Do you know that there are 13 significant museums in Warsaw? The largest is the National Museum which is also one of the largest museums in Poland. Founded in 1862, collections of ancient art, Polish paintings from the 13th century, and also the gallery of foreign paintings (Italian, French, Dutch and German) are all on display.
At KLUBDIALOGU, during the holiday courses, we put special emphasis on the practical use of language as well as unconventional classes. That’s why you will not be bored with us! We will conduct practical lessons in the shop, park, or restaurant. We will also visit NATIONAL MUSEUM. It sounds interesting? See for yourself!
Oh, please no, don’t postpone we won’t let you go – alone!
WISŁA RIVER AND KAYAKING
Do you know?
In Poland, there are many rivers. The Wisła river is the most important and the longest Polish river (1047km) and it flows through Warsaw. Do you know, that the Wisła is only a Polish river, because here it has it’s beginning and it’s end. You’ll find its source at the Barania Mountain in the Silesian Beskids (in the south of Poland) to finally enter the Baltic Sea. The Wisła has many inflows of smaller rivers.
In KLUB DIALOGU, during summer Polish courses, we organise many additional events. One of which will be kayaking on the Wkra river. It’s a unique adventure and an opportunity to become familiar with the picturesque surroundings of Warsaw, and to actively spend time in an international and Polish environment. Join us!
ROYAL ŁAZIENKI PARK
Do you know?
Royal Lazienki Park (Łazienki Królewskie) is a beautiful park, that is almost in the centre of Warsaw. The most important monuments within the park are: the Palace on the Water, the Theatre on the Water, the Old Orange, the Chopin Monument and Belveder. The Royal Łazienki Park was founded in the 17th century, but the current shape owes to king August Poniatowski (the last king of Poland, 1732-98). The park connects elements of French and English gardens. Throughout summer, below the Chopin monument, live Chopin music concerts are organised.
In order to fully enjoy the charms of the Polish language and the most beautiful nature in Warsaw, during summer courses we will have lessons in the park, by the Vistula River and in the Old Town. Moreover, we will take you, among others, to a Chopin concert.

Lessons, meetings, online conferences are now a very popular and effective way to communicate and … learn Polish.
Many people think that the Polish language is difficult and cannot be learned online. But it is not true! KLUB DIALOGU Polish Language School has professional methods that guarantee the best results. These are: interesting individual and group lessons, interactive applications (games, quizzes, educational platforms), additional materials (audio, video), and modern equipment. This is why our school gets great reviews from students.
Online learning has real potential. First of all, it’s convenient and safe. You don’t have to physically go to classes, and you can join a Polish language course from another city or even from another country! You can sit comfortably in an armchair and learn as much as you like.
Secondly, your schedule of individual online Polish lessons is completely flexible. This is very important if you travel a lot, because you don’t have to miss studying anymore.
Thirdly, an important aspect is anonymity. The sense of distance helps a lot, especially those people who learn better on their own.
Learning Polish online is not boring at all. Nor is it any less valuable than classroom activities at school! Of course, the dynamics are different, but the Student-Teacher interaction is the same. The teacher conducts lessons in an organised manner, and the material from the lesson is easy to repeat and remember.
The passion, commitment, experience, qualifications, and great patience of the teachers of KLUB DIALOGU School are the advantages of online Polish language courses.
Why is learning Polish online at KLUB DIALOGU very effective?
# Manual – systematises knowledge; you can easily repeat the lessons
# Audio and video recordings – you can really feel the language
# Interactive games, quizzes – they encourage learning in a different, interactive way
# Presentations and additional materials – you can repeat and consolidate new words and grammar issues in an interesting way
# Difficult elements of grammar are repeated many times by the teacher
# It is the students who discover the grammar rules in the exercises themselves, which is why they remember them easily
Magda, teacher for 9 years:
‘At first I thought the screen would limit my expression. Now I know that working online is fully effective and enjoyable. Messengers and Internet applications facilitate the transfer of knowledge and are attractive to students. It’s very nice that sometimes you can play an online quiz instead of completing the exercises in the textbook’.
Agata, teacher for 8 years:
‘Now students feel comfortable with this form of learning Polish very quickly. To get to know the language well, the continuity of learning is very important. Online learning is a great way for those people who travel a lot or often stay overtime at work. Of course, it is a fantastic form for those who do not live in Poland, and contact with the Polish language is very important to them!’
