SUMMER 2013

"I loved my two week stay in the beautiful city of Kraków. The course was great. All the teachers were very friendly and took the time to answer all my questions.
The culture trips were fantastic. Trips to Zakopane, Wieliczka Salt Mine, guided tours through Kraków and Kazimierz & also the option for a day trip to Auschwitz.
I improved my Polish Language immensely over the two weeks. Learning in the classroom and using the language outside of the classroom.
I met some new friends who all had the same aim as I did - To improve their Polish language!
I highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn Polish."

"As a monolingual English speaker who hasn't studied (or even attempted to communicate in) any other language since leaving school five years ago, as I boarded the plane to Krakow I suddenly found myself quite daunted by the prospect of embarking on learning a new and difficult language, let alone spending two weeks in a country I had never visited and staying with a family unable to speak anything other than Polish. However it turned out to be one of the most valuable life experiences I have ever had. The lessons were relaxed from the start, with our two excellent teachers making us feel completely at home whilst we progressed at an intense pace. This was assisted by our textbook and workbook which were very well structured. The pleasure
I got from learning the language has inspired me to take a further course in Polish at my home university. However in addition to this, there was the chance to spend time exploring one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, guided by the people who know it best. The information packs we were given proved invaluable, and the various tours and cultural activities supplemented our experience in a way that would not be open to tourists just visiting the city. For example, we were so privileged to be given the chance to be escorted through Nowa Huta and hike through the Tatra mountains, especially considering the extremely reasonable price of the course. An additional advantage of the trips and the evening activities, such as the wonderful evening spent watching the Old Metropolitan jazz band, was to cement friendship bonds between the students. As a result I didn't feel alone at all and there certainly wasn't time to get bored. Of course the only bad thing about this was that goodbyes were emotional. Now I'm back home I am missing Krakow and looking back on my experiences with nostalgia. What an absolutely unforgettable fortnight!"

"The Polish course of language and culture was one of the most important life experiences for me as a teacher and guide in Poland, concerned with the Jewish history in Poland and the tragedy that happened to our people in the second world war.
It was a wonderful experience to get to know Poland from a different point of view, more personal and not from the Jewish point only. I wish to keep in touch and to encourage more teachers and guides to take this course. Thanks to the wonderful staff and I wish to keep in touch!"

Israel Peleg (Israel)

"Thank you all for the fantastic time that I had in Krakow.
The Beginner's course was hard work but enjoyable. The teachers were enthusiastic and lessons were broken up by fun games and activities in Polish. The textbook and workbook were useful, especially as the workbook reinforced major points from lessons and helped with homework too. The cultural side of the course was excellent. Everyone enjoyed the Jazz group in the cellar pub and a number of us bought "Jasminum", which we had seen at the arthouse cinema, on DVD.
All of the walking trips were good and the English-speaking guide, Barbara, on the Old Town and Kazimierz tours was interesting and entertaining. All activities at the office were good and everyone was friendly. My photos of Krakow, the Salt Mines, Tatra mountains and Auschwitz have had many friends saying that they want to visit Krakow too!
Thanks again. I think that this was the best holiday that I had had in years! On the Saturday after the course had finished, I bumped into five different people around the town that I knew from the course- it was good to see friendly faces!"

"I cannot stress enough what a wonderful opportunity and great experience this Polish course is. I made real progress with my language in small space of time thanks to enthusiastic teachers and small classes. Cracow is an amazing place to spend two weeks with an active night life and a distinct atmosphere. On top of the classes, the school oranised some really interesting trips in around the city. I made really good friends with people from across Europe and Cracow.
It's also excellent value for money!"

"The course was well organised and the teachers enthusiastic and well prepared. Lessons were fast and furious, but that is what an intensive course is all about. The text book and work book, both with CDs, are clear and colourful. The students of all ages and nationalities blended well. The extra curricular activities were varied and interesting - from guided tour of the city, to the Salt Mine, a good trek up the mountains at Zakopane and a workshop of folk dancing. With lessons finishing at 2.30pm and evening activities starting 4.30 - 5pm, there wasn't much time for eating and homework! If you have time, it is worth staying on for a couple of days afterwards to enjoy the city at leisure to enjoy one of the concerts in the churches or buy a ticket for the opera. I was lucky to see Don Pasquale,which was a truly excellent performance.
I will definitely be returning to do the next level!"

