Does anyone know anything about recognised qualifications/certificates for students of Polish as a foreign language?
I have read that the Jagiellonian University (Krakow) and Ljubjliana University (Slovenia) have developed a set of exams/qualifications that are recognised Europe wide, so probably worldwide.
T.I.P.S. (Testing in Polish and Slovene) is something to do with 'SOCRATES'. Which, I think (?), is the E.U's Language Education 'council' for member states.
If anyone could shine some light on this subject it would be very useful. It would be disappointing to collect a certificate from the 'Krosno Society of Bogus Examiners' or some such fly-by-night, not worth the paper it's printed on, examining body.
Again, a good thread that could be developed. I know that each country has their own grading scale and respective qualifications. I wanted to try the Japanese one but my knowledge of kanji wasn't good enough. I don't know who the relevant board responsible for validating such an exam would be. It would be useful to have such a certificate. Just see which bodies recognise it.
