Polish language courses-

Centre of Polish Language and Culture for Foreigners “Polonicum”​ is the oldest centre in Poland for teaching Polish as a foreign language. The Centre extends its offer to those who are interested in learning more about our language and country – students, as well as those unrelated to the university who wish to pursue Polish.

Apart from typical language classes, lecturers focus on teaching students a practical Polish, so that they are able to truly utilize their knowledge, even many years after graduating. Students participate in film screenings, multimedia programs acquainting them with Polish history and culture, as well as workshops.
