Human to Human is a bilingual (Polish and English) primary school located in the Ursus district of Warsaw. It is a school where learning goes hand in hand with comprehensive education and upbringing as well as support for Multidimensional Development.
“At our school we believe in an education that explores new and open philosophies for learning. We have highly qualified staff in areas of Sciences, Arts, Math, and Languages (native speaker of English from the USA) who work together to find creative and fun ways to teach their students. Students will feel welcomed in our inclusive school where both the staff and students are encouraged to speak openly and honestly to one another.“
Bilingualism practitioners and researchers claim that a child is naturally bilingual if they are exposed to two languages. Therefore, in our school we teach in two languages, Polish and English. Beginning from pre-school class ‘zero’ throughout primary and secondary education we ensure that our students are immersed in the English language.
What makes bilingualism at H2H unique?
It is a multifaceted approach, teaching methods, quality of lessons, and most importantly, the number of lessons conducted in English in a week.
General English – A course where students discover the beauty of the English language. We focus on developing all four language skills (speaking, writing, reading, listening), broadening vocabulary, and ensuring our students are not only fluent, but also accurate.
Extracurricular English – These are four extracurricular obligatory lessons (description here). Our aim is to immerse our students in English, also provide them with engaging activities and instilling interest in various areas such as science, culture or art.
CLIL – Content and Language Integrated Learning – The curriculum subject content (at H2H: maths, physics, biology and chemistry) is taught through English.
Interdisciplinary Projects – The name is pretty self-explanatory. Our aim is for the students to perceive English language as a tool for communicating valuable cultural and subject content. We place great importance on international collaboration, video conferences amongst others.
English Outside the Classroom – We ensure that our students communicate with their language teachers in English (or other foreign languages) outside the classroom, e.g. canteen, corridor, field trip.
Children aged 6-15 and 15-18
“We give our students the feeling that school is a place where they can learn, feel the joy of success, discover their potential and possibilities. Competent and experienced teachers are professionals who know how to lead a student to fully develop his/her potential and talent.”
