Polish Language and Culture Level 1

Introduces both the spoken and written language and aims to provide students with the vocabulary and skills needed to conduct simple conversations and read and brief texts. Comprehension and expressive use of this inflected language requires an understanding of its basic grammar which is introduced through the study of several noun cases as well as past, present and future verb tenses. Structured classroom activities are designed to give students practical skills for immediate use and as a foundation for further study. (Cześć, jak się masz? I: Spotykamy się w Polsce - Hi, how are you? We meet in Poland)


Polish Level Language and Culture 2

This course reinforces and expands upon the skills introduced in Level One and aims to provide students with a more sophisticated command of the language. Students are exposed to short newspaper and magazine articles that they learn to read with the help of a dictionary and that serve as a basis for conversational activities. Information about Polish culture is also presented to enhance student appreciation and use of the language. As their vocabulary expands, students begin to engage in more complex conversations on a range of everyday topics. (Cześć, jak się masz? I: Spotykamy się w Polsce - Hi, how are you? We meet in Poland)



Since communication in a foreign language requires an understanding of the cultural context, our aim is to teach you the living language through carefully selected textbooks, newspaper and magazine articles and other relevant materials, rather than have you repeat and memorize tourist phrases.

Over the past thirty years, we have reviewed many university-level Polish textbooks and have selected Cześć, jak się masz? I: Spotykamy się w Polsce (Hi, how are you? We meet in Poland) (Universitas) as the one that best fulfill the objectives of our students in beginning and intermediate levels. Teachers provide suggestions for texts and supplementary materials at the higher levels. Books may be purchased at the Barnes and Noble Boston University Bookstore, 660 Beacon Street, Boston or on-line on Amazon.com.



Tuition for the Polish program at all levels is $489. There is a non-refundable $35 registration fee for first-time students only.

In addition to our core program, we offer immersion programs which cover levels 1 to 5 of our core program in 6 weeks (4 weeks in summer). Tuition for the immersion program is $2,445.

Please note that our immersion program hours may change depending on how many students register for the course.

Private instruction offers students an opportunity to work one-on-one with an instructor at their own pace. The instructor carefully selects materials and plans lessons to effectively meet the student's goals and individual learning style.

Private programs offer a flexible schedule and a customized curriculum. A minimum of 20 hours of instruction with one or two classes (each 90 or 120 minutes) per week is the suggested module, but dates, times and content can be arranged according to your requirement.


Immersion programs are designed to teach the equivalent of levels 1 to 5 of the Institute's regular core programs in one 6-week or 4-week, 90-hour sessions. Classes meet Monday through Friday, 3 hours a day in 6-week programs/4.5 hours a day in 4-week programs).

The main goal of these programs, which meet in small classes of 4 to 12, is to help students, from day one, to increase confidence in their ability to use their new language in a wide range of real-life situations and improve their oral skills as they progress from level to level.
