort, where thousands of international tourists walk along the pier or soak up sun on the beach. Sopot has great places for leisure and recreation: cinemas, an opera house, tennis courts and art galleries. It is surrounded by a picturesque countryside, full of forests, hills and crystal lakes. Sopot lies between two major cities, Gdańsk and Gdynia. 


  GDAŃSK is rich in history of over 1000 years with monumental Gothic cathedrals. It holds a special place in Poland's recent history as the cradle of Solidarity. Artur Schopenhour - the philosopher, Jan Heveliusz - the famous astronomer and Gunter Grass - the Nobel prize winner in 1999, all come from Gdańsk. In the north you can find a modern, fast developing industrial and port city called GDYNIA.
