12-week course: £115 (reduced from £145)
Our next Polish courses will start 20th April 2020.
Due to the Coronavirus, we have moved the current courses onto a ‘live online platform’, which can be accessed via computer, tablet or phone and have found it to be a brilliant way to deliver language classes. Therefore, we have decided to continue the April courses in this way.
We will begin the term with ‘live online lessons’, where students and the teacher can see each other and speak all together and in smaller groups. The teacher can present by sharing slides, worksheets and videos. These interactive facilities allow linguistic games to be played and fun activities to happen. We have been trialling this with our current courses and have received positive feedback from our students.
Regarding cost, our course prices are reduced as most classes will probably take place online. We hope the courses can end as face to face lessons at the venue, where we will have a big party in the lessons to celebrate.

Polish is necessary if you want to visit Poland or to communicate with Polish people living in Southampton in their native language. The Polish language helps us to understand the Polish and Eastern European culture better and to stretch our cognitive abilities. We aim to help you to learn Polish in an informal, comfortable environment. Our experienced and qualified teachers are friendly and highly skilled. You will learn by listening to audio excerpts, watching short video clips, reading interesting stories and articles. You will learn grammar through practice exercises, both written and spoken. Phrases are introduced and students are encouraged to practise by speaking in small groups. By the end of a beginner’s course, you will be able to communicate in Polish using simple phrases and sentences.
I have taught personal development in my home country of Poland from 2000 to 2011. Now I have been an education lecturer at Polish University in London from 2011, as well as working in primary schools. I have been teaching Polish as a foreign language for 2 years. I approach learning with a sense of fun and adventure, using modern interactive methods.
