Polish Upper Beginner Group Courses in London
We have a couple of courses running which are not listed here. Please do get in touch if you already know some Polish please and would like to join in - we will assess your level and invite you to a free tester lesson in order to find you a suitable group.
For students who have a very, very limited knowledge of Polish or completed our 25-hour beginner group course.
Christmas Break Dates: 21 Dec 2018 - 6 January 2019
We offer 2 types of courses for this level: a longer 24-hour course split over 16 weeks and a shorter course of 12 hours split over 8 weeks. Please be advised that within a 24-hour course you will cover twice as much material as within a 12-hour one, so effectively, you will need to take 2 courses of 12 hours to cover the content below.
We use "Hurra! Po polsku 1" by A. Szymkiewicz & M. Malolepsza. During the 24-hour course you will cover lessons 6 to 10 (or 6-8 in the case of the 12-hour course). You can purchase it from us at £30.

Missing a class
We understand that missing a class is sometimes unavoidable.
In order to help you to catch up on a missed class we will email you information about the topics and pages you need to cover before your next class. You may wish to consider booking an additional individual catch-up lesson with one of our teachers, who will get you up to speed with everything. The fee is £35/hour and you can book it here (please select "tester lesson").
We are unable to offer you a space in another group, so that you can catch up on a missed session. The reason is simple - often we don't have two groups at the very same level at a particular time. We also think that inviting students from other groups may disrupt the peace of a particular class and may cause inconvenience to our students. We hope you will understand.
Take your time when booking a course as we offer no refund in case you change your mind for whatever reason.
It works similarly to plane ticket reservation. Once you sign up for a course your space is secured and it will not be offered to anyone else. From that moment you will not be able to transfer money towards individual lessons or any other product advertised on our website, nor to request a refund. This is down to the fact that we have limited spaces available in each group (maximum 7) and we want to ensure that once a course is confirmed we can run it for the promised number of weeks with no disruption to our students.
Please be advised that we offer no refund for any unattended classes (see section “Missing a class”).
You are entitled to full refund in case your course gets cancelled due to low numbers. You will be offered alternatives and in case nothing suitable we will sort out your refund right away back to your original method of payment.
If after the first group class you decided that you need to move a level up or down we may be able to offer placement in an alternative group (subject to your level assessment and group availability).
- Missed a starting date? Not to worry. You can still join in and pay for the remaining weeks. Simply get in touch with us.
- Small groups with up to 7 students, meaning that you can talk and talk ... in Polish of course.
- Don’t worry if you have to miss your class - we will email you your lesson update or you can book a make-up class at £35/hour.
- Course book not included in the course fee. You can purchase it from us at £30.
- New Polish courses start every month.
