Free Polish language classes for adults in Warsaw
The Ocalenie Foundation invites foreigners living in Warsaw to free residential Polish language courses.
Who can apply for the course?
All adult foreigners living in Warsaw can apply for the course. Refugees, asylum seekers, immigrants from outside of the European Union, and students continuing learning with us have priority, but everyone is welcome.
What are our methods?
Our approach is communicative language teaching (CLT). We want the people coming to Poland and planning to stay here for longer to be able to communicate in the Polish language as soon as possible.
Who are the teachers?
Our teachers are volunteers – they do not receive any payment for their work; they are teaching out of the need to help foreigners. Usually they are not professional teachers of Polish as a second language, but each of them has gone through a training provided by Ocalenie Foundation staff.
How often do you organise the courses?
We organise three semesters a year: Spring (February–April), Summer (June–August) and Fall (October–December).
How many times a week are the lessons conducted?
The lessons are conducted twice a week (between Monday to Friday) and each takes 90 minutes.
What is the level of the course?
We teach at the beginner level. Currently, the most advanced language level you can achieve while studying with us is A2 (Elementary).
How can I apply?
You can apply only through the application form available at the Foundation’s website only during the application period. The form is not accepting applications before or after this time.
Attention! Before applying, please make sure you can actively and regularly participate – twice a week, at the time you specify in the application.
Each person will receive the results until the end of the month (depending on the semester – January, May or September).
How can I contact you?
The application for the free Polish Language Courses for Foreigners will be open in January 2023 (3-9 of January).
