Course Description

Course Profile
A unique approach of this program is found in combining the preparation for the profession of both language and Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) teacher. Students have the opportunity to learn about language education as well as the basics of teaching natural sciences, mathematics, art, music and physical education in integrated education through the use of English. In addition, students will gain knowledge about bilingual education in Europe and around the world, together with comparing educational programs in different international contexts.

An important element of this course is the combination of practice and theory, which is possible, among other elements, also thanks to organizing many study visits to international and bilingual schools in Poland. Students also participate in continuous pedagogical internship in specially selected schools and preschools, both public and private, in which they become acquainted with various approaches to early language teaching and CLIL approach. In addition, students have the opportunity to participate in international projects of both didactic and research nature led by the Faculty of Pedagogy.

All courses are conducted in English. During the course of study students have the opportunity to improve English especially in the area of academic and classroom language. Academic classes take place in small groups of international students, and are conducted with the use of modern technologies, for example to prepare a teacher's portfolio. Classes are taught by Polish and foreign lecturers and practitioners.

Psychological, pedagogical and didactic preparation for the teaching profession in the field of English in preschool and at the first stage of education in primary school is an element of the study program.

Classes take place mainly in the Faculty building (16/20 Mokotowska St.) from Mondays to Fridays according to the academic calendar.

Internships take place in primary schools, both public and non-public, located in Warsaw and the surrounding area, in grades 1-3. Supervision over the course of the internship is carried out by an employee of the Department who is also responsible for the recruitment of and cooperation with mentor-teachers of students in the schools in which the internships take place. They last from the beginning of July to the end of May, both in the first and second year.
