Polish as a Foreign Language: New Context, Regulations and Prospects

Anna Popławska / Roman Wisz
Published Online: 2016-01-29 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/sc-2015-0008


The article provides an overview of the developments in Poland after the collapse of communism in 1989 from the point of view of foreign language teaching, including a swift reorientation and transition from a public school system with Russian as the main foreign language, to a diversified language teaching market focused on teaching English and other languages. A particular stress is placed on a relatively new phenomenon, being an increased demand and new opportunities for teaching Polish as a foreign language to be further promoted as a result of anticipated amendments to legal regulations governing the status and certification of the Polish language.

Keywords: foreign language teaching in Poland; language certificates; Polish as a foreign language
