Project Description

The Linguae Mundi Foundation is a specialist in organising high-level education in the Polish language. For this project, the Foundation offered Polish language courses to non-EU migrants both in a traditional classroom format as well as by way of e-learning. In the case of the latter, each teacher prepares separate tasks to be completed via the internet. The language courses are complemented by lectures about Polish culture to aid integration into Polish society.

Non-EU migrants also had the opportunity to socialise with each other and with Polish citizens when taking part in various cultural events, such as at the showing of Polish films and exhibitions, or while celebrating Polish national holidays.

Benefits and results

As a result of the project, the non-EU migrants had the opportunity to gain an official language certificate. They also benefitted from the assistance of experts and the State Commission for the Certification of Proficiency in Polish as a Foreign Language, whose involvement guaranteed a high level of teaching.

The language classes were attended by some 80 people, divided into eight groups according to their level of ability. About 1 000 hours of Polish language classes and 8 hours of Polish culture lectures were given, and 10 non-EU migrants gained the official certificate in Polish as a foreign language.

The participants came from 31 different countries and some were newly arrived immigrants with no particular knowledge of the Polish language. The migrants were of different ages, experiences, and cultures.