Brian from USA:
‘Online lessons with KLUB DIALOGU are really effective: it is a great way to efficiently integrate technology with learning Polish as a foreign language. I plan to continue these lessons until I am fluent. It is a very convenient form of learning for both me and my teacher!’
Alessia from Italy:
‘I have had Polish lessons online for 2 years now. I had never had the opportunity to do this before and I thought that only direct contact with the teacher was important for learning. Now I know that thanks to such online lessons I have more time for myself because I don’t have to go to school and I can study at home. It’s very convenient!”
The KLUB DIALOGU Polish School for foreigners is constantly developing and responds to the market on an ongoing basis. That is why we are so attractive to our students. And because learning is our passion – nothing is impossible for us!
The year 2022 was full of many events that, from a global point of view, have had tragic consequences. Of course, we are talking about Russia’s unjustified invasion of Ukraine and the cruel war being waged against the country’s civilians. We also remember the huge wave of refugees on the border, terrorised by the Belarusian authorities and treated in no less cruel way by the Polish authorities. Read the KLUB DIALOGU report and learn more.
The KLUB DIALOGU school categorically opposes all these tragic events, not only in word but also in deed. When the first protests began under the slogan: ‘Stop torture at the border!’ – we couldn’t miss it. Walking through the streets of Warsaw, we wanted to express that we show solidarity with people who are hurt, whose chance for a normal life is taken away just because they were born in a country affected by war or a humanitarian crisis.
The war in Ukraine mobilised us to: initiate the collection of things and money for its inhabitants, organise free Polish language courses, participate in humanitarian convoys, take home refugees, and many, many other activities. See our blog post.
KLUB DIALOGU’s manifesto is simple and unambiguous. We, as employees of the KLUB DIALOGU Polish School for Foreigners, which is not only an educational institution, but also a meeting place for people from different continents and cultures, cannot accept a situation where the law and international conventions are broken.
We would also like to thank OUR STUDENTS who supported and continue to support our initiatives – it is thanks to you that we can learn tolerance and openness. Thank you for your lessons for us and for being you!
Despite these sad events, the KLUB DIALOGU Polish Language School for Foreigners was constantly working, organising Polish courses at all levels from A0 (for beginners) to B2 (advanced). During the year, classes were held on a regular basis (mainly in the evenings, 2-3 times a week).
The summer holiday period (June, July, August) turned this structure upside down as usual ?. Intensive courses prevailed (3 hours a day, every day), and students could additionally learn Polish, have fun, and chat during unique integration events. This year we invited our students to: KLUB DIALOGU’s birthday party, a trip to the Zoo in Łódź, bowling, silent disco dances and salsa, and canoeing on the Wkra River. See the summer holiday movie.
In 2022, we managed to conduct 4 exams for the State Certificate in Polish as a Foreign Language at B1 level. 190 people took part in four examination sessions appointed by the State Commission (in February, March, June, and November), and 179 passed the test and received the Certificate. Congratulations!
You too can take the exam and get the Certificate. Check the dates of the B1 exams in 2023 and the courses preparing for this exam. terminy egzaminów na B1 w 2023 roku oraz kursy przygotowujące do tego egzaminu. Check out.
Throughout the year, we invited the school to Film Evenings, during which Polish films with English subtitles were presented. It is a great opportunity to learn about the culture and lifestyle of Poles, as well as to understand their mentality.
And as of December, we have the pleasure of inviting everyone to see Polish films at the Wisła Cinema. PFFF: ‘Polish Films For Foreigners’ is a series of Polish films prepared in cooperation with the Wisła Cinema, Polonicum, and the School of Polish Language for Foreigners KLUB DIALOGU.
Thank you for being with us!

You’re welcome to join!
You probably noticed that the first week of May in Poland was a loooong weekend.
The day of May 3 is ‘Constitution Day’ in Poland, commemorating the adoption of the Constitution on May 3, 1791. It was the first Constitution to be passed in Europe and the second in the world (after the US Constitution passed in 1787). This event is considered to be one of the most important in the history of Poland. It had its further consequences… The adoption of this highest legal act provoked hostility of the Russian Empire, which in 1793 and 1795, together with Austria and Prussia, completely annexed Poland. Poland lost its independence for 123 years, only to regain it after the First World War in 1918.
