The goals of the Kosciuszko Foundation Teaching English in Poland Program are educational and cultural in nature. They support the philosophy and the rationale of the Polish National Commission for UNESCO in the formation of summer language immersion camps for Polish students. The Kosciuszko Foundation's TEACHING ENGLISH IN POLAND PROGRAM goals are:
The primary emphasis of the program will be to focus on the students' listening and conversational skills in the English language. Reading and writing skills will be addressed and encouraged only when applicable.
It is not the intention of the program to Americanize students nor to proselytize political or religious concepts and views. Respect for the culture, traditions, and educational standards of Poland must be maintained. Familiarizing the Polish students with American culture should enable them to converse comfortable and intelligently on a variety of of American topics.
