At KLUB DIALOGU Polish Language School, we specialise in comprehensive and uniquely designed courses that are aimed towards improving our students knowledge in a more targeted and specific way.
One such program we offer is a GRAMMAR PROGRAM, aimed at students at A2 level who wish to focus solely on this difficult aspect of our language. This course is also unique in the fact that some students decide to join it concurrently with their current course in our school.
During all of our lessons, the GRAMMAR COURSE included, we don’t like the idea of ‘dumbing’ down grammar explanations, making everything ‘too simplistic’ or crude, so we make an effort to teach grammar principles in a detailed yet effective and understandable way.
We recently finished a grammar course that consisted of a group of 7 people, all eager to improve their Polish understanding and speaking. In fact, our student Richard, who took part in the course, said that if one decides to take part in such classes, it shows that they are serious about learning the language. Why is that the case? Well, to join such a course is a leap of faith in yourself, as just simply attending class and forgetting about it until the next meeting just doesn’t cut it… As Richard said, “it’s necessary to go home and practise afterwards”. The course itself is a strong foundation to self-learning; he said, however, that without such a course, which is “well-structured and organised”, actually taking that step with Polish grammar is immensely difficult alone. Our classes provided a backbone to all other aspects of Polish language learning.
During the course, there was a situation with a student who just couldn’t grasp the concept of when a noun in the basic form ends with an ‘a’, it’s most likely a feminine word. However, Sandra, our teacher and certified speech therapist, is “infinitely patient”, explaining everything when and where it was necessary, and, in the end, the student understood!
We believe that learning Polish grammar shouldn’t be conducted by the book and in a colourless way. No matter how advanced someone is in the subject, sometimes our grammar is a mammoth task. That’s why there’s always fun to be had and countless laughs during our meetings!
What about from the teachers perspective? They’re interesting lessons to lead, as it’s different type of course than ‘regular’ courses. Each lesson, all were involved with a different grammar case, giving lessons a lot of structure every time. Each meeting also involved parts of theory as well as learning cases in specific situations along with practical tasks which helped students come out of their shells and enjoy the lessons a lot!
Anyone can join such a course. From any background and with any reason to learn Polish. They just have to be prepared to learn intensely, put in work and then see amazing results.