"I cannot stress enough what a wonderful opportunity and great experience this Polish course is. I made real progress with my language in small space of time thanks to enthusiastic teachers and small classes. Cracow is an amazing place to spend two weeks with an active night life and a distinct atmosphere. On top of the classes, the school oranised some really interesting trips in around the city. I made really good friends with people from across Europe and Cracow.
It's also excellent value for money!"

"The course was well organised and the teachers enthusiastic and well prepared. Lessons were fast and furious, but that is what an intensive course is all about. The text book and work book, both with CDs, are clear and colourful. The students of all ages and nationalities blended well. The extra curricular activities were varied and interesting - from guided tour of the city, to the Salt Mine, a good trek up the mountains at Zakopane and a workshop of folk dancing. With lessons finishing at 2.30pm and evening activities starting 4.30 - 5pm, there wasn't much time for eating and homework! If you have time, it is worth staying on for a couple of days afterwards to enjoy the city at leisure to enjoy one of the concerts in the churches or buy a ticket for the opera. I was lucky to see Don Pasquale,which was a truly excellent performance.
I will definitely be returning to do the next level!"

SUMMER 2007

"As a monolingual English speaker who hasn't studied (or even attempted to communicate in) any other language since leaving school five years ago, as I boarded the plane to Krakow I suddenly found myself quite daunted by the prospect of embarking on learning a new and difficult language, let alone spending two weeks in a country I had never visited and staying with a family unable to speak anything other than Polish. However it turned out to be one of the most valuable life experiences I have ever had. The lessons were relaxed from the start, with our two excellent teachers making us feel completely at home whilst we progressed at an intense pace. This was assisted by our textbook and workbook which were very well structured. The pleasure
I got from learning the language has inspired me to take a further course in Polish at my home university. However in addition to this, there was the chance to spend time exploring one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, guided by the people who know it best. The information packs we were given proved invaluable, and the various tours and cultural activities supplemented our experience in a way that would not be open to tourists just visiting the city. For example, we were so privileged to be given the chance to be escorted through Nowa Huta and hike through the Tatra mountains, especially considering the extremely reasonable price of the course. An additional advantage of the trips and the evening activities, such as the wonderful evening spent watching the Old Metropolitan jazz band, was to cement friendship bonds between the students. As a result I didn't feel alone at all and there certainly wasn't time to get bored. Of course the only bad thing about this was that goodbyes were emotional. Now I'm back home I am missing Krakow and looking back on my experiences with nostalgia. What an absolutely unforgettable fortnight!"

"The Polish course of language and culture was one of the most important life experiences for me as a teacher and guide in Poland, concerned with the Jewish history in Poland and the tragedy that happened to our people in the second world war.
It was a wonderful experience to get to know Poland from a different point of view, more personal and not from the Jewish point only. I wish to keep in touch and to encourage more teachers and guides to take this course. Thanks to the wonderful staff and I wish to keep in touch!"

"Thank you all for the fantastic time that I had in Krakow.
The Beginner's course was hard work but enjoyable. The teachers were enthusiastic and lessons were broken up by fun games and activities in Polish. The textbook and workbook were useful, especially as the workbook reinforced major points from lessons and helped with homework too. The cultural side of the course was excellent. Everyone enjoyed the Jazz group in the cellar pub and a number of us bought "Jasminum", which we had seen at the arthouse cinema, on DVD.
All of the walking trips were good and the English-speaking guide, Barbara, on the Old Town and Kazimierz tours was interesting and entertaining. All activities at the office were good and everyone was friendly. My photos of Krakow, the Salt Mines, Tatra mountains and Auschwitz have had many friends saying that they want to visit Krakow too!
Thanks again. I think that this was the best holiday that I had had in years! On the Saturday after the course had finished, I bumped into five different people around the town that I knew from the course- it was good to see friendly faces!"