The constitution passed on May 3 introduced a number of changes to the Polish system, in particular:
# heredity of the throne, which was to prevent foreign interference in the affairs of the Republic of Poland,
# improved the functioning of the state administration,
# gave new rights to all citizens.
Three original copies of the Constitution of May 3 are in the Central Archives of Historical Records in Warsaw.
In today’s Poland, May 3 is a day off, and people celebrate by participating in parades, concerts, and public appearances. The Constitution of May 3, although it was only in force for a year at the time, gave Poland an impulse to adopt a modern Constitution on April 2, 1997, which is still in force today.
In KLUB DIALOGU Polish Language School we teach not only the Polish language, but also share our culture, tradition and lifestyle with students. You too – are very welcome to our School :)!
2 years of the pandemic did not put us in such shock, disorientation, and anger as 2 weeks of the war in Ukraine caused by Putin’s Russia has ….
WE SAY ‘NO’ TO WAR! And we are not passively standing by watching. I am very proud of and thankful for the incredible commitment shown by the entire team of our Polish Language School for Foreigners KLUB DIALOGU. We talk a lot about how to help meaningfully. And our conversations result in action:
# We have launched a fundraiser that goes directly to a proven foundation run by people from Ukraine. This foundation directs appropriate help at a given moment directly to people in need;
# We invited Ukrainian families to our homes, providing them with shelter and support;
# Our teacher of Polish, as a coordinator and translator, travels with truck convoys to the Polish-Ukrainian border to coordinate the reloading of parcels with gifts;
# Our office coordinator organises collections and transports of military, medical, and humanitarian items. These deliveries have already reached Kharkiv and Suma!
# We bought food and hygiene products for infants and children from the funds raised by the team of KLUB DIALOGU School – the delivery has already reached the needy;
# We make food for Ukrainians who come to the Central Station, who are tired and hungry after a very long journey;
# We organised a free Polish language course called ‘Necessary in Poland’ for refugees, led free of charge by our teachers;
# To show another small gesture of support for people from Ukraine living in Poland, we also made decorations that welcome our students to the school.
# We go to demonstrations expressing: ‘NO to WAR’.
I would also like to thank our students who have committed themselves to helping. Contributions to the aid fund for Ukraine have exceeded PLN 7,300! Thank you very much, let’s keep raising more! www.pomagam.pl/klubdialogu
Dear Students! If you feel able to help – let us know. We will organise it together! For example, we can make food for those waiting at the Central Station together. We also count on your ideas.
Dear Ukrainians! There are no words to describe the tragedy that befell you. The whole world is with you, the whole of Poland is with you, the whole KLUB DIALOGU School is with you!

The pandemic posed many challenges for our Polish Language School for Foreigners KLUB DIALOGU, and although it has been with us for 2 years, it is still difficult to get used to. Let us remind you that the school was closed for 3 months in 2020 and all lessons were conducted online. However, soon after, in June 2020, we returned to Aleje Jerozolimskie, glad that we could be face-to-face again. Thanks to modern solutions introduced by KLUB DIALOGU, our students can now choose Polish language lessons online, or at school, or to learn Polish in a hybrid way, which is a perfect solution for people who prefer a full-time Polish language course, but in exceptional situations have the opportunity to connect to a lesson online.
At the same time, the employees of KLUB DIALOGU constantly take care of maintaining the appropriate hygienic standards at school. The classrooms are aired out after each lesson, and tables and other items are disinfected. Each student and each group has a choice whether masks are worn during Polish lessons or not.
All the actions we take are aimed at maintaining our common security in these difficult times. Therefore, we want to ensure that our Polish Language School for Foreigners will function (as before) online and offline, as long as state law allows us to do so. We feel strong in what we do!
KLUB DIALOGU school is 17 years old and this is not the first crisis we are dealing with, but it is definitely the hardest. However, looking at the last few months, we are sincerely convinced that with you we are able to adapt to any situation, and come out of each crisis even stronger. Why? Because we do what we love the most: we share our passion for the Polish language, tradition and culture.
At the end of 2021 we want to say to you: THANK YOU! Thank you for the support you give us.
