Preparatory Course for the State Certificate in Polish as a Foreign Language

Having a State Certificate confirming fluency in the Polish language is a formal requirement in the process of applying for a Polish citizenship. The Certificate is also an asset for foreigners who wish to work in Poland. Our course will help you to prepare for the State Certificate Examination.

Additionally, during the course students become familiar with the format of the exam and the type questions they can expect. With the help of experienced language teachers and examiners, they practice writing the exam and acquire the language skills they lack. A lot of emphasis is put on advanced writing skills.
