Polish Language Classes

PACIM is working to make classes as safe as possible in response to the COVID-19 public health emergency. Our number one goal is to ensure the health and safety of our students and instructors. All classes are being held online via Google Meet.

PACIM holds three language learning sessions throughout the year:

  • Fall session: September – December
  • Spring session: January – April
  • Summer session: July

Fall classes will begin the week of September 14th. Please register by September 1st.

PACIM reserves the right to cancel a course due to insufficient enrollment or other events beyond our control. In the event a class is cancelled, we will notify you as soon as possible. You may choose to receive a full refund of your registration fee or credit on another class.
