FAQs

Do you need to be a teacher at an IH school in Poland?

No, the event is open to ALL English language teachers from any school worldwide. In the past, we have also had many local non-IH teachers of English and local state school teachers. There is a small fee of 60PLN for non-IH teachers.

What are my transport options getting to the event?

Toruń is situated in north-central Poland. Bydgoszcz airport (BZG) is 45 mins away by car or bus. Gdańsk airport (GDN) and Poznan airport (POZ) are both 2 hrs away with good train and bus connections. Warsaw has two airports. The main one is Warsaw Okęcie (WAW) and there is also Warsaw Modlin (WMI) which serves low-cost airlines. Warsaw is about 3hrs from Toruń by bus or train.

Flixbus offers good, cheap coach connections from many cities to Toruń. Advance booking is essential via their website.

PKP trains are now very modern and comfortable and you can book online in English!

What are the nearest car parks to the venues?

The event is divided into 2 venues. The main venue (where the workshops take place) is International House (ul. Legionów 15). There are no parking spaces directly at the school. However, you can park around the corner in ul. Bawarczyków or at the car park behind Cinema City (Czerwona Droga). In the afternoon, we will all move to Hotel Filmar. There is paid parking at the hotel.

What can/can't I bring to the event?

There's no need to print out your ticket as your details will already be registered. Please just bring a pen, notebook and ideas!

How do I sign up for the different workshops?

You sign up for the workshops on the day. Once you have registered, go up to the 1st floor. There you will find the sign up sheets in the corridor. Due to limited space, the workshops are on a first come, first served basis.

Will I receive a certificate of attendance?

Yes, all participants will receive a certificate of attendance. This will be given at the end of the plenary session.

Will there be catering at the event?

Participants will be welcomed with pizza upon arrival (and there'll be a fresh batch of pizza delivered during the lunch break). There will also be tea, coffee and soft drinks available.
