Summer School provides not only regular Polish language lesson, but also other learning possibilities, like language games, students’ theatre in Polish, “Polish life and Culture” seminar, Foreign Master of Polish Language competition,  and many others. Students do have a chance to check their language progress during a specially designed Polish language spelling test.

Organizers prepared a great deal of other attractions like Polish films’ presentations, fascinating excursions, concerts and meetings with interesting people. The excursions include trips to Cracow, Beskidy mountains, Upper Silesia, Oświęcim, Pszczyna, Jura Krakowsko-Częstochowska, as well as sightseeing tour in Cieszyn.
