Editor & Krakow Local
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!
Miła! Dziękujemy za tak wiele miłych słów! Bardzo nam miło, że jesteś naszą studentką :)
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!
Dziękujemy Rebecco :) Weźmiemy pod uwagę Twoją propozycję dotyczącą kursu intensywnego. Gorąco pozdrawiamy!
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.
Dear Jose! Thank you so much for those kind words! You are always wecome at our school :)
Wysoki poziom, bardzo ciekawie opracowany program. Lektorzy na bardzo wysokim poziomie, zawsze przygotowani do zajęć. Dziękuję.
Amazing school! Great teaching methods and very engaging teachers.
I am interested regarding summer semester Polish language courses. I am 40 years old .I want to join summer semester.
Veoma prijateljski i profesionalni - sve dok ne plaćate školarinu u potpunosti. Zatim, rutinska dosada i nezainteresovanost od osoblja i nastavnika.
Hi Lejla, thank you for your review! If there is anything that we should improve, please let us know!
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
Dear Hella! Thank you so much for those kind words! It's been lovely to spent the time with you :) We hope to see you back in Varia in the future!
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!
Dear Guido! Thank you so much for thiv review! We hope that you keep up the good work! And we do hope to see you back at our school in the next years!
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 :-)
Thank you very much! It has been lovely to have you in our school and we are already looking forward to see you back again!
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 :)
Hola Javi! Thank you for the lovely words! And for the great atmoshere you're creating while being at our school! Te esperamos en Varia!
Прекраснейшая школа с крутым составом учителей. Рекомендую.
Bardzo dziękujemy, Paweł! I do zobaczenia z powrotem :)
To czemu dajesz 5 gwiazdek?
Great school, nice, friendly and professional teachers
Thank you very much, Kateryna!
Can't imagine a better place for learning polish.
Awesome people, friendly atmosphere, patient and professional teachers.
I enjoy the time here.
Una scuola a misura di studente dove tutta la squadra cerca di aiutarti con pazienza e un sorriso nelle difficoltà che si incontrano nell'apprendimento del polacco.
Mi sento davvero fortunato a aver trovato una scuola così e mi sento tranquillo nel consigliarla a tutti.
Thank you, Stefano! And we'll see you back soon ;) Do zobaczenia!

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!
Thank you very much, Livia! Pozdrawiamy
Great place, the best teachers, friendly atmosphere :)
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!
Najlepsze kursy jezykowe w jednym z najpiekniejszych polskich miast! Cudowni nauczyciele, mili studenci, ciekawe zajecia, przyjemna atmosfera - wszystko aby nauczyc sie polskiego.:-)
I enjoy the time here and recommend this school to everyone :)
Jestem bardzo szczęśliwa, że uczę się polskiego w Varii, a nie w jakiś innej szkole. Polecam bardzo, bo tutaj pracują najlepsi profesjonaliści, którzy mogą nauczyć każdego
Szkoła bardzo dobra! Zawsze chce sie tam wrócić!
Bardzo Polecam! The best school in Krakow, I studied 2 years at Varia which were amazing, there are very great teachers and proper infrastructure to study =)
I was there 3 times. They are very kind and helpful and knowledge, what can you get there really useful! :)
The best way to learn Polish! In only a few months my level of Polish improved a lot!
I had a great time, the course opened upp my Polish language understanding to the next level. The VARIA Group was wonderfull and Krakow a very beautifull city. I will come back! / best regards from sweden.
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!!
Excellent team! Fantastic methodology, very professional!
Bardzo dziękuję za wszystko!
Było fantastycznie, doskonale.
I am having a Polish course on Skype with a wonderful and very qualified teacher. I never imagined it is possible to learn a language this way, but Varia has a great teaching method and makes it possible.
I had such a wonderful time with Varia. They are very professional, experienced and excited about their teaching. Learning there was fun !!! And Krakow is beautiful! Definitely recommended!
Excellent language school!
Po prostu w tej szkole czuję się jak w domu. Chodzę tam z chęcią . Bardo miła, ciepła atmosfera. Moim zdaniem, najlepsza szkoła w Krakowie. Pozdrawiam wszystkich.
At this school you can meet really very lovely and amazing people! Friendly atmosphere during the lessons and teachers' enthusiasm make a positive input on studying process.
Varia has been the best Polish School that I have ever visited, Super Lovely teachers, wonderful/helpful staff at the reception, nice activities and cosy atmosphere, po prostu genialnie :)
Amazing school to foreigners! I'm in the second semester of study of Polish Language there, because I'm missionary here in Poland and I need the language to evangelize, and I love the course, the style of teaching, the teachers, the place.
It's a beautiful place to study polish, i was studing in Varia in September 2016, my polish skils growed up, i was very satisfied. I recommend Varia.
Great school! Good teachers! I loved in Summer 2016 at the school and the lady where I lived was lovely! I've learned a lot and I'm still taking skype lessons with a great teacher from Varia!
And... Varia ist in a wonderful building in a very beautiful neighborhood in Crakow. Many greetings to all of you and the people who were with me at the school in summer!
Just amazing! I met great people. The teachers are nice and authentic, the classes were relaxing and we were talking a lot in Polish. I would do this again any time. The accommodation was okay and not far from school nor Krakow's night life. I had a good time
Thank you for amazing four weeks in Kraków! I had a really good time with nice people from all over the world. I would really like to come back next year, if i have the time. The teachers and stuff created an amazing atmosphere, where i felt so welcome and cared. It's really the best way to learn or improve your polnish. Dzienkuje i pozdrowienia :*
