Board is not provided. Pocket money is not provided. Students can be advised by SEO or LEO how much money they would need for their stay in Poland.

Language requirements

Knowledge of English is mandatory for all host cities - at least intermediate level. Most of the students and young people in Poland speak English very well, so as you have at least B2 level you should be able to communicate freely with the hosting team.
