About us

Our origins:

It started in a small room on Regent Street and from then it has grown dynamically from acorn to oak. Since 2004 it has been located on Great Titchfield Street, close to Oxford Circus, in the very heart of London. It has been a home to over 7000 people who can now speak Polish thanks to Polword.
