Wroclaw supports foreigners
Since the beginning of the school year, authorities in the Polish city of Wroclaw will open classes with teaching conducted in the Ukrainian language.
This is reported by the press service of the Lviv City Council.
The decision was motivated by an increased number of Ukrainians in Poland, mayor of Wroclaw Rafal Dutkiewicz reports.
"Ukrainians are the largest group of foreigners in Wroclaw. Therefore, municipal support programs will focus on them. If Ukrainians continue settling down in Wroclaw, which is good for the city - we would like to let these people feel that their children, while staying in Wroclaw, will still be in touch with culture of their country," said Dutkiewicz.
Also, Polish authorities promise to launch free-of-charge Polish language courses for foreigners to be held in libraries, culture centres and churches.
