Hey, I don't know if you're still looking for a school or not, but PFF school (which is in the Old Town) is pretty awesome, and the owner is the most awesome person in the world. :) I took a term of Polish from them, and learned a lot, even though I was in a class with students at a lower level than myself. They're maybe 100-200zł more expensive than the average price for three months, but well worth it IMO.

Their site is here -> pff-warsaw.com/en/ (sorry I can't put the full URL, I haven't posted enough so they think I'm spam and won't let me :'))

Good luck with your studies!

Hi Petra, I was studying with Academy Pff Warsaw, they have office by the old town. I had classes with a very good teacher, I think her name was Ivona.

They had good price deals and not too big groups, I was enjoying classes a lot.

Gero, I was studying with pff-pff.com. I started with individual classes, then I changed into small group. I moved there from IKO, I prefered course at Pff much more, they cared more about the course and students. But this is only my opinion.

Nothing's impossible :) If you have motivation and really want to learn, you will be successful :) If you have strong self-motivation and want to start learning a language from the beginners level you should maybe try look for some online courses. Polish might be hard to learn for some people and obviously, like learning any other language, it is really time-consuming. I can suggest that you’ll have a look on some online courses which are both time- and money- saving.

there is no need to spam the forum with your website.

I was a student at SGH and took Polish courses there. The teacher they have is great and had created her own book/handouts. She recommended the Polski mniej obcy books, but I don't know if there's a beginner level for that... it wouldn't hurt to check out the options, there are tons of courses available in Warsaw!

I am taking classes at Polonicum at the University of Warsaw. My instructor has been very good but the class is too big (fifteen or so). My wife and I also took private lessons from polish4you.waw.pl/start.php?lang=en

I was extremely pleased with Anna Wojtasiak as a teacher. She tailored our course to our needs, came to us and taught in our apartment, and it was not as expensive as I had expected.

Hi, I recommend you CJP. They use communicative method, focusing on day to day needs. With them Polish seems quite easy and lessons give you a great fun without any stress. You can choose individual or group courses intensive or regular or "Survival Polish".

Try it!
You can find more details on website cjp.pl

CJP.

They don't have a good reputation.

well, I can recommend 2b language consulting (visit their web 2b.edu.pl), as they do good job, just contact them and ask for details.

anyway, polish isn't an easy language to learn with all these crazy grammar rules... :///

good luck guys!

Do you find it easy to learn Polish in Poland?

Well, it's a lot easier to learn here in Poland than in Dublin, that's for sure :) I suppose the key thing for me is having the chance to practise and even though I live here in Warsaw, I don't really speak that much.

With regards to the courses though, I've taken courses with a few schools in Warsaw but the only school I've gone back to (taking my 3rd course now) is Pola (pola.edu.pl) so I suppose that's about as a good a recommendation as I can give. I'm moving to Wrocław in the next few months though, so if anyone has any tips for a school there, I'd love to hear!

At the moment I'm taking courses from Pola (pola.edu.pl). I've taken a few courses with others schools but these guys are the only ones I've gone back too. Plus they're really good at giving you extra classes if you've missed a few. But I suppose the most important thing is that I've always been placed in a group that's at or just above my level. The first few schools I went to didn't really seem to care if the other students in the class were at the right level and to be honest it's a complete waste of money when you're in a class with people who are a few levels below or even above! So whatever you do, make sure you're happy with the level of the group!

Merged: Best Polish Language Course in Warsaw?

Hi,

I know it feels like this conversation has been beaten to death with a hammer, a bat and a lawn mower, however, I feel like all the threads are old and I would love some new insight on the situation...

I want to take a Polish language course and would love to know your opinion on which ones are the best?

So far, I've found these:

CJP: cjp.pl/eng/polish_courses.php

CPS: learnpolish.edu.pl

IKO: iko.com.pl

Or something else maybe?

I don't want a private lesson. I would like to take a course with other people for social benefits too. It's so freaking cold but I cannot stay in any longer!!

Thank you for your help ;)

Alice
