Start Learning Polish

The Best Ways to Start Learning Polish

One of the reasons Cactus language learners choose to learn Polish is to discover the fascinating culture and complex history of Poland, one of the most significant countries in Eastern Europe. As Polish is not only spoken in Poland, but also by the Polish diaspora across the world, especially in the UK, Polish is an increasingly popular language to learn. In addition, if you have an interest in the academic or diplomatic world in Eastern Europe, then Polish is definitely a language you should learn.

With so many language learning options available ranging from evening classes to online courses, it is often difficult to know where to start your Polish language learning journey. It’s important to assess which type of language course or combination of courses is the most appropriate for you. To help you make the right choice, the experts at Cactus have compared the benefits of each alternative and provided a comprehensive list of language learning options to get you started.

Group Polish Courses

Evening classes in the UK are ideal if you want to learn Polish after work or your studies. They are a great opportunity to study the language with a qualified, native or bilingual teacher and will help you learn Polish quickly in a sociable environment. These courses also offer excellent preparation for a language holiday abroad, as they will enable you to understand the basics of Polish prior to your trip. Are you a beginner?

Cactus offers Polish evening courses in the UK:
Face-to-face Polish Courses
Online Polish Courses

Polish Private Tuition

If you can’t fit a group language course in your schedule or you prefer to study in your own time, one-to-one Polish classes are the perfect solution. Cactus offers both face-to-face and Skype Polish language lessons. These are tailored to your needs and can take place anywhere, anytime.

Online Polish courses

Online language courses are an excellent way to start learning Polish and to practise a language when and where you want. Such courses can’t fully replace lessons with a qualified teacher who will not only motivate you throughout your language learning journey, but will also answer any questions you may have. Nevertheless, they are an excellent way to supplement your lessons with a teacher. As it can be difficult to choose quality resources from the considerable number of courses available online, Cactus has carefully assessed and listed free online Polish resources for your reference.

TEFL – Teaching English as a Foreign Language

Living abroad is a dream that many long for, and it is often said to be the best way to achieve fluency in a foreign language. For fluent English speakers, one of the easiest ways to live abroad is by teaching English as a Foreign Language. You can become an English teacher abroad by taking a TEFL course with Cactus. You do not have to be a native speaker but you need a C1 level of English to take the course. We offer CELTA and Trinity Cert TESOL preparation courses across the world, including in Poland.
