The Centre for Polish Studies (Centrum Kształcenia Języka Polskiego in Polish) is a Warsaw-based school of Polish language. The school organizes courses in Warsaw, Sopot and Cracow. It is a private institution established in 2000 by Anna Jurewicz-Sawa, a teacher of Polish as a foreign language.

The Centre for Polish Studies promotes itself as a school with a mission of popularizing Polish culture and language among foreigners. Their website reads: “Our mission is to help foreigners get to know not only Polish, but also Poland: we believe that language, although it is key to understanding a country and its people, is not enough – therefore, we also teach our students culture, economy and history of Poland”.[1]
