Do they have schools where they have subjects in English for expat children in Poland?

Hello,

I am planning to come on a work visa to Poland, please advise if there are schools for Indian children specially ones with English, or do you hv to compulsorily study Polish language?

There are schools in which all education provided in English. There are two basic types: the ones which are eye-wateringly expensive and pretty good (i.e. the British School of Warsaw and the American School of Warsaw; and the ones which are pretty expensive and not very good. Sorry.

Better that you find out about this before you come to Poland. There are also other schools which are only quite expensive but they tend to be terrible.

BC (British Council) sponsored schools have native-English-speaking teaching staff and are considered tops, but EXPENSIVE!!!

What age are your children?
Sometimes there's another less-expensive option but only in some locations, and only when the children are of middle-school age or older: a school which provides the Middle Years Program / International Baccalaureate will provide tuition in English.

My daughter took that option - had all her middle- and upper-school tuition (and exams) in English.
But prior to that she spent primary school in a standard Polish school because the other options were just too expensive for us.

Were her teachers native English speakers, I hope?

No, they weren't. But at least her Physics books were in English ;)

Pity, cij! I trust that at least at home, English as a primary native language was spoken to counterbalance the "English" they were/she was learning (for lack of a better word) in school:-)

yup. Native speaker + Native fluency. We only speak English at home - so it's her Polish that bore the brunt of that decision.

Fine. The child will thank you in years to come. Hearing native speaker English from BOTH parents in the home can make all the difference so the youngster doesn't grow up confused in their cultural aka linguistic identity:-)
