Polish Course for Missionaries and Guides
The aim of the project is to enable foreign missionaries to adapt in their Polish professional environment as quickly as possible and to provide them with the specialist course of Polish as a foreign language with taking into consideration cultural differences. The project have contributed a lot to the methodology of teaching Polish as a foreign language since the target group is very specific with special requirements and a totally new approach and materials have had to be adopted. For that purpose two elements have been treated as priority: possibility of close contacts with the natives and seeking universal values as far as cultural component is concerned. Similar approaches have been adopted for teaching foreign tourist guides from Israel and for teaching German clearance officers working on Polish-German border.
