Summer Language Academy – English or French summer courses at an A2 and B1 level
These are intensive English and French language courses. They take place in August before the start of the academic year. They are designed to help students reach the required level of competency to take full advantage of the bilingual academic environment of the College. Learn more about the Summer Language Academy here.
Regular language classes during the academic year
They take place twice per week and are 60 minutes long. There are two semesters: September – December and January – April. We offer courses in the following languages: English, French, Russian, Polish, Spanish, Italian, Arabic and German (in cooperation with Goethe Institute). We deliver lessons at all CEFR levels (pre-A1 – C2). All participants must take a placement test (except beginner levels). Minimum group size is 6 participants. The lessons are delivered by our highly-qualified and experienced team of teachers with a proven track record in language teaching and a number of publications to share between them.
In order to help our students meet their professional goals (Blue Book applications, EPSO competition, etc.) as well the demands of the job market, we offer two examination sessions: one per semester. These examinations test all languages and levels of the courses which we provide. It is at each participants' discretion to indicate the level at which they wish to take the test. The tests correspond to the three core levels A, B and C as per the CEFR scale. All CEFR competencies are tested in these tests. We issue certificates based on the test results at levels: A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2. The tests are available to all Natolin students and staff. Examinations may be taken without prior course participation.
Polish Survival Course
A short, intensive course for those who have never learned Polish before which aims to prepare the participants for every-day situations in Poland. The participation in the course is voluntary. The course takes place in September and October.
In order to provide Natolin students with opportunities to bolster their intercultural competences and create an environment conducive to integrational learning, we run workshops and reading groups. The aims of these activities are providing insight into important aspects of intercultural dialogue; promoting inclusiveness, integrational attitudes and openness for cultures, languages and customs; integrating the multi-cultural community of the College of Europe under the oversight of the presenters/instructors. The workshops are scheduled at various times throughout both semesters with group size limited to 20 participants. The dates and times for these events will be published in the academic calendar.
