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. 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 four trimesters a year: January–March, April–June, July–September and October–December.
How many times a week are the lessons conducted?
The lessons are conducted twice a week (between Monday to Thursday) 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 for the course only through the application form at the bottom of the page. Please note 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 before the start of the classes.
How can I contact you?
The application for the free Polish Language Courses for Foreigners will be open:
- from 18 to 20 September 2023,
- from 2 to 4 January 2024.
The Polish language courses are organised as part of the project „About Poland in Polish”, financed by the NOWEFIO Civic Initiatives Fund Programme for the years 2021-2030.
