Sad events in the world took over the beginning of 2022. KLUB DIALOGU report

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.

Action taken by KLUB DIALOGU School

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 manifesto

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!

We are constantly working for you and organising new Polish language courses

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.

Polish as a foreign language exam at B1 level

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.

The presentation of Polish films during Film Evenings has become a tradition

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!

– Polish?  We make it possible –

Many students have already found out that the Polish Language School KLUB DIALOGU is an extraordinary place where they do extraordinary things! SOLIDARITY WITH REFUGEES is a new project in which school employees got involved. Its purpose is to resist the mistreatment of refugees and to help to the best of our ability. We, the employees of KLUB DIALOGU, which is not only an educational institution, a school of Polish as a foreign language, but also a place for meetings, conversations, and exchange of experiences between people from different continents and cultures, cannot accept breaking the law, international conventions, and situations where refugees’ medical, material or asylum applications are refused. We also cannot accept hate speech and violence against people of other nationalities.

The actions we have taken so far include: participation in the ‘Stop Torture on the Border’ protest march and undertaking the project of writing and reading letters of support from foreigners who, for various reasons, found themselves in Poland and have a different status of stay in our country (read further here >>).

But that’s not all! In December, we plan to organise a ‘Collection of necessities’ (cleaning products, clothes, food), which will be donated to appropriate foundations to help. With our help, we also want to support one refugee to whom KLUB DIALOGU will provide a scholarship to learn Polish as part of the ‘Solidarity in Education’ program.

If you would like to join us – don’t hesitate! Any help is appreciated. You can bring items to the fundraiser, help with packing, or make a donation to the scholarship. Maybe together we can help more than one person in linguistic and cultural assimilation! Vouchers can be purchased at the school office or by making a bank transfer with the title Solidarity in Education’.

We could not miss the Sunday (17.10) march – protest: Stop torture at the border! A march of solidarity with refugees, which started at 2pm from the Charles de Gaulle roundabout, commonly known as the palm tree roundabout. It isn’t a coincidence that this was the place chosen by the organisers of the march. This exotic tree standing on the ‘Royal Route’ (Trakt Królewski) came about in December 2002 as an artistic project by Joanna Rajkowska, who wanted to commemorate the Jewish population, once inhabiting much of Warsaw, and from whom the name of Aleje Jerozolimskie Street (Jerusalem Avenues) was derived. The palm was also, according to the artist, a symbol of openness towards others.

We, employees of KLUB DIALOGU, which is not only an educational institution, the Polish language school for foreigners, but also a place for meetings, conversations, and exchange of experiences between people from different continents and cultures, cannot accept violations of the law and international conventions and situations where medical aid for refugees is refused, risking their health and even death.

Walking along the streets of Warsaw (ROUTE: Rondo de Gaulle’a, Plac Trzech Krzyży, Sejm, Plac Konstytucji, Metro Centrum), in a walk lasting over two hours, we wanted to show that we are in solidarity with the fate of people suffering at the borders and we believe that you should always protest when someone is hurt, or deprived of a chance for a normal life just because they were born in a country affected by war or other humanitarian crisis.

We also want to thank OUR STUDENTS who were with us at the protest. Thanks to them, we can learn tolerance and openness. Thank you for the lessons you teach us and for being there! When matters are important to us, let’s be together!
