Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Everything (during the lessons) is in Polish, even if you have no knowledge of the language. Participating in the school's social activity programme makes the stay even better (even if you think it's not "your type of people", you might be surprised).

It is a really nice place and the teachers are nice, helpful and understanding.

I have just finished the Polish course and I'm excited. Kracow's teachers have been professional and friendly, as excellent has been the homestay. The organization was great as a whole. This summer I think I will repeat the experience, but maybe for a longer period of time. Kind regards and happy holidays. Marco.

You should definitely take part in the freetime activities - and spend some time outside of class in the school.

I'm very satisfied, I have learned a lot - even if it was exhausting - but that was also the intention- I will definitely repeat this. Moreover, I would recommend the school at anytime.

The central location is very good; the school can be easily reached by public transport. And in a few minutes, you are in the old town of Krakow. The staff is very motivated and has a wonderful way of imparting language and culture. The patience and perseverance of the teachers is very commendable. Each lesson had a relation to the everyday life. It has given me extraordinary pleasure. If I have the opportunity again, I will be happy to return to this school for another course.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss
Staying with a family is very worthwhile. It creates connections and promotes a mutual understanding. And it gives you the opportunity to practice the language.

It was a short time decision by me to take part in a language course at Glossa. The school contacted me immediately and by exchange of a few emails I have got all required information, e.g. how to get from the airport to my host family, how much it costs
