Polish Courses in Krakow

Location: Krakow (Poland)
Courses' duration: 2 weeks each
Period: Feb. 3 - Oct. 18, 2008

Language instruction

Beginning on February 3, 2008, the courses run until October 18, divided into a winter/spring session and a summer session (see the dates of sessions in 2008).

The courses are designed for beginners as well as for participants at all levels of proficiency in Polish.
On average, the participants of each two-week session are divided into 6-7 groups, ranging from beginners to advanced (conversational) level. The large number of groups and language levels allows placement of all participants in groups appropriate to their particular language skills, makes the groups more homogeneous with respect to the language level of the participants, and consequently makes a strong contribution to efficient language learning.

Each course comprises six units of language lessons a day (45 minutes each), five of which consist of regular classroom instruction, and the sixth is an instructor office hour for interested students. Classes meet Monday through Friday in the morning. In the afternoon, various extra-curricular activities are scheduled.

At the end of the course all participants receive a certificate of course completion with a grade.

Cultural and Social Program

Combining the aim of teaching Polish with that of introducing participants to Polish culture and tradition, a cultural program accompanies the language courses. This program includes the following:

  • introductory guided tour of Old Krakow
  • welcome and farewell parties
  • a day trip to the mountains combined with a hiking tour
  • workshop on Polish folk dance
  • afternoon with a Polish movie
  • field trip to a historic salt mine in Wieliczka
  • evenings of jazz or traditional Jewish music in traditional restaurants and pubs
