As more and more foreigners choose to stay in Poland for longer, Polish cities try to help newcomers adapt to their new communities.

Just like any other city in Poland, Bielsko-Biała has noted a considerable increase in foreign employees in the recent years. Therefore, the city's authorities have announced plans to establish a Centre for Integration of Foreigners in the near future. The centre would assist expats in formal matters and provide them with legal and psychological advice. Apart from that, it has been recently announced that foreign citizens in the region will now have a chance to improve their language skills. How to do that?

If you are a foreigner living and working in Bielsko-Biała, you may be eligible for a free Polish language course, financed by the Municipality of Bielsko-Biała and proposed by the non-profit organisation "Towarzystwo Przyjaciół Bielska-Białej i Podbeskidzia" and the citizens' initiative "Inicjatywa Obywatelska WITAJ". The idea behind the project is to help foreigners get involved in their community and take an active part in the life of the city. As can be read on the website of the Bielsko-Biała City Hall, the course responds to the needs of those foreigners who relocate to Poland for work, but find their lack or poor knowledge of the Polish language to be an obstacle both in the workplace and their social life.

By taking part in this course, the participants have a unique opportunity to improve their confidence, increase their motivation at work and enhance involvment in community-based projects. 

The project is especially dedicated to foreigners in high-demand professions, whose applications will be processed first. All applicants need to work or intend to work in the city of Bielsko-Biała. The course will last four months and end with a certificate of completion. All the classes, which will be held twice a week, will be conducted by qualified teachers and adapted to the individual needs of the participants, including their skills and working times. 

You can enrol in the course online on the website: Course of the Polish Language. The number of participants is limited.
