Like most schools in Europe, Polish schools have been closed due to COVID-19 for a few weeks already. One of the possible remedies for this situation is distance learning, which allows educational content providers such as MSM Studio to help schools, teachers, and students by offering them high-quality e-learning courses.
A group of Polish educational publishers and content providers have joined forces and made their content available to Polish schools and individual students for free during the virus outbreak. Dozens of interactive courses, tests and various resources can be found and used on dzwonek.pl, the most popular learning management system in Poland (“dzwonek” is Polish for “the school bell”). All you need to do to access all the content on dzwonek.pl is sign in.
When MSM Studio received an invitation to take part in this valuable initiative, we decided to join without the slightest hesitation. We are happy that hundreds of students can use our interactive English course called Balloon to brush up their English while waiting for the pandemic to finish and schools to re-open.
