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.

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!
