TEFL TESOL Course Poland - Wejherowo

New TESOL Course Location Opening January 2009.

Poland is a microcosm of Europe--a land of dramatic contrasts: historic cities, sleepy villages, Old World traditions, as well as New World comforts and conveniences. You can gaze at majestic, snow-covered mountains one day and bask on sunny Baltic beaches the next. You can sleep in a classic historic palace or castle and dance the night away in a swinging nightclub. Poland has it all. Our TEFL centre in Wejherowo is in the north of Poland, in the Pomorskie or Pomeranian(as known in English) province. The town, home to 47,000 people, is in a valley nestled between the Reda and Leba rivers, surrounded by picturesque forested hills. It’s a paradise for all who love nature. From here, it’s a twenty-minute train ride to the coastal towns and cities of Gdynia, Gdansk, or Sopot – all located along the Baltic Sea, featuring beautiful sandy beaches that invite one to sunbathe and relax. The Old Town of Gdansk is rich in history and beautiful architecture. Gdansk, as the senior city of the tri-city team, boasts all the amenities of a modern European metropolis. Gdynia is equally well equipped, with cinemas, restaurants, libraries, etc. Sopot is the posh party town of Poland, where the rich and famous come to let down their hair. It’s a fantastic, lively, vibrant, busy city with many places to entertain. In winter, snow falls on Wejherowo. The area becomes a winter wonderland with everything winter sports fans are looking for, including skiing and skating. You can build a snowman and reminisce on your childhood. How about a horse-drawn sled tour through the winter forest with beautiful, snow-covered trees bending under the mass of snow? Enjoy a cup of tea or hot chocolate after the ride while warming your hands in front of a fire place at a nearby restaurant.

Poland Climate

Similarly the summers are cool and rainy or hot and dry. Generally, summer is usually warm and the most pleasant time to visit, but the plentiful sunshine is mixed together with rain. Spring starts in March with temperatures varying from -1 to +20 C, until about April or May. July is the hottest month, but the rest of the summer is also quite warm with temperatures from 21 to 32 C. The month of September is initially warm, soon after, the days become colder until December, when winter begins, and the temperature drops to below zero. Winter lasts from December to March and includes shorter or longer period of snow. In the mountainous regions, snow often lies until May.
