Poland – a place to be
We are located in Poland – the 6th most populous and the 6th largest of the European Union’s 27 member states. Most of the country is flat, with an average elevation of 173 meters. Polish is considered to be one of the world’s most difficult languages, but here with us you will quickly and easily learn the basics. 90% of Poles have completed at least secondary education, which is the highest score in the EU, along with the Czechs, Slovaks, and Slovenes.
According to a 2007 UNICEF report on child well-being in rich countries, Poland is the second best of the 25 OECD countries surveyed in terms of “behaviours and risks” (healthy lifestyle, lack of violence), and third best for educational well-being. The same reports also finds that Poland has the lowest pecentage of overweight young people (7.1%).
We work mainly in two cities – Wroclaw in the south-western part of Poland, near to Germany and Czech Republic and in Warsaw, the capital. However, for the purposes of paricular projects, we are able to organize internships, workshops in any part of Poland – we have done it already i.a. in Cracow, Ostrowiec Swietokrzyski or the coastal villages at the Baltic Sea.
Poland is a host for many interesting concerts, performances, festivals and all kinds of cultural events that are gaining international recognition – for instance International Chopin Piano Competition or summer Open Air Music Festival.
