1:1 and Group Polish Courses in Oxford

Our Polish courses are usually offered by our clients as 1:1 training for their employees. Group sessions, however, are also available and can be excellent value for money. Planning is required so that participants all meet at the same time each week, and we recommend that numbers are kept to 6 or less. 1:1 Polish lessons at Oxford mean that you will have your individual needs, weaknesses and strengths catered for, so that your progress is quicker.

A multi-lingual Account Manager with extensive experience is responsible for each SIMON & SIMON Polish language course. A profile on your trainer, Course Plan and course materials will be sent to you when you start your Polish course. After every 40 hours of training you will receive a Progress Report. We will also send you Breaking the Language Barrier, our quarterly newsletter, which contains a wonderful prize draw and valuable language learning resource weblinks.

Polish Course Locations & Schedules

SIMON & SIMON has arranged Polish language courses for clients in numerous locations, and with our global network of language trainers we can organise a Polish language course for you wherever you are – in almost any major city in the UK, Europe and beyond. The vast majority of our Polish lessons take place at our clients’ offices, removing the need for you to travel, but Polish lessons can take place in your home if that is more convenient. We can also arrange full-time residential Polish language courses for you – just contact our office for information on available destinations.

Oxford Polish Course Schedules

The Polish language courses in Oxford that we run go on through the year. Each week, most of our students will attend at least one of our 90-minute lessons, but many will do more. We can also arrange Weekend Courses for you. Polish courses run from Monday to Friday, any time from 8am to 6pm. Intensive Polish language courses can be arranged in residential centres abroad or in the UK, or on clients’ premises for 30 hours per week, 6 hours a day Monday to Friday.

Polish Course Content

Before you start your Polish language course we will assess your level of Polish and speak to you about your aims so that your Polish language course can be customised for you. You may have never been exposed to Polish before and wish to develop basic survival skills, or you may have some experience and wish to be able to speak more fluently in Polish when discussing business. You may want to further your ability to use Polish in negotiations and meetings or better your comprehension and pronunciation abilities. Whatever goals you may have, our experienced Polish language trainers will tailor your Polish course so that your goals can be quickly met.

Polish Language Examination Courses

We are happy to help in your preparation for any Polish examinations. Our students have a 95% pass rate and we think that their success shows the value of our policy of working with above-average experienced Polish teachers in Oxford.

About Polish

Polish describes a Lechitic subgroup of West Slavic languages in Central Europe and the official language of Poland. Its written standard is the Polish alphabet which corresponds to the Latin alphabet with several additions. Polish-speakers use the language in a uniform manner throughout most of Poland. Despite the pressure of non-Polish administrations in Poland, who have often attempted to suppress the Polish language, a rich literature has developed over the centuries and the language is currently the largest in terms of speakers of the West Slavic group. It is also the third most widely spoken Slavic language, after Russian and Ukrainian.

About Oxford

Oxford is a city, and the county town of Oxfordshire, in South East England. The city, made prominent by its medieval university, has a population of just under 165,000, with 151,000 living within the district boundary. The rivers Cherwell and Thames run through Oxford and meet south of the city centre. For a distance of some 10 miles (16 km) along the river, in the vicinity of Oxford, the Thames is known as The Isis. Buildings in Oxford demonstrate an example of every British architectural period since the arrival of the Saxons, including the iconic, mid-18th century Radcliffe Camera. Oxford is known as the “city of dreaming spires”, a term coined by poet Matthew Arnold in reference to the harmonious architecture of Oxford’s university buildings. The University of Oxford is the oldest university in the English-speaking world. Oxford was first occupied in Saxon times, and was initially known as “Oxenaforda”, meaning “Ford of the Ox”; fords being more commonly used than bridges at that time. It began with the foundation of St Frideswide’s nunnery in the 8th century, and was first mentioned in written records in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle for the year 912. In the 10th century Oxford became an important military frontier town between the kingdoms of Mercia and Wessex and was on several occasions raided by Danes. St Frideswide is the patron saint of both the city and university.

Assess Your Polish Level

The table below is based on recognised language levels used by various academic institutions across the European Union. A highly motivated student attending weekly sessions with their Polish language trainer in Oxford can expect to move from one level to another after 50 hours providing they also commit to a similar number of hours of self-study.

Of course, some people find learning languages easier than others, and some students will have more opportunities to practise Polish in the course of their work and leisure, so these factors also need to be considered when trying to assess how long it will take to move from one level to another.
