Language of studies:
DESCRIPTION OF THE STUDIES
Polish is considered to be one of the most difficult languages in the world to master. It is no wonder that it is so – after all, in addition to being beautiful, it is also incredibly complex and malleable. By studying Teaching Polish as a Foreign Language at post-graduate level, you will learn how to effectively explain the intricacies of Polish to foreign learners.
This programme is perfect for those teachers who want to broaden their professional prospects, but it is also great for students who have only just set out on their journey to becoming a teacher.
To become accepted as a student of the Methodology of teaching Polish as a foreign language post-graduate programme, you must be a university diploma holder (BA or higher), as well as having an A2/B2 command of a foreign language.
Over the course of two semesters, you will learn the latest trends in language teaching methodology, supplement your education, and obtain all the formal qualifications necessary to work as a teacher of Polish as a foreign language. This is our business approach, for which Vistula University is so renowned – being the ‘best in practice’.
