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".

W szkole „Varia” byłem tylko na trzech kursach w latach 2018, 2019 i 2020. Ten kurs jest więcej niż kurs języka polskiego. Niespodziewanie dla mnie on zamienił się na kurs entuzjazmu i kreatywności. Za każdym nowym słowem czy regułą gramatyczną, że spotkałem tam, kryła się ogromna miłość do języka polskiego jego lektorek. A teraz myślę, że czekanie do przyszłego roku jest za długie. Znowu jadę na kurs semestralny. I dlaczego? Dlatego że Varia jest źródłem entuzjazmu, czar lektorek i wszystkich pięknych Pań w szkole. Ponadto, tam można nabywać wiele wiedzy języka polskiego. Ale najważniejsze: moi nauczyciele są więcej niż profesjonaliści na ich terenie, ale również urodzene pasjonaci i bardzo ciekawe osobowości. Dziękuję, Varia!

Super école ! Je recommande sans hésiter :) les profs comme les étudiants que j'y ai rencontrés sont tous très sympas et les cours très pertinents. Je conseille des cours intensifs au début, afin de ne pas être trop vite frustré...

Po pierwsze, gdybym nie spotkała tej szkoły, moje życie studenckie w Polsce już by się skończyło.Nauczycielki są bardzo mili i pomagająca i zawsze nadrabiają to, czego mi brakuje. Posiadają również doskonałe wykształcenie i doświadczenie, dzięki czemu uczą do nas szeroki zakres wiedzy o Polsce, nie tylko języku.Sekretarki też zawsze wspierają naszą naukę.Nie mogę im wyrazić całej wdzięczności słowami. Dziękuję zawsze!

Bardzo podobało mi się mój doświadczenie u Varii. Nauczyciele są mili i ciekawi, i nawet jeśli mają swoje plany, są otwartci do zmień, gdybymy chcieli czegoś specyfycznego się uczyć. Ceny też są fair, tematy ciekawe i różne, rekomenduję! Tylko jedna rzecz chcialabym widzieć, i to jest że intensywny kurs byłby 4 tygodnie, a nie 3. Oprócz tego, bardzo fayjna szkoła!

My experience with Varia is that everyone, from teachers to administrative personal, is just amazing! Teachers are not only skillful but also empathetic and patient, they usually make sure that all the students in the class understand the subjects reviewed. Administrative personal has one of the best Customer Service approaches in Krakow, therefore it is an additional incentive to proceed with this investment.

Make a strong effort not to target people over 50 with hostility, obvious disinterest, and condescending remarks. It is so obvious - and not attractive at all. This happened to two men in my class - both of them had traveled thousands of miles to Krakow - both left after just one week.

Im Sommer habe ichzwei Wochen lang bei Varia einen Intensivkurs gemacht. Wir hatten zwei wunderbare Lehrerinnen (Ela und Kamila) - von denen wir sehr, sehr viel gelernt haben. Der Unterricht war wirklich intensiv und hat viel Spass gemacht - ich glaube, ich habe kein einziges Mal auf die Uhr geschaut. Auch das "Rahmenprogramm" ist mit viel Liebe erstellt worden. Ein Kino-Besuch auf den Dächern von Kraków und der Karaoke-Abend sind mir in besonderer Erinnerung geblieben. Vor allem aber: Die herzliche und freundliche Atmosphäre an der Schule habe ich so noch nirgendwo erlebt. Danke für die Zeit, die ich bei und mit euch verbringen durfte! Hella

A really great school! Enthusiastic teachers, great atmosphere, very positive staff, all with one common goal: To make you learn Polish as good as possible. The courses are all about speaking Polish as much as possible, English is kept to a minimum since practice makes you learn! Very structured and clear lecture material, all provided by professional teachers.

Next to learning they organize fun activities such as a bike trip, cooking Polish food or going for a Kareoke night which creates a bond between the students and the school staff.

All in all a very positive experience and I gained a lot in my understanding and speaking skills in Polish!

I had a wonderful time at Varia this summer. The intensive course was over so quickly and I was extremely sad to leave! I got to know interesting people from all over the world and we all got on really well.

Without exception the staff were fantastic. Everyone was so kind, helpful, friendly and very patient. Nothing was too much for them. It was like one big family. The atmosphere in the classroom was very relaxed and the teachers made learning Polish fun. I actually began to believe it could be possible to learn this difficult language!! Many thanks to all of you! I definitely want to go back next year :-)

I took part in a summer intensive course and couldn't be more delighted. The teachers were exceptional and the cultural activities after the course not only were great but also helped create a wonderful atmosphere with fellow students and the (very nice) Varia staff. Everything was made easy by the school (from arranging accommodation to advicing on the best things to do and see in the off-time).

I'm already looking forward to comeback next year :)

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!

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!!
