Reviews of Institutes in Krakow
No Consolate in Krakow.. No English Speakers at this Council British Tax payer, very, very, very Disappointed!!!!!!!!!!!
Employ someone to answer your door whoCAN SPEAK RUDAMENTARY ENGILISH, not grumpy Polish!!!!!!!
Buddhist exhibitions were so fantastic! Saw a performance piece a few years ago, also met Andrzej Wajda (rest in peace) and will always remember it.
I thought it was good, they have a few exhibition halls so spent a few hours there.
Needless to say I have some personal interest in this article. Very enlightening!
Hi! Does anyone knows what exactly do I need to have to visit this classes (I mean: paints, brushes etc.) Thanks in advance!))
Went for the Butoh dance workshop last weekend there. The workshop was outstanding and very powerful. The facilities very high standard, beautiful wooden floor and good lighting. Great atmosphere. The only minus was that I left my fave top there and sadly will probably never see it again as no one from Mangha seemed really helpful in getting to look into it/ look for it:(
I would totally agree that the staff is not really up to much - every time I am there it seems like they would rather not have any visitors. Exhibitions are very small . However, the space, interior and architecture are just superb. The view from the cafe worth the walk from the centre. This place could be such a hit amongst - both tourists and locals!!
@HALINA dAHL 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.
Listen you "MARK FROM ENGLAND " and "MARK MY WORDS "! Self-respecting tourist does not come to Krakow to see Jewish museums !As far as I can see and judge most English weekend tourists from London flihgts are a waste ot time and air-space !!!WHY ? Because they stink bear even if they take the earlliest flight from Gatwick !!!The language is faul !!!They look dirty as well!SOOO , DO NOT TELL ME ABOUT BRITISH COUNCIL WASTING TAX PAYERS MONEY !!!Again , do not come to an extremaly cultured city and compalain ! STAY HOME !!! AND ... YES ...I AM POLISH ... AND YES...I HAVE BRITISH PASSPORT and ...YES... I LIVE IN HOUSTON , TEXAS AND TRAVEL A LOT !!!So , "MARK FROM ENGLAND " do us a fovour and ...YES ...stay home !
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: http://www.britishcouncil.org/poland-celta-extension.htm
a ja uczylam sie tam angielskiego do egzaminu CAE i zdalam na B :) i zajecia z lektorem byly naprawde swietnie prowadzone! generalnie atmosfera w szkole jest naprawde bardzo fajna.poleca,m :)
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!
The British Council is just about to start teacher training courses for people looking to do the CELTA course. Here's a direct link to the page : http://www.britishcouncil.org/poland-celta-krakow.htm
it is free on tuesdays but when i went there was nothing to actually see! there was a small exhibition of pictures from china and nothing else at all. waste of time.
....It's free on Tuesdays! We decided to visit exactly then and were sort of glad we didn't pay, to be honest, but only because they were swapping exhibitions so that only one room was open to us. We did see a great exhibition of Japanese woodcut paintings from various centuries, very beautiful. The gift shop unfortunately is not up to too much (unless you want to buy a Japanese tea set or some incense). Looks like that it would be a great place for concerts and other exhibitions but as we were shooed out I cannot recommend the service.
in fact i am seeking for good univercity to contiune my study there
Have seen some brilliant concerts here in their concert hall - great sound, very elegant space. And of course the museum part is wonderful as well.
Great spot. I came here in 2006. Really different architecture to everything else in Krakow. Good displays too of Japanese art and samurai costumes and swords. Worth crossing the river for, and you get some excellent views of the castle from the Manggha side too...
Absolutely awesome! Great venue with a brilliant atmosphere. Watch out for the special events on posters advertised around the city.
Well, I take it all back - (almost!) The Poster Exhibition which opened today at the Palac Sztuki restored a bit of my faith in this venue. Bsaically, because the show itself is extremely good. Polish Poster art has a great tradition, and this exhibition will show you why. Go now!
What a crying shame! A stunning building in a prime location, that seems to showcase shoddy second-rate work, whilst the Bunkier Sztuki across the road forges forward with excellent exhibitions of contemporary art. Bring in someone with passion and lets see this fantastic old building shine again. A decent cafe too would be a help. A rotten reminder of the bad old days.
