What students liked about Polish Language School, Sopot
I liked the friendly and professional staff and their willingness to be flexible in terms of which group you worked with. The teacher paced the lessons appropriately and most importantly, listened to feedback from individuals who were at different levels. I chose my own accommodation but saw where a friend on the course was staying and the place was beautiful (really spacious and the owner was lovely). Most of all, I liked that the school considered ways to ensure the groups could meet to talk and get to know each other. Realistically, these types of courses are completed by people who yes, want to learn the language, but also want to immerse themselves in the language while spending time with others doing the same - i.e. socialising is such a huge part of the course and although the school cannot guarantee you will meet people you can spend time with, they can certainly do a lot to facilitate this and I thought they did this really well by having two breaks during the day (one 30 minutes long so plenty of time to get to know each other and figure out who you get along with as well as to nip to the local shop to practise your Polish in the real world!) - I made a couple of great friends who I know I will keep in touch with and actually spent my time practising Polish and learning about the cultures of Czech Republic, Slovakia, Ukraine, Switzerland, Italy (and more about Germany too). We were all at different levels in our Polish studies and were able to practise some of what we had learned together. Again, this is not something you pay for as it cannot be included in the course but I do think it's worth mentioning because not all schools will consider how to ensure opportunities for 'mingling'. I was very happy with the course, I got exactly what I expect from courses like these and I will return as soon as time and money permit. Also: Sopot is stunning so the school could not be better located.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Make sure you head to the pier and the surrounding area. Walk along the promenade for access to beautiful restaurants and views. This is also the easiest (and most pleasant) way to walk through Sopot to various destinations such as the train station or the school. Make sure to visit the nearby cities e.g. Gdańsk. When booking accommodation, and I cannot stress this enough, whether you book privately or through the school, ensure it is a non-negotiable that your room not face street 'aleja niepodległości'. This is the main street in Sopot and throughout summer it is the busiest and noisiest street in Sopot (it seemed!) - day and night. It is also heavily lit with huge street lights and for this reason, in case you cannot control where you sleep, you should demand your room have black-out curtains. I have it on good authority that you should also request your accommodation have sufficient bedrooms for all inhabitants (if booking through the school) i.e. you don't want your host sleeping in the living room!
Other comments: I loved my experience and definitely recommend the school (and will be returning) - I would offer only one or two suggestions for improvement which would be to update the technology used - I wouldn't expect full lessons to be added to PowerPoint (because I have to do this as a teacher myself and it is an enormous waste of time) but perhaps words you know for sure you will write on the board, could be on a slide to avoid wasting time writing them on the board by hand. I would also recommend more opportunities to practise what has been learned in an interactive manner so actually going outside (weather permitting) to practise directions or through the use of task-based conversations in class (prompt cards dictating how the conversation should flow and what details you should uncover). We all want to get to the point of being conversational because we can practise the grammar in our own time so a better balance of 'learn and practise' would be ideal.
In my 5-day introductory Polish course, the school offered great learning opportunities with intensive lessons in small groups. This is the right place for anyone who wants to learn the language quickly. Good organization, coffee machine and internet, optimal location to the city, accommodation and restaurants complete the program.

I was there at the end of September, which is still considered high season, but the number of students in the group was quite small, 2-4 people.

Positive aspects of school: I was there at the end of September, which is still considered high season, but the number of students in the group was quite small, 2-4 people.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: If you are a beginner, you need to book at least 3 weeks and study very hard. And at A1 level you'll get results within a week, but you will miss Poland, when you get back home.
Other comments: Nice and easy-going girls. The atmosphere is friendly and homely.
Friendly, helpful staff. Pleasant, relaxed interaction. Individual, attentive care in small classes.
