Does anyone here know how the quality of the polish classes for foreigners taught at the University of Warsaw compare to the private language schools?

I don't know I am not an insider in the industry

still I would like to make a general remark - public higher education institutions used to house and tutor students from exotic places in commie times (Arabs and Africans mostly) - so they have decades of experience teaching Polish to foreigners - some newer private institutions may not be up to the mark if their staff don't have such a background

I would think that the University of Warsaw has good qualified teachers of Polish.
However:

The most important thing in Language Training Lessons is to know how many students per class because if the class has more than 6 students ,forget it, there is no way you can learn a language let alone Polish which is pretty difficult if you are going to be in a group of over 6 students.

Pick up a school where you can learn in a mini group if you want to be able to pronunce correctly, be corrected and get the teacher's attention.

I did an intensive course at a private school in Warsaw. It was pretty good. The only problem was that it was me with three Korean guys- who were very clever, however, I had a hard time understanding what they were saying- there written test were perfect but when we had to do conversation- I had a hard time with it.

Then the best is to have individual Polish lessons. I know of a very good teacher of Polish located in Warsaw who speaks several Languages.

PM me if interested.

Likewise. Though there is a lot to be said for having a teacher who cannot speak your language.

I have had both. Private lessons from a Prof. in Polish language and group classes. I learned a lot from both.
