The Polish Preparatory School program offers one-year or four-month non-credit courses. It focuses on the development of all language skills, such as speaking, listening, comprehension, reading and writing. Students learn Polish grammar, vocabulary and general language skills, indispensable at Polish universities and in daily life in Poland. Our courses are aligned with the requirements of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). Apart from language instruction, students have an opportunity to learn about Polish history and culture, including art, film, literature, and music. Classes take place in modern classrooms equipped with interactive tools, such as interactive whiteboards.

The Polish Preparatory School program has been designed for students who wish to undertake studies with Polish as the main language of instruction and need to improve their Polish language competence before entering university degree program. The courses are taught at all levels of proficiency, from A0 to C1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). Students are placed in groups aligned with the level of their Polish competency, in order to ensure the best teaching approach and rapid skill development.
