On behalf of the happy refugees, thank you very much for your financial support! How are they doing?

In mid-April 2024, 8 people who attended Polish classes took the state Polish language examination. The exam consisted of a written and oral part and, according to the participants, it was quite difficult.

But the participants are optimistic and believe that they will receive a certificate.

What did this course and exam give them? Here are some quotes from the participants:

When I came to Poland, I started learning Polish, but it was an amateur learning experience. Only when I came here about a year ago, thanks to my knowledge of the language, I found a job in a Polish company and I finally have a good job!”

I am a doctor and in order to have my medical diploma recognized in Poland, I have to pass a lot of medical exams, but also pass a state exam in knowledge of the Polish language. I found out about this after taking the exam. I hope I passed. This Polish course and exam fell out of the blue for me!”

Everyone is very grateful for the help they have received: "Thank you for these two years of support and care."

Two ladies who attended Polish lessons decided not to take the exam and instead learn and gain a new education. We have enrolled them in a kindergarten teacher's assistant course, but we are still collecting funds to pay for the course. This is not a large amount, if 20 people donated $40 each, we would have collected funds!

We sincerely ask for your support. To help, just click here:

On behalf of the wonderful team of refugees, thank you for your help and warm hearts!

I have one more important message. The group wants to continue classes because they have created a support group for themselves, so you can still support this project because after agreeing the date with the participants, we will start another Polish course.


Szczesliwa grupa Ukrainek i Ukrainców…

W imieniu szczesliwych uchodzczyn i uchodzców bardzo dziekujemy za wsparcie finansowe! A co u nich slychac?

W polowie kwietnia 2024, 8 osób, które uczeszczaly na zajecia polskiego, przystapily do panstwowego egzaminu znajomosci jezyka polskiego. Egzamin skladal sie z czesci pisemnej i ustnej i zdaniem uczestników, byl dosc trudny.

Ale uczestnicy sa dobrej mysli i wierza, ze otrzymaja certyfikat.

Co dal im ten kurs i egzamin? Oto kilka cytatów uczestniczek:

Jak przyjechalam do Polski, to zaczelam sie uczyc jezyka polskiego, ale to byla amatorska nauka. Dopiero jak trafilam tu, jakis rok temu, to dzieki znajomosci jezyka, znalazlam prace w polskiej firmie i mam nareszcie dobra prace!”

Jestem lekarka i zeby móc nostryfikowac dyplom lekarza w Polsce, musze zdac mnóstwo egzaminów lekarskich, ale takze zdac egzamin panstwowy ze znajomosci jezyka polskiego. Dowiedzialam sie tego juz po przystapieniu do egzaminu. Licze, ze zdalam. Ten kurs polskiego i egzamin spadl mi jak z nieba!”.

Wszyscy sa bardzo wdzieczni za pomoc, jaka otrzymali: „Dziekujemy za te dwa lata wsparcia i opieki”. 

Dwie panie, które uczeszczaly na lekcje polskiego postanowily nie zdawac egzaminu, a zamiast niego uczyc sie i zdobyc nowe wyksztalcenie. Zapisalismy je na kurs na pomoc nauczyciela przedszkola, ale caly czas zbieramy srodki na oplacenie kursu. To nie jest duza kwota, gdyby 20 osób wplacilo po 40 dolarów, to mielibysmy zebrane srodki!

Bardzo goraco prosimy o wsparcie. Aby pomóc, wystarczy kliknac tu:

W imieniu wspanialej ekipy uchodzczyn i uchodzców, dziekujemy za pomoc i gorace serca!

Mam jeszcze jedna wazna wiadomosc. Grupa chce kontynuowac zajecia, bo stworzyli dla siebie grupe wsparcia, zatem nadal mozna wspierac ten projekt, bo po uzgodnieniu terminu z uczestnikami i uczestniczkami, ruszamy z kolejnym kursem polskiego.
