Polish language classes for foreigners, organised by the Municipal Library of Lodz, have started.
Last week saw the first encounter with the Polish language for foreigners as part of the “Library for Everyone” project. At 3:00 pm, fourteen Belarusians, who are under the care of the “Belarusians in Lodz” Foundation, grouped in the Gdanska Library in Lodz.
– I am very happy to participate in free classes – says one of the participants in Belarusian. – Once I have learned the basics of the language in a country that is foreign to me, it will be easier to do shopping or go to a doctor for health advice.
The project involves delivering Polish language classes from scratch to be held for three months, once a week, for one hour. The classes are given by teachers from the Lodz School of Polish Language for Foreigners Polonus, who pay special attention to the fact that the classes have a very practical dimension – they make it easier for migrants to communicate in a foreign language on a daily basis.
The near future will see as another group of refugees start their learning, and ultimately four groups of migrants are to experience the adventure with the Polish language.
At the same time, there is the launch of advisory meetings for migrants, organised under the project “A library for everyone. Lodz, Gdynia, Cracow, Bergen – different cities, a common idea. Increasing access to culture – model Polish and Norwegian solution”.
