English Teaching

English Language Teacher with YLs for Bilingual Primary School in Poland

International House Bielsko was established in 1993 and has a very solid reputation in the local community. Since 2014 the school has been running a Bilingual Primary School “Primary Steps,” with approx. 200 children between 7 and 14 years old.

Alongside the Polish Curriculum, the school provides intensive English classes for all children. We also run a very successful STEM program, which teaches integrated Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics through the medium of English. In addition, the school’s Forest School program provides opportunities for children in years 1-3 to further develop their English skills through outdoor activities in a local woodland setting. Quite a lot of students have native, or near native proficiency in English.
