Editor's review

Do you remember how you learned your own language? Probably not. It just stuck, simply because you were surrounded by your mother tongue. Something similar happens to students at Varia Polish Language Center, a school specializing only in teaching Polish to foreigners.
Embraced by live language during Polish-only classes, at Varia you will be able to pick up Polish faster than you thought. In your journey through Polish, accompanied by experienced and enthusiastic teachers, you will be provided with both high quality lessons, and a friendly, ice-breaking atmosphere.
Regardless of your age, level and availability, Varia offers you a variety of course options, from two-week intensive courses to two-semester programs.
The school has been awarded with the 2012, 2014 and 2016 Places Award in the category "Service".

Awesome school, methodology, teachers, and atmosphere! No matter which format you prefer, long/short/individual/group courses or extra activities, it's all worth it!

Margarita from Russia Reply Feb 28th, 2017

Great place, the best teachers, friendly atmosphere :)

Artem and Kristina Rudenko from Ukraine Reply Feb 28th, 2017

I think it says a lot about the place when as you switch to another semester you don't hesitate even for a second to ponder other options. We didn't think that language can actually be savored, bite by bite (even though, I agree, some bites, such as Polish grammar liczne wyjątki can be actually hard, but then, thanks to Varia mild persistence, organizational skills and choice of teachers, all of a sudden you find yourself loosening up and actually talking it, and here comes the whipped cream! To top it up, you get to do it with fellow students who come from all parts of the world and each has his/her own story to tell (tylko po polsku :-). Varia - polecamy!

Nancy from United States Reply Feb 25th, 2017

When I decided to attend Varia for two weeks with my family, I didn't know what to expect. I had taken language classes in the past with varied results. Wow! I was totally impressed with the excellence at Varia! Everyone else has already said it in the other comments but I must also add that the staff is extremely helpful and friendly. They took every effort to help us with the Polish language, with getting around Krakow, and anything else we needed. We felt so warmly welcomed!! The staff creates an atmosphere where it's easy and fun to learn. The teachers are so excellent at keeping the class moving forward at a good pace but also making everyone feels comfortable. It is a real skill to be able to move fast enough to keep interest but not so fast that everyone is lost. The Varia teachers were so amazing at keeping each class interesting and fun and we learned so so much!! I have attended university classes for language in the U.S. and this was by far the best class that I have ever taken. I plan on going back to Varia again and next time I hope to stay longer and take more classes!!

Cristo from Spain Reply Feb 24th, 2017

Dr. Thomas Schaefer from Germany Reply Nov 8th, 2014

Kilka miesący już są miniony od końca mojego kursu w tym szkołe, ale jeszcze chętnie przypominam moje pobyt tam. W ogóle nie przypadam na pochlebstwo, ale jednak jeszcze leży mi na serce bardzo dokładnie wyrażić jak następuje: kiedy myślę o tym szkołe kojarzę to zawsze z nastrójem jasnym. To nie jest żadnej przesady: każda(!) z tych kobiet tam - czy to w administracji lub u nauczycielkach - usmiechająca, każdego dnia i każdej godzine i to bez wyjąktku! Nigdy tam widziałem inny twarzy! Nigdy tam trafiłem innego nastroju! Każda z tych kobiet zawsze przyjemna, stałe pomocna! To w zasadzie w naszym codziennośćą jest tak rzadko, więc im więcej jest warto podkreslić. I nauczycielki szczególnie - jak one starały się rozszerzać nasze zasób slów w kierunkie potrzebnie, dały one nam nowe slowa, który można stosować. Każda(!) moich trzy nauchycielek miała różny tryb postępowania i mi dała wartościowe wparcie na swoim obszarze. Bardzo trzeba uznawać ich niezwykłe zaangażowanie! Tylko jest jeden poważna niekorzyść związane do Krakowy: miasto jest tak idealnie, że potem będzie trudno znależć inne pięknie miasta w Polsce! Trzeba być przygotowany do tego.

Marjana from Ukraine Reply Oct 3rd, 2014

Droga Varia, Przepiękny, świetny, wspaniały. Jeszcze dużo synonimόw można wymienić żeby opisać moji wrażenia od Varii i Krakόwa. Poziom studij jest bardzo wysoki. Zawsze kiedy coś pytałam nauczycieka chętnie opowiadała. Teraz już leksze po polsku pisać oraz rozmawiać. Na zajęciach zawsze było ciekawie. Oprόcz tego, Krakόw i okolice są bardzo malowniczi. Więc, studiowanie poskiego w pojednanju z wycieczkami to bardzo pięknie spędzanie urlopu.

I really like different languages. Unfortunately, I do not know many of them. The Polish language is great and it sounds mysteriously and proud. This winter I took a decision to learn Polish. I'm very happy that I've found the Varia Polish Language Center. This is a perfect place to kick your brain so that it really works in Polish mode. I would like to say many thanks to Varia staff for work they are doing. They successfully apply individual approach to students with different needs. I highly recommend Varia Center in beautiful Kraków to anyone who wants to enjoy and learn/improve amazing Polish language, diverse Polish culture and nice city

Stanley from New Zealand Reply Apr 17th, 2014

Varia was excellent, the teachers are very engaging and enthusiastic so each lesson is something to look forward to. The vocabulary is generally the most important things you need to know on first arriving to a country rather than words that are not crucial at the beginning. Apart from complex ideas everything was explained in Polish from the beginning, so there was consistent listening and comprehension practise throughout the lesson. Even after just one month the language is starting to sound more familiar, thanks very much guys, awesome course.
