"Polonus offer a very stimulating way to learn the notoriously difficult Polish Language. Their courses are well prepared and are communicated in a clear and positive way by enthusiastic teachers. The different learning methods and techniques adopted by Polonus encourage a high level of student interaction and it is this level of interaction that develops positive results and a rewarding experience. The staff at Polonus considers you a friend as they help to integrate you into the community by offering advice and services to support your daily requirements. After six months of learning, I certainly do not consider myself an expert, but my understanding of the language and the ability to communicate have increased my standard of living here in Lodz, Poland. I thank and recommend my friends at Polonus."
(Paul, 32, Manager, England)
"I enjoyed the course very much. I like that it was not just a normal student-teacher relationship. It was more like friends speaking and learning together, which I enjoyed. I also liked that we were speaking a lot and the instructor would correct me whenever I made a mistake-this helped me improved my Polish a lot!"
(Sarah, 23, ERASMUS student, Germany)
"The lecturer was always motivated, patient, and positive in the way of teaching. It was also motivating to get positive feedback about my progress in Polish. Inversing the teacher-student role where the student explains to the teacher of the grammar taught in class, was a good way to make ideas clear."
(Nicolas, 23, Student, Switzerland)
"The lecturer is talented and she’s always smiling. She teaches at a good pace and she’s easily understood."
(Enis, 38, Turkey)
"Love the games and that the teacher was very accurate with explaining problems that we had about the language."
(Christian, 32, Masters Student, Norway)
"I really like the interest she shows, repeating many times if necessary and explaining everything very clear. Teacher followed my rhythm and I learned a lot. Thank you for teaching all the help and teaching me during all these months. I'm very proud to know you."
(Roser 40, Chemist, Spain)
"It is in my price range, it is flexible in course scheduling, it allows me to meet new students who are not Poles and it involves young people with a different approach to teaching. Teacher is a very likeable person herself, a definite plus when rooting for somebody's attention and cooperation."
(Ioana 36, English Teacher, Romania)
“Taking private lessons sometimes it could be boring but with Kamila and Kinga they were not. With Kamila we play some games using the dice and with Kinga she was nice enough to write some verbs in Spanish for me to translate to Polish. They both gave me a good amount of home work especially Kinga, but this is good I’m not complaining. I wanted to learn and this is OK with me. In my case since I have private lessons and having 2 teachers was good, on one side when I was taking lessons with Kamila, she is the person who would speak slowly and with a tone of voice a bit high anyway I’m learning the language correct. In the other hand Kinga was speaking a bit faster and with a normal tone of voice, for me it worked fine because when I speak with people at work or in the street they will not talk slowly. As you see having 2 teachers was very good for me because I experienced 2 different situations.”
(Raul, 43, Peru)
"Kamila zawsze miała kilka ciekawych sposobów jak nauczyć języka obcego. Była bardzo miła i dobra. Jej lekcje były naprawdę interesujące, dlatego chciałabym jeszcze uczyć się z jej pomocą. Dobra lokalizacja, mili nauczyciele, przyjacielska atmosfera."

“About teacher: gives examples in my native language, creates friendly and relaxed atmosphere that makes studying pleasant, initiates conversations on subjects that are interesting for the students and asks them to express their opinion in Polish – for cuisine, fashion etc., so it is not only reading from the textbook.
