KONTAKT is a big private language school offering language courses for older teenagers and adults (English, Spanish, German, French, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Catalan and Polish).

The school also cooperates with schools situated in other European countries (the UK, Malta, Ireland, Spain, Germany, France, Portugal, Italy), offering students language courses abroad.

Since 2012 the school has successfully hosted Erasmus, Erasmus+ and Leonardo  da Vinci trainees from Spain, Germany, Finland, Croatia, Greece, Turkey  etc. The school’s staff is mostly Polish but we’ve also got many native speakers of English, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese.  We accept the internships wchich last from 2 to 12 months. The school offers a free language course (eg.

We believe that teaching languages is much more than practicing grammar structures and new vocabulary. That is why, apart from traditional language courses, we offer  our students lots of additional events and activities, promoting European culture and the idea of learning languages. By hosting a trainee we’d like to further improve cultural awareness of our students and teachers and make our language and cultural program for students more complex and regular. 

The trainee’s tasks will include:

  • organizing and supporting language & cultural events, activities
  • giving guest lectures about his/her country, culture and traditions
  • organizing  language workshops and culture classes
  • leading conversation club
  • teaching Italian to teenage and adult students
  • assisting students with individual learning problems during duty hours at school
  • assisting teachers and students during language courses
  • developing teaching materials, especially those related with cultural topics
  • translation work, preparing materials promoting culture and learning languages for school’s websites and social media
