Learning Polish

Polish is an integral part of the curriculum at The British School Warsaw for both native Polish speakers and those learning it as a foreign language. Children start learning Polish in Year 1, both in native and non-native programmes.

Polish Curriculum

The native Polish programme at the school is based on the Polish Podstawa Programowa (curriculum). It is obligatory for any student with Polish citizenship. Other students whose posses a high level of Polish can also join the native classes. The remaining students attend Polish as a Foreign Language (non-native classes). We follow the English National Curriculum for modern foreign languages in non-native Polish lessons.

Polish Language Tuition

In Year 1, children have 90 minutes of Polish tuition per week. In Years 2-4, the classes are organised into 45 minutes lessons and occur 3 times per week. When students reach Year 5, the number of Polish lessons increases to 5 per week and this continues until Year 11.

Students in Year 10 (klasa 8) take the Polish National Exam, ‘Egzamin Ósmoklasisty’. Year 11 students take OKE Polish Gimnazjum Exam or AQA GCSE in Polish as a Foreign Language.

At IB level, Polish is optional and can be taken at a Standard or Higher Level.
