On Friday, our students and teachers alike warmly came together at school to celebrate Christmas at our Christmas event. This was a unique opportunity for our staff to share all their Christmas traditions from Poland, and for our students to learn about the special Polish customs!
Our main event was food tasting – the Christmas Eve meal on 24th December in Poland consists of 12 dishes, savoury and sweet, all of which our students had the chance to sample. Along with each dish was a presentation elucidating what it is as well as some history about it, in both English and Polish 🙂
The next activity was decorating gingerbread; a chance to be artistic and create something both beautiful and delicious. This is another big tradition for us in Poland…
Finally, at the end, our very own Santa Claus – Piotr, came to visit us, bearing small gifts to us all! Some of our students also brought small gifts and cards for us – thank you so much!
Coincidentally, we also had 3 birthdays to celebrate on the same day! Our wonderful owner Wiola, and also Maher and Arash.
It was a really amazing event, and a great way to start off Christmas festivities! Thank you to everyone who attended to make it a memorable and extraordinary event!!
We`d appreciate if you`d share with us your customs and traditions for the Christmas period. We`ll be pleased to post it on our FB page!
Do you still believe in Santa Claus?! For us it’s a YES! 😊
Therefore, just like every year, he will come to our school.
Come along for a special and unique event!

We`d like to wholeheartedly thank our students for creating a fantastic atmosphere during the ‚Independence Day’ event in KLUB DIALOGU school last Friday (10th Nov).
Everyone came together to not only play charades and watch a short historical movie, but everyone was also very involved in the Millionaire quiz! Questions touched upon many aspects of Polish culture, lifestyle, and history, but all our students went through it perfectly! Eventually, Pavel from Belarus won the main prize, which was a 200zł voucher for his next course.
Among the other winners were Anju from India and Jaime from Spain; we are proud of all of you, because of your vast knowledge of Poland and Polish!
On Sunday 3rd September, Klub Dialogu school was an integral part of the 8th International Family Picnic, as organised by The Belgian Business Chamber together with Advantage Austria in Poland – Commercial Section of the Austrian Embassy and the Polish-Swiss Chamber of Commerce. The event took place in Musuły and, despite the weather not necessarily being in our favour, was attended by nearly 400 people!
We set up outside, coats on with warm tea but smiling all the while. We had our own area with a table full of fun games, books and activities (all to be conducted all in Polish of course)! Children and adults came over to play our Polish games and some also grabbed the opportunity to take part in our small Polish lesson that we planned.
Overall, it was a really great day! We want to thank everyone who participated in this enjoyable and enriching experience. See you next time!
On the evening of Friday 1st September, Klub Dialogu school hosted a fun-filled, fantastic Northern Irish Evening (run and presented by Jonny, one of our students)!
The event consisted of a presentation about Northern Ireland, which included facts about its geographical structure, the history of Ireland and the subsequent divide, about famous people and not to mention interesting, quintessential Northern Irish cuisine!
Following this, there was an interactive quiz based on the facts we learnt, in which everyone who attended took part, with a prize of a Northern Irish beer at the end! Then came beer tasting and a trip to a traditional Irish pub to sample more Irish beer and to watch the football (actually, we watched 2 football matches simultaneously! Poland vs Denmark, and Northern Ireland vs San Marino).
Thank you to everyone who attended, and again to Jonny for organising an extraordinary event 🙂
On Friday, together with students and friends of Klub Dialogu, we went to the Wisla river for a campfire, games and simply to have fun… We all came together, sitting on deck chairs around a warm fire, and talked and laughed until the early hours of Saturday! We played our version of Chinese Whispers around the circle in a myriad of languages; Polish, English, Chinese and Greek to name a few!
This was the last event of our July summer calendar, and it was certainly memorable and wonderful. We now have a lot of new events in store for August and September coming up!
It`s wonderful when our students want to show their culture to other foreigners learning at our School ! Having Ukrainian Evening, one of our students from Venezuela invited us to SALSA workshop! We know how to teach Polish language and he knows how to move this extravagant dance 😊. The workshop took place at KLUB DIALOGU Polish for Foreigners School. It was a really great experience. The following Saturday we practiced it in Teatro Cubano Club. Now we can say that we teach Polish in salsa rhythm 😊.
This time we invited our students on a display of stereoscopic photos of Warsaw in the 19th and 20th century. Massive Kierbedź Bridge, trams slowly gliding through Krakowskie Przedmieście, market in Sewerynów or people walking in Ujazdowski Park. These and many other pictures of old Warsaw are to see in the Kaiserpanorama (Photoplasticon).
After seeing the exhibition we talked about the differences between the old Warsaw and the modern one during our Polish classes at KLUB DIALOGU School, Polish for Foreigners.
40 people connected to KLUB DIALOGU School took part in an incredible canoeing adventure on Saturday, July, 8th. 20 canoes bravely overcame all obstacles which the Świder river put in our way… Stones, fallen trees, shallows and even fast streams didn`t frighten any of the canoe crew, and everybody (some of us completely wet 😊) persevered and arrived to the landing place.
Tired, but cheerful, smiling and happy we ate a barbecued meal and spent the rest of the stunning day playing football, volleyball, badminton; we grilled sausages on a campfire, sang songs and spent time all together. 😊 It was a really nice Saturday! Thanks for that to all of you!
During Polish classes there were a lot of memories and stories told by students. Such events make for developing not only Polish language in a real life but also integration between students on their lessons !
All our phonetic workshops help you appreciate the melody of the Polish Language. It doesn`t matter which Polish course you take: regular, semi-intensive or intensive, whether you learn the language at KLUB DIALOGU School or at your place in Warsaw and what level you present ! Everyone is very welcome😊: from beginners to advanced. Not only show we the sound of Polish but also teach how to properly pronounce ŻÓŁTA ŻABA ŻARŁ ŻUR and what is the difference between “cieszę się” and “czeszę się” 😊. If you`d like to learn it and show off your proficiency – come to our workshops and classes !
