Editor's review

Her Majesty's bastion of British culture can be tracked down on the eastern side of the Main Market Square. Head upstairs for English newspapers, internet access and assorted info about the quarrelsome family that is the British Isles. The Council regularly co-operates with other institutions, both local and national, organizing festivals and one-off events. They also have a wide range of courses available at all levels.

For someone with a British passport, you have a depressingly poor command of the English language. Also, what's wrong with a UK visitor wanting to visit the Schindler's Museum? I fail to see your point. My point is that the British Council in Poland is supported by UK taxpayers (myself included) and as taxpayers we could save money by shutting the British Council down. After all, it does not represent good value for money, and the information they should be providing can be found elsewhere. In short, the British Council is an anachronism, so let's get rid of it...

The British Council in Krakow simply seems to be a glorified language school - frankly this sort of role is best done by language schools in the private sector, without support from public funds.

New teacher training course for those who have completed the CELTA course is starting Summer 2011. The YL extension course is intended to complement the Cambridge CELTA course, equipping successful candidates with the skills to teach English successfully to young people.

It is an internationally recognised qualification awarded by the University of Cambridge. For more:

Complete waste of UK taxpayers money, and would be delighted to see it shut down. We took the time to visit their offices on our stay in Krakow, and were greeted by a bunch of jobsworths with absolutely no knowledge of the city or even an air of caring. We asked for directions to the Schindler's Museum, and they sent us completely the wrong way, to some godforsaken museum near the railway station.

British Council - your time is up!
